Online Casinos - Worldwide casinos

Earth

In modern English a casino is a facility that houses and accommodates certain types of gambling activities. Casinos are most commonly built near or combined with hotels, restaurants, retail shopping, cruise ships and other tourist attractions. Some casinos are known for hosting live entertainment events, such as stand-up comedy, concerts, and sporting events. Use in the past, and modern use in other countries, does not necessarily involve gambling.
