Hi, all! Long time lurker, recently decided to join this forum to participate in discussions pertaining to my favourite city in the world... Las Vegas! I absolutely love spending time in Las Vegas - not just as a hobbyist gambler, but also because there's always something interesting going on there. It's a great escape where people all seem to be merry and friendly, there's plenty of ways to relax and enjoy yourself, and best of all... it's in a part of the world where there's no bloody snow! (I'm from the north, eh?) I'm looking to make it more of a regular thing for myself. It seems that the average person views going to Las Vegas as either a one-time thing, or a true indulgence for big occasions such as bachelor parties, 40th birthdays, etc. Because of this, getting a $500 per night room at Caesar's and looking up reviews for the must-try restaurants are common practice for people to make the absolute most of their trip. I don't have this mentality. I'm not about staying somewhere fancy on the strip, having a sit-down meal three times a day, attending pricey tourist attractions, and "putting $100 in the slot machine and playing until it disappears". I like to think that I have a sense of how to "do Vegas" relatively inexpensively, between staying up in Fremont, having comped meals wherever I'm playing, and taking public transit to get places as opposed to taxis. However, I'm looking to really master the whole "doing it inexpensively" bit. Of course, the cost of the flight is a fixed thing that you can't really get around (though I've found that if I can get to Chicago, flights to Vegas well under $100 each way are actually very common). But what I'm looking to figure out is how to cut my daily expenses, so that I can spend more time in Vegas, with fewer fixed costs. I figure that the place to start is the hotel. I have heard of people getting comped rooms, but I haven't got a clue as to how to even start pursuing that. I mostly play blackjack/baccarat/roulette. Is there any general advice when it comes to the best way to get room comps, or the best properties at which to do so? I'm not picky at all when it comes to a room, just somewhere to crash, really. I'd appreciate any other insight when it comes to cutting daily expenses, such as how to get more comps for meals or show tickets.
