Top Most Casino In The World
Atlantis Casino & Resort – Paradise Island, Bahamas
To be fair, our smallest casino on the list is still impressive by typical standards at 50,000 sq. ft. It’s also the largest casino in the Caribbean. However, the casino is just one of many impressive features of the famous Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
Gold Coast Hotel and Casino – Las Vegas, NV USA
The Gold Coast Hotel and Casino features 87,000 sq. ft. of gaming area, exactly one mile west of the Las Vegas Strip, where it caters more to locals than tourists. Fun fact: The Gold Coast Hotel and Casino was featured in the 1996 film “Mars Attacks!” “Ack Ack!”
Resorts Casino Hotel – Atlantic City, NJ USA
Resorts Casino Hotel is, as the name implies, a resort consisting of a 100,000 sq. ft. casino and a hotel in Atlantic City, NJ. We’ll give them a pass on the silly name because it’s old school. This was the first legal casino in the US outside of Nevada when it opened in 1978.
Wynn – Las Vegas, NV USA
While “Resorts” below is no slouch, it’s safe to say that the Wynn Las Vegas is the first true, modern, mega-casino on our list. Built in 2005, directly on the strip in Paradise, NV, the Wynn features 111,000 sq. ft. of gaming space, is named one of the Top Hotels in the World by Condé Nast Traveler, and features its own Ferrari-Maserati dealership.
Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino – Las Vegas, NV USA
Though originally considered another “local’s” casino located near (but not on) the Vegas Strip, Rio nonetheless developed a major tourist reputation. It’s not hard to see why when it includes 120,000 sq. ft. of gaming area, a wine cellar with over 50,000 bottles to choose from, and the venue that hosts the world series of poker every year.
Curious about where the largest casinos in the world are? This might shock you, but Las Vegas is not the gambling capital of the world. In fact, its largest casino isn’t even in the top 10. Fortunately, we have Oklahoma and Connecticut to save us; otherwise, the United States wouldn’t even be on the top 10. It just goes to show that much like many other (sometimes awesome, sometimes tragic) potential addictions, the thrill of gambling is universal worldwide…and so are the people who are happy to take your money in order to give you that thrill. With that in mind, please visit these amazing places as…responsibly…as possible. Here are 25 Largest Casinos In The World.
The Venetian – Las Vegas, NV USA
The Venetian Resort Complex represents the second largest hotel in the world, and the largest resort on the Las Vegas Strip. The casino makes up 120,000 sq. ft. of gaming space and is the current home of Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler’s solo show. In between blackjack tables and slot machines, patrons can see the on-site Guggenheim Hermitage Museum housing that has literally priceless artifacts from around the world.
Mandalay Bay – Las Vegas, NV USA
If you watch Ultimate Fighting, you recognize Mandalay Bay on the Vegas Strip, which conveniently allows you to view high-profile events such as UFC, Boxing, and even the Miss Universe Pageant live while you’ve bet on them. With 135,000 sq. ft. of gaming space there’s plenty of other ways to spend your money. However, many guests take a break from their gaming to visit the separated, European-style pool called Moorea.
Caesars – Atlantic City, NJ USA
Atlantic City’s second casino ever, Caesars opened in 1979 and has expanded and renovated several times since to become the largest casino in Atlantic City. It now features 145,000 sq. ft. of gaming area along with an 1100-seat theater venue that has hosted legendary acts such as Frank Sinatra, Diana Ross, Mary J. Blige, and Celine Dion.
Aria – Las Vegas, NV USA
After opening in 2009 on the Las Vegas Strip, Aria was praised by Popular Mechanics as possibly the most technologically advanced hotel ever built. The smart rooms automatically adjust curtains, turn off lights, and regulate electronics when guests are away to minimize wasted energy. With 150,000 sq. ft. of gaming area and all that technology, it makes a lot of sense that Aria was the featured casino in the 2013 film Now You See Me.
The Bellagio – Las Vegas, NV USA
Partially thanks to being featured in the remake of Ocean’s 11, Bellagio is what most people imagine when you mention the Las Vegas Strip. It combines class and beauty with lots of energy. When it opened in 1998, it was the most expensive hotel ever built. In addition to the iconic water show, there is 155,000 sq. ft. of gaming area with a high-stakes poker room preferred by poker greats in which pots frequently exceed a million dollars.
