Casinos / Gambling, Las Vegas
In Vegas if you are doing any kind of gambling a waitress may offer you a drink - This means its free. However, if you walk up to a bar and order a drink - expect to pay about $8 for a domestic beer. So if you're not into gambling, at least act like it.
THIS MAY COME AS A SURPRISE TO THOSE OF YOU NOT LIVING IN LAS VEGAS, BUT THERE ARE MORE CATHOLIC CHURCHES THAN CASINOS.
NOT SURPRISINGLY SOME WORSHIPERS AT SUNDAY SERVICES WILL GIVE CASINO CHIPS RATHER THAN CASH WHEN THE BASKET IS PASSED.
SINCE THEY GET CHIPS FROM MANY DIFFERENT CASINOS, THE CHURCHES HAVE DEVISED A METHOD TO COLLECT THE OFFERINGS.
THE CHURCHES SEND ALL THEIR COLLECTED CHIPS TO A NEARBY FRANSISCAN MONASTERY FOR SORTING AND THEN THE CHIPS ARE TAKEN TO THE CASINOS OF ORIGIN AND CASHED IN.
THIS IS DONE BY CHIP MONKS .
YOU DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT COMING DID YOU ?
The casinos will give you free alcohol in order to inhibit your common since. Need I say more?
Unique Suggestions: Bottled water is the way to go. You still have to tip the cocktail waitress. so stay safe and sane.
Fun Alternatives: Don't drink anything!
These Gambling games are meant for fun and recreation. People with gambling addiction should avoid playing these games as they might run out of money quickly.

These are only fun games, and should not be played seriously. Do not spend plenty of money on gambling. I tried playing once and got ripped of my clothes :(
Hey, it may seem crazy to go to Vegas and not gamble. As a non-gambler I had to wonder why I was going at first. But once I got there I realized I was going to be way too busy to gamble much anyway! Vegas does not make it easy though. For every attraction you want to go to, even if you want to use the monorail, you have to walk through the casinos - there are no ways around that. And they are available all the time.
I did end up playing some slots briefly but stuck to a maximum to lose before walking away. Deciding on the maximum you can lose and sticking to it is an oldy but a goodie. Don't even think about going to Vegas to make money - it's just pure entertainment along with everything else the city offers.
A big float comes over the casino at certain times throughout the day and plays a little music and girls throw beads over the edge of their big boat in the sky. A huge trap to get people into the casino which his off of the strip.
Fun Alternatives: Go to the arcade if you want to feel the thrill of receiving something for trying.
Its what Vegas is all about. But it can be a trap. One cannot find a clock anywhere other than your hotel room. When you enter any hotel, you just travel thru the casino to find stores, restaurants, restrooms, etc. They want you to stop and drop some bucks.
Unique Suggestions: Wear a watch, and spend your money wisely. Know when to quit. Everywhere you go you have a chance to gamble, so spread your money out.
Casinos that don't have a hotel are usually rip-off joints. I know of a couple of slot joints downtown that certainly fit the bill. These places will have people standing out front trying to aggressively lure you in. Avoid the temptation, because you will not win in these places.
Unique Suggestions: Take advantage of any freebies you can get out of them, but don't put any money in there tight machines.
Fun Alternatives: There's no need to go into these places. You can go into any hotel/casino in town and gamble. Your odds are a lot better in a hotel/casino.
Remember exactly where you came in, and know your way out. Once inside the casinos become a maze, and exits are hard to find...the longer you stay, the more money you are likely to spend...
Unique Suggestions: Remember the surroundings such as a restuarant or restroom, so when you want to get out, your not disorientated. Sounds dumb,but is very likely once your lost inside a world of flashing lights, slot machines and tables...
Gambling Gambling Gambling Is what Las Vegas is all about.
Unique Suggestions: Watch others lose their money.
Hey those hotels were never built because THEY LOST they are here because we the people LOST.
Oh go on then lose some money !
I came away $9 up.
Fun Alternatives: Spend your money on a night flight and see Las Vegas from the air at night, it's awesome. Helicopter flight the only way to travel. YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE GO FOR IT!
CRAPS! You either win fast, or loose fast!
Play the Slots and even Black Jack insted. Try to get the instructional videos that are sold in most game stores, (you can find one in almost every mall) This will give you a slight edge to win. You are probably saying 'What is so hard about putting coins in a slot machine!' Trust me, there is more to it than that! GET THE VIDEOS! (For proof, SEE picture of slot machine on General Tips! )
I defy anyone to go to Las Vegas and not put money into a slot machine. Be very careful, a dollar here, a dollar there, another couple of dollars whilst sat at the bar, and yet another while you are waiting for your lady to come out of the restroom. It all adds up. Set yourself a limit, you won't be able to stick to it, but do try. The blackjack and roulette tables can ruin your holiday. Leave the long sessions to the people who go to Vegas for the gambling. Remember, the casinos pay for Las Vegas, some people win but most lose.
SLOT MACHINES!!!!! Especially the ones at the airport. I have gotten lucky a couple of times but have paid more than my share back. You don't think they built these gargantuan edifices with credit and good looks do you? Hell no! They built them 25 cents at a time by suckers like you and me who are looking for the elusive big payout.
One thing you will learn, provided you give yourself a push and make some bucks available is, that in the end the dealers always wins, no matter what. If you gamble a few rounds you may win a couple of bucks, but try a bit longer and it’s all gone. I made my experience and after winning about 200 dollars I got so secure and convinced that I could win more – sure. I left with empty pockets and my credit card did not appreciate that evening either. Well, at least I can say, I did it and now I know what the feeling is to gamble. It’s great.
Don't bother to stand in line for free pulls, the lines are long. Read the fine print on all offers. They say you get $40 worth of free slot play, but all they really do is RE-Emburse you by sending a voucher to your home after you leave...this voucher has to be brought back and you end up playing with the money anyhow.
