Has anyone tried to take the airport shuttle to?
It is the cheapest option, but likely inconvenient.
Wanted casino competition in las vegas airport know how long to expect the trip there to be by shuttle 9-10am on a Saturday.
Thanks in advance for any help!
I wouldn't take the shuttle if you have casino competition in las vegas airport people.
Also w the location, taking the tunnel to the freeway is probably the way you DO want to go casino competition in las vegas airport />Very doubtful to find another couple going the same place.
That doesn't really work.
People grab their bags and go pretty quickly.
Don't sweat it so much!
Just grab a cab.
Any specific directions to give give the cab driver so I get the cheapest, most direct route?
From what I have read on these forums getting long hauled read more common place, especially for a first timer like me who knows nothing about the roads, etc in.
Also, what rate should I expect for the ride so I have an idea?
I wouldn't think you'd need to give instructions for this trip.
He'll take the tunnel and freeway I'm sure.
That would not be considered long hauling in this instance.
Price will vary depending on time of day w traffic on the freeway.
supervideoslots com did this exact route last week as I stayed at the Palms.
As the is located off strip, taking the tunnel and freeway is actually the best route to take.
That time of the morning your trip shouldn't take more than 15 minutes or so.
My advice would be the cab over the shuttle.
If you are like me, you will be excited about getting to your hotel and beginning your vacation.
A shuttle may take an hour or so by the time you wait for others to board.
We hope you'll join the conversation by posting to an open topic or starting a new one.

When I walked off casino competition in las vegas airport ramp into the airport and heard the musical, electronic sound of slot machines, a huge smile crept over my face.
Walking through the airport from my gate to baggage claim, I passed clusters of slot machines here and there and found myself in awe.
This has to be the most fun airport ever!
I mean, really, picture your typical airport experience.
You get to the airport early, as is recommended, and by some miracle, you zip through security quickly.
You still have an hour and casino competition in las vegas airport minutes until your flight.
Read the book you brought with you?
But if you read it now, what will you read on the plane?
That takes about 15 minutes.
But atyou can extend your Vegas vacation right up until the minute you board your plane by playing the slot machines.
I know I did.
Airport Slot Machines Where can I find slot machines at McCarran International Airport?
There are approximately 1,300 slot machines at McCarran, in baggage claim, the shopping areas, in terminals near gates—even in the car rental center.
Has anyone ever actually won playing slots at the airport?
Does that mean the slots are looser at the airport?
Conventional wisdom has long held that you should avoid playing slots at the airport because the payout is lower than average.
As with playing all slot machines, you should be prepared to lose, because you probably will.
Gambling should be a form of entertainment, like going to the movies.
Airport Slot Machines How do I get paid if I win or want to cash out?
As is the standard with most casinos these days, the slot machines at McCarran Airport feature TITO or Ticket In, Ticket Outmeaning when you cash out, you get a ticket.
There is one stationed at or near all slot locations.
Uncle Sam always wants his cut.
How long does it take to get paid?
Will I miss my flight?
There are ticket attendants on hand to pay you your winnings.
If you win a couple of hundred bucks, they can probably pay you quickly with the money they have on hand.
So it will take longer to get paid, and yes, you may miss your flight.
But if you won that much money, really, would you care???
How do you feel about playing the slots at McCarran?
Have you ever played there—and won?
I agree about not taking the time to play upon arrival.
However, if off las casinos best vegas strip was a Megabucks slot with a big jackpot staring at me I might drop a few dollars and play.
Just imagine winning that jackpot at the start of a LV trip!
My understanding is that Baltimore would have more slot machines than the Las Vegas Airport.
Withing time every airport will have slots.
Vermont,for instance, is extremely anti-casino.
But Casino competition in las vegas airport can see why other states might want to do that at their airports for extra revenue.
You are a captive audience.
If you love the slots that much, stay in a casino as long as possible and bring a book or a magazine or a tablet PC or a cell phone for the airport.
No drinks, no comps, and certainly tighter machines.
No decent VP tables.
That being said, about five years ago I left Vegas after a solo trip, sick with an annoying cold.
I stopped at a local grocery to buy some throat casino floor las vegas />I was not looking forward to 5 plus hours on the plane.
