Smack bang in the heart of Fourways - almost where the former set of stop streets originally stood before development ushered in a major set of roads and lights that admittedly make navigating Fourways far easier, but do away with the former charm of what used to be ‘Fourways-out-in-the-sticks’ - is Montecasino, as it is known by locals.
From the road, Montecasino is a typical Italian town - what could easily be mistaken for a quaint Tuscan or Umbrian hilltop village - right in the middle of modern Johannesburg’s northern suburbs. It is marketed as one of Gauteng’s premier entertainment destinations, as indeed it is. Inside the peaceful village is a R1.4 billion gaming, retail and leisure complex that includes a casino area that has more than 1700 slot machines and 70 gaming tables, the 5-star Palazzo MonteCasino Hotel, conferencing facilities, a wide-range of themed restaurants, shops and the Pieter Toerien Theatre.
What makes Montecasino even more attractive is its accessibility to just about anywhere. The complex is only 30 minutes away from OR Tambo airport, it is close to numerous other shopping malls, just about all the major highways are accessible from here, and Sandton CBD is only moments away.
