When someone mentions casinos, Vegas immediately comes to mind. In recent time, Macau has put in a bid to take over the title of the world’s gambling capital, and even though it might seem like a two-city battle at the moment to casual observers, that doesn’t mean that the Middle East doesn’t have its place when the topic of great brick-and-mortar casinos comes up. Especially Egypt, the gambling hot spot of this region.
While it’s still fashionable to walk into a real-life casino, get a taste of the lights and glamour and go for a dance with fate, today, more and more people prefer to test their luck and play at an online casino. Online casinos not only offer every game you’ve ever played at its real-life counterpart, they have a selection of slots that will make your head spin!
Plus, they let you have demo rounds to get familiarized with the games before you put down real money. You get all kinds of perks such as free spins, bonuses, and there are loyalty programs that reward you for just playing.
While it might seem like online casinos are taking over, Egypt’s land-based casinos still have a lot to offer. Take a look at the very best brick-and-mortar casinos at the Gift of the Nile below.
