The Casino – The Place For Gambling Enthusiasts


The Casino is a world-class gambling establishment that combines the latest technology with traditional table games and spectacular entertainment. Its location on the Cotai Strip makes it an especially attractive destination for gamblers from all over Asia and beyond.

Gambling is a popular pastime in almost every culture. The precise origin is unknown, but it is believed to predate recorded history. Primitive protodice and carved knuckle bones have been found at archaeological sites, but the modern casino as a place where patrons can find a variety of ways to gamble under one roof did not develop until the 16th century. During that time, Italian aristocrats would hold private parties at places called ridotti to satisfy their gambling cravings.

Today, casinos earn the majority of their money from slot machines. They are simple to operate: the patron inserts money, pulls a lever or pushes a button and watches as varying bands of colored shapes roll past on reels (actual physical or a video representation). When the pattern matches the player’s selection, they win a predetermined amount of money. There is no skill involved in these machines, so the house has a built-in advantage.

Because of this mathematical assurance of profit, casinos are able to offer their patrons free gifts or inducements (known as comps) to keep them playing. These include hotel rooms, restaurant meals, tickets to shows and limo service. For the big bettors, the casino will even offer them airline tickets and a stay at a luxury resort.
