Great Las Vegas Vacation

The most sensible people in everyday life can go completely nuts when they're gambling so it is imperative to establish a gambling budget and stick to it. If you're tempted to spend more than you should, leave the credit cards behind because it is just too easy to get money in Las Vegas. Not only can you seriously dent your credit or debit cards, but you'll pay hefty fees each time you use the casinos to take money off of your cards. If you are a slots fan, the penny machines can be just as much fun as the dollar machines. You can play a lot longer and not feel guilty. What's more, you can still have the thrill of knowing you can win a jackpot worth several hundred dollars, even if you're playing just fifteen cents a spin.

Watch out for the progressives. Although just the thought of winning one of the monstrous jackpots that are advertised in neon lights above a bank of slots is exciting, realize that in order to even be in the running for the top prize, you'll have to max out your wager. That can add up in a hurry so if you can't afford to play at full throttle every spin, choose a standalone slot machine instead.

You can spend a small fortune just picking up a few things you may have forgotten for your trip to Las Vegas. If you've forgotten over the counter medicine or your toothbrush, look for the nearest Walgreens or CVS instead of purchasing these items at your hotel, where the prices are exorbitant. Also, lay off the minibar unless you have a fortune to spend and stock up on snacks and drinks at the drugstore too. Most of the strip hotels don't offer refrigerators in the rooms, but you can fill one of the sinks with ice and save a ton of money as even bottled water costs several dollars a bottle in the hotels and casinos.
If you can afford it, see one of your favorite shows and get the best seats you can afford. You'll make memories that will last a lifetime and you never know when you'll get the chance to see your favorite performer again. If you're strapped for cash, stop in at one of the Tickets Tonite booths. Calling won't do any good so you'll have to show up on the day of the performance you want to see to find out if they have any discounted tickets. You could get lucky and get as much as 50% off of a major performance. Realize, though, that you might not get the best seats or even get seats together with the others in your party, however, it is worth checking out.

There are lots of ways you can save money and still have a great time in Las Vegas. Look for the savings and you'll find numerous ways to stay under budget and still make memories that will last for a lifetime.
