Everyone thinks of Las Vegas for high-rolling fun, but there is a big world waiting to be explored. So, where are the best places to try your hand with lady luck?
Many of these world-class cities are on our bucket-list but there are some lesser known destinations across the seven continents (okay, maybe not Antarctica) that may inspire a trip to new regions of Europe, South America, Asia, Africa, or even a city in your home country. Or perhaps you’re planning already planning a trip and some money-making opportunities are closer than you thought!
- Las Vegas has more felt tables and slots than any city in the world but California as a state actually outdoes Nevada.
- The Venetian Macao is actually the seventh largest building in the world, by floor area
- For $25,000/night you can throw a party in the Palms Hardwood Suite, equip with your own basketball court.
- In 1992 Archie Karas rolled into Vegas with $50 to his name, and within three years turned that into $40,000,000
