    Not to bad of a show except for me it should be titled 10 things I already knew. Surprised with how new it is, seems like every show I watch on Vegas is like 5+ years old.


    I like how nobody told him you have to bet max on the Lionshare to win the jackpot.

    My favorite of all is still the A&E program " Las Vegas : Gamble In The Desert " from the 90's.

    Strange. I went searching but I can't find it except a copy on Amazon. It's from 1996 and was narrated by Richard Crenna. Shown over two nights.

    Everything from the original Paiute Indian settlers to the Stratosphere which had just been built.

    Great program if you can find it.

    The Chapters were : Gamble In The Desert and House Of Cards.

    This has become our favorite show for TV watching/dinner eating. We usually know most of the things, but it's a fun show and so much better for the digestion than watching the news. :haha:

    If you poke around YouTube, quite a few of those Vegas shows from the 90's are on there.
