Desert Cave Hotel, Australia

The Desert Cave Hotel and Casino is located in Coober Pedy in the Australian outback, which has attracted visitors in search of its elusive opals for years. Like many of the inhabitants of Coober Pedy, the hotel is primarily located underground. Built into the outback, the casino is also below ground level and is the perfect place to escape the heat and experience dugout gambling. In contrast to most casinos, the Desert Cave Hotel and Casino is not near any major city, which adds to its unique appeal.

Instead of exploring by day and gambling at night, try gambling during the day and exploring at night — or practicing your night photography 😉

Casino Jet Lounge

With airlines increasingly adding luxury features to attract high-rolling customers, the Casino Jet Lounge from Airjet Designs takes air travel to another level. Gaming tables, bars, and spaces to move freely during a flight are built into the chic interior design of the plane. It’s the perfect opportunity for ballers who can’t wait to arrive at their destination to let the gambling begin.

Bally’s, Las Vegas

At first glance, Bally’s in Las Vegasmay not stand out in any spectacular way when compared to the rest of the casinos on the strip, but don’t let first impressions fool you. For Halloween- and horror-movie lovers, this is the ultimate place to gamble in the city, as this Vegas landmark is known to be haunted. Guests frequently report ghost sightings in hallways and stairwells, likely because this is the site of one of the worst disasters in the history of Las Vegas: a fire in which more than 80 people died in 1980. While this casino may not be for everyone, it’s a perfect match for those with a penchant for the paranormal.

What To Pack For A Casino Trip

A trip to a city like Las Vegas warrants its own special packing list, complete with hangover kits and a camera that works in low light. For a more general idea of what to bring to a casino destination, it’s all about your choice of clothing. Many casinos have specific dress codes, so you don’t want to arrive only to realize that you won’t be allowed inside because you didn’t pack properly. However, perhaps more importantly, make sure your clothing and shoes are comfortable, as comfort boosts confidence, and confidence is key when playing live blackjack 😉
