The biggest and nicest Casino in Switzerland?

Someone I know said she visited Lugano and she liked the Casino there. I did a quick search and I've seen some pics of other Casinos in Switzerland but she is insisting on Lugano. I've never been to a Casino in my life. So, just curious, which one is the biggest and nicest Casino?

The biggest and nicest casino in the Suisse Romande is just a ferry ride away in Evian, France.

I've never been to a Casino but the one in Montreux is probably the most famous. It looks very impressive from the outside

Re: The biggest and nicest Casino in Switzerland?

Here is a big one in Zürich. It is quite well known, but casual visitors are not welcome:

It doesn't even look nice from the outside. Maybe it is simple on the outside but very nice inside?

That would be two separate questions with two separate answers, then. In my experience, big casinos are never 'nice'.

Montreux's is biggish and niceish but unfortunately, the casinos of the James Bond ilk -- all black ties and diamond-strewn women -- are pretty much nowhere to be found, except in the high roller rooms. But to get to them, one has to walk past the hoi polloi.

I went to this one once, and it was soooo sad and depressing. The place stank of stale cigarette smoke, and everyone looked like they were losing and were desperate to win. I don't even recall seeing any cleavage.

Re: The biggest and nicest Casino in Switzerland?

The nicest casino full of Swiss is in Monte Carlo (but it's still not a black-ties-and-women-strewn-with-diamonds kinda place).

Not sure if it's the nicest or biggest, but it's close by:

Re: The biggest and nicest Casino in Switzerland?

There's one in the Mövenpick hotel in Geneva. It is linked to our office building so I pass by every morning/evening when I park my car.

Difficult to resist temptation sometimes
