What You Need To Know:
Altira's multi-level casino caters to the highest of the high rollers. Despite Altira's size, its casino is smaller by comparison to some of the other resorts in Macau. But small, in this case, does not mean they have skimped on decadence. Altira's features 220 gaming tables and 500 slot machines in their public areas and a number of high limit VIP gaming salons. It's a gorgeous sight to behold... a must visit.
Altira (formerly Crown Macau) is located on the northern part of Taipa Island just minutes from Downtown Macau and the Cotai Strip. It is very close to the Macau-Taipa Bridge and is within walking distance from Casino Taipa and Greek Mythology Casino.
