    I need to set up 5 days of hitting 4 to 5 casino's , all off-strip ... Starting point is South Point Casino ....

    Of course trying to focus on casino's that usually hold there own on video keno / video poker / slots ...

    For example

    4 or 5 casino's in the North Las Vegas area ...with the last casino going back towards South Point ...

    Another could be down town area ... anyone know how hwy 15 is ?? I heard construction ?

    Appreciate any help .... Thank you !!!

    You could add Red Rock Casino after Suncoast. Maybe The Cannery (north) to the top of the list.

    If you are going to do this, you really should look into investing in the ACG and/or MRB. The gambling coupons are great, but almost every one you have listed will also have some kind of food coupon as well.

    If you are going to do a casino run like this, you might as well make it a coupon run also!

    Looks like fun to me, I hope you enjoy the adventure!

    I highly recommend Joker's Wild for good gambling and even better hot dogs and Eureka for good gambling and great vittles at Fat Choy.

    On Boulder Hwy you can get a great breakfast (2 eggs, 2 bacon or sausage, 2 toast, hash browns) for $1.49 at the newly remodeled Klondike Sunset (Boulder Hwy & Sunset Rd). They also have good vp tables. Also on Boulder Hwy you can get the great shrimp cocktail ($1.99) at the Skyline just north of the Klondike. The Skyline has great vp...in fact they have good 9/6 JoB with a decent progressive.

    The Fuego Steakhouse at Fiesta Henderson is great - and there is a 2/1 entrée coupon in the MRB. Their entrees include soup or salad, veggies and choice of starch (rice, potato, etc). Great value. And their popovers are amazing.

    Local friends of ours really like the Fiesta Rancho buffet. We haven't tried it yet.

    Action Jaction: You don't know what the ACG or the MRB are! Oh, my gosh! They are such a great time. You buy the ACG (American Casino Guide) at any bookstore for $18.00 and you buy the subscription to LVA (Las Vegas Advisor) at www.lasvegasadvisor.com for about $38.00. The subscription to LVA includes them sending you a coupon booklet called the MRB (member's rewards booklet).
    The coupons in these booklets will easily save you $200 in free/match play and 50% off on meals and stuff.
    I find one of the most fun things to do in Las Vegas is to drive around the city playing off all the free slot play and table games coupons. If you have really really bad luck you can end up only winning about $50 but usually it comes in between $200-300. On top of the cash there are tons of 2:1 entrees, 2:1 buffets, 2:1 drinks, 50% off buffets or entrees if you're on a solo trip. It's just such a pure money-maker for a tripper that likes to drive around the city...and see so many of the places you are already interested in.
    You can see a list of the coupons at the websites.

    Definitely hit up Red Rock and, if you need a break, the canyon is worth the drive. Feast buffet is a great deal for breakfast in particular. Another great value for food is the diner at Arizona Charlie's on Decatur. As a video keno player, my experience is that most any locals spot is going to have a good selection with fair pay tables. Orleans is a good choice.

    Boulder Station is a Locals casino that's fun to visit. They actually have 9/6 quarter jacks or better. Many of their card games start with $5 limits. You have to love that! Their buffets are very reasonable and tasty. The breakfast buffet is only $5.99 with the Boarding Pass. Friendly and helpful employees!

    If you wanted to try something really different one night, you could take the drive north for an hour up to Mesquite. It's a charming little retirement community town with a VERY different vibe from Vegas and 3 decent casinos, Casa Blanca, Eureka and Virgin River. Eureka has 1 cent, full pay, 100 line video poker that you won't find anywhere in Vegas and is a lot of fun. The slots pay well too from what I've seen.
