What's your daily budget? (A survey)

So I was curious what people budget for gambling when they go on a Vegas trip. I heard on the Travel Channel a while back (So my data MAY be a few dollars off - sorry to any of you who are sticklers for accuracy) that the average is $471 for the whole trip!!! That seems really low to me! For me, $500-$600 a day seems to do pretty well.

How about all of you? What's your daily total budget? What's your daily gambling budget?

I knew someone would say that, and that's a valid point. I was just curious what the everage for folks on this forum was. $471 seems low as an average... just want a second opinion.

Depends on what you intend on doing!

We rent a car and sight see by day, gamble by night.

We vacation for ten nights, eleven days.

We plan a grand a day, but as of yet, have never had to spend any where near that.

Our average, and this is off the top of my head, to include meals, souvenirs, gambling, drinks, tips, you get the idea, is under $350 a day. (Way Under!)(Last year we came home $1700 up from what we left with. Thats after buying and shipping many plants home, cases of wine, heavy bagage charges, etc.)

Hope this helps:)

Have a great trip:)

Hubby and I are going for a week in June. He gets $1000 and I get $1000. I will also have about $500 for meals, etc. He can't be trusted with that or we wouldn't have any money to eat with. Hopefully winnings will be added to these figures!! On our budget we are lucky we are going with this much.

€500 a day firstimer will be fine, unless you are a total idiot who spends the lot in 2 days.. Take your credit cards but leavee them in your room.

You will find it hard to spend $500 a day if ye dont gamble much.
