If you fancy getting out and about, away from your computer screens and enjoying a real casino experience – then why not make a fun holiday out of it! Yes, we know that there are some amazing online casino experiences to be had – but sometimes, nothing beats the real deal. Here are the best destinations for the ultimate, fun casino holiday!
Las Vegas, USA
This had to be number one on the list right! It’s Vegas baby. This is the most famous casino resort in the world – also known as Sin City – and is often seen as one of the very best. This is the gaming capital of the world and not only does it offer casinos, but it is home to incredible live entertainment performances by some of the biggest artists in the world. It has top-rated bars and clubs and incredible locations easy to reach by public transport.
However, this is about the casinos – and they come in thick and fast right here, with 75 all within a short distance of each other. The hotels are huge and opulent – with 15 of the biggest in the world. This is a must-visit.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Another destination that springs to mind when you think about casinos is Monte Carlo, which is described by some as the ‘Vegas of Europe’. It has been featured in many films, and numerous television programs – it is a staple for the James Bond film crew, who have shot there three times! As well as regal casinos, this is where the billionaires come for a getaway. It has stunning beaches – and if you go at the right time, you can enjoy the thrills of F1.
This location is pretty new to the casino world. However, it boasts world-class resorts such as World Casino Sentosa and Marina Bay, that give you incredible gambling, top-end stores, fantastic entertainment and 5-star cuisine. It didn’t take long for it to earn a reputation as one of the top destinations for a casino holiday.
New Orleans, USA
New Orleans, with its stunning southern setting and its beautiful riverboat casinos, makes it a perfect place to test out your casino skills. It doesn’t quite match Vegas in terms of the number of casinos, but it has a unique culture and history, packed with bars and entertainment that makes it a place you will want to put on your travel list. You could even plan your holiday to coincide with the Mardi Gras festival, for a really life-changing experience!
Sun City, South Africa
The South African resort of Sun City offers a wonderful collection of beautiful and exotic casinos, set in stunning grounds. Not only can you try your luck on games such as roulette and blackjack, but you can also experience the incredible nightlife, head over to the huge waterpark or even play a round of golf. Moreover, it is right next to the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, so when you fancy a break from the slots, why not enjoy a safari tour and see all the incredible wildlife there, such as lions, leopards and elephants.
This one is one of the most remote of all the destinations on the list, but it is here for a very good reason. Macau, off the south coast of China, close to Hong Kong, has plenty to offer. As it was a former Portuguese colony, it offers some stunning European architecture making it a real melting pot of clashing cultures. Because gambling is illegal in neighboring China, this is one of the most popular gambling destinations in Asia for casino lovers. There are all types of casinos here – including the Venetian, Macau, which is the biggest casino in the world with more than 7,000 slots. When you take some time out, you can check out tourist attractions such as the Macau Tower, which has the tallest bungee jump in the world.
If you are a lover of casinos, then each one of these is a must-go location, with excellent gambling experiences, amazing cultural attractions and a whole life experience – get packing!
