Gambling Tips Las Vegas
Las Vegas harbours almost hundred casinos. One even bigger or more beautiful than the other. When you play the slot-machines regularly, I advise to become a member in the “Players Club” at your favorite casino. They’ll give you one of their ” Casino Members’ card” with which you can save points when you gamble at their slot-machines. Later you can redeem these points for gifts, money or for a free night stay. So don’t forget to stick your card in the slot-machine when you start to play. Of course you shouldn’t forget your card when you’re done playing.
Also when you play at the tables frequently and you attract the attention of the casino staff there is the possibility that they’ll reward you. They could give you a better hotel room for example. They call this a “upgrade”.
High Roller versus Whale
Are you a very big gambler or a so called “High Roller” , then Las Vegas is paradise. At the airport there will be a limousine that will take you to your hotel suite for free. In the hotel and casino you’ll be spoiled by the staff. You won’t have to pay for food, the drinks are free and you’ll get free tickets for shows and sporting events.
If you belong to the elite of ” High Rollers” then you’re a “Whale”. This select group of about 200 super rich gamblers spend many millions of dollars during their gambling trips. These Whales are so important to the casinos that they’re flown in especially in private jets. Of course they will then get the most beautiful and biggest penthouse, including private butler.
The private host or hostess will make sure that the Whale is short of nothing. All their wishes will be granted. This service can go very far at times, but the host is willing to take the risk. A Whale alone can be good for one or multiple day- turnover for the Casino. They don’t want to lose a guest like this, so he’ll be treasured.
Finally, a wise advise for the ones who are gonna give the gambling a try: put a certain limit to the amount your going to gamble with and stick with this. Las Vegas has a lot to offer, even when one doesn’t like to gamble.
