A guide to Land-Based Casinos.
Las Vegas, Nevada in the U.S. is a hot spot for gambling. With casinos like Caesar’s Palace, The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, Stratosphere Casino, the famous Luxor, the Venetian, Treasure Island, Circus Circus, and many more on and off the strip, people around the world flock to this casino gambling paradise to win serious cash, see great shows, and have a great time.
Atlantic City in New Jersey is another popular casino gambling destination in the U.S. It is also home to a Caesar’s and Golden Nugget, along with the Taj Mahal Casino, Bally’s, Borgata, and Harrah’s. States like West Virginia, Ohio, and Indiana have both land-based and riverboat casinos.
The U.S. has a very exciting casino gambling scene, but there are many more casinos in the world.
There are land-based casinos in more places than many people know.
Casino Lisboa, for instance, is located in Lisbon, Portugal. At a sprawling 165,000 square feet, it has 1,000 machines on its gaming floor, multiple bars, and thousands of people can stay in its hotel.
Sands Macao in Macao, China is nearly 230,000 square feet with 750 gaming machines and 1,000 table games. There is also an MGM Grand, City of Dreams Resort, the Ponte 16 Resort, and the Venetian in Macao.
Klerksdorp, South Africa gets in on the scene with the fifth largest casino in the world, the Tusk Rio Casino Resort. It comes in at nearly 270,000 square feet of fun.
It is possible to find many casinos on the six major continents. As casino gambling is becoming even more mainstream than ever, there is no doubt that more will pop up.
Full-Fledged Entertainment Venues
What makes land-based casinos so special is that they are entertainment venues that tend to offer more than a place to sleep and a place to gamble. Many have award-winning restaurants, shows, drawings for large prizes like cars, multiple bars, live bloodhound racing, or live gambling on horse races and other events.
These casinos are destinations where people can travel from far and wide to enjoy everything that they have to offer for an entire day or even a few days. That is why the hotels provide swimming pools, fitness rooms, and even massage therapy services after a long night of sitting at the slots.
Although online gambling is becoming more realistic, especially with the live casino option where players can play against a live dealer, the land-based casino is an experience that every gambler needs to have at least once.
