Pretty much every industry out there has struggled quite considerably with the economic crisis that came to surface in 2008 and that really shook the markets. The casinos industry was no exception to that rule of thumb, even though they already seem to be getting back to their feet since 2012, at least according to a report published by the “American Gambling Association” near the end of 2013 and which accounted for data about the “Casino Market & Revenue Statistics bulletin”.

The economic crisis has undoubtedly played a big role in a notorious slowdown within the casinos industry, but at the same time, it’s also true that the proliferation of online gambling alternatives  certainly hasn’t helped much to keep the activity levels as high as they used to be several years ago. Even in countries where the regulation and licensing for gambling activities seems to be favorable to the industry, a live UK casino running on a website for example, still benefits from several internet gaming laws unlike the more traditional physical casinos.

Nevertheless and in one way or another, most of the casinos established across the World seem to have survived the crisis and already adapted to the new challenges that lie ahead. In this article, we’ll go through a shortlist of the 5 largest physical casinos in the World in 2014, outlining a few key points for each one of them.

Top 5 largest casinos in the World – 2014

#1 – The Venetian Macao
Country: Macau, China
Size: 546.000 square feet
Table and poker games: 870
Gaming machines: +3.000

Macau can probably be proud of many things accomplished throughout their history and having the largest casino in the World in their lands has got to be on that list. The Venetian Macao has the particularity of being totally themed on Italy’s beautiful Venice and it’s naturally one of the most luxurious casinos ever built.

#2 – City of Dreams Casino
Country: Macau, China
Size: 420.000 square feet
Table and poker games: 520
Gaming machines: +1.300

The second largest casino in the World is also located in Macau. Unlike its main competitor, the City of Dreams Casino tries to be a better fit for younger audiences, starting with the entire decoration across its facilities to the name given to each room and division inside the casino.

#3 – Foxwoods Resort Casino
Country: Connecticut, United States
Size: 340.000 square feet
Table and poker games: 400
Gaming machines: +7.000

The largest casino in the World outside Macau belongs to the United States. It has roughly 7.000 slot machines, which impressively beats the Venetian Macao’s number by more than doubling it.

#4 – Casino Porte
Country: Macau, China
Size: 270.000 square feet
Table and poker games: 150
Gaming machines: +300

Despite its size, the Casino Porte in Macau doesn’t really offer as many gaming machines and poker games as the previous 3 casinos on the list. It’s oriented to a slightly different audience, as it privileges the architectural aspect over everything else.

#5 – Tusk Rio Casino Resort
Country: Klerksdorp, South Africa
Size: 266.000 square feet
Table and poker games: 12
Gaming machines: +250

Similarly to the Casino Porte in Macao, the Tusk Rio Casino Resort is much more than a gambling space. It’s inspired on Brazil’s Carnival from Rio de Janeiro and it’s definitely worth the visit if you ever travel to South Africa.
