Las Vegas is one of the most awe-inspiring tourist attractions in the world. The Strip is lined by massive, vast mega-resorts, which are scattered across the city. The majority of Las Vegas hotels have magnificent pool complexes, shopping, eating, and, of course, casinos.
We used information from the Nevada Gaming Commission to compile a list of the city’s top 15 casinos. The rankings we compiled are based on the amount of space allocated to gaming.
Biggest Casinos in Las Vegas
15. Circus Circus – 124,123 Square Feet: Circus Circus’ vast gaming floor, which first opened in 1968, is showing its age. Circus Circus is a popular among families visiting Las Vegas because of its kid-friendly attractions such as Adveturedome, the Midway, and a free circus show.
14. Caesars Palace – 124,181 Square Feet: Caesars Palace, like Circus Circus, has a long history. The casino floor of Caesars Palace, which first opened in 1966, is a labyrinth with a Roman theme that includes one of our favorite sportsbooks in Vegas.
13. Aliante – 125,000 Square Feet: This North Las Vegas casino not only has a huge gaming floor, but according to Nevada Gaming Commission data, the slots in North Las Vegas are likely to be a little looser than those on the Strip. Due to Aliante’s off-the-beaten-path location, table games usually have $5 minimum bets.
12. Palace Station – 126,085 Square Feet: Palace Station is located just off the Strip and is accessible by a free shuttle service that departs from Fashion Show Mall. Palace Station’s gambling floor sparkles after a $192 million refurbishment. Come for a cheap bet and stay for a delicious supper at the renowned Oyster Bar, which is well worth the wait.
11. Venetian/Palazzo – 129,083 Square Feet: The Venetian/Palazzo boasts amazing theming features throughout the resort, in addition to over 1,900 gaming machines and 250 table games. Guests may browse around the Grand Canal Shops, have lunch in St. Mark’s Square, and listen to Gondoliers sing their passengers as they paddle through the property.
10. Orleans – 129,083 Square Feet: The Orleans gaming floor has over 2,600 gaming machines, 35 poker tables, a 60-seat keno area, and more, breaking the top 10 largest casinos in Vegas. Orleans is readily accessible by Uber/Lyft and is located just off the Strip on Tropicana Avenue.
9. South Point – 137,232 Square Feet: Located south of the Las Vegas Strip, the South Point’s expansive gaming floor has over 2,200 slot machines, 60+ table games, and a popular race/sportsbook.
8. Green Valley Ranch – has a total area of 143,890 square feet. GVR is an off-Strip casino with a lavish ambiance, featuring one of the largest gaming floors in Vegas and the full range of games you’d expect. Even better, they’re in the Boulder reporting area, which, according to the Gaming Control Board, has the loosest slots in Vegas.
7. Mandalay Bay – 147,992 Square Feet: Located on the Las Vegas Strip’s south end, Mandalay Bay debuted in 1999 and features 3,209 rooms in addition to a massive casino floor. After you’ve finished playing the slots, stop by the Minus5 Ice Lounge, which is entirely made of ice.
6. Aria – 150,000 Square Feet: Aria is a newer addition to the Strip, having debuted in 2009. It has 1,940 slot machines and 145 table games.
5. Santa Fe Station – is the 5th largest casino in Vegas, with 151,001 square feet, edging out Aria by a single square foot. Despite its remote location, the resort has over 2,400 slot and video poker machines, as well as 39 gaming tables.
4. Bellagio – 156,000 Square Feet: The crown jewel of MGM Resorts’ portfolio debuted in 1998 and cost $1.6 billion to build. We recommend exploring out Bellagio’s free attractions after attacking the city’s fourth largest casino. Both the conservatory and the Bellagio Fountains are sure to wow.
3. MGM Grand – (161,880 sq ft): MGM Grand, which was opened in 1993 as a Wizard of Oz-themed hotel, is a monster. The casino is still one of the largest in Vegas, despite the theming being peeled away over the years.
2. Sunset Station – 163,951 Square Feet: With over 2,100 machines and a complete range of table games, Sunset Station is the second largest casino in Vegas by square footage. Table minimums are usually $5 due to Sunset’s location away from tourist areas, making it a good value offer for anyone trying to stretch their cash.
1. Wynn/Encore – 191,424 square feet: The largest and most lavish casino in Vegas. Encore and Wynn’s combined gaming floors have over 1,800 slot machines and 180 table games. After you’ve tried your luck, have a drink at Parasol Down and take in a free entertainment at Wynn’s Lake of Dreams.
Biggest Casinos in Downtown Las Vegas
2. Golden Nugget – 48,367 Square Feet: Although not the largest in Las Vegas, we’d be negligent if we didn’t mention the downtown area. Golden Nugget is the second-largest casino on Fremont Street, with slightly under 50,000 square feet of gaming space.
1. Circa – 100,152 Square Feet: The newest resort on Fremont Street also has the largest casino, which is unusual in that it is spread across two stories. Circa’s is a must-see site in Las Vegas, since most casinos appear indistinguishable from one another. The restored Vegas Vickie sign and Circa’s three-story sportsbook should be on your “must-see” list.
That’s it, the results are in, and Wynn holds the title of largest casino in Las Vegas by a long shot.
