Top 100 Best High-End Casinos / Hotel Casino Resorts

Casino News, Reviews & Resources (30+) Top 100 Best Casinos / Hotel Casino Resorts

    "A dollar won is twice as sweet as a dollar earned." - Paul Newman.

    "The best bet you get is an even break." - Franklin Pierce Adams.

    "Good luck needs no explanation." - Shirley Temple Black.

    "I have no lucky numbers. I only bet on even chances, or as near them as I can get." - James Bond on roulette gambling, Casino Royale (1953), chapter 10, by Ian Fleming.

    "He liked it that everything was one's own fault. There was only oneself to praise or blame. Luck was a servant and not a master. Luck had to be accepted with a shrug or taken advantage of up to the hilt. But it had to be understood and recognized for what it was and not confused with a faulty appreciation of the odds, for, at gambling, the deadly sin is to mistake bad play for bad luck." - James Bond on gambling in Casino Royale (1953), Chapter 7, by Ian Fleming.

    A CASINO is a facility that houses and accommodates certain types of gambling activities. Casinos are most commonly built near or combined with hotels, restaurants, retail shopping, cruise ships and other tourist attractions. Some casinos are known for hosting live entertainment events, such as stand-up comedy, concerts, and sporting events.

    The precise origin of gambling is unknown. The Chinese recorded the first official account of the practice in 2300 B.C., but it is generally believed that activity of gambling, in some way or another, has been seen in almost every society in history. From the Ancient Greeks and Romans to Napoleon's France and Elizabethan England, much of history is filled with stories of entertainment based on the games of chance.

    One of the first known casinos was the Casinò di Venezia, established in Venice Italy around 1638 and is still in operation.

    In American history, early casinos were originally known as saloons. The creation and importance of saloons was greatly influenced by four major cities; New Orleans, St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco. It was in the saloons that travelers could find people to talk to, drink with, and often gamble with. During the early 20th century in America, gambling became outlawed and banned by state legislation and social reformers of the time. However, in 1931, gambling was legalized throughout the state of Nevada, and Las Vegas, spawning America's first legalized casinos. In 1978, New Jersey allowed gambling in Atlantic City, now America's second largest gambling city.

    In most jurisdictions worldwide, gambling is limited to persons over the age of license (18 or 21 years of age in most of the United States and 16 to 21 in most other countries where casinos are permitted).

  • Nicolas 'Nicky the Greek' Zographos & the Greek Syndicate - (c. 1890-1953). While still living in Greece in his early twenties, Zographos discovered his extraordinary gift for playing card games. He had a photographic memory and could remember the order of all 312 cards as they were dealt from six decks. For several years he practiced the best way of playing a hand of Baccarat, without ever placing a bet. Then, in 1919, Zographos and his wife’s uncle, Eli Eliopulo, traveled to France, intent upon using their gambling skills at the gaming tables of Paris. Along the way, the pair had the good fortune to meet up with a professional gambler from Armenia named Zaret Couyoumdjian. Their new contact helped them raise funds needed to grow their wagers, and the three partners were almost immediately successful. It did not take long for another Greek émigré, Anthanase Vagliano, to join the team. He was a shipping magnate who added 50 million francs to the venture and the “Greek Syndicate” was born.
