    It's your last night in Vegas and you only have $100 left to gamble with. What Would You Do?

    Slots? Blackjack? Roulette? Craps? Play Small? Play Big? Poker?
    All-in on black or red?

    I would go find somewhere to find $5 BJ and play. I'll play 1 units and press if i get a streak. But the main thing would be that I would get hammered while I'll play. Worst case scenario, I'm hammered and i only lost $100. Once I'm ready to crash in my room, I'll go to my hotel I'm staying at and if I have anything less than $200 left from the gambling money, I'll put it on black on roulette. All-in!

    If I was on a room comp I'd play it as long as I can on the best vp I can find where I'm staying. Otherwise, there's no need to gamble. There is so much more to Vegas than gambling!

    I would put some honest effort into choosing three sports games at $25 per, and sit in the sports book and watch them. Some books (like LVH) will let you drink all night, as long as you have bets riding.

    If all three win, you would have $142.50 plus what's left of the last $25 (that you may have spent on tips or a snack) and you've managed to kill three or four hours.

    Despite if you won some or all of those bets, I would then find a $5 or $10 Pai Gow Poker table, and could play and drink all night with that money.

    Or Joe's idea is good, too.

    If it wasn't too late, I like the idea of putting it on a few games and watching them.

    This scenario would be so that we can't use the atm card. Last 100 of gambling money without taking out more.

    I'd bet on a few sports game, unless we go 0 for 3, we still have some games. Take that to $5 bj and get even more trashed.

    OK, nickel VP downtown. .25 per hand and a $1 tip to the waitress for each drink.

    If I only had $100 left, I'd have some pretty serious losses. This actually happened to me on my last trip. I played $3-$6 limit poker, which you can do forever with $100.

    Since you stipulate night, (mine was during the afternoon) I'd just do what I do at night, which is hang out with my wife.

    well, one time i did turn $200 into 25k, so i guess i would try to repeat that result. :) it wasn't my last $200, but i didn't pull any more money out, so it might as well have been.

    I would keep it in my pocket and buy myself something when i got home.

    That way the sting of the money you spent ion vegas wont hurt so bad because you will actually have something to show for it.

    That's pretty much what I'd do. Unless there was one of those electronic craps games. You can bet a buck on the pass line and 100 would go along way.

    I'd start thinking about that piece of jewellery I saw and decided against buying. And then I'd justify going back and buying it. Jewellery vs Gambling....sorry man but jewellery wins every time.
