7 Best Themed US Casinos
Casinos are springing up all over these days, especially in the United States. So people no longer come rushing to casinos just because they offer gambling. This is why some casinos are relying on unique themes to draw players. That said, if you want a gaming experience unlike any other, be sure to check out the following 7 casinos.
1. The Venetian (Las Vegas)
If you want to get the best of Las Vegas and Italy, then check out the Venetian casino. The name says it all since the Venetian has canals and gondola rides just like Venice, Italy. Your gondola ride can take you to a massive 120,000-square foot casino, the TAO Nightclub, Guggenheim Hermitage Museum or the Canal Shoppes. We especially recommend the latter because the Canal Shoppes feature over 100 stores, including designer boutiques like Armani, Hugo Boss, Kade Spade and Michael Kors.
2. Caesars Palace (Vegas)
The great Julius Caesar would be proud if he could see his influence on Caesars Palace. Caesars has Roman architecture and statues throughout their casino. Step outside and you'll also find swimming pools that are made to look like Roman baths. This being said, it's little wonder why Caesars has played host to so many big-time boxing matches and famed performers. This iconic casino has also been featured in hit films like Iron Man, Ocean's Eleven, The Hangover and The Hangover III.
4. Mohegan Sun (Uncasville, Connecticut)
The Mohegan Sun may not stick out as a themed casino. But take a deeper look inside this Connecticut-based resort and you'll find separate casino sections that are inspired by the Spirits of the Four Winds. Casino of the Wind features 500 slots machines, 42 poker tables and 25 table games. Casino of the Earth is even larger with 2,800 slots, 130 table games, a concert area and racebook. Casino of the Sky is also huge with 2,000 slot machines and 100 table games - all of which are found under a planetarium dome.
4. Excalibur (Vegas)
Las Vegas seems like an unlikely setting for King Arthur's Court, but Excalibur does its best Camelot impression with castle towers and a long bridge leading up to the castle. Inside you'll see more castle-type decorating, including stone walls, tower walls and Medieval-style windows.
5. Mandarin Oriental (Vegas)
The Mandarin Oriental is relatively new to the Las Vegas scene, but it's already gaining lots of attention for its unique Asian theme. The complex is decorated with all sorts of Asian décor like lanterns, dragons and lotus flowers. Beyond the decorating, you can also appreciate the serene pool and spa that's offered in the hotel.
Although the Bellagio doesn't sell its Italian theme as much as the Venetian does, you can still feel like you're taking a trip to the boot-shaped country. This casino features marble floors and bathrooms, ornate columns and chandeliers. Outside, you'll see a number of Italian villas surrounding an 8-acre lake, where the famed Dancing Fountains can be seen sprouting up every few minutes.
7. Bally's Wild Wild West Casino (Atlantic City)
New Jersey might not be anywhere close to the Wild West, but that doesn't mean you can't still have a good time inside Bally's Wild Wild West Casino. Here you'll find gold mines, a real stream, square dancing platform and saloons. You can even take a ride on the mechanical bull to see how long you can hang on.
