The casino was a wonderful experience. My husband & I would definitely revisit this location. The machines were very informative providing payout histories of most recent winners. The customer service was Grade A and very expedient to all of our needs. Be sure to have your identification on you, for you will need this upon entering.

The casino is on the site of Freddie Mercury's recording studio so there is an area dedicated to Freddie and Queen which is nice to see. The casino had a decent amount f slots with a variety, also gaming tables. I especially liked that the gaming floor was non smoking - they had 2 glasses to n areas for smokers... More

Visited here mainly to see the Queen Exhibition, however the casino is relatively small and standard to most others I've seen. There is a bar upstairs which is open until 3am. Be aware that Montreux is quite a sleepy relaxed place so if your looking for a late drink this is your best bet.

As far as casinos go it is a little small. Located right off the lake though it has a spectacular location. The most interesting part of the casino though is on the second floor--The Queen Museum and their former recording studio

The party was on 4-5 September exactly to celebrate his birthday together all his fans around the world. Inside of this beautiful buildind with an old and interesting history we had the party....

No dress code. One security guard in a jogging suit serving as doorman.a five star location in breathtaking beauty but inside. ..well....think two stars red velvet off the Vegas strip. Bus tour pensioners coupons in hand queuing for discount buffet and a mah jong room low end ambiance about the whole place. Too bad. I decided to dine elsewhere and... More

Living in Las Vegas makes me spoiled but the casino floor needs to manage the bad odor that greets you at the door. Otherwise the establishment was a nice little Casino on the Lake.

Freddie Mercury adopted Montreux as his home-away-from-home, and even bought the excellent record studio made famous by the Deep Purple song: Smoke on the Water. In the years since Freddie's passing, the casino has created a museum of sorts where you can see loads of Queen paraphenalia, videos, hand-written lyrics, and the actual 24-track Struder analog recording machine made famous...

I went to the casino to see the Queen Experience. If I were a gambler, I think I'd have enjoyed the ambience in the casino. As it is, I just enjoyed spending time remembering Freddie Mercury at the Queen Experience - and buying Queen souvenirs!
