How To Beat The Casinos How To Beat The Casinos

Las Vegas is still the gambling mecca of the world; it’s still the city of sin and the city of lights; it’s still like Disneyland for Adults; and it’s still the entertainment capital of the world. There’s so much going on at any one time in Las Vegas, that it’s hard for anyone to keep up! Based largely on the collection of Las Vegas and gambling related emails which flood my inbox every day, I’ve prepared this brief rundown of just some of the events / promotions / entertainment options available in Las Vegas during June 2008.

There’s a few interesting Las Vegas Casino Promotions also occurring in June 2008. Here’s just a sampling of some of the offers I’ve received recently: Firstly, The Las Vegas Hilton are letting ladies drink free in their Tempo Lounge during June 2008 (men can also drink free there if playing blackjack), and also giving ladies lots of other discounts and offers. Details are in the image below:

Secondly, the Tropicana Hotel Casino Las Vegas is letting guests who book a Sunday – Thursday night room before August 28 enter its Roll for Gas promotion. Guests are given four dice to roll at check in, and the prize given depends on that dice roll. It’s a free chance at a funbook (worst case) or $100 of Free Gas (best case).
