    Hey everyone,

    Pretty stoked and have been really brushing up on my card/craps/roulette skills. This will be my 5th trip to Vegas, but my first where I can actually gamble!

    Here mainly to find stuff to do, and some recommendations to get an advantage before heading out!

    What did you do on your 4 previous trips before you were 21? and why would you torture yourself with trips then??

    Pace yourself and leave a good % of bankroll in the room and go downstairs with x amount for the day.Don't know how impulsive you can be but if your drinking you can let your guard down and especially a Roulette wheel will know somehow to never hit your number no matter how many times you have a chip on it.For HOURS....
    That said if your hitting your numbers,press the bets a bit but make sure to leave the table with a profit and take a little break. Best Wishes to ya.

    Ten "Advantage" tips:
    1. Get 'Player's Cards' everywhere you'll be gambling and use them.
    2. Understand and employ the proper 'basic strategy' for the table-games & any VP that you play.
    3. Set a session win-objective and loss-limit every time you sit down to play. Be disciplined enough to stick to it.
    4. After every third alcoholic drink, drink a bottled water.
    5. Do not allow anyone - even if she's drop-dead gorgeous - to part you with your money, unless it is your idea to do so.
    6. Never, ever chase losses.
    7. When you're about to check-out of your hotel, be sure to first ask the pit if they can take care of any of the room-charges for you.
    8. Never be too shy to ask a pit-critter for a meal comp when you've been playing for awhile.
    9. If you smoke, bring enough from home to get you though the trip... with tip, they're $10-to-$11 a pack at the casinos.
    10. Expect to win, but be prepared to lose.

    Have fun & good luck!
