There are lots of places across the world that are well known for their casinos and the most recognisable of them all is, of course, Las Vegas. The bright lights and big city dreams draw millions of people every year, each one hoping to get one step closer to their dreams. But there are also much smaller places that, although younger than Las Vegas, have no less of the glamour and the allure of Sin City.

Places like Macau have recently begun to surpass Las Vegas in terms of revenue and popularity, but because of the iconic nature of the place, Las Vegas remains number one in people’s minds. It’s not only casinos that pull in the tourists. There are many places that are branching out their casino style into shopping centres, hotel resorts and much more.

They are more family focused destinations and draw people with their wide variety of attractions, allowing the gamer to play, while the rest of the family enjoys some shopping or enjoys a meal. These kind of places are becoming more the norm than the traditional casino and it doesn’t show any sign of stopping its growth.


In this brave new world of technology we are seeing the way we do things change in a huge number of ways. Online casino games provided by casinos like www.mobilecasino.mobi have really come into their own in the age of the portable gaming device and it’s not uncommon to see people taking a few minutes out of their day to enjoy games like poker or blackjack on their smart phone or tablet device.

To all intents and purposes it would seem that the age of the brick and mortar casino is dead, but if you look a little closer, you can see that not only is it alive, it is changing; morphing into something new and exciting.
