TripAdvisor's Lucky 7 Gambling Destinations in the World

1. Smilin' on the Strip: Las Vegas, Nevada

The entertainment capital of the world offers more than 100 casinos, and is widely regarded as the premier gambling destination in the world. Featuring renowned casinos such as the Bellagio, MGM Grand, the Mirage, Mandalay Bay and the Venetian, and combine that with amazing shows, spas, golf, shopping and food, and Sin City just keeps upping the ante. According to one TripAdvisor traveler, "As a gambler, this is the place I want to be."

2. Player's Privilege: Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Set upon the Mediterranean, the beautiful Monte-Carlo maintains an image as the place where well-mannered and well-heeled ladies and gentlemen go to gamble. Most famous among the city's elegant casinos is the opulent Casino de Monte-Carlo, where you shouldn't be surprised to see gamblers in tuxedos or ordering martinis shaken, not stirred. Said a TripAdvisor traveler, "Stay a while and check out the players and how much money is played - WOW."

3. Luck on the Lake: Lake Tahoe, Nevada

If your idea of apres ski, sailing or hiking is gambling, there may not be a better place in the world than Lake Tahoe. Straddling the Nevada/California border and less than 50 miles from another gambling mecca, Reno, the city features the stunning Lake Tahoe, mountains, lush forest and outstanding casinos on the south shore, such as Harrah's, Harvey's, Horizons and MontBleu. According to a TripAdvisor traveler, "There are several lively casinos located just over the state line."

4. Holy Macau: Macau, China

Known to some as the Vegas of the Far East, Macau is home to some of the biggest and best new casinos in the world. With amazing 16th century Portuguese architecture throughout the city, and fine cuisine, travelers can take in remarkable sights and tastes when they are not enjoying the tables at wonderful casinos such as Hotel Lisboa and the Mandarin Oriental Macau. Said a TripAdvisor traveler, "If you're into gambling, this is the place."

5. Jersey, a Shore Bet: Atlantic City, New Jersey

This legendary seaside gambling hotspot features world-class gambling opportunities in fantastic casinos including Harrah's, Bally's, Trump's Taj Mahal, Caesar's, Wild Wild West and the Borgata, to name a handful. Outside of the pits, travelers can enjoy their winnings with a stroll and some salt water taffy along the famous Boardwalk. Stated a TripAdvisor traveler, "Atlantic City is worth every penny, and then some!"

6. Bettor's Paradise: Paradise Island, Bahamas

One of several gambling gems in the Caribbean, the beautiful Bahamas is where travelers must decide how to split their time between placing bets and soaking in the sun. Paradise Island features the world-famous Atlantis resort, with the largest casino in the Caribbean. In addition, Crystal Palace in nearby Nassau is perfect for visitors wanting to try their luck and kick back. According to a TripAdvisor traveler, "Paradise Island is the 'place' for gambling."

7. Top Billing: Biloxi, Mississippi

One of the most well-known destinations on the gambling-rich Mississippi coast, Biloxi has been steadily rebuilding since Hurricane Katrina, and the tables are open. Just a ninety-minute drive to New Orleans, the area also features wonderful golf, fishing charters, and shows, and the Beau Rivage Casino, Imperial Palace, Isle of Capri, and Treasure Bay are just a few among many great gambling venues. Said one TripAdvisor traveler, "Biloxi is up and running, casino-wise."
