Today we will bust the 3 most popular Las Vegas casino myths. Before you next trip from Canada to Sin City make sure you remember these tips.
When someone refers to Vegas in their travels, the picture that comes to mind is almost always about the magnificent casinos splattered throughout the city. No one even stops to marvel at the various sights in their surroundings. It’s like they are totally hooked to the sparkling lights emerging from the recently renovated edifices. Here are the top 3 myths that have haunted the Vegas residents for quite some time.
1. Gambling Dens are all that Matter: Let’s face it, the two things that come to mind when someone says ‘Vegas’ are a grand casino with their captivating casino games, and scantily clad women ready and waiting to be swept off their feet. The Strip is not all that there is to the city. If you haven’t yet admired the geographical beauty of the place, you are missing the best parts of Las Vegas big time. There’s the sprawling expanse of the Red Rock Canyon, the snow covered tips of Mont Charleston, and the shimmering waters of Lake Mead. If you are up for a four hour drive, you can always visit the beach.
2. Las Vegas is Nobody’s Home: Do you think that the people employed by the casinos simply commute to the city every day? While the Strip is the working abode of millions, there are several residential buildings a few blocks away from it. The Las Vegas Valley itself houses close to 2 million folks. And yes, family life is as common in the city as the drunken gambling one.
3. The Machines are All Rigged: While the well-known phrase, ‘the house always wins’, may be true, there are hundreds of people who win every single day. It’s just that millions more turn up to try their luck in the most happening city in the world. Given the odds, the house is bound to win by the end of the day.
