Las Vegas: A Real Place for Punters & Bachelors to Visit in Winter

Las Vegas. The first thing that comes in your mind is about gambling, fun, chilling out hook ups, etc. Thanks to the Hollywood movies and some of the popular television web series that revolves around the drug mafias of Vegas these days, portraying the picture of Vegas as a crime city where people running often after money, smuggled ‘coke’, hook-ups, etc. fantasies.

Well, some of these are exaggeration of course, which are shown for entertainment. But, one thing is a proven fact about Vegas. Those who really believe in becoming a ‘Richie rich’ in one night believing their fate, for them this is a place where every punters and bachelors love to visit in winter season.

There is myth that Las Vegas is the only place on earth where people turns either millionaire or a beggar in one night. It might seem unbelievable to know that Las Vegas is a place in USA where an economy is majorly dependent upon the tourists those who spend a major portion of their whole year’s revenue into gambling in some of the reputed casinos of this place. Those lucrative investments are the ‘turnkey’ factors for feeding the retail and the hospitality industry of this place.

Let’s take a better look into some of the reasons for which Vegas is a gambler’s paradise.

Exotic experience of Freemont Street

Freemont Street is one of those places of Vegas where there are a number of casinos. Most of them are located in the downtown area. Back in the 1989, most of the resort development in Las Vegas were outside the city. This affected the tourism industry a lot. That is why later most of the tourist engaging projects were started in downtown area for encouraging the tourists in this place.

Downtown casinos

Casinos are one of the major attractions of Vegas. Whether it poker, roulette or blackjack, a punter has ample of choices to fulfil every quench of thirst for gambling.

Unlike other casinos, in downtown most of the casinos are set up for attracting the tourists in every possible way it can.

In most of the casinos, there are huge passages for attracting the tourists. Once you put a step inside any one of those, there is a huge possibility of the world to go upside down when you see such huge jackpot machines installed in front of you.

Apart from them, if it is poker that attracts you, all you have to do is collect some of the convertible coins in exchange of the dollars and put them for trade.

Select any number inserted in the rolling machine in front of you and throw it by murmuring the name of your ‘lucky charm’, who knows it might be your lucky throw.

Las Vegas strip

Most of the casinos remain overcrowded in this place, with the tourists those who love to visit strip dances in the winter months. As the nights get more interesting with the gamblers bidding with a wish to make a fortune, the strippers set the entire casino on fire with some of their killer moves and hip movements.

During the festive seasons most of the casinos provide liquors for free till a certain amount. But if you need to fill your thirst a bit more you can purchase them easily.

Usually bachelors those who look out for sudden ‘hook ups’, ‘blind dates’, ‘relationship only for fun’, without any commitment, they take interests in the strip clubs.

Nothing can be much amazing than Vegas if you are either a punter or a bachelor and looking for living up the last days of a dying year.

City Center – The Las Vegas Project That Will Transform the City and Las Vegas Gambling

We heard all of the headlines everywhere. They gambling casinos in Las Vegas are losing money, the casinos in Atlantic City are also losing money and a lot of gaming centers nationwide are tightening up on their budget to get through the next year and a half of tough economic times. This budget tightening has also hurt the job market in these regions that depend mostly on gambling revenue to keep food on their tables, but throughout all this gloom and doom there is one company that still has the guts to bring a big project to Las Vegas and bring many jobs along with it. MGM spending $ 9.1 billion for its incredible City Center project which will go live by the end of 2009.

What is incredible about City Center is that it is virtually a city within a city. Whatever it you are looking for that you can do within the city whether it is shopping, dining, golf, sports or gambling you will find that you could do it all at City Center. The beauty of City Center is that you can also purchase combo rooms and lived there. It will be a city within a city that is capable of sustaining itself without much help from the outside.

All of this is coming at a time when a lot of analysts are predicting that the economic recession will probably subside in early 2010 and by this time city center will be completely finished and this will bring at least 12,000 new jobs in to Las Vegas. This new project and the new jobs that will be coming in should instantly get Las Vegas back on track to the economic booms that it was enjoying before the recession happened.

Now if you have some hindsight you would look more into investing into Las Vegas homes right now while they are very cheap and sellers can't even give them away. This new project will also bring in more of the upscale gamblers and visitors that Las Vegas is used to having in its town. This is a very exciting project that I have been waiting for for a very long time to finally happen.

Right now our job is to get by this recession and try to save a little bit more money but it's good to know that there are incredible projects like this in Las Vegas to look forward to the next time we planned our trip there sometime in the year 2010. The future of Las Vegas sure is looking fun
