At the time of writing, the world’s biggest casino is not where you might think it is. It’s not in Las Vegas, it’s not in California, it’s not even in North America. Monaco? Still in the wrong continent, actually. We have to go to Asia to find the biggest casino in the world, specifically to the new gambling haven of Macau.
In Macau, we have The Venetian Macao. Now, you’re thinking “The Venetian? Isn’t that in Las Vegas?” Well, yes it is. The Venetian Macao is owned by the same company that owns The Venetian in Las Vegas – the Las Vegas Sands corporation.
It’s on the Cotai Strip in Macau and is modeled on its Las Vegas counterpart. It is also the 4th largest building in the world when it comes to area, measuring in 10.5 million square feet (980,000 square meters).
The Venetian Macao is not simply a casino, it’s actually a holiday resort and boasts 3,000 suites, over 1 million square feet of convention space, another 1.6 million square feet of retail space and 550,000 square feet of casino space. It really is a mammoth building, where the world’s largest casino resides.
So, in the 550,000 square feet of casino space, what is there? Well, it’s divided into four themed areas: Golden Fish, Imperial House, Red Dragon and Phoenix. Inside all these areas, there is a total of 3,400 slot machines and 800 tables. There is also a VIP club for all you high rollers out there called Paiza Club, which has its own private gaming rooms.
