cities that welcome gambling enthusiasts with open arms

There are a lot of different kinds of travelers, and not all of them enjoy casinos equally, some love the city, its ambience, the food and the people, but the beautiful and gorgeous casinos define some towns. All around the world casinos have been existing since the dawn of time, obviously not in the way we see them now. We have come a far way and casinos are not only a place where you gamble, but these are also institutions in themselves which hosts restaurants, shopping centers, theme parks, luxurious hotels, cruise ships and more. The days are gone when you would only associate a casino with money and gambling, although that's what casinos are about, making money. After the end of mob rule and the 1900s, we have entered an era where everything is being digitized, even gambling, so casinos had to step up their game to compete with their competition in the various other platforms. Here is an impressive list of cities which host a few of the biggest casinos in the world and welcome gamblers with open arms, places where you can wiggle about and earn some bucks.

Las Vegas, Nevada (United States of America)

Las Vegas has to be on the top of the casino list. It is the city gamblers dream of day and night, once a parched desert and now home to few of the largest casinos in the world. Las Vegas is the gambling hub of the United States of America with its extravagant, lavish and luxurious features to which there is no limit, from film celebrities to politicians to industrialists, all visit Vegas to spend the weekend and loads of money. In other parts of the world, the cities define the casino and its extent. Still, in Las Vegas, things are a bit different; here, the casinos represent the city as they are the most exceptional employers and revenue generators for the government.  The state of Nevada had banned gambling for a long time, but it realized that it is better to impose heavy taxes on the institution and make it a tourist spot. A lot of national and international investors have put their money on the Vegas strip, and they do not regret it. There are online gambling sites that some of these land-based casinos in Vegas have, whose history is similar to that of Texas. You can read the summary of online gambling in Texas for comparing and understanding the same. If you are one of those who enjoy the glam and loves walking into lush casinos then Vegas is the place for you, just get a nice-looking suit and a wad of cash, that's all it takes to be somebody in Las Veg

Macau (China)

Also known as the Vegas of the east, Macau has emerged as one of the most beautiful cities which hosts the largest casino in the world. The Chinese government is excellent in its taxation policies, and it knows that Macau is a hotspot for Chinese and international tourists, so that have also imposed taxes on the casino owners to made sure that the revenue generated is skimmed well, just like the state of Nevada in the United States. China has a high rate of inequality, and it has some of the wealthiest people in the world and also the poorest, the taxation laws help keep the poor out and make the rich pay for their considerable time at the casino. At the casinos in Macau, people not only come for gambling but to also have a good time. These casinos are popular honeymoon spots given their exclusive honeymoon suites, shopping centers, boat rides and international restaurants. Although people often complain that Hong Kong deserves the place as the casino city of the east, that's debatable. Macau has gained considerable momentum in the past few years. It has introduced new ways to keep the clients coming back. Macau is an autonomous region of the Chinese landmass which makes it easier to create laws which are different from mainland China. The Venetian Macau is the largest casino in the world with the structure designed to look like mini Venice with canals and gondolas floating in it.


There are several cities in the world that are famous for its casinos, and each country has a place which you can visit if you are interested in gambling. But it is crucial to make yourself familiar with the gambling laws of the state and get in touch with the local authorities to make sure that you aren't getting involved in something illegal.
