    Emperors Palace (Johannesburg) in Kempton Park
    "The Vegas of Africa" they say and driving into this opulent destination you can see why. Theme is Roman Empire meets typical Joburg buzz and there are many pleasures beyond the casino to appeal to most. Its close proximity to OR Tambo International Airport also provides those with really long layovers with something a bit more exciting to do with their time.

    I have visited Emperors Palace three times in the past two months and am so impressed at how well they continue to maintain the place. I believe the sale by Sun International has fallen through?? Maybe someone can enlighten us further?? All I can say is its a pleasure to meet my friends here for breakfast, to gamble a little and to browse around the premises. They are so clean everywhere and the staff are fantastic!!

    Emperors Palace is the best casino and entertainment resort in Johannesburg. The location is convenient to those living in the East Rand and also close to the O.R Tambo airport. Those visiting from different cities and countries will have a lovely experience at the different hotels that Emperors Palace provides which are available at reasonable prices. The entertainment facilities are great,catering for different age groups including cinemas, kids play centers, cafe-bars, video arcades and a number of restaurants with different cuisines, There is ample parking space available however may be limited during very busy times. There is always a positive vibe when visiting which includes live shows regularly at the entertainment areas as well as the casino. In the casino there's a number of bars available which caters for smoking and non-smoking customers. The casino facilities also caters for different customers.

    The biggest problem of this casino is the entrance. It could take up to 30 minutes to enter. Parking is also a problem. The rest is very good.

    For the first time in almost a year I went to visit Emperors Palace for the day with friends, and had an amazing time!! I believe the takeover by Sun International will only be effective March 2016 (almost a year since we heard about it) and I still believe it will become far more popular once this has happened. Sun International points will be effective here then and people can use their points for accommodation etc. so hopefully the hotel will fill up more. At the moment there is a big Craft Market on at Emperors, entrance is R10-00 and there is a lovely selection of Christmas gifts to be purchased (leather handbags, Thai scarves, jewellery, fudge, biltong etc.) The facilities at Emperors is great with a super selection of restaurants, shops etc. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean with staff on hand all the time to ensure it stays that way. Each entrance has security scanners which most definitely work - I got stopped at each entrance!! Although I only won a little, it was far better than losing but it was the best being able to spend time with friends!!

    I'm not really a gambler, don't like the risk, but went with my other half. Must say that I really enjoyed it. Loved that I could sit next to him while he did his thing, got served drinks, checked on and walked out with a little bit of extra cash! :) Thank you Emperors!

    I heard that this casino has been taken over by Sun International - I believe it will become far more popular than it is because Sun International are extremely professional in the entertainment and gaming industry. Although the position of Emperors Palace does not appeal to me (I would have to be going to O R Tambo to go there) I do think the whole structure is extremely attractive, they cater very well for children and they have a good variety of restaurants and dhops. Good luck Sun International!!

    Similar to Monte, what makes this a true destination is the range of entertainment options. Weekends are busy and you will sometimes battle to find parking. This is one of the largest casinos in SA.

    Went there for the first time last month, not bad at all kinda reminds me of MonteCasino, which is not a bad thing. The casino area is huge, a nice cool atmosphere at the place and felt secure. Really love the competitions and promotions they have, ended up participating in bingo roulette, was really fun!

    When it comes to choosing cools stuff to do at Emperors, the world's your oyster!! A bit of gambling, nice places to eat, or somewhere to go if you live in Pretoria, the East Rand or Joburg - somewhere a little different to get away from the hub bub of everyday life. Such a nice venue!
