Visit Top Casinos In Las Vegas



Have you ever wanted to go to Las Vegas? If you ever have wanted to go but couldn’t figure out where to stay than this blog may just be for you. I will compile the top casinos in Las Vegas list but to be honest I haven’t attended all the casinos in Las Vegas. Also lets call this an introduction post because I am going to do a series of Las Vegas posts. I am not sure I could really justify writing a 30,000 word blog post on Las Vegas. LOL

So, lets start off with this. When thinking about top casinos you need to know what you are going for. An example of this is are you going to play poker, maybe you are going for a buffet and lastly maybe you are going to go play low limit black jack? Therefore you need to know what you are going to be doing if you are going to travel to a casino. Personally here in this blog I will just generalize these casinos and probably give you a description of a positive for each one I list. I will be listing these casinos in no particular order so enjoy.

The Venetian

This hotel is all suites! You will find a beautiful entrance area and stunning murals on the ceilings and walls. The Casino has 2 parts, the Palazzo and the Venetian. If you want to play poker though the only one to do that at is The Venetian. In my humble opinion one of the best Poker Room in Vegas is at the Venetian. I was there for 5 days and only left the poker room to go eat at the Mirage buffet.

The Mirage

The Mirage which is located in a very convenient location in the middle of the strip. If you are staying at the Mirage you are located within walking distance to The Wynne, Ceasers Palace, The Bellagio, Paris and Ballies. So, why is this casino worth a mention on this blog? The Mirage has probably one of the best buffets in Vegas. When I go to Vegas I eat here every time. You have food from all over the world whether you want Chinese or Italian you can get it. Also the price, compared to other hotels in its class the price is cheap and the food is great!

If you are going to The Mirage I would live to hear how your time was because I haven’t stayed there yet so I can’t say how the rooms are. One time I was able to check out the pool area because I was staying at The Bellagio and they allowed me to go to their pool. As for the gambling the poker room use to be booming back in the day but now I thought it was pretty slow. The last time I went they only had one table of 2-5NL and maybe a couple 1-2NL. That is significantly less than what it was a decade ago when I played 20-40 limit there and the room was packed.

The Bellagio

What can I say about The Bellagio? I have stayed here several times now and the rooms have a beautiful view of there iconic fountains. I haven’t stayed in any rooms yet that haven’t had a view so Im not sure if they are any different. The rooms are guarded by security which is awesome because only hotel guests can get up to the rooms. As for the inside of the rooms, if you love marble than its for you. I have also seen the suits and they are very very nice. I went to a wedding there about a decade ago and it was absolutely amazing.

Gambling at the Bellagio? I have played poker there and it is the hotel with the iconic Bobby’s Room so you will see people like Jennifer Tilley, Jackie Chan, Doyle Brunson and others. All in all put your name on the waiting list early and don’t worry about what type of game you want to play because they have it. The last time I was their I witnessed a pretty nice Chinese Poker game at 8:00 a.m.

I could go on and on about Vegas and probably will do more posts because I haven’t even touched the Freemont Street experience in old Vegas or even any of the newer casinos on the strip. I have been to Vegas many times and I will cover these topics and hotels much more in coming blogs! I hope you enjoyed this one though.

    I think hold em is pretty much on the downswing…..they need to bring back stud and all the other games and they will get their folks back.

    • I somewhat think so too. I think No Limit Holdem really killed it. I like Limit Holdem myself but I would also never shy away from a game of Pot Limit Omaha!

  2. I was in Las Vegas only 2 years ago, but for the life of me, I can’t remember which casinos I visited! By the end of the trip, they all kind of blended together haha. The Bellagio fountains were pretty memorable though.

  3. Ah Vegas, you see it in movies, you see it in travel blogs. How I would love to see it in the flesh. It always looks like one big party. Soon hopefully, soon.

    I love Vegas & checking out all the hotels – I love that they all have so much entertainment & things to see & do, Vegas hotels are way more than a place to sleep. I got a great deal at the MGM and saw Cirque du Soleil “Ka” & “David Copperfield”, it was such a blast!

  8. I’m not a gambler but am so drawn to the casinos in Vegas. Love the Bellagio!
