2021 seems to be a top year for travel for many, as mobility is finally increasing after months of lockdowns, quarantines, and rigid controls. This means that the big casino destinations are also gearing up to receive visitors again, and many of them have brand new attractions just waiting for you to take a peek.
If you’re still not quite ready to start travelling, you can always tide yourself over by finding the best new Canadian online casinos here. Nowadays you can play both slots and table games like blackjack, roulette, and baccarat online, however, it’s not the same as genuine live experience. So, let’s have a look at some new casino travel destinations opening this year.
Resorts World Las Vegas
Resorts World Las Vegas is a brand-new mega-resort containing more than 3500 rooms, making it one of the ten biggest hotels in Las Vegas. New builds in Vegas are rare these days, and we have to go back a decade to find similarly quintessential Vegas-style new arrivals. In the past years, Vegas hotel-openings have been characterized by renovations, and while these can give way to some pretty spectacular experiences, there is something a little more tantalising about a brand-new building.
Another exciting feature of Resorts World Las Vegas is the fact that it’s located right on the Strip. It combines multiple hotels, several restaurants, a range of entertainment and of course all the casino gaming you could possibly want. Additionally, Resorts World Las Vegas is packing a punch when it comes to innovation – cashless wagering is available at both slots and table games, through a sophisticated app that lets guests combine mobile casino gaming with purchasing of hotel items and food, as well as membership in the frequent players club.
Grand Lisboa Palace Macau
The Grand Lisboa Palace is a brand new SJM Holdings project in Macau, set to open in the third quarter of 2021. The hotel complex will be home to three separate hotels: The Karl Lagerfeld Hotel Luxury Boutique Hotel, The Lisboa Palace Hotel and Palazzo Versace Macau, with a total of around 2000 hotel rooms. In addition to the hotel experience, guests will be able to enjoy a whopping 27, 000 square meters of gaming floor space, offering up to 700 gaming tables and 1,200 slot machines.
The hotel and casino complex was originally set to open in 2017 but has faced several delays, most recently due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, 2012 seems to be the lucky year for players wanting to experience a new level of luxury in Macau as the complex is scheduled to open in Q3 of 2021.
Place du Casino Monaco
Monaco’s Place du Casino has recently gone through major renovations, making the public square safer and more spacious. The renovations have also ensured that the famous Monaco Grand Prix can still maintain its traditional route and keeping major attractions such as the iconic Casino de Monte Carlo. For casino tourists, the changes don’t mean much in terms of gaming itself, but there is no doubt that the renovations have spruced up the surroundings to a major degree.
Where Las Vegas offers neon lights, all-you-can-eat buffets and entertainment of every thinkable kind, Monte Carlo offers timeless elegance, palatial surroundings, and the highest quality in everything from food to entertainment.
Holland Casino Amsterdam
While the Holland Casino in Amsterdam opened in 2018, it is still not a very well known destination for casino tourism. The reason behind this may be that Amsterdam of course isn’t known predominantly as a casino city, and as such people tend to forget about what it has to offer outside the red-light district and the Rijksmuseum. Well-worth the visit, Holland Casino offers a range of both table games and slot games and because the company is state-owned, all profits go back into the Dutch treasury. A visit to Holland Casino Amsterdam can easily be combined with a city trip of Amsterdam, exploring the canals, the cuisine, and the culture.
Ocean Casino Resort Atlantic City
The Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City first opened as Revel Casino Hotel in 2012, only to close again in 2014. However, some still saw value in the venue, and it re-opened in 2018 after a change of ownership. The Ocean Casino Resort offers 1399 rooms, a range of table games and over 1500 slot machines. A new High Limit Table Games area lets high rollers play in privacy, in a sophisticated setting with an ocean view from every window. For even more luxury, Ocean Casino Resort offers The Loft, where you can enjoy 185 square meters private luxury gaming at the 44th floor, with a floor-to-ceiling view of the Atlantic Ocean.
Ocean Casino Resort also offers a range of dining experiences in casual dining, upscale dining and lounge dining. For the casino tourist, this means the opportunity to try something new every day, without even leaving the resort.
