Where to go to combine tourism and casino gambling?

The best destinations in the world to play casino

Playing casino online is fun, but trying your luck in real life is even more exciting. If you’re looking for a holiday destination where you can travel, but also enjoy your passion and play casino, we’ve put together a list of eight destinations to consider! Which destination will you fly to?

Las Vegas is the place to be

Las Vegas
Let’s start with the obvious: Las Vegas is the must-see for those who want to combine travel and gambling. The city was built in the middle of the desert with the aim of being a major tourist attraction, so you can take full advantage of more than 100 casinos. You can even come with your family: Las Vegas also offers many tourist attractions such as a reproduction of the London Eyes or the Eiffel Tower, as well as many amusement parks. There are also some of the largest hotels in the United States, with some offering more than 3,000 rooms. In short, whether you prefer blackjack, slots, or poker, Las Vegas promises to provide you with plenty of entertainment.

Macau across the Pacific Ocean

Las Vegas may be the most popular, but Macau, an administrative region of China, is considered the gambling capital of the world and is known as the Monte Carlo of the Orient. Thanks to its high quality of life, it welcomes many wealthy tourists from Asia and around the world. Its forty or so casinos are the biggest money earners in the world. Fifty percent of its economy is generated by casino gambling. Macau is definitely the perfect place to gamble. A trip to Macau can also be an opportunity to learn about lotteries, sports betting, and greyhound racing – 24 hours a day!

The European Monte Carlo, Monte Carlo

In Europe, Monte Carlo is the place to go to play games. The scenery is fabulous, with the mountains on one side and the Mediterranean Sea on the other. It’s also a place where you can combine business with pleasure with your family, as your loved ones can take a walk on the beach, go swimming, or visit the Principality of Monaco. Take the opportunity to visit the Casino de Monte-Carlo, which can be seen in films such as Ocean’s Twelve or Casino Royale, and which is one of the most expensive in the world. On sunny days, you can even play poker on the terrace overlooking the sea.

Atlantic City on the East Coast of the USA

If you’re travelling to the gigantic city of New York, make a stop in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a seaside resort built around gambling. In fact, it’s the main gambling town in the Northeast. The options are many: many casinos are open at night, and offer every possible gambling game, so it’s a great opportunity to improve your skills. And if you want to relax a bit, take a walk along the Boardwalk, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a great way to relax and have fun.

Paris, the city of lights

Paris may not have been built around casino gambling, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t little nuggets to be found in the City of Lights. It can be good to combine gambling pleasure with tourism in the French capital: climb the Eiffel Tower, visit the Louvre and walk the Champs-Élysées by day. Play in the evening and into the night. You could play a game of blackjack, try your luck at roulette or challenge the locals to a game of poker. In any case, Paris seems to have more than one trick up its sleeve.

Paradise Island in the Bahamas

One of the most surprising places to visit is Paradise Island in the Bahamas, with its beautiful beaches and breathtaking views of the sea, but it is also a vibrant island by day and night with its slot machine offering. The Atlantis Casino is certainly the most popular on the island with over 90 poker and blackjack tables and 700 slot machines. Paradise Island is one of the best places to spend a gaming holiday.

Reno, Nevada

Who would have thought of Reno, Nevada as a place to go gambling? There are about 20 casinos here. Reno was the casino city before Las Vegas took over. Going to Reno is like going back in time to try your luck. Closer to California than Las Vegas, it’s a great destination if you want to avoid the gigantism of Las Vegas, and want a quieter, more discreet atmosphere.

San José, Costa Rica

We end this list of destinations with San José, Costa Rica: there are about 30 casinos, horse and dog racing, and a very good exchange rate for people from Europe and America. Little known to casino enthusiasts, San Jose is the perfect destination to enjoy the tropical climate, the natural beauty of Costa Rica and to try your luck, or discover new passions!
