Casino Ponte 16 is a fusion of traditional Portuguese architecture with an Asian twist. This huge casino is located in the centre of Macau, and is the only one beside the inner harbour, right on the water’s edge.

Boasting an astounding 270,000 square feet, there is plenty for players to explore. Interestingly, despite all the space, there is a relatively low amount of slot machines at around 300, as well as 109 gaming tables.

Royal Panda

The Venetian is not only the largest casino in Asia but also in the world, dwarfing the best that even Las Vegas has to offer. Its unbelievable 546,000 square feet is amply stocked with over 3,000 gaming machines and nearly 900 tables. The result is a luxurious gambling mecca that is unrivalled the world over.

To break up the gaming, guests have access to over 24 bars and restaurants, extensive shopping options, and 4 swimming pools. This is one destination that needs more than one visit to fully appreciate.

You’ll find The Venetian in Macau. Gambling there has been legal since the 1850s when the Portuguese government legalised gambling in its colony. Now, Macau has become known worldwide as the “Gambling capital of the world” or “Monte Carlo of the East”.

Final Word

As you can see, players visiting Asia, or those lucky enough to live there have access to some of the finest casinos in the world. With the growth rate in both population and gambling, we can expect to see even bigger extravaganzas in the years to come.
