Bellagio

The Bellagio is at heart just as much of a resort as a casino nowadays, but that’s a description true to all the grand old greats still found on the Strip. That being said the casino facilities are still pretty much second to none. Home to a dedicated poker room – often referred to as ‘The Office’ by serious ad professional players thanks to very high table limits, it plays host to numerous tournaments throughout the year.

Rio All Star Hotel & Casino

Every gambler knows that Vegas casinos always try to present themselves in a truly distinctive manner, and the Rio All Star most certainly manages this. Famed for having superb conference facilities as well as an enormous casino area and hotel, it’s the Rio flair in the design that makes this one of the most popular on the Strip. Oh, and of course the handy 50 000 bottles of fine wine held with an enormous specialist wine cellar! A must see for anyone taking a visit.
