If you hear Lady Luck calling your name, you might want to consider taking a trip around the world to visit an out of the box casino or two. There are plenty of unusual, or unique, casinos available for your gaming pleasure. With the global gambling market set to reach a worldwide gross yield of 495 billion USD by 2019, these casinos aren’t going away anytime soon, so you have time to take advantage of the vast variety of casinos available around the world. There are a few which rise above the others in uniqueness, and don’t forget about knowing the do’s and don’ts of fashionable apparel needed.
The Desert Cave Hotel in Coober Pedy, Australia
The small mining town of Coober Pedy may not seem like a logical choice when wanting to gamble. This hotel and casino is the opposite of the opulence associated with most casinos, but it’s unique because it’s built almost entirely underground. You have the option of staying upstairs instead of underground, but with the extreme temperatures sometimes reaching 120 degrees Fahrenheit, there are at least 19 suites available below ground. In addition to the underground hotel suites, you will also find the casino there as well, in addition to the world’s only underground bar. You can catch a round of golf on a grassless golf course, or take the time to experience the city’s history of opal mining which led to the underground structures.
North Cadbury Court in Yeovil, United Kingdom
This is a 16th-century house turned into a stunning venue for weddings, corporate events, holidays and other events. It sits on 1,500 acres and boasts 25 bedrooms, a large dining hall, ballroom, various ‘break-out’ rooms, lawn tennis courts, indoor swimming pool and spa. What makes this location unique enough to be included on this list, is the casino was built in the basement of the home. The owner took part of the wine cellar and transformed it into a cozy space for about 30 people to fit into. It offers blackjack and roulette games, and a poker room for your enjoyment.
Bally’s Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada
If you’re looking for a casino for Halloween, Bally’s is the place for you. It originally opened in 1973, but then in 1980 tragedy struck when a fire killed 87 people and injured hundreds more. After being sold to Bally’s and re-opening, there were reports from guests of a smell of acrid smoke in corridors and hotel rooms. Also in the main casino room, a strange woman was often seen playing slot machines with her dress on fire. There have been reports of a child running down halls looking for his parents. If you’re brave enough to stay, try some of its 65 table games and 1,250 slot machines.
With all the adventures offered at locations, your choice of outfit for the casino itself can be confusing at times. Las Vegas and Atlantic City might have not so strict rules about how to dress at certain times of the day, but it doesn’t mean rules are non-existent. Especially if you want to get into more private rooms and casino floors to hob-nob with the elite. Business casual is usually the way to go during the day into the late afternoon, but in the evening go in looking dazzling and sophisticated, like the high roller you want to be. Choose something you’ll be comfortable gambling in, and if you’re still in doubt, always call ahead to find out which dress code the casino prefers.
These locations should be put on your to-do list for a world road trip. They’re also a great location for a once in a lifetime party or honeymoon trip. So grab your passport, pack the right clothes, and start your world casino hopping adventure.
