Most big casinos are designed to attract the rich and famous, and that means they have to be stunningly extravagant, luxurious places in order to get people through the doors. A quick look around famous gambling hot spots such as Las Vegas and Macao reveals dozens of beautiful casinos, but there are a few that stand head and shoulders above the rest. Here’s our list of the most beautiful casinos of all time.
While its sister Wynn Las Vegas is a stunning casino in its own right, the more recently opened gambling house in Macao is easily the most beautiful of the Wynn casino brand. Wynn Macao is proud of its status as the first ever Las Vegas style casino to land in Asia, and stands right in front of the gorgeous man-made Performance Lake, which is a stunning atrium that’s home to the Dragon of Fortune and the Tree of Prosperity. The atrium is decorated with beautiful astrological symbols from both western and Chinese cultures, but the highlight is the Golden Tree that stands outside as a symbol of hope and prosperity.
Casino Baden Baden
This 250-year old masterpiece is one of the oldest casinos in the world, even though it was closed down from 1872 to 1933 after the government of that time outlawed gambling. Legend has it that in the old days, gamblers even played with real silver and gold chips at the tables. Casino Baden Baden is most famous for having named each of its gambling salons after a famous figure in history. The Madame Pompadour room is named after the mistress of Louis XV. Gamblers are expected to wear formal attire when attending this casino, in keeping with the high class mood of the place.
Arguably Las Vegas’s most famous casino, Caesars Palace is known for its over-the-top beauty. This vast, historic, imposing and iconic no deposit casino really sums up Las Vegas – it’s a gamblers dream and a high class palace all in one. Today, Caesars Palace is owned by Harrah’s Entertainment, but it was originally created by a hotel developer called Jay Sarno, who gave the casino its name. Sarno did so because he thought the name would conjure up thoughts of the kind of richness and wealth that was associated with the Roman emperor Julius Caesar, and he wanted his guests to feel as if they were just as special as he was.
Casino De Genting
Home to much more than just gambling, the Casino de Genting in Malaysia boasts an incredible 29 restaurants as well as a fun theme park that offers a Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum, a roller coaster, a sky diving simulator, and a Rain Forest Splash pool among other luxuries.
Last but not least, Monte Carlo is renowned as one of the world’s most famous gaming venues, and a playground for the world’s rich and famous elites. The casino dates back to the mid-1800s, when it was designed and built as a place of splendor by the architect Charles Garnier, who also designed the Paris Opera house. Monte Carlo attracts all kinds of high rollers from all over the world, and the luxurious décor inside and outside ensures they feel right at home.
