Hi I've been reading some of the posts on here for a while and have finally got the nerve to ask a question. In July I will be in Vegas to get married, there will be a small group of us and we are all newbies to Vegas and gambling. We will probably be playing on the slots and some of the guys will be going to the sportsbook. A couple of questions, is the sportsbook the same as going to the 'bookies' in England, and with the slots what is meant by a machine thats a dollar machine and $30 a pull, is it $1 a go or $30?? Looking forward to your replies if only to make Vegas a little less daunting and confusing.
