    I've never been to Vegas before, and I'm going for 4 nights (I wanted to go for 2-nights initially, but the person I'm going with insisted on 4).

    I'll start off by saying I'm not the most enthusiastic person when it comes to gambling, I'm essentially going just to get a taste of something new - hopefully I don't break my bank in the process lol.

    Anyways, if you've ever been to Vegas (or happen to live there); what are some things I should be looking out for? What are some fun things to do?

    I'm not a "club type" and I don't like gambling (that much).. should I just bite the bullet and book a flight somewhere else?

    Why are you going to vegas if you dont want to gamble or go to a club? exactly what else is there in Vegas other than shooting guns on a range and casinos and nightclubs...

    That's what I figured - I didn't think it would literally be "GAMBLING AND NIGHT CLUBS, DOOD!".

    Looks like it kind of is though..

    I wanted a locals point of view, they would know a lot more about it than I ever would (or would ever learn from a website).

    That way your vacation will earn you a nice ROI through all the badass shit you learn and the new connections you'll make.

    I worked at a massive (non-Vegas) casino for a few years. It was so much more than gambling/clubbing.

    Retail shops, restaurants, the hotels, people watching, architecture, events, experiences, etc.

    1. Enter casino. Go to the first roulette table.
    2. Put all you gambling money on the table.
    3. Move it to the red spot on the table.
    4. Wait until the ball stops.
    5. Exit casino.

    (Win or lose, it does not matter)

    Enjoy your 4 days Vegas!!!

    I lived there for almost 10 years, but I haven't been back in probably the last 3. It's normally cold and windy this time of year, but not bad enough to stop you from visiting.

    I never gambled, and I'm over the party lifestyle. All the action worth seeing in the city takes place on maybe 5 miles of one street. Just walking around it is enough to keep entertained.

    The most memorable (non filthy) thing about Vegas for me is the nature in the surrounding areas. Any direction you look up, there's a beautiful mountain range. While it may not be perfect hiking weather, at least it's not the summer heat.

    Red Rock Canyon is a 20 minute drive west, and full of breathtakingly beautiful hikes with a full range of skill levels. Mt, Charleston isn't that much further.

    Have an awesome time.

    When you go, stop by Margaritaville. They serve margaritas in these tall cups and holds like 3-4 margaritas in one. The price is the same as if you bought 3 or 4 margaritas, but you get to keep the cup! It's pretty fun to walk around the strip with it and get asked by other tourists where you got that awesome drink. But most importantly, it'll get you absolutely trashed drunk.

    I had a guest explain the always-on-top Roulette method like so:

    Bet a small amount of money on one color, let's say $20. If you win, great, you doubled your money. If you lose, double it and try again. Repeat until you win.

    So let's say for some crazy reason your 50/50 bet doesn't pay off until turn five. It would look like such:

    Bet $20, lose, total loss = $20.
    Bet $40, lose, total loss = $60.
    Bet $80, lose, total loss = $140.
    Bet $160, lose, total loss = $300.
    Bet $320, win, total win = $640 - $300 total loss = $340 total winnings.

    EDIT: Ah, it's called the Martingale system: http://vegasclick.com/gambling/martingale-betting-system.html

    Just remeber there is all so number zero there got the green color, so this is not profitable over a bigger sample.

    1. This is why most tables have limits.
    2. The system is faulty - remember that there is green also, and green means loss. So there is bigger chance to lose than to win.
    3. Only because 4 times there was black it dosent change anything in the universe, chance of getting another black is still 50/50.
    4. Only because you sometimes win with this is exactly as the same as you would win random betting.
    5. House always win.

    Why not? Just not your thing?

    I'm Canadian so the dollar is weaker than USD - gambling is sure to push me back a few thousand dollars lmao!

    EDIT: Thanks for all of the tips guys :)
