I've heard that all gaming areas must be open to the public but I'm a little unclear on how the VIP lounges and swim-up blackjack tables work with these laws. The private VIP rooms I'm less interested in because I'll never play at that level but going to Caesars Palace or Tropicana to play in the pool sounds fun and I might make time for that during my trip this weekend. I know Tropicana charges non-guests $10 to access the pool, so maybe that covers them. "All are welcome, you just have to pay." What about Caesars? I don't think you can just pay for access to the pool area. Any info on how this works considering the public gaming laws in Nevada would be great!
