The Ponte 16 is a world-class integrated casino and entertainment resort built along the Inner Harbor of Macao, in the older part of the city.

America’s biggest casino isn’t on the Las Vegas Strip or Atlantic City Boardwalk. Opened in 1986 in western Connecticut, Foxwoods is a complex of six casinos with 17 different types of table games, including 100 for poker. Managed by the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Tribe, Foxwoods benefits from its location within driving distance of New York and Boston. In addition to its casino, the resort has one of the world’s largest bingo halls.
2. City of Dreams Resort, Macao, China

Square feet: 420,000

Hotel rooms: 1,400
Web site:
Recently opened City of Dreams is a $2.1 billion gamble by Melco Crown Entertainment’s Lawrence Ho and Australian billionaire James Packer. The resort, located across the street from the Venetian on the Cotai Strip, faces tough odds as Macao gaming revenues have been hit hard by the global economic crisis.
1. The Venetian Macao, Macao, China

Square feet: 546,000
Gaming machines: 3,000
Table and poker games: 870
Restaurants and bars: 24

The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel has become one of the biggest landmarks for gamblers throughout Asia. Controlled by Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands (LVS), the Venetian was the first giant casino to open on Macao’s Cotai Strip, an area of reclaimed land offshore from downtown Macao. A stroll around the resort gives you a glance of luxury—and a somewhat weird combination of facilities, attractions, and amenities such as Cirque du Soleil’s Zaia show.
