    Wow, I guess I am a degenerate gambler. I think the only places I haven't been in are the M, Green Valley & Sunset.

    I mean there might be some smaller joints but I'm only talking places that have a hotel attached.

    oops, forgot one. I've never been in Terrible's.

    Sahara. We made a drunken attempt which made for a good story. But, I feel kind of bad about not seeing it. Also, a lot of off-strip places and any strip place that existed and closed before 2004.

    haven't set foot in the palace station. nor arizona charlies, boulder or decatur. nor sunset station. silver nugget. the ones up north like rancho or texas station. many of the ones on boulder highway (boulder station? longhorn or whatever it is called? nevada palace).

    aliante?

    My trip last week I finally visited tuscany, westin on flamingo and days inn wild wild west.

    I wasn't impressed with the tuscany, I wanted to get some chips and the cashier made a smirk and said that I could only get 1 chip from her. I decided to play $20 at the bj tables, won $25 and kept the extra 5 $1 chips. so much for her, I ended up getting the chips for free and I had a smirk on my face when I turned in $20 chips for a $20 bill, wanted to tell her....."in your face" lol. westin didn't have $1 chips, only $1 coins. Good, I can use them as my ball markers. I didn't even think about getting chips from wild wild west.

    Regarding Tuscany, a few years ago when playing there for the first time, another player decided to sit out a few hands. When he tried to get back in, he was told he had to wait until the next shuffle. It was a 6-deck shoe! Holy crap! I've encountered "no mid-deck entry" lots of times on single and double deck games, but never on a 6-deck shoe. I asked what would happen if someone had to go to the bathroom and was told that they could jump right back in upon their return. That place is nuts!

    I'm pretty much a "strip only" guy and have been to LV nine times since '01. For some reason I have never set foot in Bally's. I actually went there last spring and couldn't seem to find the entrance to the garage and said screw it, I'll come back later. I didn't make it back so it's still not been explored by me. I think the only other strip properties I've missed are Encore and Stratosphere. Maybe I'll check them off next month. I did hit Sahara a few times and the properties that resided in the now "Echelon Desert" before they passed.

    Never made it further than the venetian. Tried, but failed. Too much to see/do/drink on the way down.

    I've never been in Circus Circus or the Quad since I don't have insurance and tetanus shots are expensive.

    City center. I have been to Cosmo, but never any of the other city center casinos. Seems too confusing to get into them

    I've been to every strip hotel from the Mandalay Bay to Sahara since the late 70's. I also visited the Strat, the old Bob Stupak joint, most of the DT hotels, Rio, Gold Coast, Palms, Orleans, the Las Vegas Hilton, the Landmark, the old San Remo Hotel, Stardust, Desert Inn, the Marina Hotel, Holiday Inn, the Showboat, and finally...........the El Rancho and Thunderbird.

    I kind of make it a point to visit every new one. Have for a few decades now.

    However, the ones I can think of right off hand which I've never set foot in are Western (moot now), Aztec Inn, and the one on Sahara, east of Paradise, which I think is named Eureka, but I'm not 100% sure.
