The palatial MGM Grand is a self-contained vacation; you can spend a week within its walls and still not enjoy everything this larger-than-life resort has to offer. The Grand's mega-casino boasts roulette, war, craps, blackjack, more than 2500 poker and slot machines, and a non-smoking poker room. If you'd rather bet on sports or ponies, the MGM Grand offers a posh booking space. The hotel itself is a regal resort complex, with multiple pools, bars, and restaurants along with magnificent rooms. Of all of the amazing choices on the Las Vegas Strip, the MGM Grand might be one of the the best.

The beautifully decorated, spacious casino at Caesar's Palace is a perennial favorite among serious gamblers. Multiple floors of games, machines, and tables means you'll never feel cramped and can always find some action. The space echoes the glamour and charm of a bygone era, when it was a favorite of stars like Humphrey Bogart and Frank Sinatra. Today, the Colosseum theater hosts modern stars like Rod Stewart and Celine Dion, and the Forum Shops offer some of the hottest shopping on the Strip.

More than 60 tables of blackjack, baccarat, poker, roulette and craps, along with 3,000 poker and slot machines, greet you in the earthy, wood-trimmed Red Rock Casino. Racing and sports fans will love the huge video wall, and a high-limit option is available for high-stakes gamblers. Non-smokers will appreciate the smoke-free poker and bingo areas. The hotel is reasonably priced, with a sparkling pool, restaurants, movie theaters and a brand new shopping plaza next door.

The Bellagio has been synonymous with over-the-top Vegas luxury since the resort opened in 1998. The dancing fountains in front of the building are a Vegas icon. Indoors, the hotel continues to cause jaws to drop, with its seasonal Conservatory and Botanical Garden display, and no fewer than five swimming pools. Everything from the restaurants to the poker room is first-class and utterly extravagant, and the casino looks like a Baroque palace.

The newest hotel in downtown Vegas is giving the established hot spots a run for their money. The Grand is decked out in a modern, edgy design that will appeal to young creatives and counterculture types who aren't into the usual Vegas old-school opulence but still want luxury. The industrial-chic casino space is massive, with 30 gaming tables, 600 slot machines, and a sports booking area, as well as a room for baccarat and Pai Gow poker.
Drew Carey once said, "Everything and anything you want to do, you can do in Las Vegas." These hotels let you make a date with Lady Luck and live like a high roller.
If live casinos are not your thing, then you can play online casino games and kindle your gambling spirit.
