The Most Iconic Casino Buildings Around the Globe

Though online casinos have their own charm, nothing beats the experience of visiting an iconic casino. Not only will you have an unparalleled gambling experience at these breathtaking edifices; but they are also architectural marvels!

From Venice to Singapore, casinos around the globe stand as monuments of luxury and extravagance. Here are three iconic casino buildings around the globe: Monte Carlo Casino, The Venetian, and The Bellagio.

Monte Carlo Casino

Monte Carlo Casino is unquestionably one of the world’s most iconic gambling venues, rivaled only by those in Las Vegas and Macau for glamour and glitter. But Monte Carlo remains unrivalled when it comes to class, sophistication and epic ballerness (albeit in tuxedo and cigar form).

Beginning its distinguished history in 1863, when Prince Charles III appointed French businessman Francois Blanc to manage the Societe des Bains de Mer – which would later become Monte Carlo Casino – Francois Blanc used his experience running successful casinos in Germany to take advantage of Prince’s love of gambling and build an empire through it.

At its height of popularity, Blanc’s casino was the place to be. Bono, Nelson Mandela and Bill Gates were regular visitors – even shutting down his on-site opera house, a quarter-size replica of Paris’ Palais Garnier opera house – so one VIP could propose to his girlfriend…and she accepted! That is dedication to customer service.

The Venetian

In addition to gambling, The Venetian provides its guests with a variety of restaurants and bars. Furthermore, this property features four outdoor pools with water slides, spa services, fitness center and even live performances at its Venetian Theater.

Hotel restaurants provide an array of cuisine, ranging from casual burgers and shakes to fine steak and seafood dishes, offering cocktails and wine as well.

This casino’s architecture is inspired by Venice, with canals and Italian buildings lining its corridors and an opulent design reminiscent of canal-side Venice. As its lavish appearance has made it a frequent backdrop for movies and television shows, guests can ride gondolas for an up-close view of this breathtaking architecture. Furthermore, guests can stay in luxurious rooms that include living areas with two flat-screen TVs, spacious bathrooms and luxurious bedrooms; upgrade for even greater space by paying an additional cost.

The Bellagio

Bellagio Casino Resort and Hotel are known for their iconic dancing jets of water, but also boast Botanical Gardens and a Gallery of Fine Art. Additionally, the luxury resort provides guests with various dining and entertainment options at Le Cirque, Picasso and LAGO restaurants; plus world-class shopping at Via Bellagio.

The Bellagio stands out among casinos as an iconic destination, known for its stunning architecture and luxurious interior design. Even non-gamblers know this landmark thanks to its inclusion in Ocean’s Eleven.

Not only is the Bellagio Casino known for its beautiful gambling floor, it is also renowned as an incredible tourist attraction and features exquisite dining establishments such as its acclaimed restaurants – offering dishes from around the globe as well as multiple bars and lounges such as its world-famous Fountain Bar.

Sun City Casino

Sun City is an exclusive resort and casino complex situated in South Africa’s North West Province near Rustenburg. Comprising multiple hotels, casinos and timeshare facilities, this opulent destination has gained fame as “The Resort That Never Sleeps”.

Sol Kerzner opened this resort in 1979 by exploiting loopholes in apartheid laws that prohibited gambling and topless entertainment shows, located at that time in Bophuthatswana Bantustan. It became operational outside of these restrictions.

Kerzner used his wealth to draw big name performers to the resort, such as Elton John, Frank Sinatra and Queen. Their performances at 6,000-seater Super Bowl Arena can be witnessed to this day.

The casino features a comprehensive selection of slot machines and table games, in addition to hosting numerous entertainment events throughout the year – recently, filming of Drew Barrymore/Adam Sandler film Blended took place here.
