Las Vegas is known as the entertainment capital of the world, thanks to its broad scope of entertainment options, from shows, museums, and casinos. The figures speak for themselves; in 2019, 49.5 million people visited Las Vegas, up from the 42.1 million visitors the year prior. Of the visitors in 2018, 74% said they gambled while they were in the city.

With several new events planned to debut in 2021, it’s forecasted that Las Vegas will continue to attract strong visitation figures, with highlights that include the return of Cirque Du Soleil, which will present two performances this summer. The worldwide growth of the online gambling industry may also increase the number of visitors in the city.

Whereas, before gambling moved online, confidence was required to sit at one of the tables in Vegas. When online casinos emerged, many were left asking the question: how does an online casino work? The answer is that, aside from letting individuals experience the thrill of gambling from their home, and offering incentives like welcome bonuses, online casinos are very much like the casinos along the Strip. Players have access to Vegas slots, and online casinos create similar atmospheres to conventional casinos, such as by offering games like blackjack with a live dealer.

However, with new events like Cirque Du Soleil’s shows “O” and “Mystère” being held at hotels in Vegas that also have casinos, online gamblers may once again decide to experience a traditional casino. They can put all of their acquired skills from the online world to the test.

For example, The Beatles: Love is a theatrical production, combining the music of The Beatles. Viewers follow the story of the most famous bands in the world, from their formation to their break into stardom. A year before this, Cirque Du Soleil debuted its show Corteo – it tells the story of a clown who watches his funeral in a carnival-like atmosphere.

A Look At The New Shows

Described as an Aquatic masterpiece, “O” is a performance that will feature acrobats, divers, and synchronized swimmers. Performances will begin on July 1st at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. Before the show, people can check out the facilities of the Bellagio, including its world-class casino, which features one of the most exciting slot machine scenes in Vegas. The casino also has table games and poker.

The second show will be held at Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. While “O” centers on water, “Mystère” is a sensory experience. The show will feature dancers and high-energy acrobatics. Like at the Bellagio, Treasure Island has a casino with table games and slots, a perfect activity for before or after the show.
