Las Vegas, Nevada
You had to see that one coming. Vegas is notorious for its casinos and poker tables. Vegas is still by far the best destination to go for a poker game or any other type of casino activity. Vegas is also host to the biggest poker tournament in the world, the World Series of Poker Main Event. Pro poker players have won big at these tournaments. If you want an epic poker experience, there is no better way than the Vegas way.
Second on our list is Melbourne. The city down-under is host to the biggest casino in the southern hemisphere. The Crown Casino offers not only great poker tables, but also beaches, pools, beautiful people, and lots of ways to spend your money and win some money. The Aussie Millions is one of the big poker tournaments held every year and this takes place at the Crown Casino. When you visit Melbourne for a poker game or five you will also be treated to so much more.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
If you have the cash to burn and are ready to spend, you will enjoy Monte Carlo. If you’re on a budget, you may want to steer past. Monte Carlo is an expensive city but it makes up for it in luxury and beauty. Host to the EPT Grand Final tournament, Monte Carlo is a great poker destination. You can play the tables, watch the tournaments, or just enjoy all the beautiful cliffsides and other scenery. There is plenty to do if you’re ready to splurge.
Paradise Island, Bahamas
The Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island is the next hot spot on our list. It is one of the most beautiful places that you will ever visit. If you want to play poker then it is an added bonus.
