It’s getting to that time of year again when we begin planning our summer holidays. The exciting thing about planning a trip anywhere (except for work or a trip to a local shop) is that many countries are now easing border restrictions after two long years of staying at home. However, that didn’t stop people from visiting their favorite casinos. It simply gave them a different way to try a huge number of casinos they wouldn’t have ordinarily even known about!
1. Destination – Cyberspace
One of the things which casino goers may never have considered prior to the pandemic days is the fact that cyberspace has more casinos than you had ever imagined possible registered in literally every country in the world where gambling is legal.
In fact, sometimes real money gambling online can be even more fun. Just stop to think of the sheer number of casinos that allow gambling for real money listed on a comparison or review site like Online Casinos. The casinos found there offer all kinds of games from pokies to poker – and the best part is that you can step away from the play for a trip to the loo. What land-based casino would hold up the game for that?
2. Destination – Macau, China
If you have been dreaming of finally touring China, why not make this a trip where you can do a bit of sightseeing? China holds some of the world’s most amazing relics of the past and with the rows and rows of casinos you’ll find in a city like Macau, there will be much to take up every moment of every day.
It may be holiday time, but no one ever promised that you’d actually get a chance to rest! You can do that when you return home. Restaurants as well as casinos that line the waterway will be open 24 hours, 7 days a week. While you are there, and perhaps taking a break from the Lisboa Casino or Macau Palace Casino, you can always get in a bit of go-karting or golf. If you want another type of betting, try the horses or greyhounds.
3. Destination – Las Vegas, NV
What can be said about Las Vegas, Nevada other than it is probably the most renowned city for casinos in the entire world? Perhaps it was the celebrity of none other than Frank Sinatra himself who brought such notoriety to Sin City but famous it is.
With more than enough casinos to keep you playing during your entire fortnight Stateside, you wouldn’t want to miss out on a few spins of the wheel at Caesar’s Palace where there is a show every night of the week, Vegas style. No, you won’t be enjoying an Ol’ Blue Eyes show but when you hit the palace, don’t be repeating the last words he said on this earth. He told his wife, in the fashion of any good gambling man, “I’m losing.”
4. Destination – Atlantic City, NJ
While not quite as equally famous as Las Vegas, Atlantic City, NJ, offers visitors casinos like the ever-popular Borgata. Caesar’s is also represented here and not to be outdone by those greats, you will find that the Hard Rock Café is also busy 12 months out of every year come rain, shine or snow. As a rock-n-roll themed casino, music fans will have great fun while making the rounds of all the games and pokies.
Don’t forget that only NJ rivals NY for some of the nation’s best, and most authentic, pizza. Just remember to wear short sleeves because East Coast pizza has that delicious habit of dripping grease down your arm to your elbow when you fold, hold and bite!
5. Destination – Salzburg, Austria
Oddly, when you think of Salzburg, Austria you think of a city of culture. You think of Salzburg as being the birthplace of Mozart and some of the world’s most beautiful architecture from the Baroque era. One of the things, besides culture and casinos, that attracts visitors from the UK is the relative proximity as opposed to holiday destinations in China or the United States. This can leave holiday goers more time to stay and play while spending less time traveling.
For a bit of trivia, the Casino Salzburg located at the Klessheim Castle first opened its doors in 1934 but had to close during WWII. It was reopened a few years after the war ended, in 1951, and has been going strong for almost three quarters of a century since then.
6. Destination – Monte Carlo, Monaco
Imagine if we could live in the days when Princess Grace graced the glitz of Monaco. For a holiday where you can gamble in a land of glamour, Monaco would be the place. Another of Monte Carlo’s claims to fame would be that it has been home to prestigious, if fictional, spies like 007, James Bond. If you are looking to make a wager in utter luxury, then Monte Carlo it is. However, don’t forget to plan some time for sunbathing on the Mediterranean that boasts some of the world’s most stunning landscapes.
7. Destination – Nassau, Bahamas
Winter and spring months can be quite cold in northern countries and cities, so a summer holiday in the Bahamas may be just what the doctor ordered. Nassau is home to the Atlantis Resort located on Paradise Island.
This casino set in a tropical paradise has been host to some of the world’s most publicized tournaments such as the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Can you guess what game the tournament represents? With amazingly beautiful glass sculptures and a sparkling blue ocean to admire, you will not find a lovelier place to holiday and play.
With that, we’ll leave you at the lucky number 7. Here’s hoping luck stays with you throughout your travels as you take a bit of time for fun while getting a chance to get in some adventures in lands you’ve never before visited. Gaming is fun, but so too is a little R&R, so take time out to enjoy the locals. A healthy blend of fun in the sun and luck at the table is all it takes to make this one summer holiday to remember.
