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 Strip Maps

Last update: October, 2019.

I drew you not just one, but two different maps of the Las Vegas Strip.  Take your pick.  Both maps are to-scale north-to-south, but not so much east-to-west.  By the way, mine are the only Strip maps that show both buses from the airport.

Maps from other websites

If you don't like my maps, here are some others I found.  Some of them are quite dated, though.

Other Maps of the Strip

  • 3D map with little buildings (2019).  This is the very best map of the strip, which I wish I'd been clever enough to make.  Each casino is depicted with a small drawing of its building, making it really easy to understand.  It doesn't show the monorail stops, but here's a similar strip map from the Monorail company which does.  The only downside of these maps are that they're wide rather than tall, and hard to view on phones, even if you turn your phone sideways.
  • Wizard of Vegas (2013).  This is the second-best map of the strip, another one I wish I'd been clever enough to think of making.  Each casino is depicted with its logo, making it both visually interesting and easy to understand.
  • Las Vegas How-To (2019).  It's decent enough.  Their best idea was putting circle markers next to the labels so you can see exactly where the casinos are.  I used that as inspiration to make the first map above.
  • La Epic Club Crawls (circa 2018).  If you like simple and easy, you're not gonna do better than this one.
  • Hot Mama's map (circa 2018).  Any description I type wouldn't do it justice, you have to see it.  Visually awesome, I'm a fan.
  • CheapoVegas (2013).  Their soft design was the inspiration for my second map, above.
  • Vegas Today & Tomorrow (2011).  A dizzying buffet of maps.  Take a look at the Strip with construction since 2003 highlighted in green, or see a color-coded map of which companies own which casinos.
  • Historical Map (2007).  Shows not just what hotels are on the strip, but which ones used to be there.

Vegas properties are big.  Sometimes you'll need a map to navigate inside the casino!  You can see such maps at Vegas Casino Info.

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.
