Las Vegas is clearly the most famous gambling destination of the world. Venice is the oldest. Monaco is the most prestigious. And Macau has the largest casino resort in the world.
For the time being, at least, because there are several casino resorts planned to be opened on Australian soil that will most likely make Macau's gambling destinations pale in envy.
Australians love to gamble - that's a fact that makes the country a very attractive destination for many major international gambling companies, both online and in real life.
Massive players (no pun intended) of the gambling business have set foot Down Under: William Hill, Betfair, Bet365, and Paddy Power are all present on its sports betting market.
Its online casino market is much more restricted, though, due to the controversial laws the country enforces.
Aussie pokie fans can still play their favorite games in their favorite way at the Royal Vegas, the preferred online gambling venue Down Under.
The Royal Vegas has an amazing collection of games available for desktop and mobile play, taking into account all the best security and privacy standards you can think of.
Besides, it has tons of specials and promotions for its players - the Royal Vegas monthly promotions are talk of the trade. Still, its offers will most likely pale besides what the future has in store for Aussie gamblers - if all goes as planned, of course.
The Aquis Great Barrier Reef Resort
Hong Kong billionaire Tony Fung is the man behind one of the most ambitious casino resort project Australia has ever seen.
The businessman has committed the amount of $8.15 billion to its cause, and what he has planned is, simply put, amazing.
The initial plans of the resort, published by various media outlets, depict a building fit into a science fiction movie, with massive domes, curved buildings, bridges and marinas - in short, amazing.
And the quality of the services planned to be offered by the resorts is up to its amazing looks: a six-star hotel with 7,500 rooms, a convention center, two theaters with 2,500 seats each, a stadium, an aquarium, and all the necessary shops and amenities.
The building is set to be the "biggest structure of the Northern hemisphere", news.com.au reported back in 2014.
The construction of the resort is set to start early in 2017, but without the proposed casino - at least for the time being. According to the Daily Mail, the regulatory turmoil surrounding the gambling part of the proposed operation would have set back the development of the project too much, so it was set aside until further notice. Still, it will most likely resurface in the future.
The Aquis Great Barrier Reef Resort is expected to attract over 1 million guests each year, and employ up to 20,000 people.
