Las Vegas is known for a lot of things, but obviously casinos and gambling top the list. The casinos never close–at any hour of the day or night you’ll find huge action at table games and maybe even some de-stressing moments at the slots. Best of all: free booze.
The casino floor is where you’ll find the hub of social activity, and we are pretty certain Lady Luck is on your side tonight. So go big or go home (or go to the slots for quarter machines and some of that free booze) and check out these awesome casinos that are the best in Vegas.
The VenetianThe Venetian, South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV, United States
The Venetian’s casino is all about opulence. At 125,000 square feet, it’s also huge. There are so many table games that you won’t have to fight for a stool, and you can pretty much choose from every game ever invented that you can bet money on. It’s super old school, like you-might-actually-see-mobsters-coming-in old school. The high-limit rooms are big and beautiful, and they even offer complimentary gaming lessons for newbies and out-of-luck gamblers alike.
Mandalay BayMandalay Bay, South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV, United States
Though now, through no fault of its own, it has become associated with tragedy, the 135,000-square-foot Mandalay Bay remains one of the best casinos on the Strip. It’s a magnet for slot people, who can find more than 1,700 games, slot tournaments, and even high-limit slots at $100 a spin. There are plenty of awesome lounges like Eye Candy to help you refuel, and you can play a game $5 poker or roll with the big boys here, whatever your pleasure.
The D Las VegasThe D Las Vegas, Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV, United States
The D Las Vegas, recently rebranded yet still retro fun, is now a killer hot spot, and it offers two huge floors of casino action, which is rare even in Vegas. The first floor is more modern and the second floor has a vintage Vegas feel to it, and an escalator on Fremont Street will take you right up. We love the Sigma Derby machine, a simulated horse racing game that you won’t find anywhere nearby, and if you’re a Vegas rookie, it’ll be nice to raise the stakes at a game where you’ll find a bunch of newbies like yourself.
BellagioBellagio Hotel and Casino, South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV, United States
One of our favorite resorts , Bellagio kills it when it comes to casino time. It’s legendary for high-stakes poker games, and it hosts major tournaments (like the World Poker Tour), so poker aficionados come here like it’s their own private playground. If you’ve got the dough, head to Bobby’s Room, the highest-limit poker room in the world, with a $20,000 minimum buy in. Hey, we like to dream big too. The casino is super stylish and huge with a staggering total of 2,300 slot machines and a massive jackpot that can go up to the millions. The Club Prive High Limit Lounge is super exclusive and feels like a swank speakeasy bar. You can also look forward to some very rare pours here like Goslings Family Reserve Rum and a selection of fine and rare malts from Scotland.
The PalmsPalms Casino Resort, West Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV, United States
Among locals and grannies in wheelchairs, The Palms is known to have the “loosest” slots. You’ll definitely win something here. They always do promotions and, of course, also have a great slot club. Also, the video poker generally yields wins and the comps are some of the best on the strip. You’ll see a lot of locals hanging around here, so if you need tips on the best strip joints or whatever, by all means. The casino is also a magnet for celebrities because The Palms likes to stay relevant. You’ll find live music, fun times, and stiff cocktails, and there’s a pretty awesome Race & Sportsbook with huge LED TV screens if you like gambling on horses.