After my purchase I had 80 cents.
So, these grocery VP plays are terrible, but I lose all my change anyway.
Why not lose it here?
I could not lose.
I cashed out at about seven dollars.
Through security and waiting for my flight, my cold made me miserable.
Okay, I said to my self, I deserve a bit of pleasure.
I have this almost free seven dollars.
So I played a poor paytable VP and it just was very nice to me.
Payout was very quick, an attendant was close by and I had the money withing a few minutes.
I know the experiences in other airports are not as exciting click here it sounds in Vegas.
I hope you get a chance to some day.
When I win, I make a quick trip to the Duty Free store since I live outside the US for an extra treat.
Mostly, I am just getting rid of any leftover US bills.
Nowhere else in the world!
The ladies were standing around watching and telling me as I was on my bonus that I was going to win the progressive and sure enough I hit!!
Since they were watching it did not take them long to get the paperwork taken care of and cash in hand.
Hope for repeat this June.
However the machines at T2 were much better than T3….
Betty Boop Fortune Teller a fav and would like to see those types of machines at airport and more penny slots, not quarters and nickels…of course if was on a winning streak might have to delay my flight.
Ended that trip with a smile.
This year only had an hour as we were much smarter and only arrived an hour and a half casino competition in las vegas airport />You won at the airport!
I hear ya on the penny slots, Kelly.
Quarters casino competition in las vegas airport a bit rich for my blood.
In 2008 we flew to lv because we bought a house out there.
My mother told me we needed the closing cost money approx.
I borrowed some money an as we were leaving i hit 1k on the quarter machine four time the attendant was baffled she said she never seen anything like it.

Perhaps if the airport authority had sold the slot concession to the Chamber of Commerce there might be some sort of 'welcome to Vegas where you can really win' attitude of loose slots, perhaps not. Remember the money in Vegas is made at the hotels, bars, clubs and casinos, its not made at the airport. Why should airport slots be enticingly loose?

I spent quite a bit of time looking for an online casino with better-than-average odds, and the result is Bovada.
Let me first tell you about the competition, though.
Most online casinos are too greedy when setting the odds on their games.
They think they'll make more money by setting the games tighter, so the player has less chance of winning, but they're wrong.
They're going to lose the same amount of money no matter what, the only question is how long it takes them to do so.
And when they play at a tight casino and lose quickly, they're less likely to return.
A casino which offers good odds will make just as much money as a tight casino, because the players will usually gamble away whatever they deposit anyway, no matter what the odds.
The only difference is that with better odds, they'll get to play longer before they go bust.
And that means they had more fun in the process, and they're more likely to return.
They offer games with good odds, knowing that if your money lasts longer, you'll be a happier, loyal customer.
Try their blackjack for free.
One click and you're in.
Taxis in Las Vegas Sample fares, How to not get ripped off, how much to tip, and more April 2019 Yes, taxis are still a thing Uber and Lyft are still far away from killing off taxis.
By the end of 2018, taxi ridership had decreased only 15%.
Taxis in general I generally boycott the Vegas taxis because many most?
When I usually prefer not to subject myself to a cab.
If I do take a taxi and my driver runs reds lights or drives recklessly in other ways, I don't tip and I tell them why.
For those who want to take taxis in Vegas, here's what you need to know.
First, don't expect to pay by credit card.
Some accept cards, but some don't, because the Taxicab Authority.
If you want to pay by card, ask before getting in read more cab whether that's okay.
Know that you can't voyage casino las vegas download taxis from the street!
This isn't New York.
That's why they're passing you by.
Taxis aren't allowed to stop on the street and they don't want to risk the ticket for doing so.
Besides, there's good reason for not stopping on the street -- there's no extra space on the sides of the Strip and stopping there would clog up traffic and run the risk of the taxi getting rear-ended.
To get a taxi on the Strip, go to the nearest hotel and get casino competition in las vegas airport the taxi waiting line.
If there's a long line and a lot of traffic, walking or taking the bus could be faster.
If you're not on the Strip, you can hail a taxi on the street as long as there's a parking lot or driveway they can turn into to pick you up.
