$6 million Florida house boasts casino-like game room

At Florida’s Reunion Resort and Golf Club, there is one house for sale that could be the dream of gambling aficionados.

Mansion with a casino room just a short drive from Disney World is for sale

The multimillion-dollar private residence at 1125 Grand Traverse Parkway in Reunion sits on a golf course and encompasses 11,000 square feet. It features 11 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and a spectacular casino-style game room.

The house was built in 2016 with the goal of it being a short-term rental for people visiting the area. Reunion is less than 20 miles from Walt Disney World, Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.

The real draw here, though, is the casino room. If gambling in your gaming room is your dream, this is the perfect house. The price: $5.95 million.

There are seven popular Florida casinos. The Seminole Tribe of Florida runs six. The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians runs one in Miami. Online casinos are not permitted in the state.

You can still rent the house starting at $700 a night

The gaming space features multiple slot machines as well as an electronic gaming table that seats eight players. The electronic table game is roulette, while the slot machines are various games, including Buffalo Max, Superlock Jackpot, Jungle Wild King and Ultimate Fire Link.

For now, it is still being used as a rental through Airbnb. Its listing describes the space as a “luxurious new villa with a pool, hot tub and games.” A one-night stay will set you back between $700 and $1,100. For a weekly stay, including cleaning and service fees, the rental price is right around $9,500 before taxes.

If reviews are your way of confirming the decision to rent a house, there is only one. It is a glowing review that states: “The house was just as described immaculate and in a great location.”

Is it legal to have a casino in your home?

One might wonder about the legal grounds of having a casino in a home. It is legal to have slot machines or table games for private use. Slot machines are legal if they are played only for entertainment purposes, not to make money or for commercial use. In the state of Florida, the machines must also be at least 20 years old to be purchased privately and possessed.

There are few homes to compare to this one. In North Miami Beach’s Atlantic Isle community, there is a home on the market that’s just a hair under $12 million. It is a waterfront mansion owned by Chicago mobster Al Capone during Prohibition. It’s rumored to have an underground casino.
