Connecticut, Las Vegas, Monte Carlo and Reno also winners
Las Vegas might be the city most synonymous with gambling, but it's certainly not the only destination worthy of a spot on a player's bucket list. USA TODAY 10Best teamed up with a panel of travel agents specializing in gambling travel to find the best gambling destinations on the planet, and the results are in.
After four weeks of voting, USA TODAY 10Best readers have chosen Atlantic City as their favorite gambling destination. The gambling capital of the Eastern seaboard boats eight major casino resorts, as well as an appealing beach boardwalk setting.
Runner-up for Best Gambling Destination was Connecticut, a state where you'll also find the second- and third-place finishers for 'Best U.S. Casino.'
The top 10 winners in the category Best Gambling Destination are as follows:
- Atlantic City
- Las Vegas
- Monte Carlo, Monaco
- San Juan, Puerto Rico
- On a Cruise
- Nassau, Bahamas
- Niagara Falls, N.Y./Ontario
A panel of experts picked the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Sarah Lee (TraveLee) and Brandi Poss (Mexico Group Travel) were chosen based on their extensive knowledge of casino and gambling travel.
10Best and USA TODAY extend their congratulations to all the winners. The contest was promoted on 10Best and USA TODAY.License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
