Gambling remains an extremely popular activity all around the world, and there are some pretty fun, exotic and offbeat locations where you can go to get your fill of the gambling experience. Here, we will look at some of the most interesting gambling locations in the world.
Riverboats in Indiana
Yes, you read that right – Indiana has some very cool riverboat casinos for you to try out! Eight of the 15 licensed casinos in the state are riverboats, making it one of the most unique gambling locations in the USA, and this is the case since the early 1990s, which was when casinos were legalized in the state according to gambleindiana.com. Early on, casinos were only allowed to be on water in Indiana, other than the French Lick resort, but these rules have now been relaxed so that there are land-based casinos in Indiana as well. Further changes to laws have meant that riverboat casinos could be moored in front of land-based hotels and properties, and they need not be running on the water – only floating in one location would suffice. This was done to make these casinos competitive with those in neighbouring states.
Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world, and while it is known for the glitz and the glamour and some of the biggest and most famous casinos in the world, there are also quite a few offbeat locations that are a must-try for any gambling fans who are visiting the city. For example, check out Bally’s. At first glance, it may not stand out in any spectacular way when compared to the rest of the casinos on the strip, but don’t let first impressions fool you. For Halloween- and horror-movie lovers, this is the ultimate place to gamble in the city, as this Vegas landmark is known to be haunted. Guests frequently report ghost sightings in hallways and stairwells, likely because this is the site of one of the worst disasters in the history of Las Vegas: a fire in which more than 80 people died in 1980.
Casino Jet Lounge
With airlines increasingly adding luxury features to attract high-rolling customers, the Casino Jet Lounge from Airjet Designs takes air travel to another level. Gaming tables, bars, and spaces to move freely during a flight are built into the chic interior design of the plane. The premise behind this bizarre casino venue was to rekindle the golden age of air travel by offering passengers a flying experience that is truly special, and it is certainly miles away from what you experience on a regular flight.
Desert Cave Hotel, Australia
The Desert Cave Hotel and Casino is located in Coober Pedy in the Australian outback, making it one of the most isolated gambling locations in the world – it is 1560 km from Melbourne, the nearest major city. It is also underground, making it perfect to escape the heat of the Australian outback, while the experience of gambling at various tables and machines underneath a desert is definitely one worth trying out.
