The Las Vegas Casino Atmosphere

Although most casinos in Las Vegas will try to distract you with a theme, the atmosphere in each is pretty much the same. Central to the location, you will find a large open floor space packed with tables of various types and slot machines in every nook and cranny. You will find bars and pubs surrounding this area; the sports book in most locations, and the nightclub. At any given time of the day or night, this area is alive and buzzing. Not that you will know what time it is because there are no clocks.

You will experience crowds at any casino whether it is a local place or a mainstream Strip location. Gambling is a booming business, and it’s no wonder when you can sit and watch people drop 20 after 20 or 100 after 100-dollar bills on the tables or in the machines. Individuals hunch over the tables and sometimes you can hear an occasional yell when someone is victorious in their gambling endeavors. There is every game imaginable. The variety includes: Craps, Pai Gow Poker, Roulette, and Black Jack. You can usually find Bingo and Poker in rooms off to the side and most locations will run games and tournaments at different times throughout the day.

Gambling means free drinks! Whether you are at a table or a slot machine, a cocktail waitress is never far. As long as you are dropping money in a machine or on a table, you are entitled to all the free drinks you desire. It is always a good idea to join the slot clubs if you are planning to do a lot of gambling. By doing so, you can earn points toward free meals, hotel rooms, spa treatments, and more. It’s free to join, and the benefits are real and endless. You may even get a free souvenir for signing up.

All in all, you’re going to find a fun environment on the casino floor. Everyone has a drink in his or her hand, and they are playing games to win money. What more could one ask for? In some places, the festivities are interrupted by the occasional free show. These normally last about 15 minutes and break up your gaming day very nicely. In any casino, you’re going to find an easy environment to blend into whether you are a seasoned gambler or a beginner. Remember that the dealers are your friends and willing to offer helpful hints because when you win, they expect a decent tip. It doesn’t take much effort on your part to enjoy the Las Vegas experience.
