Casinos are gambling establishments offering various gaming machines. There may also be restaurants and bars, hotels and other amenities for visitors to enjoy. Casinos are heavily regulated to ensure that everyone plays according to the rules – though cheaters do exist, most people attend for entertainment purposes and have fun at casinos.
Atlanta and Georgia currently lack casinos; although there has been discussion about introducing a voter referendum that would legalize some form of casino gaming in Georgia, anyone looking for gambling must either book a casino cruise trip or drive outside their state to do so.
The nearest casino to Atlanta is the Cherokee Valley River Casino in Murphy, North Carolina – approximately 122 miles away and taking approximately two to 2.5 hours by car to reach. Boasting over 100 table games and several hundred slot machines, this large Cherokee casino serves Atlanta visitors well.
Mountaineer Casino Resort in West Virginia provides another great escape, located about two hours away from Twin Cities. Offering hotel, buffet and games – plus its reputation as “family friendly” casino – Mountaineer is ideal for anyone wanting a break from downtown life.
No need to travel all the way to Las Vegas if you want to try your luck at slots. In fact, many options in the Midwest exist such as Grand Casino Mille Lacs near Duluth – offering thousands of slot machines as well as Morton’s Steakhouse, an indoor resort pool with whirlpool, outdoor patio seating area, marketplace, fitness center, luxury suites and much more!
People may be taken aback to discover that Orlando doesn’t feature any casinos. With such an abundant population of tourists and hotels, it seems odd that no gambling establishment exists within this vibrant tourist destination. Luckily, horse race tracks, off-track betting venues and poker rooms exist instead – offering visitors plenty of gambling alternatives.
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa is the closest casino to Orlando, located approximately 88 miles away and approximately an hour’s drive away. There are also two casino cruise ships which sail out into international waters beyond US law and feature more games, such as slots and blackjack – these ships also provide live shows and entertainment as an added benefit if players become frustrated at the tables!
