Casino Du Liban

The Casino du Liban is a casino that is located in Lebanon in Jounieh and lies about 22km from Beirut. It spans across more than 30,000 square meters of land and boasts about 400 slot machines and more than 50 game tables for gambling enthusiasts and tourists alike. This includes a well equipped theater, a showroom, several restaurants and a banquet hall. The casino first opened its doors to the public back in 1959 but it was closed 30 years later and re-opened again in 1996 after massive renovations that cost about $50 million. The casino has a colorful history riddled with obstacles that the owners overcame remarkably well. Back during the sixties and the fifties, it flourished during the economic boom from tourists and due to the fact that around that time, Lebanon became one of the best spots for vacationers from across the globe.

It also hosted some activities that were banned in neighboring countries gambling being the main one that attracted people in droves to the casino. In the 1950s, a decree was passed legalizing gambling, after which construction of the casino commenced on a rocky hill that overlooked the Mediterranean Sea. The land was also turned into a conifer forest making it more beautiful.
