Casinos have evolved into these huge spectacles for the world to see, with ravishing buffets, attached resorts, wide selection of games and more. It looks like casinos are getting bigger and better with each passing year and luring tourists from all over the world. While we know that Macau is undoubtedly the gambling capital of the world today, we have compiled a list of some of the largest and most famous casinos in the world that give you the thrill that you are looking for during a holiday:
1. The Venetian Macao, Macau, China:
The name might give you the impression of an Italian extravaganza, but this casino is the largest in the world and is located in Macau.

In fact, the gaming area is so huge that it had to be divided into four themed sections: Red Dragon, Phoenix, Golden Fish and Imperial House. Pack your bags and visit the Disneyland counterpart of the gambling world.
