Before Las Vegas was known for its celebrity chefs and extravagant productions, it was famous for one thing: gambling. While that may be overshadowed these days by everything else the city has to offer, it's still an important part of Las Vegas, and there's arguably no better place in the world to risk it all on black than the Las Vegas Strip.
Home to some of the world's most luxurious casinos, gamblers can place their wagers in a variety of fun environments. You'll feel like a high roller, even if you're just playing the penny slots, on the elegant casino floor of the Wynn. You'll feel like a stud as some of the city's sexiest blackjack dealers deal your cards at the Stratosphere's Double Down Party Pit. One step into some casinos and you'll even feel like you've been transported to an exotic locale, like Venice (The Venetian) or Egypt (Luxor).
For those looking for a wide variety of gaming options, massive casinos like the MGM Grand are sure to have just what you're searching for. Prefer a more intimate gaming experience? Then check out Encore, which has gaming tables designed to bring the dealers closer to the guests.
