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 provide important insights into the success and public perception of businesses across multiple market segments and industries.
The USA 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards is an annual tourism-and-travel-focused ranking that highlights the best that a given industry or market segment has to offer. Readers can vote on a vast number of polls, split into eight broad categories:
- Food & Drink
- Gear & Tech
- Holidays, Seasons and Events
- 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 accrued votes, and only the Top 10 are listed in the final results.
The Best Casinos Outside Las Vegas
While there are a number of USA Today 10Best polls that might interest our readers, one of the most notable ones when it comes to the gambling industry has to be the “Best Casino Outside Las Vegas”.
Las Vegas is still widely regarded 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, the Silver City 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 an exceptional player experience, rich and varied entertainment options and, most importantly, a dazzling and opulent interior. These winners are unparalleled.
