Some casinos are known for their size, others for their loud and flashy atmosphere. With the whole world on the table, there is something for everyone.
- The Bellagio
In its prime in 1998, the Bellagio was the most expensive hotel and casino ever constructed. Other buildings have gone on to claim the title, but the Bellagio is still well known for its high table limit of $10,000, with rumors of games reaching the million dollar level. The restaurant atmosphere has gathered the attention of the AAA Diamond Awards by earning 11 5-diamond awards.
- Venetian Hotel
In the center of faux Venice, surrounded by gondolas and water canals, is a casino that is both large and luxurious. The vast interior is decorated with the same Venetian theme. The casino is also attached to a world-class spa.
- City of Dreams
The large Chinese casino located in the gambling peninsula of Macau is decorated internally and externally with flashing lights. The crown jewel of the casino is a round outdoor theater containing 3.7 million gallons of dancing water.
The massive casino within the towering 10,500,000 square foot Macau hotel reaches a total of 550,000 square feet. The Venetian casino is so gigantic that it was divided into four major sections: the Golden Fish, the Imperial House, the Red Dragon, and the Phoenix. The Chinese tribute to Venice contains its fair share of golden statues, gondolas, and swimming pools.
- The Wynn and The Encore
Two sister hotel buildings stand in Las Vegas: The Wynn and the Encore. The two buildings appear to glow gold in the sunlight, which is plentiful in the Nevada desert. The larger sister building, the Wynn, has been awarded the AAA 5 Diamond Award, the Forbes 5 Star award, and the Mobil 5 Star Award, and the Encore has earned its own fair share of honors.
- Resorts World Sentosa
The enormous Singapore center of entertainment, the Resorts World Sentosa, contains not one but two casinos. The entertainment giant includes a Universal Studios theme park as well as the world’s largest oceanarium, which is a gigantic salt water fish tank that spectators and scientists alike can come to view.
- Marina Bay Sands
Also in Singapore, the world’s largest atrium casino lies within the Marina Bay Sands. With five hundred gambling tables, the casino offers everything a gambler may care to look for. On the roof of the Marina Bay Sands, the SkyPark offers a 150 meter swimming pool and a view of Singapore from every side of the building.
The most expensive casino building in the world is the CityCenter found in Las Vegas, Nevada. This building is the largest employer in the casino business. While originally estimated to cost $4 billion to construct, the sum came to a grand total of $9 billion USD.
