It is home to some of the world’s largest hotels (15 of the largest 25), largest casinos and largest resorts.

2. Macau, China – Macau, like Hong Kong, is a special administrative region in China. It is known throughout the world as the “Monte Carlo of the Orient” and for a good reason – its 33 casinos are responsible for up to 50% of its entire economy. Most of the casinos are located on the Macau Peninsula and the rest are on Taipa Island. 7 of the casinos in Macau are within the 20 largest casinos in the world: the Venetian Macao, City of Dreams Resort, Casino Ponte 16, MGM Grand Macao, Sands Macao and Starworld Hotel & Casino

3. Atlantic City, New Jersey – If you live on the East Coast, or just visiting there, and Las Vegas is too far for you, then Atlantic City is your best choice. The resort city is well known for its casinos, boardwalk and beach, and was even the inspiration for Monopoly board game. The glamour days of the city are behind it, but you can still have a great time in the 8 or so casinos it has to offer, like Caesars Atlantic City, Borgata, Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino and more

The small country is home to Monte Carlo – the most famous and successful gaming destination in Europe, attracting people from all across the continent.

7. Singapore – I mentioned Singapore before as one of the island countries you should visit, and mentioned in other posts the country’s aquarium, zoo, botanical gardens, its Ferris Wheel (world’s largest), urban park, and of course – the magnificent skyline. And since the government legalized gaming in 2005, there’s now another reason to visit the country: Two resorts with large casinos were opened: Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands

10. Online Casinos – If you want the thrill of a poker game but can’t travel to any of the above destinations, you can have some fun in online casinos (here’s a place where you can start). It won’t offer you the shows of Las Vegas, the views of Monte Carlo or the experience of Macau, but the thrill is definitely there. And hey, maybe you’ll even win enough to pay for your next holiday in Vegas!
