Las Vegas is where you can find the most Instagrammable casinos resorts, with Caesars Palace, MGM Grand and Bellagio making the list
Asia is home to some of the most Instagrammable casino resorts such as Philippines, Singapore and Macau

Casino resorts have been at the centre of some of our favourite film and TV moments. Not to mention, they have had some of the biggest wins on the planet!

Recent Google Trends data found that interest in online casinos has doubled in recent months, whilst there has also been a 150% increase in Brits enquiring about the best casino pay-outs. Clearly, people haven’t let lockdown stop their love of potentially winning big, with people still taking to live online casinos during lockdown.

With many casino resorts reopening their doors for the first time in months, Compare.bet sought to find out which casino resorts rank as the most popular on Instagram.

At the top of the list is Marina Bay Sands with a whopping 1.7 million hashtags! The Singapore-based resort is a clear favourite with enthusiasts across the world and takes the title of the most Instagrammed casino resort.
Renowned for its appearance in the 2009 award-winning film The Hangover, Caesars Palace snatches second place with over 1.5 million hashtags, followed by MGM Grand with 1.4 million hashtags.

If you are a fan of Ocean’s Eleven, then you’ll already have heard of the Bellagio which is placed as the sixth most Instagrammed casino resort around the world. With 140,338 hashtagged posts it adds to the long list of Las Vegas favourites.

18,575 posts behind Bellagio is Australia’s very own Crown Casino, with 121,763 hashtags on Instagram. Amassing 32,000 Google searches on average each month it’s no surprise this private gambling hub made it on the list.
Made even more popular by films like GoldenEye, Oceans Twelve and Monte Carlo, Casino Monte-Carlo is the eighth most Instagrammable casino resort. With 93,881 hashtagged photos and an average 5,400 Google searches per month – no list is complete without it.

Macau has not only one, but two casinos that make it to the list! The first being The Venetian with 71,727 hashtagged posts on Instagram, placing it as the ninth most Instagrammable casino resort found by Compare.bet. Wynn Palace follows in 12th place with 43,770 tagged pictures on Instagram.
Joining Macau and Singapore in representing Asian casinos resorts, City of Dreams and Resorts World Sentosa placed in 14th and 15th place, completing the list.

Yggdrasil and Bad Dingo break the ice with GigaBlox™ hit Arctic Sorcerer
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Yggdrasil and ReelPlay have partnered to release Bad Dingo’s icy new adventure Arctic Sorcerer, a title featuring frosty big wins and the popular GigaBlox™ mechanic.

The latest YG Masters creation sees the title’s main protagonist, the Arctic Sorcerer, attempting to release his mystical animal companions and treasures from the ice for big wins.

The game’s main feature, Arctic Blast, can occur during the base game and the free spins mode, with the sorcerer modifying the reels with Mystery GigaBlox™ symbols, which then change into animals, gems, scatters, or wilds.

Yggdrasil’s popular GigaBlox™ mechanic sees the delivery of symbols from 2×2 to 5×5. After these symbols land, they split into regular-sized symbols leading to bigger wins.

When a player lands five or more scatters, between five and 15 free spins will be awarded. During the mode, wilds act as multipliers of x2 and up to 80 free spins can be triggered.

The game also has a wild collection counter and if five wild symbols land during free spins, an additional two spins are awarded. This continues until a total of 20 wild symbols have been collected.

Arctic Sorcerer is powered by GATI, Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to consistently produce cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Adding another GigaBlox™ title to our YG Masters portfolio is great and highlights the popularity of our proprietary mechanic. Arctic Sorcerer is a great creation by Bad Dingo and creates an exciting experience with great win potential.”

David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay, said: “ReelPlay is delighted to enable Bad Dingo’s latest creation to market. Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program provides ReelPlay’s partner studios the opportunity to distribute cleverly crafted slots games to a wide network of operator partners.”
