Bitten by the Travel Bug? Experience the World’s Finest Casinos!

MGM Grand

Traveling is one of the most fascinating and rewarding pastimes on the planet. It broadens our horizons and educates us in ways we never thought possible. As a traveler, I’ve come to appreciate the diversity of different cultures. More importantly, it is our commonalities that resonate across geographic boundaries. Ever since I can remember, Las Vegas held tremendous appeal to me and my travel companions.

Caesars Palace

It is a city that offers unbridled adult entertainment with slots, card games, table games, and poker aplenty. As a casino aficionado, and somebody who has worked in the industry for many years, I simply love the energy-infused appeal of the quintessential modern casino. These are majestic juggernauts where you can immerse yourself in a surreal experience with entertainment options as far as the eye can see.

The iconic Las Vegas strip is the stuff of legend. It is featured in movies like The Hangover, Casino, Last Vegas, and Leaving Las Vegas. Sin City generates billions of dollars per annum in revenues, and The Strip comes alive from the Stratosphere to Mandalay Bay. When you’re ready for an unforgettable land-based casino experience in the US, Las Vegas trumps Atlantic City easily.

Be sure to get maximum bang for your buck by pricing your options at Spirit Airlines or Frontier Airlines. It’s a good idea to check out annual calendars with hotel rates at all your favorite hotels like the MGM Grand, Caesar’s Palace, Bellagio, Cosmopolitan, Luxor, New York New York and Mandalay Bay.

One of the best things about Las Vegas is the variety of shows. Guys like David Copperfield, Criss Angel, Jerry Seinfeld, and Carrot Top will blow your mind. Singers like Celine Dion, Boyz II Men, Britney Spears, & Don and Mary are the icing on the cake when you are traveling to Las Vegas.

Let’s Head East to Asia and Enjoy Macau

Casino Lisboa

Macau is the world’s biggest, and most exciting casino playground. Whatever you can do in Vegas, you can do 10 times more of in Macau. Some of the most popular hotels include: Broadway Macau, City of Dreams Casino, Diamond Casino at Holiday Inn, Casino Kam PEK Paradise, Grand Lisboa Palace, Imperial Palace Hotel, Galaxy Macau Casino, Greek Mythology at Beijing and scores of others. FYI, the GGR (gross gaming revenue) of Macau increased by $2.73 billion in 2016. Macau is the only place in China where casino gambling is legal and it is becoming a major tourist haven in Asia.


Besides for casinos, many non-gambling facilities are now being built, and some of the great hotels to visit in the area include Wynn Palace and the Parisian. According to the University of Nevada Las Vegas, revenues in 2015 amounted to $28.855 billion. The most popular games in 2015 were Cussec, Blackjack, Baccarat and the biggest of them all, VIP Baccarat. If you traveling to Macau, get ready for an entertainment adventure of epic proportions. This city caters to your every need, bar none.

Fancy a Cruise – Make it Carnival of Casino Entertainment!

Cruise Ships

Of all the adventures I’ve enjoyed, cruise ships are without doubt the most rewarding. As a self-proclaimed casino enthusiast, I have to tell you that cruise ships are veritable floating cities where you are a king or queen from the moment you board until you disembark. There are many world-class cruise ships you can travel on, including Celebrity Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, Norwegian and the like. These ocean-bound adventures are stunning in every way. Passengers are treated to red carpet luxury in every sense of the word. All meals are included, and your cabin is a comfortable nest while the motion of the ocean allows you to sleep. You’ve got comedy shows and extravaganzas on board, by phase, restaurants, snack shops and bars as far as the eye can see. 


And yes, don’t forget the swimming pools, spas, Jacuzzis, water slides and parties on board. But for me, a cruise ship vacation is the perfect opportunity to buy into a game of Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, or Craps. There is simply no substitute for the feeling you get from playing casino games on a cruise ship while the entire casino is sailing between islands. All the benefits you get at a land-based casino are yours to enjoy, including complimentary drinks, massages for high rollers, photo opportunities, big wins and progressive jackpots. Perhaps I’m a little biased towards cruise ships, but these are amazing all-expenses included vacations (except for drinks packages). Cruise ships are extremely affordable if you avoid the high-end cruise lines. Celebrity and Carnival are great ideas if you’re looking for a casino-themed cruise experience.

Ever Tried the Live Casino Experience?

Live Casino

The live casino experience is unique. For most folks, the thought of gambling requires you to relocate yourself to a casino. This is a tedious undertaking at the best of times, and it costs a pretty penny to get yourself to Las Vegas, Macau or on a cruise ship. Fortunately, casual players and high rollers can enjoy an entirely authentic casino experience with live casino games. This is cutting-edge stuff, since the games stream from secure casino facilities direct to your screen – wherever you are. Of course, you need to be in a regulated gaming territory to play for real money. Live casino games are easily enjoyed from the comforts of home, or on the go. You don’t need to travel far – just reach out for your smart phone or your PC and you can be in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Macau or anywhere else in the world at the click of a button. Live casino games also offer the same payouts as land-based casinos, and they are lots of fun when you’re traveling between cities or countries.
