It’s a given that you must visit a casino while in Las Vegas. If you are a gambler (we always fancy a game of roulette) then you’ll have no problem passing the evening. We prefer the Las Vegas casinos to those in Macau, largely in part because participants in the casinos get free drinks and alcohol. If you gamble responsibly, you won’t spend that much money on an entire evening of entertainment.
Here are some of the most extravagant casinos in Vegas.
The Paris boasts a half size repica of the Eiffel Tower and is completely french themed. It also features an indoor Parisian street with live entertainment stages where you can walk amongst the shop and feel like you’ve truly been transported to one of the worlds most romantic cities.
The Bellagio, you know the one in Oceans 11 with George Clooney and Brad Pitt, is definitely worth a visit. Before you even step inside be sure to admire the famed water show featured in the film.
The Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will transport you to the canals and waterways of Venice, Italy. There are even working gondolas that will take you up and down the canals of the casino.
For those who live in the Western Hemisphere, Las Vegas is the obvious choice for extravagant gambling opportunities. Can’t make the trip? You can save your money on a plane ticket with Betway online casino . Alternatively, if you are looking for something more exotic in a foreign country, Macau is right up your ally.
For many people, the name Macau is synonymous with one thing only: gambling. Referred to as the Las Vegas of the East, Macau has actually overtaken its American counterpart in terms of revenue and size. Prosperous Chinese mainlanders cross the border via bus; the wealthy from Hong Kong utilize the speedy ferries (and even helicopters!) to arrive at its shores. And with the biggest and best names like the Venetian, Wynn, and MGM, it’s no wonder why dollar signs dominate visitor’s minds.
Here are our favorites for most extravagant casinos in Macau.
The Grand Lisboa Casino is hard to miss with it’s unique construction. Not to mention it is the tallest building in Macau coming in at 261 meters. To add to the grandeur, it houses The Star of Stanley Ho a 218.08 carat (43.616 g) diamond that claims to be the largest cushion shaped internally flawless D-color diamond in the world.
Wynn Macau dazzles nightly with its performance lake, shooting fire, water and lights into the sky in a breathtaking display. The show is set to popular Chinese melodies.
Sands Macau is a beautiful all-suite casino hotel. If you stay here, ask for one of the rooms with sweeping views that look out over Fisherman’s Wharf.
The Venetian Macau has all the same style and grace as its counterpart in Las Vegas and in an even larger environment. It currently stands as the largest casino in the world.
