I’ve been planning a Las Vegas vacation for my birthday weekend (my birthday is on Sunday, September 25th), and I’ve been analyzing which casinos are best to stay (and gamble in) just for the fun of it. I’ve been aiming at going to Caesars Palace this year, stay at the hotel and gamble for just two nights (with the first night for just sleeping in the hotel and settling down after a 5 hour flight from EWR (Newark Airport)), party and take a flight to my hometown (Chicago) for my birthday before returning to New Jersey for IT classes (assuming I’ll still be there).
One of the benefits of having a birthday on late September (besides a plethera of museum admission deals in Chicago- course I’m not vacationing in Chicago) is that according to some websites, the traffic is supposed to be less dense than going to Vegas by December (where I went there last year), so I’ll be able to get a shorter wait line when I get to the buffet at Caesars (I missed out last year due to a really long line for Christmas). Besides that, I plan on gambling there (what do you expect), and have fun along the way.
Now the suggestions:
[li]How much gambling money should I bring on board for my freaky Friday? Last time I went to Vegas I had about $1000 to gamble for a week (and I lost it all, sadly), should that be enough for one day, or should I bring more (and it’s for fun, mind you- I have a paying part-time job that pays me nearly $400 per paycheck (two weeks)).[/li][li]any gambling tips you guys could share with me? I had my plans set out to play blackjack and craps (I’ve still got to improve my hold 'em skills if I want to play poker- I’m normally good with stud poker).[/li][li]I couldn’t think of any other tips, if you guys got any other suggestions, let me know.[/li][/ul]
