In this entertaining article, we take a look at five of the biggest casinos in the world, starting in the planet’s premier gambling destination.

5. Ponte 16 (Macao, China)

Occupying a unique position as the only casino in the centre of Macao, Ponte 16 takes up over 270000 square feet of space, and also includes a hotel which offers 243 modern rooms. The casino hotel is designed with Macao’s Portuguese heritage in mind and attracts billionaire gamblers from all across the world.

4. Foxwoods, Ledyard (Connecticut, USA)

Next on the list is the Foxwoods Resorts Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut, USA. 7000 slot machines and 400 card games tables are strewn across 340000 square feet of floor space, while the resort also boasts its very own Hard Rock Cafe.

3. City of Dreams (Macao, China)

This 420000 square foot hotel and casino is situated close to the Venetian in Macao. It has 1350 gaming machines and 520 poker tables, so guests are never spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a casino game to play. The interior of the casino harks back to the discos of the 1970s and 1980s.

2. Venetian Macao (Macao, China)

One of the most famous and respected casinos in the world, the Venetian in Macao is also one of the largest, with 546000 square feet of casino real estate to play with. 3000 gaming machines and 870 tables are included in the casino, but it’s the decor and atmosphere of this place which puts it on the bucket list of bettors the world over. Hotel guests can take gondola rides, just as they would in the city of Venice, while the accommodation comes with just about everything you could think of, to make your stay a pleasant one.

1. WinStar World Casino (Oklahoma USA)

Thackerville wouldn’t be the first place you’d visit for roulette and slots, but the WinStar World Casino, in this otherwise nondescript Oklahoma town, is the largest casino in the world, with over 600000 square footage of floor space. It was opened in 2003 and extended in 2013, and there is also a large hotel available on the site.
