by Richard Zaher / Nov 15, 2019

For residents of the United States, there are tonnes of locations rich in casinos and gambling options. Reno. Atlantic City. And the granddaddy of them all, Las Vegas.

But what if you want to maximize your private jet charter to check out an international casino? After all, if you have the means, why not experience a new adventure outside of the USA?

Here are our top five international cities if you’re looking to gamble:

London, England

Outwardly, the British might be all polite manners, stiff upper lips and quaint cups of tea. But in reality, they love a bet as much as the next nation. And London is the place to do it.

If you’re flying from New York to London, a Legacy 650 will cost you around $65,000 one way and $105,000 round trip with two overnights. From Paris to London, a Citation CJ2 will cost around $8,500 one way and $13,500 round trip with one overnight.

There are all sorts of casinos for both high and low stakes players. And there are casinos which specialize in certain games, such as poker. For example, Hippodrome Casino has a partnership with the world’s largest online poker room which means it regularly hosts tournaments with huge guarantees. Plus, it’s located right in the middle of Leicester Square.

Here are a few of our favorite casinos in London:

  • Hippodrome Casino
  • Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City
  • Ritz Club
  • 50 St James
  • Crockfords Club
  • Maxims Club Casino

Macau, China

Nicknamed ‘the Vegas of the East’, Macau is a world-famous gambling region packed with 38 different casinos. It has developed a reputation for attracting wealthy businessmen, which makes it an appealing prospect for high rollers looking for some fun.

A charter flight from Hong Kong to Macau on a Challenger 300 is around $14,500 while a round trip flight with one overnight will be $18,600.

If you’re wondering why casinos are legal in Macau but not the rest of China, the answer is that it’s a special administration region – much like Hong Kong. If you want to head to the area around China, there really is a no better choice.

Not sure where to start? Here are some of the best casinos in Macau:

  • The Venetian Macao
  • Casino Lisboa
  • City of Dreams
  • Casino Oceanus
  • Galaxy Grand Mega Resort, Cotai

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Monte Carlo is an area we get asked about a lot at Paramount Business Jets. A luxurious destination known for famous clientele and wealthy products, it’s a logical choice for anybody looking to try a high-class casino in a country they may well be familiar with.

A private jet flight from Geneva to Monte Carlo on a Citation M2 is around $6,800 while a round trip flight with one overnight is around $8,200.

Remember the scene in the James Bond film Goldeneye where 007 indulges in a gripping game of high stakes baccarat? That all unraveled at the gorgeous Casino Monte-Carlo. And now you can experience it first-hand.

If you can pry yourself away from the majestic views of crystal clear waters, awe-inspiring yachts and a tantalizing selection of exemplary restaurants, here are some of the top casinos in Monte Carlo:

  • Casino Monte-Carlo
  • Casino Café de Paris
  • Sun Casino

Who says bigger always means better?

Singapore is a relative newcomer to the world of gambling. But, in just a few short years, the destination has already become a hit with private jet casino enthusiasts.

An on-demand private jet from Bangkok to Singapore on a Challenger 850 is around $32,600 for a one way and $41,800 for a round trip with one overnight.

Why? Well, it’s mostly due to the remarkable Marina Bay Sands. The luxury property boasts 2,500+ rooms, multiple nightclubs, and a jaw-dropping rooftop infinity pool. It’s incredibly impressive, as it should be – the venue has been labeled the most expensive standalone casino at a cost of $8 billion. This alone is worth the trip.

There are only two casinos in Marina Bay:

  • Marina Bay Sands
  • Resorts World Sentosa

San Jose, Costa Rica

Its alluring blend of an exotic climate and a time-honored reputation as a safe spot for tourists makes Costa Rica a unique prospect. Plus, its close proximity to the USA means your flight won’t break the bank – all the more to spend at the tables, then.

A chartered flight from Miami to San Jose is around $20,000 for a one way flight on a Hawker 800XP and $26,450 for a round trip with one overnight.
