To describe the Bellagio as magnificent is an understatement with the five Diamond Bellagio overlooking the Mediterranean-blue lake where the Fountains of Bellagio performs its magnificent ballet in colour and sound. International divers, synchronized swimmers and acrobats perform above, on and in the water in this outstanding production.
The Bellagio is owned and operated by MGM Resorts International and it opened its doors in October 1998. Its signature attractions include the Bank Nightclub, Fiori di Como, The Fountains of Bellagio, Bellagio Conservatory, Gallery of Fine Art and the Casino. There are fourteen poolside, in-room and private dining room options that include the world’s tallest chocolate fountain, Bellagio Patisserie and top Forbes Five Star restaurants with the world best restaurateurs and finest chefs.
The casino offers a total gaming space of 116,000 square feet. The Bellagio is famed for its poker room due to its high poker limits where stakes can go as high as $8 000 and where the pot can reportedly often exceed $1 million. It also partners with the World Poker Tour to host tournaments. The large casino has 143 table games and 2, 409 coin-operated casino slot machines.
