Playing casino games at JackpotCity and other similar online casino websites, offers an unrivalled combination of great gaming and convenience. However, there are some land-based casinos which feature such distinctive or unusual architecture that they are well worth checking out if you are taking a trip abroad.

Singapore is relatively new to casino gambling, as the Government there has only recently legalised it – in recognition of the economic benefits. The Marina Sands Bay Casino is one of only two you will find there at the moment, but the three towers that make up the complex would stand out if there were a hundred rivals there. They are designed to look like giant playing cards, which is either an idea so obvious that it’s amazing no casino designer thought of it before – or so mad that the designer of this one should be locked up for his own safety! Nonetheless, it’s eye-catching and totally unique, so you really should sample it.

The Adelaide Casino

This is one of the most notable casinos in Australia, although the actual casino itself is a fairly typical modern design. It is the location, within a part of the old Railway Station that makes it unique and interesting. The exterior of the station holds heritage listed status, in recognition of its architectural merit, and has been preserved intact. You will find the contrastingly modern casino in a part of the station no longer utilised for rail purposes, and you may recognise the station from its use in the movie Gallipoli, which starred Mel Gibson.

The Revel Casino

This is a beautiful example of contemporary casino architecture (and it should be, as it cost $2.4 billion). The curved buildings that go to make up the resort/casino complex all boast mirrored glass exteriors and – with the casino located close to the ocean in Atlantic City – the sea is reflected onto the glass. This lends the outside of the buildings a surreal aspect and, together with the design quality, makes it one of the most appealing casino in America.
