For many travelers across the US, the casino environment is a relaxing stay for those enjoying nights away from the day-to-day grind. 

The casino scene can be misinterpreted for solely gambling purposes when in fact there is much more to visiting these hot spots. 

Using Instagram hashtags and TripAdvisor reviews, OLBG decided to investigate the most popular casinos based on those who have visited the various resorts across the US. These are land-based casinos rather than online casino sites.

The Top 5

We start at the very top and work through Casino by Casino in the top 10, These are the best 5 according the collected data

1. The Tulalip Resort Casino in Washington

The Tulalip Resort Casino in Washington tops the ratings with a huge 65.90% excellent rating from those leaving reviews on TripAdvisor.

1030 of the 1563 reviews were of the highest rating in total, with just 4.35% of users not enjoying their stay.

The casino has a 12-story hotel with seven different restaurants to choose from as well as an outdoor pool, spa and of course a large gaming space for those wanting to chance their arm on the blackjack tables. 

2. Thunder Valley Casino Resort in California

Narrowly missing out on the top spot for the most popular casino is the Thunder Valley Casino Resort in California with an excellent rating of 64.90% on TripAdvisor.

Around 160 people can use their gaming tables at full capacity, but the attraction to the resort comes from the quiet surroundings and relaxing environment of the neighboring hotel.

Visitors have mainly commented on how accommodating the staff were to specific needs from the reviews of the casino.

3. & 4. The Venetian and Bellagio Hotel and Casino

Vegas Venues Rank 3rd and 4th

Two Las Vegas based casinos take the third and fourth spot respectively with The Venetian and Bellagio Hotel and Casino split by under 1% from each other.

Two Las Vegas based casinos take the third and fourth spot respectively with The Venetian and Bellagio Hotel and Casino split by under 1% from each other.

Dubbed as the ‘city that never sleeps’ Las Vegas is the place to be for a trip away if you combine the Instagram hashtags on our casino index, over 150,000 have posted about their trip in the past year.

The Bellagio is arguably one of the most well-known casinos in the US, so standards will be high for visitors going which can make criticism easier to come by.

It sits fourth on the list but does have the fourth highest ‘terrible’ rating from the Trip Advisor reviews.

However, that is just a small minority when you consider 7.99% of those who left a review didn’t enjoy their stay.

5. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

Making up the top five is the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa with an excellent rating of 56.00% and just a short distance away from the centre of Atlantic City.

If you’re a fan of a steakhouse, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is located near a variety of options which can be both economical and expensive depending on your taste.

Borgata also have an online casino available should you not be able to make it over to AC

The Bottom Half

The following 5 might be in the bottom half of this research but remain in the top ten casinos in the US

6. Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort

Going into the bottom half of the top 10, we find the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort which represents Michigan casinos.

One of the biggest entertainment venues in Mid-Michigan, the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort offers acts all year round including a variety of comedians and musicians.

For combat fighting fans, UFC 275 will be in town on June 11th, 2022, showing the variety of entertainment events the casino has to offer.

7. Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino based in Hollywood

In seventh place, we have the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino based in Hollywood whose excellent rating stays just above the 50% mark.

Known for its vibrant and busy atmosphere, one feature that separates the casino from the rest is the daily guitar light show they display which certainly isn’t something to be missed if you’re visiting.

8. Caesars Casino in Atlantic City

Also making it into the top 10 is the famous Caesars Casino in Atlantic City.

The hotel rooms have been updated and upgraded with visitors mainly enjoying their experience, Gordon Ramsay also has one of his restaurants nearby if you want to dine in style.

9. & 10. Mandalay Bay Casino and Foxwoods Casino

Completing the top 10 are the Mandalay Bay casino and Foxwoods Casino which are narrowly separated by 0.31%.

Mandalay Bay has the famous Wolfgang Puck restaurant Lupo nearby and their own Mandalay Bay Beach for visitors who want that holiday experience.

Foxwoods Casino has more of a family-friendly vibe with a nearby water park and shopping center as well as a variety of dining options which shows the variety this casino has.

*OLBG looked at over 58,000 reviews on TripAdvisor and over 200,000 Instagram hashtags when putting this top 10 together.
