International Travellers to New York City

The first requirement of international travel is the Visa, which generally gives non-citizens clearance to enter USA and remain there within specified restrictions. However, USA also has a Visa-Waiver program which allows citizens of certain countries to travel to USA without a visa, when they meet certain requirements, under U.S. laws. So international travellers and tourists (i.e. non-residents) to the United States can travel without visa (if they come under the purview of the Visa Waiver Program) or they will have to necessarily apply for a visa for the course of their trip.

 Las Vegas Gambling Tips

Tourists should know about a few things about Las Vegas casinos, betting games, how to play and other aspects about gambling in Las Vegas.

• Playing against locals Tourists should know necessarily if they sit down to play at a table where the dealer greets everyone at the table by name, then they should leave; these players are locals who play daily and make their living off poor chumps like unsuspecting tourists. Tourist should play against other tourists, especially drunk ones! Tourists should head to poker rooms around 3 AM, use the time change to their advantage, or try playing at the Venetian. The clubs are clearing out and the games are usually tourists vs. tourists.

Drinking cheap at the Wynn Most tourists do not know this, but most Sin City casinos serve free booze and alcohol to all gamblers, and one does not necessarily have to sit down at a $200 blackjack table for them.

The Best Places to Gamble

For the penny pinchers If tourists have this big urge to gamble but are stuck with a bank account that does not match, it is still possible for them to have hours and hours of sun on limited funds. Tip: If tourists want to gamble on budgets, the games of Bingo or keno usually make money last longer.

• Gamble like a local at Fremont Street If tourists want to gamble like locals, then the locals’ casinos on Fremont Street is THE place to go. Also known as downtown, Fremont Street hosts all classic casinos such as the El Cortez, Four Queens and the Binion’s. While they are not as fancy as their Strip counterparts, they are the cheapest games and gambling gigs in town. Tourists should check out local bars such as the Beauty Bar (local band bar), Insert Coins (video arcade bar), and the Mama (piano bar). Fremont Place is THE place to be for gambling, entertainment and inexpensive food.
