Las Vegas Casinos

On my recent trip to Las Vegas I visited every single casino on the Strip and beyond, and it was certainly an eye opener! In my own unique way, I have reviewed each of the casinos I visited and you may be interested in learning more about how I found each casino from a player’s point of view.

With that in mind below I have listed an overview of each of the Las Vegas casinos I visited and to view my review simply click on the respective link.

Flamingo Casino – One of the older casinos I visited was the Flamingo casino which is conveniently located on the Strip and whilst the original Flamingo casino was built back in 1946 the current buildings dates from 1970 onwards.

SLS Las Vegas – I was quite excited to visit the SLS Las Vegas, for it was reborn from the now closed down building that hosted the Sahara Casino. However, despite the brand new decor I did find this place to be somewhat lacking in customers.

Tropicana – Opened back in 1957 the Tropicana is a popular casino to visit, however you do have to negotiate the busy escalators and walkways to get to it if you are on the opposite side of the road.

Caesars Palace Casino – I have visited Las Vegas many times and have always found building work going on at Caesars Palace Casino, however on this visit it does look like they have finally stopped adding to this magnificent building which is always worth a visit.

Circus Circus Casino – One casino that is always busy despite it being set away from most other casinos on the Strip is the Circus Circus Casino. The layout of this casino is unique however if you have kids with you then this is the place to visit thanks to its mini theme park.

Bally’s Casino – It was in 1973 that the Bally’s Casino was launched, and whilst there is nothing outstanding or amazing about the look of the building that houses the casino, it is a popular casino due to its fairly central location on the Strip.

MGM Grand – Huge and impressive and extremely busy is the best way I can describe the massive MGM Casino. This venue hosts lots of major events and as such it does tend to be one of the always busy casinos in Las Vegas.

Harrah’s Casino – I almost overlook a visit the Harrah’s Casino in Las Vegas as it is a casino you would not generally be interested in visiting unless you were staying at its onsite hotel. However, visit it I did and I found it to be a fairly impressive casino with more than enough slots to keep even the most hardened slot player happy.

Casino Royale – I only paid a quick visit to the Casino Royale Casino as the place did appear to be very cramped for space with not much room to move about. It is probably due to this casinos location and its modest size that gives the impression of it being so small however there were certainly enough gamblers roaming around, so the casino must be doing something right.

The Mirage Casino – On a hot summers day I bet you would be tempted to dive into the huge water feature located outside of the Mirage Casino, however being in winter when I visited I decided not to do so. This casino has a huge gaming floor where every possible type of casino related game can be found.

Excalibur Casino – With its unique towers and one of the most uniquely designed buildings on the Strip you will get drawn into visiting the Excalibur Casino. This was another busy casino I visited on my recent trip or Vegas and that is probably due to the hotel rooms being very reasonably priced.

Luxor – You really will not appreciate the size of the Luxor Casino when you view it outside for the unique Pyramid design of this venue and it being dwarfed by the neighbouring buildings gives the impression it is tiny. However, step in side and you will be in awe at just how huge the building actually is.

Treasure Island Casino – There has been a lot of changes at Treasure Island recently, gone has the pirate ship and regular pirate themed show outside and the casino has been rebranded and renamed as simply the TI. However, the interior of this casino has not changed and you will find it has a huge gaming floor which can be something or a maze to negotiate.

Monte Carlo Casino – Another casino that you could quite easily walk past as it has no distinguishing features is the Monte Carlo Casino, however I did pay this venue a visit and it has not lost any of its original charm.

New York-New York Casino – Probably one of the most photographed buildings in Las Vegas is the New York-New York Casino. Sitting prominently on a corner plot you can approach and get into the casino from many directions and the inside of the casino is worthy of a visit due to its unique New York theme.

Bellagio Casino – No visit to Las Vegas is going to be complete without you seeing the regular water display in the lake outside of the Bellagio Casino, however not many people actually wander inside the casino from the street outside. However, you really should do for this venue screams opulence and has an impressive and spotless gaming floor.

Mandalay Bay Casino – You do have to make an effort to get to the Mandalay Bay Casino, however that is what I chose to do and we were not disappointed. This is one huge venue which is always well presented and offers gamblers and shoppers everything they could ever want or need.

The Venetian Casino – You will possibly wish to visit the Venetian on a visit to Las Vegas, to see the mazing sight of their indoor canal system. However, this venue does have much more than that spectacular feature and you will find a huge sprawling casino packed with games of every possible type.

Paris Casino – With its huge Eiffel Tower sitting above the casino you will want to take a few pictures of the Paris Casino when in Vegas, however do consider popping into the casino itself for it is very well laid out and offers everything you could need for a fun filled gambling session.

Planet Hollywood Casino – The last time I visited the Planet Hollywood I ended up having to sit through a timeshare presentation! However, there were no signs of the timeshare salesmen this time and the casino which is certainly hip and trendy is a sight to behold.

Wynn Casino – Huge and very impressive is the view of the Wynn Casino from the Strip, and this is certainly something of a high rollers playground and does attract a lot of well to do visitors. However, I decided to pop in and found the casino very well presented, clean and as you would expect huge.

Aria Casino – Catering for a young and lively crowd the Aria Casino is a huge sparkling building located on the Strip in Las Vegas, and one of the main reasons I chose to visit this casino is their huge range of Brand new slot machines, which are wheeled onto the gaming floor very regularly.

Cosmopolitan Casino – The gaming floor at the Cosmopolitan Casino is over 100,000 square foot in size and as such you are going to find every type of casino card and table game and slot machine you could ever wish to play, in fact I did and had hours of fun at this very popular casino.
