Choosing a Casino
You came to Las Vegas to gamble, but don’t know how to choose the right casino to go to. Here are a few hints to help you make your decision. But ultimately, you have to go where you are most comfortable. If you don’t like the service, then leave. There are always other casinos that will treat you better. Moreover, there are more than enough to choose if one is not to your liking.
Go casino hopping. Take in all the casinos you are thinking about visiting. See how the dealers treat people and how the wait staff is toward the gamblers. Visit two or three and make your decision. You may find something you like, such as penny slots in one, that you may not find in another.
Be warned that all casinos have no windows or clocks. They don’t want you to know what time it is at any given time. If you are on a losing streak, they certainly don’t want you to break by realizing it is after three in the morning. Take a watch with you so limits can be set on gambling time.
There is an old legend that hasn’t been proven or unproven. The thought is the casinos pump in fresh oxygen to keep the gamblers from getting tired. This may be true as some people say they have done a long stretch of betting only to find out later it is the next day.
Don’t go to into the casino and act like a snob. Likewise, don’t go in intimidated because of the sheer enormity of the place. If you are looking for a small place to start out, hit the downtown casinos. Stakes are lower and people are more friendly. Payoffs are higher at some hotels. Most of them are located downtown on Fremont Street.
