21 Best Casinos To Visit In Your Lifetime
Visiting a casino with a fantastic atmosphere at least once has to be on everyone’s bucket list. Why not try and do this 21 times? After all, there are plenty great establishments around the globe. Whether you love the spin of the roulette wheel, the simplicity of slots or the elegance of Blackjack, there is likely to be something for everyone.
That special feeling is only enhanced at the biggest and best venues in the world. We’ve all seen the style and swagger of Casino Royale, as James Bond plays his hand against an array of villains. That’s just one example. If you go to the right place, your time can be as full of panache as Hollywood made it seem.
Even 21.co.uk fans can enjoy being there in person. Here are 21 of the best casinos in the world that are well worth visiting if you can.
1 - The Venetian Macao

If you ever find yourself in China, Macau is certainly worth checking out. Once there, The Venetian Macao stakes a claim to be the top dog. A five-star hotel-casino, this superb complex really does have it all. With a distinctly Italian theme and faux Renaissance architecture, you’ll fall in love with the place instantly. The gaming ground covers an astonishing 546,000 square feet, with over 3,000 slot machines.
2 - Wynn Macau

Macau is far from just one stunning casino, as the Wynn Macau is more than worth your time too. There are two Michelin-starred restaurants on site, as well as the water fountain centrepiece. Thousands of games are available, with an extra added bonus of the Dragon of Fortune, which is essentially a huge animated dragon that flies 30ft into the air. How cool is that?
3 - Casino Lisboa

