Las Vegas Casinos

Gambling's what this place is known for. If you come to town and don't pull an arm, hold some cards or toss some dice, we have to question if you really lived it up at all. And it's OK. If you're new to the scene, we have some tips for you.

Bet you didn't know this. When things got ugly during the Great Depression (mining was petering out, and people were leaving the state like barflies when the lights flicker), Nevada had a brilliant idea. They said: "Dudes. Stay. As of now gambling is legal. And guess what? So is divorce!" With two gems like that, who needed silver? Suddenly and forever after, Las Vegas was the promised land. Still today, you can gamble to your heart's content. And get divorced (and married) whenever you want too.
