The World’s Largest Casinos
Casino resorts have always tried their best to one-up their rivals, and the best way to go about this is by building bigger and bigger.
That means today we’re seeing some of the largest casinos ever created, enough to cover more than a few entire football fields at a time. Casinos so massive that they can happily accommodate thousands of people at any given time, while offering them all plenty to do and see.
While Las Vegas has always prided itself when it comes to the style and size of casinos, there’s a new player in town: the region of Macau, China. Despite China’s gambling laws, Macau has continued to prosper in recent years, and more and more gigantic casinos pop up every month as the entire region turns into the world’s gambling centre.
These are the biggest casinos in the world, offering a range of table games, a selection of real slots NZ online casinos would be proud of, restaurants, and more.
- The MGM Grand Macau
The first one the list is casino giant MGM’s Macau resort, the Grand Macau. Covering 267,00 square feet, and offering 1545 slot and table games, it’s truly a sight to behold, and lives up to the well-known name of MGM.
The venue is based off its smaller brother in Vegas, and is owned jointly by MGM and daughter of Hong King magnate Stanley Ho. The Grand Macau is complete with a massive aquarium in the lobby with an assortment of over 1000 fish.
- Casino Ponte 16
Another one based in Macau, specifically within its Rich Inner Harbour, this casino is unique as one of its main themes is based on the internationally famous singer, Michael Jackson. In fact, MJ was so popular among the casino’s owners that they had several authentic items of his on display.
Built over 270,000 square feet, the Ponte 16 offers 9 bars and restaurants, and up to 500 slots and table games like Roulette, Blackjack, Poker and Baccarat.
- Foxwoods Resort Casino
The only one that’s not based in Macau, but instead in Ledyard, United States, Foxwoods is a 340,00 square feet monster that boasts almost 8000 table and slot games, as well as 40 restaurants and bars.
It’s a combination of six different casinos that are linked in one resort and owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe Nation.
- City of Dreams, Macau
Over 100,000 square feet larger than the previous entry, City of Dreams has gained international renown for its size, and some people say it would take an entire lifetime to explore the entire complex.
If you get tired of exploring, there are almost 2000 slot and table games to choose from on the main casino floor, all of which is just off of the House of Dancing Water, the world’s largest water-based stage production.
- The Venetian Macau
Finally, the biggest of the big, the Venetian in Macau is a sight to behold, and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Asia.
Covering an enormous 546,00 square feet -which is only the main building itself – the casino offers luxury hotels, 4200 games, and plenty of clubs, eateries, gift shops, and much, much more.
