Dublin Ranked ‘Fifth Las Vegas Of Europe’

By Dave Simpson

A new analysis by Finnish casino review site Bonusetu has revealed which European cities best replicate the Las Vegas, with Dublin ranking as number five.

Details

Bonusetu noted that Dublin is ranked third in terms of casinos per capita of these European cities, with almost two for every 100,000 residents. As well as this, strong rankings for nightlife and five-star hotels allow the Irish capital into the top five on the list.

A spokesperson from Bonusetu commented, “Vegas is really the dream destination for avid gamblers, but it is not accessible to everyone, being an expensive place to travel to. This data can point casino lovers toward cities that can fulfil their lust for that high life within Europe.
