You’ve heard of Bellagio. You know Wynn. You know Encore. Treasure Island. Mandalay Bay. MGM. Caesars Palace. We can go on and on about all those gambling oases in the desert. You’re clearly aware of all the big Vegas casinos. And you know the big ones outside Vegas, like Foxwoods in Connecticut or the big Atlantic City casinos.
But do you know what life is like outside the United States? While Americans love to gamble at the slots or tables, people all over the planet have a similar love affair with trying their luck and winning like a champion. Here’s a look at our top favorites.
Crown Casino, Melbourne Australia
The Crown is actually the largest casino in the Southern Hemisphere, occupying a space that’s as long as two city blocks. It’s fairly modern and reminiscent of some of the high-end Vegas properties. If you’re ever down under, there’s no other casino we’d recommend more. And you don’t have to be a serious high roller to play here. You’ll find fair tables, no matter what type of player you are. Sure, you won’t find $1 roulette tables, but that kind of stuff is really only available at Palace of Chance.
Monte-Carlo Casino, Monaco
If you were forced to knock down every casino in the world but just one, chances are you’d choose the Monte-Carlo Casino to stay. It isn’t the biggest in the world, but it’s definitely one of the world’s most iconic. But don’t march into this one wearing sandals and a Hawaiian shirt. Monte-Carlo Casino is one of the glitziest, most glamorous casinos you’ll ever walk into. And if you’re thinking about making $5 last at the Blackjack tables like you would online, don’t bother. Monte-Carlo Casino caters to the highest of high rollers.
Grand Lisboa Hotel & Casino, Macau
Macau is pretty much the Las Vegas of the Orient. In fact, there’s even a Venetian in Macau that looks just like the Venetian in Las Vegas—and owned by the same guys. But that’s not our top pick for casinos in Macau. If you’re ever in the area, check out Grand Lisboa Hotel & Casino. When you walk inside, you’re greeted by the largest LED dome right above you, featuring over 1 million LED lights. And the brightness doesn’t stop there. When you hit the gaming floor, you’ll be floored by the color of money changing hands. This one is built for high rollers, too.
Many of these properties feel like absolute palaces. But online? There’s only one palace that feels as grand as these. Palace of Chance has all the games you’ll looking for—so you don’t have to venture halfway around the world to play.
