    Hello All, I've been following the topics on this board for over two years now(yes, I should have said hi when i registered).
    We (my wife and I)are going to visit vegas again this october for 12 days and can hardly wait.
    The plan is to stay at the Mirage hotel as we were in the Paris hotel before(2 years ago).

    Thanks to all who take the time to write stories and info on this board, I enjoy the information and stories very much.

    Happy gaming and hope to meet you in Vegas!

    mirage is a good hotel as well although i never stayed there (i miss the calais paris suite though but as budget is tighter i settle for jubilee room at ballys)

    Thanks all for the nice replies, Vegasnut have fun on your trip, I see you are there for 3,5 weeks? :nworthy:
    I can't stay that long, I'm planning on playing some craps for the first time, does anyone know if there is a " learning" table to practice, learn the game? I have watched some youtube videos but i would like to have some practice prior to playing for real money......

    Welcome aboard armaste! Yes, a lot of casinos have lessons. Usually they are during the day. Not sure about Mirage but hopefully you can find something close. Hope you enjoy your stay at Mirage, it's one of my favs. Good luck on the trip.

    My wife was born in Groningen and we will be in Vegas for our annual trip with ~12 family members in October staying at El Cortez and the Mirage. Good luck to you and enjoy!

    You may want to check out Raiding the Rock Vault, Ellis Island, and El Cortez downtown if you are looking for some good values.

    Viva!

    Welcome to the board. The Venetian and/or Palazzo which are across the street from the Mirage usually offer craps lessons in the morning I believe. Best of luck and enjoy!