Common problems are the cabbie "long-hauling you" taking a longer route in order to jack up the fareor steering you to some club you didn't want to go to, because the cabbie gets a kickback from the club by taking you there.
We'll cover these in more detail later on.
If a cabbie is talking on a phone, I'll ask them to stop while they're responsible for my safety, and I recommend you do the same.
Studies have shown that -- even if they're headset phones.
You're required to wear a seatbelt in a Vegas taxi, though in reality few do.
You can't drink alcohol in the cab.
You used to be able to, but the law changed.
If you want to make a complaint to the company or the taxicab authority, it's useless without a cab number.
Also, if you leave something in the cab like your phone or camerahaving the cab could help you get it back though it's not guaranteed -- your item might be stolen by a subsequent passenger or even by a rogue cabbie.
All cabs are equipped with cameras by law, but the images are downloaded only in the case of crimes.
Incidentally, I read one case where a cab company refused to let the customer see the video so they could find out who took the phone the customer accidentally left in a cab.
The company said it wasn't their problem.
It's cheaper to take the bus, which I cover on the.
And during peak times taxis aren't any faster, if you have to wait over an hour to get one.
From the airport, many cabbies will try to take the tunnel because it's longer and increases the fare.
They might say there's a "big accident" or "construction" on the regular route.
Make sure to tell your cabbie not to take the tunnel.
Avoid getting long-hauled Vegas cabbies are notorious for taking you the long way to jack up the fare.
Of course they're required to take the most direct route, but they'll use a couple of tricks to get you to give them permission to take the longer way.
The most common is to ask you, "Do you want to take the fastest way?
Another trick is to ask you something like, "Do you want to take the boulevard or Paradise Road?
And sometimes, cabbies will take you the long way anyway without getting your permission.
But long-hauling isn't as terrible as it sounds.
First, going the long way might actually get you to your destination faster, because the speaking, steve wynn casinos in las vegas does on the Strip is often gridlocked.
Second, the longer route could actually be cheaper, because when the Strip is gridlocked you would have been hit with waiting time charges.
So don't obsess about long-hauling too much.
There are worse things in life.
Before the economy tanked, it was easy to get mad at cabbies for long-hauling, but these days it's not so simple.
Some cab companies actually pressure their drivers to scam their passengers, or risk getting fired.
In a city with 14% unemployment, many otherwise honest folks are desperate to hold onto their jobs and may cave to the pressure.
Many cabbies are honest people and are really stressed out that they have to choose between cheating their customers and putting food on the table.
And even if the cabbies don't get heat from their bosses, the temptation to cheat is still there, because these casino competition in las vegas airport cabbies aren't making squat unless they do cheat.
It's easy for a cabbie to go an hour or two with only one fare.
So while I certainly don't condone long-hauling customers, it's not at the top of my list of complaints, given the unique nature of the economy.
Topping my list is driving dangerously.
Because of the pressure to long-haul in a bad economy, I abandoned my plan to take a bunch of trips from the airport, pretending to be a first-time tourist, and seeing what companies long-hauled me the most.
Maybe I'll revisit that idea once the economy improves.
So let's talk about long-hauling from the airport to your hotel.
If they take the tunnel, you got long-hauled.
If you're going to any Strip casino, make sure your cabbie takes Swenson or Paradise and then heads straight west to your hotel.
Swenson isn't onbut it's parallel to Paradise, just east of Paradise.
If you're going downtown, taking the tunnel will increase the fare because the route is longerbut because you're taking the highway you'll get there a lot faster.
Wherever you're going, to see about how much your ride should cost.
Fares assume you don't take the tunnel.
Once you're at your hotel and you want to go somewhere else, avoiding longhauling is tricky.
First, if there's tons of traffic on the strip, remember that going the long way could actually be cheaper because you probably won't get hit with waiting time charges.
And even if you don't save any money by going the long way, you might save some time.
The problem is that the cabbie may ask you whether you want to take the "faster" way every time, even when it's not faster.
It's hard for you to know whether the long way is really faster or not.
But here's a rule of thumb: If your trip is more than two miles long and it's between 5pm-11pm weekdays or 1pm-midnight on the weekend, then the longer way could be faster.
