What shall I do? I am headed to Vegas for a tradeshow that will last a week. I know $100 is a bit anemic but with all the student loans mounting that is pretty much all I can muster for the time being. I am hoping that some of you guys might know a thing or two about gambling and may be able to give me a tip or two on how to turn that $100 into something more than $0 when I finally leave, and the idea of NOT gambling has crossed my mind, though quickly done away with.

Thanks and look forward to hearing from ya'll....

You have $100 for gambling or $100 to spend total? At least save some for food!

Yea, if all you have is $100 dollars for everything, don't waste it on gambling, as you are almost guaranteed to lose it. Save it for food and other stuff that you will need during the week. It aint much in the city of glamour.

get yourself a whole lot of quarters, sit at the slots and enjoy all the free drinks you'll get. remember to tip the drink whores though. if you don't then you won't be drinking for long.

Since I will be attending the tradeshow everything will be paid for by my company, except for my gambling venture. So I figured take an extra $100 and see what happens. KROC and I are on the same page, I figured Blackjack was the way to go, always double down on 11 and stay at 17, are there any other tricks of the trade that might be good to know? How about Craps? anyone got an idea on that one?

And thank you Mr. Shakey for reminding me that the hotel/casinos will not be treating me with the "Whale" treatment. Thanks for the comments guys....

I'll have to keep you informed just how good/bad it turns out.

if you want real advice...

get your nuts out of momma's purse, get to the bank and get AT LEAST $500. $100 won't get you anywhere unless you're gambling for "fun" in which case i'm sure there's a fisher price "li'l gambler" or something to keep you busy.

try to get an empty table. the dealers are so underpaid, they want you to win. usually if you're cool, they'll explain how to play the games and strategy, etc. make sure you tip them.

Mcringring,
That is funny since I'll be there for the McDonald's Worldwide Tradeshow. As for the allowance....I guess I could forego the student loans and the truck payment, and if My dog doesn't eat for a bit, and I am sure the credit card companies would be cool.....nah, maybe I should just stick with my original $100 and just turn it into $500. Optimism might just do it for me.

LiL Gambler, that made me laugh out loud, good one.

Maybe if you have so much to worry about, you shouldn't have bought a truck or gotten a dog.

Try to gamble during non peak hours when they lower the minimum on tables. I am usually able to make $20 last about 6 hours at the roulette table ($5 minimum) by playing odd/even and/or red/black. Build a little bank that way (you have 17/38 odds) and then expand a little. If you've never been to a casino, roulette is a very easy table game for you if you're a little nervous about sitting at a table as opposed to slot machines.

Don't gamble. Get yourself a decent hotel room, then spend it on the cheap brunches, and sit out along the road by McCarran and watch some nice crab landings.

The best odds in the casino for the player is the "dont pass" bet on the craps table.

Gambling is a game of odds...... The odds are always against you. ALWAYS.

So if you want the best odds put your money on the "Don't Pass" bar.

Craps is also the most exciting game in the casino. Most are scarred of Craps because they dont know how to play.

Look at the $100 dollars as the price of a ticket to a Broadway show, or a dinner at a great resturaunt. It's the price for the entertainment value. Kiss it goodbye because its the price of admission.

Remeber one other thing. If you do get lucky and beat the odds....walk away.... the longer you play the law of averages will take over.... and remeber.... the odds are in their favor.

P.S. The odds are different in every casino. The house sets the rules of the table.... minimum bets and so forth that control the odds of you winning. The big strip casinos offer the worst odds.

The best odds in Vegas are in the smaller casinos like Binyons. Thats where the hardcore gamblers go. They offer better odds to attract gamblers just want to gamble. The better your odds obviously the beter your chances of winning.

The odds for the table should be posted on a plaque at the gaming table.

Quarter slots are a joke........ PLEASE DON'T

Get in on a good craps game..... Pick up a paperback at the bookstore and learn to bet craps....

Quarter slots are for old ladies.....

I'd be embarrassed for you.......
