In 7 hours I will be embarking on my 14th trip to Las Vegas. Now that the dreaded 13th visit is behind me, should I expect better luck?

UPDATE...Vegas was not kind to us this time around. Though my unlucky 13th trip was already behind me, I didn't realize this was in fact my wife's 13th visit. Well, that's my excuse for our abysmal results this weekend. As expected, the wife sustained heavy losses at the poker tables (it was her first time playing live games, after all), but her usually good roulette luck came to an abrupt end, as did mine.

We left Sin City penniless, but not dejected; Trip #15 is already in the works for April.

Say hello to my brother for me, he lives there. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about your losses, friend. Perhaps the next trip will be better!

We'll see. It's shaping up to be more of a tour guide junket, i.e. showing family the highlights of the Strip. That means less time gambling, which I guess is a good thing.

What a bummer. There really isn't anything too fascinating, unless you are taking mom to see 40 Deuce?
That should be interesting.
Naploeon's at the Paris is good for jazz standards & cigars.
But other than that, unless you are going clubbing, I think the strip is a waste of space & 80% of the hotels need to be imploded.

There are a lot of developments on the Strip lately. Westward Ho was shut down, Bourbon Street is being dismantled, Riviera is apparently closing up shop for a makeover, Hooters takes over the San Remo next week, the Planet Hollywood renovation of the Aladdin is in full swing, and Harrah's is assimilating Imperial Palace.

For a low-roller like me, I guess things got a little worse overall, seeing as there are fewer cheap places to gamble on the Strip now. The 'Ho was a favorite. Rock bottom drinks and really cheap tables. I think the only super cheap outfit on the Strip now is Casino Royale.
