Casino Marienlyst, Denmark
Casino Marienlyst was Denmark’s first casino and is one of the most elegant in the country. Originally built in 1859 as a so-called inland health resort, the venue was subsequently rebuilt and expanded in 1902, when the casino was added. On that occasion, the Crown Prince – later King Frederik VIII – granted Marienlyst permission to run a casino with cash bets and pay-outs, to fly the swallow-tailed flag and to use the royal crown in its logo.
Until the new Danish Gambling Act was passed in 1990, Marienlyst was the only casino of its kind in Denmark. It boasts magnificent views over the waters of Øresund to Kronborg Castle and the Swedish coast line and is known for its service excellence and sophisticated design.
The casino offers a choice of popular live games (American Roulette, Blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold’em) and a selection of the latest gaming machines.
