What would you try and avoid in Sin City?
We know it’s very easy to gamble away all your savings and wake up married to a stranger..
Don’t Get Long Hauled.
From the plane you were getting all excited when you could see the strip, but when your taxi exits through the airport tunnel, you’re heading AWAY from the neon signs!
Avoid this by asking your cabbie to take Swenson Street and not the airport tunnel.
Don’t Use the Casino ATMs!
Yes they’re convenient but casino ATMs come with some of the highest fees anywhere! as much as $10 can be added to a single transaction. Find a non-casino ATM or use an ATM Hunter app.
So you’ve got your money and you’re at a table.
Now know the
Proper Gambling Etiquette
Don’t hand money directly to the dealer; security cameras need to witness everything, so lay your money on the table for the dealer to spread out and count in plain view of the cameras above.
Don’t bend the cards (it looks like you’re cheating).
Tip the dealer, especially if you’re winning (casino dealers generally work for minimum wage).
Don’t move your cards off of or under the table, and make sure to keep your highest chips in view at all times.
Don’t use your cellphone – prohibited
Okay so you’ve learned the rules, now you wanna nip across the road for a quick bite?
Las Vegas is one of the most dangerous cities in the US for pedestrians! You can get a several hundred dollar fine for merely stepping outside of the painted crosswalk lines on the Strip.
Don’t Wear Painful Shoes!
The cavernous resorts along the Strip are always bigger than you think: The MGM Grand’s gaming space clocks in at 170,000 square feet! And then there are the epic treks from one casino to the next. Wear comfortable shoes that won’t leave you with painful blisters.
Okay so your on the strip and baking away in the 117ºf sun what do you do next.
Buy some water!
Don’t Buy Bottled Water on the Street!
It’s actually illegal to buy bottled water from street peddlers on the Strip: (unless they have a business license). And according to police reports, some vendors even repack and resell bottles with tap water to thirsty tourists.
Great. Now someone passes you a ticket to a free show…
Great, I’ll jump in a cab and go see it!
It’s Illegal to Hail a Cab on the Strip!
You should only do so from designated taxi stands.
Don’t Get Duped by ‘Free’ Shows
Take these coupons with a grain of salt. Often, when you read the fine print, you’ll find that there is a two-drink minimum and sometimes an exorbitant service charge gets added to your total at the end of the night.
