    wow. I cant believe all the guys telling you to skip the big casinos so you can win at gambling, lmao

    My guess is theyíve never gambled, do yourself a favor and blow past old Vegas it sucks. Unless you wanna see the lights over head thatís pretty cool. Vegas is not a place to got so you can win money, especially on your first trip. Enjoy yourself spend some money on your wife amd Gamble, drink, eat and drink some more at the nicest and the fanciest places... make some fun memories and take some cool pics

    Make money at home enjoy yourself vaca bro

    If its anywhere near back to normal when you go hit the big casinos. You may could go to old Town and win a little more but thats not guaranteed. What is guaranteed is the feeling of gambling and getting loose in the major casinos. The electricity of Cesar's when its going can't be beat i.m.o. the other big names get it too and that buzz crushes old Town.

    Ohhhh how true of a statement....future travelers here NEED to re-read that a million times.
    It's highly unlikely you'll win big here.

    I would go to Vegas to take in the sights, shows and other attractions. I live in the state and gambling has no real pull for me aside from maybe betting some football games or the Kentucky Derby.

    Gambling is a losing proposition. Slots aren't "looser" in other casinos. All slots have to have a minimum payback percentage regulated by the state gaming board. I can't remember the exact amount but the gaming board randomly tests the chips in them to make sure they hit that percent. Years ago a guy gave me the greatest advice. I was about 16 and as we were driving he said you see that billboard there advertising hottest slots in town with 97% payback? The casinos are flat out telling you your going to lose. There so arrogant they are telling you to your face that if you put in $100 your only going to get $97 back. They have taken a huge billboard out to tell you basically you will lose. Ever since that day I looked at gambling in a different light.

    That's why that MIT blackjack team got booted out. The house hates it when they loose.

    As has already been said they don't build those huge extravagant buildings and keep all those lights on because people are walking out with pockets full of cash. Take in the sights and walk through all the casinos. Last time I was there at the Luxor they had the Titanic exhibit with a big piece of the hull that had been pulled up it was creepy. Leave the gambling to the amateur's.

    100% slots are the worst thing to waste your money on. I remember we had a speaker from IGT come and do a presentation back in college and he explained that the games are rigged.

    The bright colors mixed with sounds of winning money is actually psychologically addicting, the entire process is rigged to make you release dopamine after a small win you get addicted. Youíll just keep putting your money back in chasing that high.

    Has anyone tried any of the escape rooms? Iíve done one off the strip before

    Yeah and now with every slot being a theme or television show they are so bad. That's the allure of playing maximum lines and bonus games. Funny how penny slots can cost $1.50 or more per pull ha ha.

    I thought Fremont (old Vegas) was a shit hole.

    There's tons and tons of shit on the strip that will keep you busy for DAYS even with the shows being shut down.

    Every casino has some sort of attraction -

    Fountains at Bellagio is cool as hell at night
    Volcano at the Mirage
    Gardens at the Bellagio
    Gondola rides at the ifel tower
    Aquarium at the Mandalay bay (I think)
    Ceasars has the moving statues

    That's just what I can think of off the top of my head.

    Also, I think the north and south rim at the grand canyon is back open if you have an entire free day.

    I have a feeling I will be planning another trip on the flight home. There is just so much there. Itís so expensive though. Already 2k deep for the hotel, flight and Olympia tickets.

    Tickets for the shows are way more expensive than I thought. The Olympia tickets were about 200 more than whatís actually listed because of fees and taxes.

    Ive honestly gotten in over my head some. Plus being around Christmas. Itís a lot to take care of for 4-5 day trip.
