Must Do in Vegas! Do you have a special Vegas gambling ritual that must be fulfilled every trip? Is there a sure fire number you bet that on that never lets you down? While browsing the forums I have noticed a lot of talk involving certain slot machines (e.g Cleo 2!) or an individual's favorite gaming strategy that is being used by other players for games (e.g. Pay Triple's Roulette!) and I thought it would be fun to consolidate some of the favorites into a single thread. Since most of these favorites are referenced or mentioned throughout many different threads or have not yet been shared, I have decided to (be lazy!) ask for folks to provide some of their favorite strategies or special slots/tables/etc. for games they like to play with the intention of consolidating and possibly putting together a VMB Member's Bucket List / Scavenger Hunt for gaming in Vegas. I've listed some of the main games to start out with and included a few examples below but that is just for reference. What I would like to see is differing personalized strategies, traditions, superstition, that you have incorporated into your trip and find out how it came to be. Baccarat - Negative progression betting, Player/Bank/Player, etc. - what is your weapon of choice when tackling the tables? Craps - There is a lot of various ways to play craps - but what is your favorite strategy or place to play and why? Do you have a favorite shift/location where the dealers are great and you enjoy your time.. do you have places you prefer to avoid? E.g. For years now when my college buddies and I reunite in Vegas we always try to visit Margaritaville for $5 dollar craps once on our trip. Everyone has posted a winning session on every trip with me being the exception on one out of 5+ visits. It's considered our good luck table.. Non-standard Table Games - Do you enjoy playing any unique table games that might have been featured in Vegas Vacation's 'special' casino? If so, what is it and where? E.g. For me it was a fun table game that Harrah's used to carry called Triple Shot. You would place 3 bets and go against the dealer in 1 card Casino War, Blackjack, and finish with 5 card Poker hand all with a single deck. High HA but it was an absolute blast to play. I don't believe it exists anymore.. Roulette - Do you always play a certain way or special number? What is your favorite strategy or number and why? E.g. When I'm in the mood to really gamble (or rather, give my money away!) I love to play the row of 3s and play for a couple of back to back big hits. Really curious to see other's strategies (17 and 20, anyone?). Slots - What is your favorite slot and do you have a favorite machine? E.g. Slots were never a big game for me but growing up my family loved to play Wheel of Fortune and I always enjoyed watching the featured spin on the machine. Occasionally I throw in a $20 to play for a spin but never play for long. I would definitely like to take a shot at some of the favorites and from what I have seen on the boards Cleopatra II and Buffalo are a couple of popular ones. Table Games - Ultimate Texas Hold-em, Let it Ride, Three Card Poker, Pai-Gow Poker.. What is your favorite and why? Video Poker - What is your favorite game type, machine or place to play and why? Note: For locations of machines with best payouts for VP see here: For best bartops in Vegas with VP see Tringlomane's awesome thread here. E.g. My buddy and I will be incorporating VP Golf into a bartop crawl trying to visit many locations. He is better seasoned with the rules so will include those later on once I have them.
