Las Vegas's Most Popular Casinos
Courtesy of Caesars Palace
In keeping with its opulent reputation, Caesars claims to have been the site of more million-dollar plus slot machine jackpots than any casino in the world. In general, gaming is geared toward high rollers: two poker rooms get a lot of action (one for cash play, the other exclusively for tournaments); and sports gamers love the sports book, where most of the seats have tables with TVs. Qua Spa remains mostly unsurpassed, and the Forum Shops at Caesars are always adding something new under that ceiling that mimics the changes in real daylight. Then, there’s the Colosseum, which hosts entertainers like Celine Dion, and, coming in December 2012, Shania Twain.
The Buzz: Rarely does a buffet make major news on the Strip, but the new Bacchanal buffet lives up to its name, with more than 500 dishes spanning the world. Insider tip: check into the 180-room boutique Nobu Hotel when it opens in early 2013 (taking reservations as of Oct. 1, 2012) for your only chance to order Nobu in-room.
