    So my local MGM property invited me among other players to "complementary Vegas trip" during Super Bowl weekend like 4nights 5 days (not entirely sure but 3 nights minimum) anyhow, room and foods are all comped I believe location is at Bellagio if not Aria (I believe a host is working in details) we just gotta pay plane ticket. Anyhow, I'm sure bottom line is we "have to gamble" I'm sure... but more question I have is what's like during Super Bowl weekend? Is it crazy busy? Never been there during the weekend..
    Any info would be appreciated!!!

    Pick a number for table stakes you are ok with. Others will chime in as to how high they go. Strip is sorta silly in times like these. If it is higher than comfortable go with v/p or slots as they don't change denomination. Good luck.

    What can you expect? Far higher than normal minimums on table games. SB weekend is one of the busiest times in Las Vegas.

    Are you talking about all over the strip hotels or just the bellagio or aria? So they are trying to capitalize on that weekend? I bet it is very crowed as well.. I don't know if I want to go argh..

    Yeah, I was hearing $100 min at times on the strip. It gets kinda nuts. But, I believe that downtown stays at $5 in most cases.

    Stayed downtown for the 2015 Super Bowl and the minimums didn't change (though I didn't go into the Golden Nugget). As a matter of fact, I was kind of surprised how not-busy it was downtown two years ago. I expected "crazy", and I got "normal weekend".

    I may be staying at Rio for this next trip (the only place in all of Vegas in which I could get a comp all weekend) but will probably play most of my time downtown, then move to South Point to watch the game.

    SB weekend is usually the third biggest weekend on the Strip in terms of crowds. Its also one of the two biggest high roller weekends of the year. So expect higher than usual minimums at the tables. Also, if you want specific dining, I would make reservations ASAP

    I have been SB weekend a couple of times and really didn't see much increase in table limits on the south end of the strip but I am mostly at NYNY or Monte Carlo for craps and roulette. There are definitely a lot more people though.

    Bellagio and Aria? I would be surprised if anything less than $25/hand at any time. Certainly wouldnt be shocked if $100/hand was pretty much the norm

    I'm staying at the golden nugget for SB weekend, expecting big crowds. I think downtown the minimums shouldn't really go much higher if at all. The strip is a whole nother animal tho, especially the ones with big sportsbooks and higher end casinos....

    Was at the strip for the last super bowl. Crazy busy. Lines everywhere you go. Table limits are higher than usual. But still had a blast.
