Las Vegas, seen as the world’s casino capital is home to over 31 casinos alone along its infamous strip. These casinos compete to be the biggest and the best and over time more rivals are looking to entice gamblers with more extreme and wacky concepts.

We have chosen the world’s most weird and wonderful casinos ready for you to add to your bucket list.

1Let’s start small with the world’s smallest casino, the Grosvenor taxi was designed by Jo Blundell – sales and marketing director at Grosvenor Casinos.

This mini casino holds a gambling table, a bar and even some online casino gaming facilities.  Jo Blundell previously explained: “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of what we believe to be the world’s smallest travelling casino”. 

  1. Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

1Built in 2010, Marina Bay Sands was one of the first casinos to be built in Singapore. The 15,000 sq metre casino is built to look like a deck of cards and is spread over 4 levels holding 600 tables and 1,500 slot machines. It is also home to one of the world’s largest Swarvoski crystal chandeliers.
