The List Of Top 10 Worldwide Casinos For Experienced Gamblers.
When you think of casinos, you think of Las Vegas right? Despite being the gambling capital of the
world, Vegas isn't the only place you'll find first class gambling facilities.
Old hands like Monaco, and emerging casinos from countries like South Africa, China (Macao) and the
Bahamas can also offer fantastic entertainment, whatever Littlewoods Online Casino has complied a list of the
best casinos around the world that aren't in Las Vegas, USA.
So where ever you find yourself this year, you'll never be far away from some great action. If you
need some immediate action, why not play online casino games
right away? Here's the top 10 list:
Sun City - South Africa
Located just outside of Johannesburg, Sun City looks and
feels like a tropical oasis you might find on Safari.
You'll find everything you need to keep you and the
As well as a vast casino, Sun City also offers
4 hotels, a wave pool, golf and wildlife tours -
all within its own grounds. You can leave the kids
to stroke the tigers, because you've come all this
way to gamble right?
With pushing 1000 slot machines and nearly 40
game tables, you'll have plenty to take in. The
staff are friendly yet professional and whether you
are a seasoned pro, or a casino virgin, you'll be
made to feel right at home. But, remember, you're
here to gamble, right? In that case, Sun City is
great for everyone. If you need to brush up on your
skills, why not take a lesson at Sun City's gambling
Casino Salzburg - Austria
Las Vegas might do it shiner, but European casinos are
often a different level of grand. Take Casino
Salzburg - set in a glorious castle - Schloss Klessheim.
Salzburg is of course, Mozart's birthplace, and
gambling in these glorious surroundings is sure to
be music to your ears. The combination of fine
baroque art and a modern casino give the Salzburg a
truly unique feel.
Best to get that tailored suit ready. While not
the biggest casino in Europe, it's certainly the
most elegant. Inside you'll find 18 gaming tables
and 110 slot machines, so there's plenty of action
to be had. Just don't get put off by your opulent
Hotel Algarve Casino - Portugal
If you're a golf lover as well as a keen gambler, then
the Hotel Algarve Casino should be a stop-off on
your worldwide casino tour.
The Algarve casino is big on entertainment, so in
between the Slot Machines, Portuguese Dice, Black
Jack, Roulette and Poker you'll find evening
concerts, international shows and lots more.
Golf fanatics are also well served, as the
Algarve is also home to some of Europe's finest
courses. If you need to ease the pressure and think
about your gambling strategy, why not take in a few
holes before you hit the tables again.
Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu - Quebec, Canada
A multi-award winning casino, the majestic Le Manoir
Richelieu is worlds away from the neon glare of
Inside you'll find exemplary service, with staff
really making you feel like you are a Hollywood
A-lister of Royal. Like the Salzburg, Le Manoir
Richelieu will dazzle you with its setting and
Half the battle with casino resorts such as these
is keeping your mind on the first-rate gambling!
Everything is done at a slower, more relaxed pace
than usual, which is useful for keeping your wits
about you and not getting carried away (something
that happens all too often when you are subject to
the sights and sounds of the Strip.).
Hotel de Paris - Monaco, France
As one of the most expensive regions in the world,
Monaco is the king of the traditional grand casino.
Words such as grand, ornate and magnificent
accurately describe the Hotel de Paris, and like
everything else in the French Riviera, it's dripping
There's a definite James Bond feel to the casino
and you'll need nerves of steel and a sturdy game
face to take anything home. The fact that you are
actually in the Hotel de Paris must mean that lady
luck has smiled upon you at some point in your life,
so you're probably the sort of person who can
'afford' to have a bit of bad luck!
Casino de Monte Carlo - Monaco, France
If you thought the Hotel de Paris is grand, Casino de
Monte Carlo is positively Royalty.
Popular opinion has this down as the most
decadent casino in the world, so make sure you look
the part, you give the valet the keys to your
Lamborghini, and your supermodel wife looks stunning
in that designer dress.
A strict dress code is adhered to in the private
gambling rooms, so if you aren't wearing a dinner
jacket and tie, you won't get in. You'll be rubbing
shoulders with the most wealthy high rollers in the
world, so nerves of steel and a very healthy (think
oil baron!) bank balance are de rigour. Expect
world-class gambling and some serious champagne quaffing!
Atlantis Resort - Nassau, Bahamas
Get your wallets ready, as the Atlantis Resort in Nassau
features one of the most expensive suites in the
world. The Bridge Suite comes in at an eye-watering thousands a night!
You'll also find the largest casino in the
Caribbean, covering every game you could imagine...
and some you probably can't! Besides the sheer
size of this casino, the main reason to visit is the
spectacular panoramic views of the ocean. If you are
used to casinos with no windows then
the Atlantis Resort is truly a unique experience.
Maestral Resort & Casino - Montenegro
Featuring 120 slot machines and nearly 20 gaming tables, the
Maestral is at the heart of Eastern European gambling.
All the slots offer some great progressive
jackpots and big prizes, so you could be shouting
from the rooftops after a minimal outlay. All the
Las Vegas favourites are covered, including Roulette,
Blackjack, and Texas Hold'em Poker. For the more
experienced gambler, there's also the casino Prive,
an intimate, high limit area with a variety of gaming tables.
Away from the casino you'll find a good selection
of entertainment, including shows, dances and comedy
acts. The Maestral has a bit of everything.
Casino di Venezia - Venice
If you are into gambling history, the Casino di Venezia
is the place for you. The oldest gambling house in
the world, Casino di Venezia dates all the way back to 1638.
Classic casino games set in a sumptuous
environment means you'll really get into the swing
of things. Casino di Venezia offers all the history
and entertainment you'd expect, without the need for
a huge bank balance like the Monaco casinos. It's
not everyday you'll get to play in a casino on water!
Dome Casino - Cyprus
Holidaying in Cyprus but want a bit of gambling entertainment
to break up the sun, sea and sand? Dome Casino is
one of the largest casinos in Cyprus, located,
unsurprisingly, in the Dome Hotel - one of the
island's most exclusive hotels.
With nearly 25 years of experience behind them,
the casino offers a wealth of gaming opportunity,
including 100 slot machines and 12 tables covering
poker, roulette and blackjack. At over 700 square
metres, the Dome is not even as big as some Vegas
poker rooms, but its unique selling point - a live
betting service on UK dog and horse racing - is
something you'll not find on the strip!
That's all from our whistle-stop of the best worldwide casinos. Get those gambling holidays
booked and enjoy. In the meantime, why not brush up on your skills and take in some
great online casino games, including fast-paced roulette
gambling, here at Littlewoods Casino. They've got some great cash prizes on offer, so whether online
blackjack, roulette, slots or video poker floats your boat,
they can give you the best online gaming experience around.
