    Would love to hear some stories. I read just about every book by former dealers and pit bosses. Can't get enough of it.

    Although, the homeless on the bridges over Las Vegas Blvd are especially ripe.

    My best gambling tip for you is to learn to play Texas hold-em poker against other people not the House.

    1. There is no house advantage. The house takes money out of each pot as a fee to host the games.

    2. If you are seated at a full table of 10 people you only have to risk money 2 times out of 10 hands. You can fold if you don't like your hand.

    3. You still get free drinks and most poker rooms are near the sports books

    4. It's very social and you meet interesting (degenerate) gamblers.

    5. You can play very low limits. I think Aria has many 1-3 NL games with max buy in of $300. Some casinos will actually spread a 2-4 limit game which is great to learn.

    6. Walking into a poker room for the first time can be initimidating but once you learn the basics you will be fine.

    7. There are many free apps to learn the basics of the games. If you are flying there you can use the app and have a few hundred hands of learning before you hit real tables.

    Looks like I've decided to do the Vdara instead, we're minutes away from the Aria and Bellagio andwe still get the nice room. I actually do play Tx hold em with friends, so I'll know what I'm doing somewhat. Thanks the help!

    If I was coming all the way from England I'd split my time between Reno and Lake Tahoe which has gambling as well but is also incredibly beautiful. If you got the time you could even hit Yosemite.

    Plus I actually like Reno. Less glitz but more personality imho.

    As poor college students in the early 90s, my friends and I would go to Reno and stay at Circus Circus. It was a complete dump then. It’s hard to believe it’s any better now.
    But it was cheap, during the week, rooms were only $19.99.

    I checked into Circus Circus. Lady gives me the key to my room I go to the room a retarded guy with a Hump who I assume was a maid was in there cleaning and it was 6pm at night

    I go back to the front desk. Tell them they fucked up. The lady makes me wait an hour just to tell me she cannot give me a suite that I never asked for. I said I don’t care I just want a room she goes “oh we are just trying to make up for the inconvenience” I go “well it’s like 8pm and I still don’t have a fucking room”

    I finally go to a room. Nothing works. The tv I cannot change the channel and it’s on The Big Bang Theory which is as funny as watching animals get slaughtered. The place smells worse than a shitty Super 8 with take out curry.

    I order a whore off the internet. I order this nice looking Korean girl. What shows up is some 55 year old truck stop looking white lady with dentures. I tell her she is not the woman I ordered she goes too bad you don’t give me a room fee plus tip I call the cops on you


    Me and the whore walk to my shitty room. On the way a way hotter escort is leaving a room having just been fucked and I’m thinking “why didn’t I get that?”


    The old lady whore gets in my room. Her room fee is $500 plus she demands a $1200 tip. I tell her seriously go fuck yourself. She threatens me with the cops again. I tell her ok, $500 plus a $100 tip for a handjob. She jerks me off and leaves the room finally


    But I still ended up having a good time later that night anyway

    Places like the Luxor and Excalibur you can stay on the strip at reasonable money and those are actually decent resort hotels

    Vdara is nice.... non smoking hotel... no casino - but you just walk across the driveway to the back door of the Aria.
