i visited so many times with shorts and t-shirts. i do not have any issues due to dress code
Ok I found this today while searching for the same question and just wanted to have a look at the MBS Casino. I emailed them and got the following reply:
"Thank you for your enquiry. In our Casino, smart casual wear is required and we would appreciate if patrons are appropriately attired. For all of our guests, beach wear including flip flops, slippers, casual short pants and sleeveless shirts are not allowed. The casual short pants refers to sport shorts, used for running or gym. Bermuda” shorts, or the knee length shorts are acceptable."
I wore regular navy blue chino shorts and brown leather sneakers. No problems whatsoever. Inside the casino... the pits (not the gaming pits). Mostly mainland Chinese who were dressed like going on a dumpster scavenger hunt including open slippers, swim short akin shorts, shoulder free shirts. It was a joke! There is no dress code at this place and I feel like they have it on paper so they have a mechanism to kick really obnoxious people out of grounds of violating one of their entry requirements.
Dress well if you want to be respected.
I was told that there is a "smart casual" dress code (no shorts and flipflops) when I called and checked in advance, but when I walked in there were plenty of people dressed very casually. I would suggest you wear what's comfortable, and as it's air-conditioned you don't need to go too casually.
On their website it does say no shorts etc, but when we went in June, there were people in shorts and tank tops. They are not as strict with foreign visitors as they are with the locals. Don’t forget there is no cash points within the casino itself. You’ll need to go through security to get cash in the foyer and then back through security.
