Monte Carlo is a major district in the small independent country of Monaco located on the French Riviera. Monaco is the world’s second smallest country and gained independence in 1861 following the Franco-Monegasque Treaty.

Gambling became legal in Monaco in 1854. Prince Florestan I attributed to the amended law, but Prince Charles III played a bigger part in the progression, by opening up the gambling industry and arranging the development of the iconic Casino de Monte-Carlo. He was responsible for organizing a half-century permit, allowing gaming rooms to be housed within the luxurious Casino de Monte-Carlo establishment.

Currently, there are a total of five casinos in Monte Carlo. Combined, they provide more than 1000 slot machines and 21 games rooms. All of the venues are managed by Societe des Bains de Mer Monico, who are the biggest employer in the country.
