North America's Gambling Paradise: The Five Biggest US Casinos (Part 2)
When you hear casino and USA, you probably think of Las Vegas first. And that's absolutely normal. Perhaps your next association is the Little Vegas of the East Coast - Atlantic City. And have you ever wondered where the biggest casinos in the States are? We will reveal a secret to you - none of the top 5 is in any of the listed gambling centers.
5. Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa, Florida
We start in the southeast. In the state of Florida, Tampa is so far in the shadow of Miami and Orlando in terms of popularity, but not as a super-major casino center. When you hear Hard Rock, you know the music is involved. It's the same here. It was built in 2004 and has over 5,000 tables, turntables, etc. All this on 245 thousand square meters. Smoking is allowed in a huge part of them. The biggest bets on the machines reach $1,000 per spin.
4. Thunder Valley Casino Resort, Lincoln, California
Lincoln is not just an American president and a car brand. Lincoln is also one of the most interesting places in the state of California. Mainly because it has one of the biggest casinos. Built in 2003 but seriously enlarged 7 later. The hotel part has over 400 rooms and an amazing spa center. An outdoor amphitheater plus a total of 14 restaurants and bars complete the setting. If you are a golfer, the casino course is one of the highlights in the States.
3. Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mashantucket, Connecticut
Here we are talking about more than 344 thousand square meters, which appeared in the world in 1992. The total number of games and slots is more than 5500. The shopping center includes 85 of the most expensive boutiques in the world. One of the three largest poker rooms is part of the services offered. It has 114 tables. The hotel section can easily accommodate all of their players because it is the fourth largest in the country outside of Las Vegas.
2. Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT
It's more than obvious that they love big casinos in this state. The bronze and silver medals went to Connecticut. To get to the battle for silver, this casino went through 3 major renovations since its opening in 1996. After them, the complex has 45 restaurants and bars. The shopping center is located on 130 thousand square meters. The casino is almost 3 times larger... The resort is home to two professional sports teams - from the women's NBA and the national lacrosse league. You can easily reach Manhattan in New York by helicopter.
1. WinStar World Casino & Resort, Thackerville, Oklahoma
You have seen for yourself that the big casinos in the USA are hidden in not so popular parts of the country. The same goes for the big winner. Literally... The numbers speak volumes. Over 400,000 square meters, more than 8,500 games and machines, 155 game tables. The complex is divided into 4 different casino "beaches". Their decoration is in the style of New York, Paris, Beijing and Rio. It all depends on your mood… Add a 3,600-seat concert hall and an 18-hole golf course. If you're in the US and can't get to Oklahoma, try the online version of the casino. It is legal in most states…
