Best thing about Bovada:

Play for free
with no hassles

Most online casinos insult you with popups and spam, and they give you the hard sell even if you just want to try their free-play games.  Fortunately there's Bovada, which is the opposite.  That's the primary reason they're the only online casino I accept advertising from.

  • No registration required.  Most casinos let you play for free with fake money, but there's a catch: They make you register an account first.   That's not just a hassle: after you register you can expect them to badger you by email trying to get you to deposit real money.  But Bovada lets you play right away without forcing you to register an account.  Just close any registration boxes that appear, and then you can play without registering.  Here, try it.
  • Plays right in your browser.  If you'd rather not download the casino software to your hard disk, you don't have to.  The games play right in your web browser.  Nice.
  • Works on Macs.  The play-in-browser games are MacOS compatible!  Before Bovada, Mac users were pretty much out of luck for gambling online, even for free-play.  Not any more.

Bovada's not perfect, but there's no better site serving most of the U.S.

Largest Hotels in Las Vegas (most rooms)

Notes on data for # of rooms:

  1. Most other websites report the wrong figures for number of rooms.  One of them publishes bad data and everyone else copies them.  Wikipedia rarely shows a source for its room figures, and whatever figure it shows is usually wrong.  If a source shows an even number of rooms (e.g. 1500 for Virgin), it's almost certainly wrong.  (Virgin actually has 1504 rooms.)
  2. I use the best sources.  My source for properties of publicly-traded companies such as MGM, Caesars, Boyd, and Station/Red Rock are official SEC Form 10-K filings (recent as I type this in 2022).  For others, in this order, I take the first available: 10-K filing, hotel website, real newspaper/magazine, travel website.    Unless there's a lot of interest I won't go to the trouble of publishing source information.
  3. Room count for the Strip is accurate and up-to-date.  I plan to finish reviewing and updating room count for other areas this week.
  4. If a casino has multiple "hotels" in the same tower(s), I include those in the count.  For example, Mandalay Bay includes Delano and Four Seasons, and Park MGM includes NoMad. But MGM Grand doesn't include Signature at MGM Grand, since Signature is three completely separate towers.
  5. Almost no other website bothers to mention whether their count includes associated hotels.  They can't, because they have no clue how whatever site they're copying from tabulates the data.
  6. Circa trumpets "777 rooms" all over its website, but as of 3/22, only 512 are actually finished and open (which is the figure I use).  Come on, guys.
  7. In 2019 Binion's reopened its Hotel Apache, formerly with over 300 rooms, now 81 after remodeling those 81.  They're not gonna notify me if they ever open more rooms, so if you know that they have, please let me know.

Less smoky Smokier

Practice gambling with play money

Before you throw down your hard-earned cash in a casino, PRACTICE FIRST!  Learn the games with play money where it doesn't cost you anything if you lose.  Seriously.

You can play Bovada's games (below) right away without registering for an account.  Most every other online casino makes you give up your email address just to play the fake-money games — ugh.  That's the main reason Bovada is the only online casino that gets advertising space on my site.  (When you see the registration box, you can cancel it and proceed to the game without registering.)
