Ah, Vegas! How many times have you dreamt of going to Las Vegas to try your hand at Black Jack or the roulette wheels? You imagine playing the slots, only to have all the lights start flashing, bells blaring and gold coins piling at your feet like a sandstorm in the Mojave Desert. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that just doesn’t happen!
Usually, the machine spits out a card that you take to the cashier for your $20 winning or, more often than not, nothing. You simply put in your next token and try again. What if you could win big in Vegas before ever playing at the first casino? In fact, there are at least three ways to win big enough so that you actually have a few dollars left over to take on lady luck.
1. Learn the Closely-Held Secret of Vegas
You’ve heard it said that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Perhaps that’s why it’s still a secret! One of the best ways to win big in Vegas is to find the right hotel that won’t cost an arm and a leg. Sure, staying at those 5-star hotels on the boulevard will leave you one leg to hop down to the tables with and one arm to pull the lever down on the slots, but why go short-handed? (Pardon the pun!)
You can find affordable hotels with 5-star service that aren’t necessarily affiliated with the big casinos. Some may be, some may not be, but you can find out the ‘secret’ to affordable accommodations on the SecretHotels.org website.
2. Spend Next to Nothing on Food!
Anyone who lives in Nevada or nearby California has seen those flashing billboards on every major highway. Eat free (or cheap) buffets with a player’s card at this casino on the Strip or, Ladies Night where women drink free all night. For every drink that a man buys, his ‘date’ gets one free. There are all kinds of deals like this, so if you time your visits to the casinos just right – at meal time – you’ll get a heck of a bargain! Play to your heart’s content and eat or drink virtually for free, or as close to it as you can get.
3. Book Your Stays to Coincide with Big Name Shows
Sometimes, you can time your stay in Vegas at just the right moment to see your favorite celeb performing at dinner clubs in the casinos. If you’ve never been to Vegas, you have no idea what it’s like to walk into a building that’s like a mini-city unto itself. You can do everything from visit trendy designer shops to watching Celine perform for a once-in-a-lifetime show. Some of these big name acts no longer tour but are resident performers in Vegas. You see? It stays in Vegas, just like the slogan says!
It’s amazing what you can find in Vegas and perhaps that’s why it stays in Vegas. A Las Vegas vacation is like a treasure hunt every time you visit and if you don’t bring home the jackpot, you bring home the gold – memories to last until next year when you’ll be back again.
