Craps play across the globe

Casinos around the world offer their patrons the opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of the dice game known as Craps, however the entire experience is built not only upon the game itself, but also where you choose to play it.

There are a number of gambling Mecca’s across the globe, but here we have selected the most popular destinations and taken a look at what you can expect when visiting these places.

Las Vegas

With around 40 million visitors each year and tens of billions of dollars spent on gaming alone, there is little dispute that the fabulous Las Vegas Nevada is one of the most exciting destinations in the world to visit. The number of famous casinos within this metropolis stretch for miles in an ever widening expanse and each year it seems that each group goes the extra mile in an attempt to top the rest. This competition has lead to some of the most fantastic experiential vacations one could imagine and many benefits are passed along to casino players in attempt to attract and hold their attention.

When it comes to playing our favourite dice game though, there are a few places that really stand out from the crowds:

And if you feel like playing something other than craps, many good alternatives are available in every casino both Downtown or on the Strip.

Atlantic City

Atlantic City is another of the US's top gambling destinations that has developed into a thriving entertainment centre featuring Casinos, World-class entertainment, night life and fine dining on the ocean's edge. What more could you ask for?

Well, if you’re a craps enthusiast, probably "where is the best place to play in town?" and we’ve got the answers for you right here:

Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo is an exclusive part of the principality of Monaco that is steeped in wealth, history and sophistication. The first casino was built in the mid nineteenth century by Prince Charles III of Monaco and today it is one of Europe’s most elite gambling destinations. Unlike Las Vegas and Atlantic City, Monte Carlo features only a handful of casinos, but what it lacks in quantity is definitely made up for in quality.

While Craps is not one of the most popular games in Monte Carlo (it is perceived as an “American” game) there are still some options if you are visiting, although it is definitely not a destination to frequent if you are only looking to play this dice game.

Macau

Set against the beautiful landscape of the city, the gaudy casinos of Macau create a magnificent contrast that inspires the admiration of even the most seasoned casino veteran. The city, which has experienced phenomenal growth in its casino industry over the past few years has become the new attraction for casino players and tourists alike.

Craps is a relatively new game for Macau, in fact it only saw the first game in 2007 at Casino Lisboa and so the casino staff are still getting accustomed to it and you'll have to be patient at some places and just enjoy the slower pace of the game. That said, here’s where to go depending on what you are looking for:

And if you are not fortunate to be in any of the above mentioned locations, don't worry, you can still play your favourite game at an online casino, all you need is a PC and an internet connection. You can learn more about playing land based vs online craps here.
