Your gaming adventure begins outside the iconic Caesar’s Palace at a place millions pass, but few notice: the statue of Nike. If you’re not up on your Greek mythology, Nike is the Goddess of Victory. What could be a more fitting totem for the capital of gambling?!
After getting the lowdown on Vegas’ gaming history, you’ll head inside one of the mega hotels on The Strip to learn about the ever-present (yes, they’re even in the airport) slot machines. These addictive games have a culture all their own. From the superstitions of how to pick a winner, to the technology inside, your guide will give you the rundown on this iconic Vegas game. You’ll then have a chance to play them for yourself. Who knows? Maybe you’ll pick the right one and hit the jackpot!
You’ll then head over to one of the more sophisticated hotels in town - a beautiful example of classic design and subtle elegance. This is where you’ll learn about one of the most exciting and, to some, intimidating games: craps. Craps evokes images of a tuxedo-clad James Bond, high energy betting, and cheering crowds, but for the uninitiated, this game can seem confusing or formidable. Your guide will give you all the info you need to feel confident placing bets along with the most seasoned gamblers.
Next, it’s off to a hotel that’s truly “for the birds.” This hotel is vintage Vegas at its best and is still an incredible example of classic Las Vegas flair. Here, you’ll hear all about the not-so-secret ties of old Las Vegas to the mafia and men like Bugsy Siegel within a beautiful ‘hidden’ garden. Your guide will also demonstrate a game of her/his choice.
Finally, your guide will take you to experience one of the newest ways to enjoy gambling in Las Vegas; a hotel, casino, shopping and entertainment promenade, where you’ll witness the future of gaming. Classic table games and slots are played next to beer pong (an American college-kid favorite), while a live DJ mixes beats you can’t help but move to. Here well play our final game of your tour - whether it’s something well-known like Texas Hold ‘Em, Blackjack, Roulette or a new addition, we challenge you to keep your poker face at this distinctly modern casino.
Your tour ends here but before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for recommendations on other exciting games to try, their favorite casinos in town, or a spot to grab a late lunch. Whatever the rest of your day brings, you’ll already feel like a winner!
