Are you one of the people who have not yet entered the brick and mortar casino? Are you messing with the idea of satisfying your desires by visiting one of the casinos in your area? Do you flirt with temptation, but are you discouraged by fears of the unknown?

In the following article, we will try to give you more specific advice on one of the essential concerns when visiting a live casino. Yes, we are talking about the Dress code, i.e. the question “how to dress to the casino”?

Dress code in Live Casinos – How to Dress Appropriately?

There are specific unwritten rules for casino visitors around the world regarding the Dress code. While in movies all players are usually dressed in a suit or at least have a blazer, the reality is, fortunately (or unfortunately if you want) somewhere else.

T-shirts and jeans are already regular clothes in any small casino, and you do not have to be ashamed to go dressed as you go to the bar or cinema.

We have a good tip for you. If you do not know, ask. Visit the website of the casino. Most of these establishments point out if they implement any dress-related rules. You can also call there or write an e-mail if there is no information directly on the website.

Our general advice: (if not otherwise recommended)

In our opinion, Casual or Business Causal and enough for most of the casinos.

For men:

  • Blazer or jacket
  • Shirt or plain T-shirt
  • Long pants
  • Closed shoes

For women

  • Any pants, jeans, can be shortened
  • Skirt in any length and cut
  • Dress (fits max length to mid-calf)
  • Sweaters, cardigans, waistcoats, blazers, jackets
  • Shirts, even oversize, blouses and ordinary shirts
  • Sneakers, ballerinas, sandals, heels

History of Casino Dress Code

When the “casino” was introduced in the second half of the 20th century, most of them were not gambling lairs, but a very prestigious social enterprise for people from an upper class. In today’s words, we can say that visiting the casino was the black-tie event.

This also makes sense from the casino’s point of view: gambler with empty pocket = casino with the empty cash register. Subsequently, casinos in the past applied a very strict dress code and only allowed to play to rich people. Even today, you will find prestigious casinos using a strict dress code, but in most modern places you can get to it without having to worry about what to wear. Anyway, you do not get any casino bonus when you wear blazer or jacket, so just don’t wear socks in sandals, and you should be okay.
