World’s spookiest haunted casinos
There have been a lot of reports of ghosts spotted in casinos across the world, especially in the US. Most of them have some creepy story related to people who used to hang around the gambling scene. So let’s have a look at some interesting cases.
Bally’s Resort & Casino is built on top of the second largest hotel fire to ever happen in the United States. 80 people died in this horrible tragedy on the 21st of November, 1980. At the time the old MGM Grand occupied this space. The fire was caused by faulty wiring and it forced desperate hotel guests to jump out the windows when they figured out that firefighters would not reach them in time. It’s said that the spirits of these people still haunt the higher floors, 19 through 24, in the North Tower. Guest and employees will back this up, reporting strange ghost-like figures have been seen walking around.
The Tropicana in Las Vegas has seen its odd share of weird, possibly paranormal events. But one of the weirdest has to be the large wooden tiki mask they used to have up at the entrance. This weird relic was said to contain a trapped spirit which caused a couple of guests who touched it to get a nasty purple rash. Even weirder is that in some photos of visitors in front of it you can see a strange purple haze emanating from it. After they decided to take it down this only convinced more and more people that something was very wrong with it.
And last but not least we have the Luxor Casino in Las Vegas. Besides the fact that it emulates an Egyptian style establishment, people think of it as haunted as well. This is due to the fact that during its construction in 1993, a lot of workers died in several freak accidents. Later on several guests committed suicide by jumping off the balconies and in 2006 a young man was killed by a car bomb in the garage.
Now whether you choose to believe all of these weird rumors or not it’s completely up to you. But keep in mind that even the most skeptical can sometimes be proven wrong.
