    Some people say that Vegas itself is a tourist trap. In a way this is true because if you get carried away in the casinos, you can leave very very very broke. Just ensure that when planning a trip here, you should budget for gambling losses.

    SLOTS....slot machines can be set to payback at 75% to 99%. In the big casinos they are often paying out 75%. Not too bad? If they guy next to you wins $100 on $1, now YOU are the one making up for it. In other words you are only likely to get 75 cents on your dollar if you play forever all of your life! NEVER try to win big on slots. Take $5 or $10 and see if you get lucky. If you really like SLOTS go to a place that advertises 98% pay back (check Slots of Fun on the Strip). A little tip? The Dollar machines are set for better payoff.

    What else - the casinos! This is from inside the New York hotel/casino. Advice: take only what you intend to lose. Remember, the hotels and casinos are FOR-profit businesses. You can get fortunate - I won $1,800 in one night off of the slots, but don't count on that happening every night. Take a little money, go have fun, enjoy the FREE drinks, and go home with ease in knowing you'll have enough money to make the mortgage payment!! :)

    A lot of people get excited because they hear that casinos offer free drinks to gamblers. This is not a myth, but it would be pointless to try and do all your drinking that way. Imagine this scenario: after sitting at a blackjack table for ten minutes, a cocktail waitress offers you a complimentary drink. You soon run out of luck at the table, and feel it would be best to get up and leave. However, that drink is still coming. To redeem your free drink, you stay at the table and continue losing. Fifteen minutes later, your 'free' drink arrives, but you are $100 in the hole. You have just bought yourself a very expensive free drink. Why do you think casinos do it? My tip: buy your own drinks so you're not tied to a table.

    OK, OK, it may be a trap but we sure had fun!! After 2 hours and uncountable laughter, we broke even. Not bad really, when you think of it.
