A Single Day Spent Gambling in the World’s Most Opulent Casino

Adelson built this high-end complex at the end of the previous millennium, and the casino is located on the first floor. According to Forbes, he has a fortune in the range of 38 billion dollars, allowing him to join the exclusive club of billionaires. It may appear impossible to build a replica of the Eiffel Tower, an Egyptian pyramid that flashes the most powerful light in the world, or the world’s largest Ferris wheel to attract attention in a city that greets visitors at the airport with slots installed at the arrivals. These three attractions would all have to be located in the city’s airport. Adelson, however, was a success.

After spending his honeymoon in Venice with his wife Miriam in 1991, he attempted to create an entertainment mini-city within the larger show business city that was modeled after the Italian city. The interior was designed with great care and attention to detail. If the walls in cream tones can easily buy our feelings about the building’s magnificence, then the rest of the building is more than just an illusion.

There are canals and gondolas with gondoliers singing in Italian that cross the mega complex of buildings, paintings on the ceiling commemorating the art of Michelangelo and Boticelli, and dozens of traditional food restaurants serving pasta and pizzas – even the host of the television show Bizarre Foods has a restaurant there. You can join me for a “cappuccino” after an afternoon of shopping at Grand Canal Shoppes, where you can find brands like Louboutin, Tory Burch, and Michael Kors. And, just in case anyone had any doubts about Adelson’s efforts to recreate Venice, he built the Campanile of St. Mark’s.

Pressures caused by inflation

Assuming that the cost of living in Las Vegas is not prohibitively expensive, it appears that Turner’s penchant for opulence does not prevent him from frequent visits to the Venetian casino. Is it too much to pay around $800 per month for a three-bedroom house with a pool? Even a modest apartment in New York should cost more than three thousand dollars.

Henrique Cavalcante has an opposing viewpoint. After traveling from Sao Paulo with his family, he is heard complaining that the cost of a Cirque du Soleil ticket, which was more than $150, was too expensive. The logic of the market applies equally well in the Venetian. “If there are individuals who can purchase a bottle of 33cl of water for five dollars, why not sell at that price?” Turner asked.

Cavalcante suggests turning to the variety that a street economy can provide to combat inflationary pressures; for example, the price of a bottle of water can be reduced by a factor of five in a street economy. Set aside at least four dollars in the name of an addiction that draws more than 40 million tourists to the world’s gambling capital each year. Thank you very much, Sheldon Adelson, for being the world’s eighth richest man!
