5 Cities In The World To Put On Your Poker Face

If you’re well versed in Black Jack and passionate about traveling.


If you’re well versed in Black Jack and passionate about traveling, you may want to know where to go for a fusion of both. There are some obvious destinations we’ve compiled on this list, but we’ve also included cities that aren’t typically known for casinos. For a getaway where you can spell out BINGO while being a wandering tourist at the same time, here are five great options:

1. Macau, China


As a region that technically belongs to China but doesn’t follow the same legal framework, Macau has its own cultural and monetary system. Since its turnover from a Portuguese colony to mainland China in 1999, one of the conditions from the transition was that Macau would retain its autonomy for 50 years. Today, more money flows through Macau’s casinos than anywhere else in the world, making it the best city to put on your poker face. With Las Vegas-branded casinos merging onto the scene, including: Wynn Resorts & MGM, Macau is at the top of the list for wealthy tourists all over Asia, and now, the world.

2. Las Vegas, USA


What happens in Vegas! There’s no doubt that this city of Elvis impersonators, dancing fountains and a Playboy bar hosts the most impressive casinos in the U.S. Constructed in the middle of the desert, travelers arrive in Sin City not only to roll the dice, but also to devour luscious cuisine, dance from dusk to dawn, and to catch a Grammy-award winning show. Las Vegas has grown from a city jam-packed with slot machines to a hub of vibrant entertainment. Good luck sleeping. Viva Las Vegas!

3. Monte Carlo, Monaco


If there is glamour in gambling, then one must be referring to the stylish Monte Carlo. Since the 19th century and a newly established railway system, Monaco has continued to captivate the wealthy and jetsetters across Europe. During a spin at Roulette, you may be distracted by the gorgeous views of the Mediterranean Sea. Just like how Frank Sinatra sings: Luck be a lady…or in this case, James Bond.

4. London, UK



London might not be the first city that comes to anyone’s mind regarding casinos, but even online casino sites like casinoreviews.co.uk can attest to the fact that London hubs plenty of public casinos. Furthermore, there are even exclusive casinos hidden inside the Ritz and the Crockfords Club enforcing rigid policies at the entrance. Although, the door is always wide open for those willing to shell out £10,000 buy in. Ready to roll?

5. San José, Costa Rica


Another city may not be on any traveler’s radar for placing bets is in Costa Rica. Capital city San José alone contains 30 casinos with a fairly alluring exchange rate for American, Canadian and European travelers. Combined with Costa Rican tropical vibes, this is a fantastic destination for both strike-your-luck and vacation modes.
