Splurge, Squander, and Fritter Away: It’s Betting Time

Posted on February 4, 2010 | Travel Destinations5 Comments


Maybe it’s a virtue for many but I sincerely find it quite exasperating to save money (more than necessary) for wife and kids. Okay, I admit it’s good but definitely not a virtue if you cannot enjoy fortune earned by you. And the easiest method to squander is gambling. And if luck’s with you, maybe you can give you wife more than you could have ever thought.

Like every vacationing spot, there are numerous places to splurge. Some like hot countries (hey, hot weather it is), some cold; some prefer countryside, some like gambling on the beach. So, here it is – The list of top ten gambling destinations.

Okay, there are people who neither prefer countryside, nor beach. They like it off the land. No, not in a plane but on a cruise. Most of the exquisite cruise tours have an in-house casino. However, if you are looking for a great casino along with many other cruise activities for your partner who isn’t interested in gambling, try the Casino in Buenos Aires in Argentina.

We are exploring perfect spots for gambling. However, it’s worth spending money if the location is rich with natural panoramas, along with variety of gambling options. To experience an out-of-the-world pleasure, grab the next flight to Morocco. The vicinity of Tangiers, Rabat, and Casablanca are among the few destinations that offer a stunning blend of natural vistas and exquisite gambling casinos. But before you book you plane tickets to Morocco, make sure you dump some jackets in your travel bag as the evenings here see an abrupt fall in temperature.

I have met few travelers who always consider beaches and cruises before planning their next holiday destination. For them, pasty sand and turquoise water is heaven. And if you are the one falling in this category, a cruise sailing through gorgeous coastline is what you need. Grab a tour provider and embark on a cruise that sails you through the shoreline of Australia and New Zealand. These vessels will definitely have lavish casinos; however, some extremely prolific and luxurious gambling spots are found in Sydney, the Gold Coast, Alice Springs, Launceston, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Canberra. Oldest and the best casino is Wrest Point Hotel Casino, which was established in 1973 in Hobart.

Brisbane casino

Being one of the richest countries in the African continent, South Africa offers much more than just gold and diamonds. South Africa casinoIf a tourist visits the Kruger National Park, and crests and coastline of Cape Town, he will definitely visit the biggest casino resort of Africa, Sun City. Casino-lovers don’t generally get bored with gambling, but if the do, the abundant wildlife of this country will keep them engrossed.

Once again, among the list of top ten gambling spots, cruises are ranked above land. People love to gamble in moving water because they have access to various magnificent ports, beaches, and cities. Some beachside destinations like Aruba, Barbados, and Bahamas allure gamblers from all over the world due to its natural ambiance and lavish amenities. This blend is offered by Caribbean Cruise.

Okay, I don’t know about you but I am fed up of cruises. So, not more cruises. Let’s keep it on land.

Macau casinoWith nine exquisite casinos, Macau in China has developed itself as a popular thriving destination for gamblers. Eight among the nine casinos operate 24×7. Their guests are endowed with largest assortment of games in the world. Hotel Lizboa is the most popular casino in the country and also probably the biggest with a three-story complex.

Gambling is another sin in this world, but not when you are in New Orleans, Louisiana. They have this trademark casino boats (these aren’t cruises. I said I am fed up of them. These are diminutive boats.) that sails along the coasts of Mississippi. Every nautical mile engages and encourages you to squander your family fortune.

If you are an avid gambler, you must have visited Atlantic City in New Jersey. No? New Jersey is attracting tourists especially gamblers from all cities of the world. You definitely cannot afford to miss it.

Atlantic City  casino

If you are anywhere near Vegas, you cannot escape the lure of casinos in this city. It’s a tribe, it’s a ritual, and it’s a sport here. Non-gamblers often blame this city for their indulgence in it. How many casinos? I ain’t a Governor, hmmm… let me guess, countless? There are infinite casinos in Las Vegas and Reno. Nevada is loaded with them.

Monte Carlo in Monaco, according to me, is the king of all other gambling destinations. From celebrities to tycoons to the richest, you will the wealthiest people getting vacant here. Yes, they do come again, and they keep coming and they will keep coming because they aren’t interested to save money for their wives and kids.

Gambling is indeed a fun pastime if you are at the right place. However, if you are at some of best casinos in the world, you will want much more than your family fortune.

Disclaimer: This list is my personal selection of gambling destinations. If any person, dead or alive, is liable to repay the amount squandered at any of the above locations, how am I responsible for that?
