by on June 23, 2014

There is of course a world famed gambling strip in Nevada called the Las Vegas Strip.   On it there are lots of different casinos all with different themes – Venice, Paris, Egyptian and one based on a circus.  However this year one casino company are expecting to hit the jackpot by importing a small bit of England.

It’s part of a GBP 500 million scheme to -themed casino at the gaming hotspot.  It kind of makes sense, location themed casinos do very well in America, for whom international travel is often an expensive luxury due to distances.  But when they can take a trip on a gondola down a Venetian canal on their vacation in Vegas, it adds another dimension.  British culture is often very popular with Americans, and additionally many thousands of British travel to Vegas every year.

Ye Olde England Casino will even feature fish and chips, steak and kidney pudding and a menu offering pie and mash. Work is scheduled to begin later this season. Around 450,000 British tourists are expected to see with the US city.

“Everyone adores your Royal Family and the courteous character of individuals, so this is a job that is way late. Many other nationalities happen to be signified here.”

Other motif resorts are enormous tourist attractions, including The Paris and The Venetian.

“This is going to be a wonderful addition when it all comes together.”
