World’s Most Famous Casinos

Even though we live in an age where online gaming has taken centre-stage, land-based casinos were expected to nose dive in terms of popularity but contrary to belief, continue to go from strength to strength. Perhaps it’s the glitz and glamour, the allure of the lights and the atmosphere that casinos often generate that keep punters coming back.

In the modern era, casinos all over the world are becoming more lavish and bespoke with their never-ending number of features and benefits; with many incorporating clubs, restaurants and hotels into their grounds.
