As a professional gambler, your ultimate goal should always be to try your chances in Vegas. Any gambler worth his weight in gold should visit Las Vegas at least once. But when you step off the plane or get out of the car, where should you go to maximize your chances of winning an early retirement? Where should eat to save money, or sleep for that matter? Relax, this guide is going to help you get around Vegas so that you can worry about beating the odds so that you can come home a millionaire.
The first thing you should do in Las Vegas a pro gambler is hit the World Series of Poker tournament at the Rio. If you think you have what it takes, you can try your hand against some of the best poker players in the world for a chance to win a pot worth thousands of dollars. Or you can just hit the slots in a slot tournament at the Rio. But no matter what casino you go to, the MGM Grand, The Bellagio or Caesars Palace, you'll find blackjack, roulette and poker tables galore just waiting for you to lay your bets down.
Where to Eat
When you want to take a break from losing your shirt, er winning, you will want to eat at he Mandalay Bay taco joint Hussong's Las Vegas. This quaint eatery located in the Mandalay Place, offers tacos, chips and salsa, and margaritas. It's inexpensive and it's sure to fill you up so that you can continue putting your money to the test at the tables or the slots.
You can also try the Ecalibur at the Excalibur Casino, which offers family style Italian dining. If you love huge portions of pasta and meat sauce and you're a fan of sausage and peppers, you will not want to miss this restaurant; especially if you have the kids with you.
Where to Sleep
Even though there are no clocks or windows in the casino to let you know when it's night time, you are still bound to get tired sometimes. The good news is that there is no shortage of hotels in the city. With millions of out-of-towns visiting Vegas on a yearly basis, you should not be surprised to see hotels on every corner. However, whether or not there are vacancies in those hotels is another thing altogether. Not only that, but some hotels can be downright expensive.
That being said, you can find a nice inexpensive hotel at the Staybridge Suites in Las Vegas. This hotel has reasonably reasonable rates and offers a pleasant stay at a good value.
Then there is the Mandarin Oriental, also in Vegas, that offers a unique experience complete with room service, clean and fully stocked rooms, pools and much more.
With so many hotels in and around the city, you are sure to find something cheap that will allow you to get a good night's sleep between games. Then you'll be refreshed and ready to try the odds again as you play against the house. As a professional gambler, that's probably nothing new to you. But this is Las Vegas, and that means you're playing a completely different ball game. Good luck!
