Hi, OH and I are doing 10 days in Vegas in June. Airfare, 10 nights accom (5 nights MGM Grand & 5 nights Palazzo), transfers, shows and excursions will have been paid in advance. We're not big gamblers and certainly not high-rollers, so what kind of budget can we get away with?
I'd hope to bring about £1000 each (around $1500 at the moment), so we'd have $3000 between us for the 10 nights, around $300 per day. Is this feasible? I've heard people mentioning $50 blackjack tables, we certainly won't be betting that high.
Are there still gambling options for those of us who want to play low? In the UK, you can bet as low as £1 at a blackjack table, and play slots for 20p at the arcades. I'd have way more fun doing that than playing high. And do you still get comped drinks if you're not throwing big bucks around?
The way I see it, our $300 a day will cover drinks, dinners and any other things we want to do (seeing as the likes of Stratosphere tower, Battlefield, Goreatorium have been budgeted outwith the $3000). Will we still be able to enjoy ourselves on that amount?
