Las Vegas gambling can be fairly overwhelming if you haven’t experienced it before. Some resorts provide a small understated experience while others are so big and flashy you literally don’t know where to start. So, what can you expect from Aria casino?

It’s fair to say that Aria is one of the biggest casino floors in Las Vegas and its sheer size and mood-lighting make it feel like once you’re in there, you’ll never get out.

Aria’s sleek interior in the midst of high-end restaurants and bars make it a very cool place to see and be seen too. It is definitely one of the glitziest casino floors in Las Vegas.

The Aria is one of the most modern and ‘trendy’ casinos for Las Vegas gambling.

Attracting the younger and more high-end customer, Aria oozes contemporary style with its sleek interior, art installations and exquisite finishing. It’s definitely somewhere you feel like you should dress nice in.

That’s not to say there is a dress code. As with all Sin City casinos anything goes when it comes to dressing for Las Vegas gambling. Aria casino, though, can have a nightclub feel that makes you feel like you should make more of an effort.

Gambling at Aria casino

The Aria casino is sprawling. With almost 2000 slot machines you will not struggle to find something you want to play.

The casino is shaped like a long slightly curved rectangle which is interweaved with exclusive bars and original artwork, with the hotel reception at one side and an inner walkway to Park MGM at the other.

There is plenty of choice when it comes to table games, with all the usual Baccarat, Roulette and Blackjack variations on offer. Don’t expect these to offer low table-minimums though, the Aria is a high-end casino and high-priced table minimums come with that.

For those who enjoy even more high-octane Las Vegas gambling, a high-limit lounge is provided with slots and table games and a separate Baccarat room, all with private lounges.

Aria provides one of a few dedicated Poker rooms left on the Strip with 24 tables and regular tournament play.

Drinks service and sportsbook

As with all Las Vegas gambling, a complimentary drinks service is available to those wagering on the casino floor. From my experience, Aria is one of the hardest places to find a waitress

That is possibly due to the shape and size of the room, but it can vary night-by-night and person-to-person.

There does always seem to be a regular waitress service at the table games though, so it does well to position yourself close to these if you want to get some attention.

If sports is where you prefer to get your Las Vegas gambling fix, then Aria has an decent enough modern sportsbook. You will find it towards the rear of the main casino.

Rewards club

The Aria casino is part of the MGM Rewards programme, so make sure you sign up for that one.

Sister resorts are within easy walking distance too, which is a big positive as you’re likely to visit them often. Tier points can accumulate surprisingly quickly then you do.
