So my first couple of Vegas trips were on a budget, then I graduated college had some extra income and with no mortgage/family etc...I never really had a budget for my Vegas trips. But now I'm flying my 21 year old cousin out today and this will be his first Vegas trip (I covered his flight and hotel) so I will have to watch my own budget and also don't want to make him feel like he's missing out....sorry to say I have forgotten all the fun/free things that are available in Vegas.... and where all the cheap gambling is. We will be staying Fri and Saturday night at Planet Hollywood...so here is what I want to get a general idea of Where can I find cheap ($5 a hand) blackjack on the strip on the weekend....if not its ok I'm willing to go downtown so my cousin whose not a huge gambler can get more for his money Also who has some good free play offers? My cousin doesn't have any of the players cards so he's a first timer I think that's a good way to squeeze out some extra juice Besides the obvious (fountains, volcano, conservatory) free stuff on the strip any other big ones I'm just missing? I chose planet hollywood because it has decent cheap food options (earl of sandwich buffet etc..) but any other good priced food joints around there? He's not even a huge drinker so that saves me some big bar tabs! will just have to hrab a bottle of titos at the ABC store Thank you All I will be checking this periodically...my cousin is already in the air and I am about to fly out of AZ!
