One of the great things about gambling is that you can use it as an excuse to travel the world and experience the casinos across every corner of it. Some of the best casinos in the world are also located in the cities that everyone needs to put on their bucket list and visit, at least once.
Our list will cover a few of those cities but it’s not trying to be a complete list by no means. There are many other cities that are great for gambling and tourist destinations.
Any list of cities famous for gambling should start with Las Vegas,one of the gambling capitals of the world. There’s a reason why this city has become synonymous with gambling and every other kind of entertainment. Las Vegas has any game and any machine you can imagine.
Once you’re not in a casino, there’s also plenty to do and to occupy your time. Vegas is filled with any kind of show, concert, restaurant, or play you can imagine and you’ll miss out if you focus on gambling alone and don’t pay attention to other venues.
Macau is often called the Las Vegas of Asia and there’s a reason why that is the case. The city has to offer pretty much anything Las Vegas does and the games are culturally suited to both Asian and Western players since both are now visiting Macau and enjoying the services it has to offer.
Macau is a part of China but it has its own laws. This means that it’s the only part of China where gambling is allowed. It gives it a unique place in the Asian gambling landscape since it has become a hub for it.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Few European destinations are as perfect for visitors and gamblers as Monte Carlo in Monaco. It’s a paradise reserved for the richest of tourists and that’s reflected in how high-end the casinos are and how expensive the shopping can be once you’re there.
Once you’re in Monaco most tourists take the chance to make a quick ride to France since it’s nearby and it’s what most tourists do once they get bored of the high-end resorts and shops that you can find in Monte Carlo itself.
Marina Bay, Singapore
The south Asian market has been on the rise for years now and there are many technical and financial reasons why this is the case. There are more players with disposable income that can use the services of casinos in this part of the world and Singapore is going through an economic boom, part of which is about gambling.
Marina Bay is a marvel of architecture and it’s now a huge city probably bigger and more sprawling than Las Vegas. Within it, you can find any kind of entertainment you want when you’re taking a break from playing.
London, United Kingdom
London isn’t really the first place that comes to mind when it comes to gambling, but it is one of the best places to gamble in Europe. There are many other tourist and cultural reasons to visit London and chances are you’ll spend your time between the tourist destinations and sites and the casinos once you’re there.
There are over 20 casinos in the city, but the local gambling laws are a bit complicated when it comes to how you can withdraw the funds and how you’re going to get taxed. That’s why you need to get familiar with them before playing for any larger amount.
The Bahamas are on everyone’s list as a destination to visit at least once. That’s mostly because of its beautiful beaches and resorts that are tailor-made for a perfect and relaxing vacation. It’s also a great destination if you enjoy extreme and water sports.
What’s often overlooked, however, are the casinos you can visit and play in while you’re in Nassau. It’s most well known for its poker tournaments which are among the best in the world and they usually attract the best of the poker players out there. The casinos also offer all the other gambling games you may expect.
San Jose, Costa Rica
San Jose is the capital of Costa Rica and it’s one of the best gambling destinations in the world. It’s known as the most affordable option if you want to experience all that a high-end gambling resort has and don’t want to break the bank as you would in Monaco or some of the other destinations on our list.
When it comes to the service and the options provided by the hotels and resorts, you’ll get all of the accommodations and all of the games and tournaments you would in other gambling destinations.
A Few Tips
There are a few important tips to have in mind when visiting any of these destinations. First of all, remember that the casinos are just a part of the offer out there, and make sure you visit and experience the city you’re in when you’re not in the casino.
Secondly, all the rules for gambling responsibly apply even when you’re abroad. This means you should investigate and research the games that you plan to play and you need to find a mark at which you’ll cut your losses and stop when you’re on a bad streak. These happen and having a plan can help not get too deep into a loss.
