Located in Oklahoma WinStar World Casino (formerly known as WinStar Casinos) claims the title of the second biggest casino in the world. With a 519,000-square-foot (48,200 sq m) gaming floor divided into world city-themed zones the casino boasts 7,400 electronic games, 76 table games, 46 table poker rooms, bingo and more.

The world’s fourth-largest casino, the modern and almost futuristic City of Dreams, is again found in Macau. This flashy resort provides players with more than 1,500 machines and 450 gaming tables.

City of Dreams also offers not one, not two, but four hotels for visitors to choose from. If guests want to take a break from the casino, they can visit one of the four spas, shop at high-end boutiques, or take in the various events and art exhibitions hosted at the establishment, such as the iconic House of Dancing Water.

If you’re visiting and are interested in fine dining, you might also like to give the three-Michelin-starred Jade Dragon Chinese restaurant a try. Or indulge your taste buds at Alain Ducasse at Morpheus or Yí on the 21st floor Sky Bridge.

4. Foxwoods, Ledyard, Connecticut, USA (340,000 square feet)

One of the most sizeable entertainment complexes in North America, the resort comprises six casinos, four hotels, and several restaurants, including a Hard Rock Café. The casinos themselves cover an area of 344,000 square-feet which includes over 380 gaming tables and more than 6,300 slot machines.

For many years, Foxwoods was one of the largest casinos in the world, but the opening of various Macau-based casinos pushed it well down the list.

Foxwoods remains the second-largest tribal casino, which means it is located on land that belongs to the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, which makes gambling there a tad bit different.

5. Wynn Macau, Macau, China (273,000 square feet)

We have Ponte 16 Resort Macau at sixth of our top 10 biggest casinos in the world list. Today, the casino floor area is 270,000 sq ft, which is 3,000 sq ft less than that of the Wynn Macau. Aside from its impressive size, this resort is unique because it is located in the heart of a UNESCO heritage site – the Historic Centre of Macao.

You can take a seat at over a hundred game tables such as roulette, baccarat, and blackjack, among others. Players can also test their luck with more than 300 slot machines at the casino. Guests can take advantage of additional amenities like restaurants, spa, fitness, kids centre, gift shop, and quality entertainment.

7. Rio Casino Resort, Klerksdorp, South Africa (266,330 square feet)

Number seven on our list takes us to South Africa. Located in Klerksdorp, a mining town in the North West province, the Rio Casino Resort lays claim to being the largest casino in Africa! Open since 2002, the Rio Casino Resort includes multiple leisure and entertainment venues.

Players at this Rio Carnival-themed resort have access to 274 slot machines, or they can join in on the action at the 12 tables, which are home to a variety of games, including poker and blackjack.

The fun doesn’t end there. Visitors more interested in high-stakes games can visit the super-plush Rio Privé Lounge, which offers blackjack, roulette and 46 of the latest casino slot games.

In between games, people can grab a bite to eat at the Beef Baron Grillhouse, F.L.A.G. Café or visit the Moo Bar. Don’t worry about the name of this local watering hole (whose tagline is “for an udderly good time”) – it offers more than just dairy; the menu includes favorites like sticky wings, tempura-battered hake, pork ribs and other tasty dishes!

8. Sands Macau, Macau, China (229,000 square feet)

We return immediately to Macau to take a look at what Sands Macau has to offer – though if visitors are interested in more than just gambling, they might want to try their luck at another casino. While Sands Macau is undoubtedly a high-end experience, visitors to this location are focused on one thing and one thing only. A reviewer for The Wizard of Macau, a gambling-enthusiast site, describes his visit below:

“The main show at the Sands Macau is definitely gambling; everything else is almost an afterthought. Corners were definitely cut during the planning stage on floor aesthetics and lighting, but what you miss out on there is made up for by the sheer number of games available.”

With more than 1,200 slot machines and 700 tables, we doubt any visitors to Sands Macau would focus on these little flaws for too long. And of course, there are many dining options to choose from, for a different kind of distraction. Restaurants at Sands Macau include Golden Court, Copa Steakhouse, 888 Buffet and Moonlight Noodle House.

9. MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (170,000 square feet)

The original MGM Grand in Las Vegas is 41 years old and still looks like an ultra-modern structure many would consider building today.

Aside from the gaming area there MGM Grand houses 5,044 rooms making it the largest one in U.S. and the third largest (by number of rooms) hotel complex.
