Hi opau,

The correct one is 'over'.

'More than' is a comparative structure and if you compare, you need to compare two or more things. In the sentence you provided, there is not any comparison so 'more than' makes no sense at all.

'More than' -> Comparative structure. For example: I am taller THAN my sister. After 'THAN' we always need a name (Person, object, element ...). E.g: Diamonds are more expensive than silver.

Just remember, just use 'more than' when you are comparing two or more elements.

Hope this helps.

I would use. Over than 18. It sounds way more natural as a native speaker.


You could say, "To enter a casino, you need to be over eighteen years old", or "...you need to be over 18." or "...you need to be eighteen years old or older."
