Greatest American and European Casinos

The largest difference between American and European casinos is that American casinos are normally incorporated in a hotel complex. European casinos are stand alone - they are not part of a hotel complex. They are buildings that are dedicated solely to the business of gambling and do not cater to the casual tourist trade. In a European casino, there is a dedicated atmosphere to gambling. In an American casino, the clients are mixed both gamblers and tourists. Anyways, regardless whether the casino is a European or an American one, there are the leaders in the industry that are worth knowing about them – just because these guys rock.
