High Roller Status on a Middleclass Roller Budget

I'm heading to Vegas with a bunch of buddies here in a couple of months and most of them haven't been so I'm really looking to show them a good time. My question is, besides blowing ridiculous amounts of cash or being famous, how can I work the system and roll around like a boss? I know someone out there has the secret, what do I need to do/get/bring to get these guys what they want? I know that they are wanting to do several nightclubs and a couple of the pools (TAO, Wet Republic) and I'm not looking to wait in lines or spend much time with the general public. Please, please, please, hook it up! Tell me your secrets! Any kind of High Roller Tips/Tricks!

Contact a club host before you get there. The pool party hosts usually have connections to nightclubs too. Just buy bottle service and give a $100 handshake each time. You'll be treated very well.

Yup. Just get in touch with a club host. Check out jackcolton.com, get names of clubs you like and look them up on facebook. That page will most likely be managed by a club host. They usually are very nice. I did so twice, once for Tryst (Wynn) and Chateau (Paris) and got free entry and drink tickets for me and three other friends. It's easier when you are a group of females but if you get bottle service, you should be treated as well even if you are guys.

I hope that helps. Have fun!

"what do I need to do/get/bring to get these guys what they want?"

One word " Money" What do you think Vegas was built on? You're going fishing for Moby Dick with a minnow

If nothing else, set yourself up for benefits on future trips, by picking a hotel/casino you really like(including their club(s)), join their player's club, then spend most of your gambling dollars there, so they can track you. It's about building a relationship. You can even ask to be introduced to a host, toward you last day.

But low-rolling won't get the job done, at least the level you're going for.

You might consider the Palms.

Vegas is a town where cash is king. In order to roll like a boss you need to bring the cash.

Either that or have some level of fame. I had the opportunity to hang with someone who most people don't know but is famous in their line of work (not a reality or adult star). I don't want to identify the person but if your into their area of the arts you know who they are. Anyway it was an eye opening experience. Places want these people to hang around so they are treated in a way that most of us could never achieve. I have a number of good stories from that trip. Even bringing the cash will not get you the treatment these folks get.

Take 100k with you should be enough.

You want to "work the system so you can roll around like a boss?" Sounds like South Philly talk to me.

Generally, to get treated like royalty, you have to show Vegas you can spend like a king. In regard to the resorts' nicer dance clubs, for a small or large group you would have to purchase bottle service which will not come by cheap. Actually not just for bottle service, but also in consideration of table booths as well. For a large group, I'd be thinking in the ballpark range of $5,000 easily on up for the night, just for "one" club evening alone. You can attempt the $$ handshake, but you first better be sure you have an entourage of beautiful women in company alongside your buds; & be ready to hand the line host a hefty $$ (more than a shear $100) handshake based on the total number of folks to your party.

The line hosts (guys) show favoritism to groups of beautiful women; something which draws "the flies (the guys) to the honey (the beautiful ladies)" to these clubs in the first place. As an example, think of 11 lonely male buds (with your $100 handshake) altogether waiting 10th place in line while groups of beautiful & gorgeous females await in line (either ahead or past you bunch); who do you think the line host is going to pull from the line & allow entrance into the club first? And if you plan to have 11 beautiful women accompany 11 guys, you guys should highly expect to spend heavily on your ladies as well.

Otherwise, expect to stand in a long line of people (waiting to gain entrance inside) just as the little fish do.

10-11 guys?

First you'll need to divide your group into 2-3 smaller groups. Then each group of 2-4 guys will need to find a group of ladies and ask them if they want to enter the club together with you. Access will be faster but you may get turned down by the ladies.

Option two is the still divide your group into 3 smaller groups and each will enter the club at a different time, each group handing out a Benjamin to the doorman.

Option 3 is bottle service and for 10 guys, they'll ask for you guys to buy at least 4 bottles @ for at least $300-400 each but forget a seating for all ten of you guys together. These boots are for the whales, celebrities and the like.
