LOL. Vegas has to make money somehow, because of the need to give shareholder return. Look on the bright side. In Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands Casino represents one casino (forget about the one in Sentosa Singapore) that is apparently taking as much gaming revenue as all the vegas casinos now combined. For a Singaporean to enter the casino in their own country, they have to pay S$100. That's about US$70 (foreigners don't need to pay. Singapore doesn't mind the tourists losing). Rooms? Start at US$300 usually. You're lucky if you get comped rooms at all (you're rated play would need to be significant). I love the variety that Vegas offers in terms of hotels and rooms, however I always stay at the same casino due to my host and the fact that I'm comfortable with staying in the same type of room and venue every time I go to Vegas. Visiting so many other hotels however is exciting and when friends are all spread out across the town, I love the difference that each place has to offer. I still look forward to every Vegas trip, win or lose (and it's pretty much always the latter as the time spent in the town really burns you through the house advantage).
