  1. Anyone dumb enough to use an ATM in a casino deserves whatever charge applies. There are 2 places you ABSOLUTELY should never use an ATM and that is in a casino or a strip club. I go to LV a number of times a year (as well as over a dozen trips to other casino locations) and always take enough (usually $5000-$10,000) to cover my gambling. Also, have casino credit lines set up I can tap at not cost in both Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Finally, if you have a rental car or just take an Uber you can get to a bank that has an ATM at a reasonable fee (maybe no fee if your bank like Bank of America or Wells Fargo).

    Again, there are a lot of things to dislike about Las Vegas ($20 watered down cocktails, $25 overcooked burgers with fried $8 extra, higher limits, worse gaming rules, etc) but to draw the line at ATM fees is a little sad and crazy. Personally I get almost everything comped so don’t care about the costs. Heading back this Sunday to get in some action around the Super Bowl.

  2. Like everything else in Vegas, multiple normal price x .65.
    Vegas will get your money one way or another.

  3. When will Côte d’Ivoire be renamed? Ivory is no longer in favor except by poachers and the rich.

    Vegas has just gotten out of line: extortionate resort fees, poor to mediocre comps, very high and ever-increasing hotel rates, and just a “gotcha” mentality of nickel-and-diming really wears on you. Nowadays it’s tough to get free drinks while gambling at times, even at second tier casinos. Remember the cheap but fairly high quality buffet? Cherish that memory because there ain’t no such thing anymore. Value in Vegas is a thing of the past.
