Reason I like Bovada #3:

One-stop shopping

Let me share my experience at another online casino whose name I won't mention:  I wanted to try out their free-play games, and they made me sign up for an account.  That was annoying, just for free-play, but actually most casinos make you register, so they can annoy you by email to pressure you into depositing real money.

I didn't get to choose my own username, they assigned one, and it was long! An astounding twelve digits of mixed numbers and letters.  There was no way I'd be able to memorize it, I'd have to write it down.

After trying out the free-play games I decided to deposit money and play for real.  And guess what? I had to register a separate account to play for real.  They assigned me a brand-new twelve-digit username.  Great.

Shortly thereafter they started offering play-in-browser games.  That's convenient, so I wanted to get in on that.  Guess what?  Yet another username.

And guess how they handle they money they give you as a matching bonus on your deposit?  You guessed it, another account.

Okay, now let's fast-forward to Bovada: One account gets you everything.  And I mean everything.  Real money, fake money, bonuses, you name it.  I didn't get to choose my account name, but at least it's easy to remember.

And if you want to play for free with fake money, you don't even need an account at all.  For example:

Play for free, no B.S.
One click and you're in.

All in all, I think Bovada is the best bet for U.S. players.

Las Vegas Hall of Shame

Sahara Casino:  Suing a local blogger

The Sahara Casino becomes the inaugural member of our Hall of Shame for baselessly suing a beloved local blogger.  Scott Roeben runs the popular, funny, and fantastic blog "Vital Vegas", in which he gives you the scoop on what's happening in Vegas as only a true insider can.  But when Roeben published a rumor that the Sahara might be closing soon, the dickheads at the Sahara actually, literally sued him.

The Sahara can't win their lawsuit, and they know it.  They can't win because it's not libel to publish a rumor that you identify it as a rumor.  But even though Roeben will prevail, he's still gonna incur big legal costs to do so.  Sahara sued him for a relatively small amount ($15,000), probably figuring that he'd have to pay more than that to lawyers to defend the suit, so he would just settle.  Too bad for them, because Roeben says he's not backing down, a move we applaud.

We should note that Roeben's batting average is excellent.  If he publishes a rumor, that means there's a basis for it and/or the source is solid, and more often than not the rumor proves to be true.

This lawsuit hits close to home for me.  After all, like Roeben, I publish a website that shares info about Vegas and which is free to readers.  Frivolous lawsuits would make it impossible for me to do that.  So, if you enjoy reading websites like Easy Vegas and Vital Vegas, for free, then please think twice before you stay at the Sahara or spend any money there.  Aug. 18, 2020

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.

I like Bovada's practice games the best, because you can play 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 why Bovada is the only online casino that gets space on my site.  I hope other casinos will eventually start treating their visitors like human beings rather than walking wallets, but until they do, there's Bovada.  One click and you're in.
