USA Today 10Best Readers Choice Awards Results

The results of the 2020 USA Today 10Best Readers Choice Awards are finally in! And once again, they’re very interesting, especially when it comes to the casino category.

The USA 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards is an annual tourism-and-travel-focused ranking that highlights the best that the industry has to offer. Readers can vote on a vast number of polls, split into eight broad categories:

  • Attractions
  • Destinations
  • Food & Drink
  • Gear & Tech
  • Holidays, Seasons and Events
  • Hotels
  • Transportation
  • Travel Type

Each of these is split into a plethora of polls. There are 20 nominees in every poll, chosen by an expert panel of judges. The nominees are then ranked by number of votes, and only the Top 10 are listed in the final results.

The Best Casinos Outside Las Vegas

While there are a number of interesting polls that might interest our readers, perhaps the most notable one is the “Best Casino Outside Las Vegas”.

Las Vegas is still widely viewed as the gambling capital of the US. Despite Nevada’s recent woes and the rapidly rising size and importance of many other US gambling markets, Las Vegas is still a tourist darling. And with good reason – Las Vegas’ casinos aim to please.

That being said, this category lists casinos from across the US that boast a high commitment to providing their customers with an exceptional and unforgettable experience and entertainment. While the nominees are situated outside of Las Vegas, their stellar offerings and atmosphere cannot be beat.

Without further ado, the 2020 best casinos outside Las Vegas are:

  • Barona Resort & Casino – Lakeside, Calif.
  • Foxwoods Resort Casino – Mashantucket, Conn.
  • Pechanga Resort Casino – Temecula, Calif.
  • Grand Sierra Resort – Reno
  • Mohegan Sun – Uncasville, Conn.
  • Encore Boston Harbor Resort – Everett, Mass.
  • Resorts World Catskills – Monticello, N.Y.
  • Atlantis Casino Resort Spa – Reno
  • Turning Stone Resort Casino – Verona, N.Y.
  • Beau Rivage Resort & Casino – Biloxi, Miss.

Congratulations to this year’s winners! And especially to our first place winner – Barona Resort & Casino, which offers 2,500 loose slots, 120 table games and the award-winning, 18-hole championship Barona Creek Golf Club.
