Las Vegas is a city which sprouted out of hot sand, becoming one of the best and most recognizable destinations to visit around the entire world. An interesting fact about this city, which is usually not something everyone knows, is that the Las Vegas Strip, the street which is recognizable by many as being a part of Las Vegas is not located in the city at all! Also, the street, which is home to Bellagio, MGM Grand, Caesar’s Palace etc. is also not entirely part of the Las Vegas city, geographically speaking. The famous sign that says, “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas”, basically the symbol of the city, found its place at the entrance to a place known as Paradise. The Las Vegas Strip stretches out some 7 kilometers through Paradise and Winchester, not being a part of Las Vegas throughout the entire stretch. This is all because of taxes and casinos as they were built in the 1950s as the taxes were significantly lower when built in the outskirts of the city center.
It’s worth mentioning that many casinos are branching into the online business as technology becomes more accessible and the same slots you might play on the game floor in Vegas are available on the Internet. Guts casino accepts Canadian players for example, but nothing stops players from other countries to spend their money there as well, which is one of the benefits of online casinos.
