The experts at Planet7oz.org say that casinos can give us great clues about the lifestyle of a city or area. So, here is a selection of the largest and most modern casinos in the world.
Today there are casinos for all tastes: Las Vegas is still the mecca of gambling but some Chinese cities, such as Macau, are growing a lot in this regard to become the city that has the largest casinos in the world.
Recently, Madrid has reached an agreement to carry out an impressive complex of casinos and hotels on the outskirts of the city.
