Las Vegas Strip - Common Mistakes

Gambling and Las Vegas go together as naturally as any two phrases in the world of travel. You can begin playing the moment you step off the plane at McCarran International Airport. There are slot machines in the terminal.

Some people arrive thinking they will score a big win and leave Las Vegas with bags of money. It certainly does happen -- but not very often.

Please take a look at the odds for winning. Please learn about the games you'll be playing, including strategies and rules, before you enter the casinos.

Responsible players view gambling as entertainment, and they set limits for themselves. Once the limit is reached, the curtain falls on their entertainment. If you can't do that, don't play at all.
