“The house always wins” is one of the oldest sayings in Las Vegas. The owners of a multimillion-dollar piece of land in Florida’s Reunion Resort & Golf Club community are hoping to make a big profit by selling their private residence which has the unique feature of having its own casino.
World Mansion, a website offering luxury real estate listings, reported this week on the arrival of casino property in Florida. The home at 1125 Grand Traverse Parkway in Reunion, Florida features over 11,000 square feet of indoor living space, with 11 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
Built in 2016, the house was built and designed as a short term rental. Reunion is less than 10 miles from Walt Disney World, Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.
The house has several atypical attractions, but none more than its casino. The gaming space includes slot machines and an electronic table game that seats eight.
The real estate listing indicates that the casino offers the latest slot cabinets and electronic table games that will keep customers entertained throughout their stay. The electronic table game is roulette, while slot machine titles include Buffalo Max, Superlock Jackpot, Jungle Wild King, and Ultimate Fire Link.
Interested in living in a house with its own casino? The home’s asking price is just under $6 million at $5.95 million.
Private casino game
No federal law prevents citizens from purchasing slot machine cabinets or table games for private use. Of course, the machines are legally allowed to be played for entertainment purposes only – not for commercial purposes and/or with real money.
The Florida residence with a casino features an eight-player electronic roulette table made by China-based Hiwill Electronics Equipment. Hiwill also manufactured the in-house slot machines.
Many states place conditions on the types of slot machines that are legal for private possession. In Florida, only slot machines that are at least 20 years old are meant to be legally purchased and owned.
Earlier this year, Casino.org reported on another Florida property for sale that was rumored to have once included a casino. A waterfront mansion in North Miami Beach that belonged to Chicago mobster Al Capone during Prohibition in the 1920s presented an underground casino.
Originally listed for $13.9 million, 334 Atlantic Avenue in the Atlantic Isle community of North Miami Beach remains on the market. The asking price is currently $11.99 million.
Described as a “luxurious new villa with pool, hot tub and games,” the Florida Casino’s Airbnb listing shows prices ranging from $700 to $1,124 a night. With cleaning and service charges, a week’s rental for the house comes to about $9,400 before taxes.
The property has only one review on Airbnb, with the guest reporting that “the house was as described – spotless and in a great location”. The house has a perfect 5 star rating on Vrbo based on just two reviews.