Located in Lisbon, Portugal, the Casino Lisboa provides 165,00 square feet of gaming space. The main attraction here is the over 700 slot machines and 22 gaming tables, giving you everything you need. The 4 bars, 3 restaurants and a 600-seat theatre are just a fantastic bonus!
4 - Bellagio
With an eight-acre lake and instantly recognisable fountain, The Bellagio is one of Las Vegas’ greatest attractions. If you can, make sure to book a room, or even one of the lavish two-bedroom villas, giving you an extraordinary view of the strip which of course is lit up in all its glory every evening.
5 - The Borgata
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/The Borgata.png)
Found in Atlantic City, Borgata is popular due to its links with the rich and famous down the years. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are amongst those that are known to have visited this leading Hotel Casino & Spa. Not bad company to be in.
6 - Marina Bay Sands
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Marina Bay Sands.png)
Considering this casino cost a total of $8 billion dollars to build, it should come as no surprise that we’re listing it here as one of the best around. Singapore has never looked so good, with three connecting towers and a roof that plays host to the largest infinity pool on the planet. With over 550 table games and 2,500 slots, the Marina Bay Sands is well worth a visit.
7 - The Casino de Monte-Carlo
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/The Casino de Monte Carlo.png)
We’re back to James Bond here, as the stunning Casino de Monte-Carlo played host to 007 in GoldenEye and Never Say Never Again. The high rollers seem to enjoy going there, and the building was actually opened by royalty in the form of Princess Caroline. If you’re thinking of heading to Monaco specifically to visit, make sure you bring your finest threads.
8 - MGM Grand Las Vegas
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/MGM Grand Las Vegas.png)
Undoubtedly one of the most famous casinos in the world, the MGM Grand takes pride of place in the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas. Opened in 1993, it was once the largest in the world. Though it no longer holds that crown, it still provides an incredible experience, with all of the slots and table games you could ever wish for, plus a plethora of extra entertainment.
9 - Atlantis Casino & Resort
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Atlantis Casino & Resort.png)
Right beside the beach on the beautiful island of the Bahamas, this casino and hotel combination really hits the spot. If you happen to be in the vicinity of The Caribbean, it will be well worth your time to give Atlantis a go. The warm weather can still be taken in too, with the very handy outdoor gaming pavilion.
10 - City of Dreams
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/City of Dreams.png)
We’re heading back to Macau for this entry, and the name ‘City Of Dreams’ gives the place a bit of added pressure to live up to the hype. Thankfully, it certainly does live up to the hype and then some. The 420,000 square feet mean there is plenty of room for 450 gaming tables and over 1,514 gaming machines.
11- Sun City Casino Resort
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Sun City Resort Casino.png)
Only two hours outside of Johannesburg in South Africa, the location of the Sun City Casino Resort has a special feel as soon as you arrive. Take in the incredible sights of a safari during the day and experience in the evening. There is lots of added entertainment too, such as an 18-hole golf course and outdoor water park.
12 - Resorts World Sentosa
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Resorts World Sentosa.png)
Resorts World Sentosa is actually Singapore’s first mega casino resort, having opened in the same year as the Marina Bay Sands. If you like your space you’ll be very happy here, with the gaming area spanning 16,000 square feet. When heading to the area, just make sure you’re not wearing shorts, a hat, sunglasses or sandals. Bad news if you’re a Mexican wrestler too, as masks are also on the banned list.
13 - The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/The Cosmopolitan.png)
The Las Vegas strip never looked so good! With a focus on stunning looks and eye-catching imagery, every inch of The Cosmopolitan has been carefully designed by the Rockwell Group. Stay in luxury while you’re not in the casino, as the hotel area provides each room with a balcony so that everyone gets a great view of the City of Lights.
14 - Tusk Rio Casino Resort
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Tusk Rio Casino Resort.png)
Back in the gorgeous plains of South Africa, this time in Klerksdorp, this casino is full of style and substance. The gaming area covers a whopping 266,330 square feet with lots on offer to keep you entertained. This includes 12 cards and poker games tables, over 250 gaming machines and 2 bars and restaurants.
15 - Ponte 16 Resort
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Ponte 16 Resort.png)
Once again located in the gaming mad area of Macau, this casino blends together a complimentary mix of both eastern and western styles. The incredible view of the Pearl River delta, which is beside the Ponte 16 Resort, certainly does not harm its appeal. Maintaining a classic design, the building looks phenomenal both from the inside and out.
16 - Foxwoods Resort Casino
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Foxwoods Resort Casino.png)
Connecticut may not be the first place you think of when asked about the top gaming areas in the United States, but the Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket does stand out. Don’t be worried about being stuck in just one place either, as there are six different casinos here. 250 gaming tables and 4,800 slots, what’s not to love?
17 - Mohegan Sun
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Mohegan Sun.png)
Voted the top casino in the United States in 2017 by readers of USA today, it seems as if the people have spoken. The Mohegan Sun was created by the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut in 1996 and has been growing at an incredible rate ever since. The venue has three amazing casinos and is even a place to take the family with the Kids Quest entertainment facility.
18 - Crown Melbourne
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Crown Melbourne.png)
The beautiful country of Australia plays host to our next offering, and the Crown Melbourne is well worth its place on this list. The largest casino in Australia, you can take in any of the 2.628 gaming machines or 540 table games. As you would expect, there is plenty more to do there too, with over 40 retail outlets and 70 restaurants.
19 - Trilenium Casino
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Trilenium Casino.png)
For those not from the area, it may cost a little bit extra to reach the Trilenium Casino close to the Argentinian capital city of Buenos Aries. This famous establishment is the largest in Latin America, with the action spread over three floors. For the higher-rollers, there is a very upmarket VIP Hall too.
20 - Casino Estoril
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/Casino Estoril.png)
The building blocks for this work of art were actually first laid down in January 1916, making it by far one of the oldest casinos on this list. As you would expect, it has changed ownership several times but the standard remains the same. If you ever happen to find yourself in the heat of Portugal, consider giving the Casino Estoril a try.
21 - The Hippodrome Casino
!(https://4c0aa8c22572fea1c25b-dcb2c52d171c68965595a3f761d319ba.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/blogs/July Blogs/The Hippodrome Casino.png)
This list would not be complete without the best of British, and the Hippodrome Casino really does encapsulate everything about the country it lies in. It is located right in the heart of the upmarket West End of London. Open 24/7, there are three gaming floors to get your teeth stuck into. Don’t worry about getting there either, as it is right opposite Leicester Square tube station.
