Following on from yesterday’s blog post, I’ve found some more useful casino books in my personal library here at home. They’re all good reading – and not expensive. Each represents a good investment in time to enhance / improve your casino experience. But don’t just take my word for it – read them for yourself!
Super Casino: Inside the New Las Vegas by Pete Earley – This in an interesting behind-the-scenes look at Las Vegas hotels. It looks at how they are run to ensure a perfect guest experience… and even gives details about the security teams employed to keep the guests under control. It’s useful reading for players, as you can glean valuable information about the “team setups” in casinos and how to maximize for comps etc.
Comp City: A Guide to Free Las Vegas Vacations by Max Rubin – This excellent book taught me a lot about the inner workings of pit bosses / VIP hosts / slot hosts / cleaning room staff etc – and helped me to maximise my comps in one stay at Vegas for extra hundreds of dollars! Well worth the time to read. I read mine on a long haul plane to Las Vegas from New Zealand (13 hrs flying) and the information was incredibly useful when I arrived in Sin City.
Frommers® Las Vegas 2008 (Frommers Complete) – This Frommers Guide is hot off the press (only launched on 13 November 2007). I’ve had previous Frommers guides to Las Vegas, and they’re excellent. You’ll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer’s. It’s like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best.
Las Vegas 2008 Calendar – Every gambler’s home should have a Las Vegas Calendar on the wall (well, I do). This square wall calendar is high quality.
