World's biggest house of cards - Guinness Book of World Records

U.S. cardstacker Bryan Berg poses for photographers after successfully making a new Guinness World Record for the largest house of free-standing playing cards.

The architect Berg used 218,792 cards to create a replica of the Venetian Macau, which is on display in its namesake luxury hotel and casino

The structure weighs 272 kg and measures 10 metres by 3 metres.

Berg works on his masterpiece, which took 44 days to complete and nearly collapsed several times.

The record breaker proudly accepts his certificate form the Guinness Book of World Records.

Berg's creation is modelled on the Venetian, which sits at the heart of Macau's Cotai Strip, the China-ruled city's version of Las Vegasneon alley.