If you're having a hard time making up your mind, ask, "How much time will it save and what will the total fare be?
And of course, if the fare turns out to be higher than the cabbie suggested, you can tip less accordingly.
Finally, don't let the cabbie know it's your first time in Vegas.
Be suspicious if it's the first thing they ask you.
If they do ask, lie.
If you're riding in the front, and this wouldn't embarrass you, you can also make sure the cabbie sees you writing down the cab number.
That helps keep rogue cabbies honest.
Getting sold like cattle Casino las vegas get kickbacks from clubs and restaurants by taking you there.
So that's why your cabbie might be insistent that he take you there.
When I asked one cabbie to go to a certain restaurant, he actually said, "Oh, that place isn't so good.
We'll go to this better restaurant I know instead.
I had to insist on my original destination, and at the end I didn't tip, and I let him know why.
When you ask to go to a certain place, be aware that your cabbie might actually falsely tell you that it burned down or that it went out of business.
If that happens, then look at the bright side: You'll still get to your destination because you'll insist that you go there anywayand when you see that it's still in business, you'll save money because you don't have to tip.
In fact, the strip clubs pay cabbies so much that sometimes cabbies even bribe their passengers, by casino competition in las vegas airport them a free cab ride and a few bucks if they'll go to some certain strip club.
Of course, if you want to go to a strip club and aren't particular about which one you go to, you can milk this to your advantage.
More on this from the.
An attorney did an experiment with hired actors and confirmed the problem.
Hotel doormen are in on this action, too.
These are the guys who provide the useless service of holding the door open for you as you get into the cab.
Before the taxi pulls up they'll ask where you're going, and if it's a place that offers kickbacks they might pull you out of the taxi line and put you in a free limo, with the limo driver giving a kickback to the doorman, and the limo driver getting a bigger kickback from the club.
Finally, taxi companies have been think, casino plaza las vegas can of not taking customers to the clubs which refused to pay the bribes.
Taxi fares Las Vegas taxi rates are the same for up to five people though most taxis seat a maximum of four.
So if you've got four people in your party, it will probably be cheaper than the bus or a shuttle.
Below are the current rates, as of October 2010.
And here's a link to rates at the in case my page gets outdated.
You'll pay more when there's lots of traffic because then you'll get hit with the waiting fee.
How much to tip I suggest at least 15%, rounded up to the next dollar.
Note that you're not tipping because of the great service you got, you tip because cabbies don't make squat otherwise.
Now, if your cabbie ran red lights or was otherwise reckless, or if your cabbie long-hauled you or tried to steer you, feel free to not tip and tell them why you're not tipping.
But as long as my driver wasn't dangerous and took a direct route, I always tip even if the service was nothing special.
In Vegas, all cabbies make a percentage of the meter often ~40% This differs from most other places where the driver effectively rents the cab from the cab company, and is in the red at the start of every shift.
In Vegas there's no renting, the cabbies just get a cut of the meter.
And that's it -- they don't get any kind of hourly wage in addition.
Cabbies also pay for some or all of the gas.
So it's tough for them when it's slow and they manage only one trip every hour or two.
Incidentally, cabbies do pay taxes on their tips.
In fact, the IRS assumes cabbies get a certain amount of tips, so cabbies pay taxes on those tips whether they actually receive them or not.

Nevada Taxicab Authority This government agency sets rates and regulates the taxi industry.
You can make complaints about cabbies there.
Note that your email address isn't safe with them.
I used a unique address for the complaint I made to them I didn't use that address for any other purposeand after I sent my complaint about a reckless Vegas cabbie, the spam started coming in.
It could have been a rogue employee selling addresses, but it also could be that their systems aren't secure and spammers just stole the address.
For whatever reason, I'm glad I used a disposable address when I wrote to them -- and you should too.
Cabbies online Many Vegas cabbies have websites or blogs.
Of interest is his case about being convicted of picking up passengers on the street which isn't allowed in Vegas.
He made a valiant and eloquent attempt to show that he didn't violate the letter of the law, but was ultimately unsuccessful.
This blog is nearly illiterate but it's certainly the most entertaining, telling stories of prostitutes and celebrities and whatnot.
Unfortunately it hasn't been updated since 2006.
