5 Amazing Casinos NOT in Las Vegas

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

When it comes to luxury, there is no place that treats you quite like a casino. From the suites to the high roller rooms to the bars, clubs, restaurants and service, gaming resorts have it down to an art form, helping the elite class truly understand and feel what it means to be high status.

At evoJets, we arrange private jet charters all over the world. Not surprisingly, many of our clients fly private to popular places like Las Vegas, Monaco, the Bahamas and other major gaming resort locations.

If you’re looking for a casino adventure, chances are the first place you’ll look is Las Vegas, Reno, or somewhere in Nevada where casino resorts are both common and well developed. But every once in a while it’s nice to have somewhere else to go in order to get the same experience, but not have to travel to Nevada each time.

Read on to find some of the top luxury casino resorts outside of Nevada around the country – some you’ve heard of before, and others that may be brand new or hidden gems.

  • L’Auberge Casino Resort – Lake Charles, LA

Thunder Valley is located in a city right near Sacramento, and while that may not scream “luxury” right away, Thunder Valley is known to be the size of most Vegas casinos, and the Beaujolais suite is 2140 square feet of comfort for those that really like their space. That suite also comes with a personal sauna.
