The Worlds Best Casinos - Macau


Macau is a special administrative region in the southeast of China. As gambling is illegal in the People's Republic, adventurous people have been flocking from this populous market to try their luck in the casinos of Macau, making gambling its biggest industry. Enormous gambling venues are popping up constantly, such as the Venetian (pictured) which was the largest casino in the world when it opened in 2007.

According to the Olamacauguide.com, Macau Casinos are expected to pull in more than US$5 billion in annual revenues in 2009, which is more than Las Vegas. "Gambling in Macau was already legalized in 1847 under the rule of Portuguese and since then Macau has become known worldwide as the Monte Carlo of the Orient."

  1. I don't think there's any doubt that Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world. It is suffering now because of the economy, but Vegas when its down beats any other gambling city.
