After the end of construction Baden-Baden was awarded with the summer capital of Europe title and still it has been saving this status for many years.

Benazet made a shrewd move to make the establishment immediately popular. He didn’t construct new buildings, but simply set up roulette tables in the places where the representatives of urban elite rested. Therefore, they started to bet more often in their spare time.
