Going to Vegas for the first time...need some tips


Will be staying on the strip at one of the big resorts later this week for 3 days.

I have never gambled before, so I am nervous. I want to play Blackjack, but I don't understand some of the stuff the dealer says. What is the best way to lean to play without looking stupid? What is the best casino for a gambling newbie?

Still don't know what shows to check out. There are so many to pick from...

The OT 10 that flirts with you wants $500 an hour. Worth it though

Wynn is alittle more pricey tables so dont play there. Bilagio is the shite (Im sure I spelled that wrong) and Cesaers is really cool too

Youtube will help you. Lay the money on the table, don't try to hand it to the dealer. Also play Baccarat best/easiest game to play.

Can't go wrong with O (Bellagio) or Beatles Love (Mirage)... I've also heard good things about Jersey Boys.

Blackjack is an easy game....google "Blackjack for beginners" and read up.

Craps is the best casino game. I wouldn't waste my time with blackjack ... you'll have more fun and lose less at Craps.

I also highly recommend STK in the Cosmopolitan to eat...it is pricey, but worth it. Great food.

You can make a bankroll last a lot longer playing blackjack versus craps

I've heard a lot about buffets. Which one is the best? Also all the buffets all day long?
