STAFF PICKS FOR ROLLING HIGH AND SPENDING LOW

Enjoy an exciting game of skill and chance while soaking up summer's rays at CheapTickets' top domestic and international destinations for gaming on the cheap.

Atlantic City – This summer, beat the heat indoors or on the beach – Atlantic City is the perfect place to do both on a budget. Home to spirited casino gaming, shopping, an energetic ocean-view boardwalk and everything in-between, Atlantic City will please everyone. After a warm day on the beach, or a hot hand at the tables, guests can cool off at Red Square, a restaurant in The Quarter at Tropicana that features a 60-foot bar made out of solid ice.

New Orleans – The Big Easy can also offer big savings. As the city encourages us to rediscover this classic destination, gamers will especially love the culture's all-play mentality. Eclectic French architecture, spicy Cajun food and the rhythm of jazz music converge to create a destination full of character and fun, not high prices. The odds of a good time are in favor of the gamers at upscale destinations like the Bourbon Orleans - A Wyndham Historic Hotel, located in the heart of the French Quarter and near the city's best casinos, where guests can celebrate their vacation with a soul food feast.

San Juan, Puerto Rico –San Juan is a historic backdrop for modern day fun, minus the hefty price tag. Cobblestone streets, white sand beaches and tropical climates are complimented with lively gaming casinos, such as the Stellaris Casino at the San Juan Marriott Resort, just minutes from celebrated Old San Juan. When not tempting lady luck at the slots, visitors can explore one of the biggest and best natural harbors in the Caribbean, equipped with all the water sports and sunbathing amenities deemed necessary for a summer vacation in paradise.

Montreal, Canada – Old-world charm and a stronger U.S. dollar make gaming vacations to Montreal, Canada tre magnifique. Dubbed "North America's European city," travelers will find a sophisticated metropolis that marries modern style and classic architecture to create a world unto its own. An island city, gamers will enjoy a quiet oasis at Le Nouvel Hotel and Spa, a reprieve of summer sophistication and luxurious relaxation at Spa Tais, a full service on-site day spa. Montreal offers world-renowned casinos with dazzling atmospheres that invite players to live it up.
