Bagatelle Beach Tropicana Las Vegas

Eating and drinking outside? I’m in! A couple weeks ago I was invited to have lunch at the new Bagatelle Beach at Tropicana. This was the soft opening and a great way to kick off Cinco De Mayo weekend before losing every bet I made on the Kentucky Derby. Since this was the soft opening […]

Flamingo Las Vegas

Las Vegas lost almost 300 cheap hotel rooms when Bill’s Gambling Hall closed in February. The plan was to replace it with a ultra-cool-young-hip-celebrity-friendly boutique hotel. Caesars Entertainment did that by partnering with Gansevoort and Victor Drai for the new Gansevoort Las Vegas. As with every new casino Gansevoort Las Vegas will open with prices starting […]

People often ask for cheap places to stay in Las Vegas and I like to send people to hotels with new and clean hotel rooms first and formost. After new and clean rooms I look to the casino and then other amenities since that’s how I roll. In the past couple weeks a few non-major […]

Luxor Craps Table

As the year ended I looked at the best craps in downtown Las Vegas and didn’t find anything to surprising. Main Street Station has the best odds for a craps game downtown. It’s also the most affordable with 20x odds on $5 bets. Most gaming on the Vegas Strip is worse than those offered in […]

Aliante Las Vegas Casino

A big deal was made about Aliante Station losing the Station portion of their name last week and becoming just Aliante Casino, a solely owned and operated casino off of the Vegas strip.
