Where Are The Largest Casinos In Las Vegas

If you are looking for large casinos, Las Vegas has them. Gambling is big business in Las Vegas and you can bet with the need for gaming dollars comes the need for very large casinos and the strip has its fair share. Although it should be noted that the largest casino in Las Vegas is not even on Las Vegas blvd.,  that honor goes to the Sunset Station Hotel & Casino way off the strip.

A few more caveats: Wynn/Encore are separate hotels as are Venetian /Palazzo, they are often considered one casino but since they are in different buildings and connected by long walkways for this list they are separated.  These numbers tend to change based on configurations within the casino and addition or subtractions to resort offerings. Monte Carlo Hotel is currently undergoing a renovation and new numbers for the rebranded hotel are not complete.
