Plunger, Flippers, Bumpers and Slingshots – The Pinball Hall of Fame

Did you know just a short drive from the strip, just east on Tropicana Ave, sits the Pinball Hall of Fame?  Don’t let the name fool you, this isn’t a boring walk through the history of pinball. This is a working pinball arcade! No entrance or parking fees here. Drive up and park, turn your dollars into quarters, then walk the isles in awe at all your options. From the early days of pinball to the latest and greatest, so many options wait.

With this being said don’t expect much glitz as this is a diamond in the rough and I hope it stays this way. The building is plain Jane with a banner announcing the name. Much like the outside, the inside is bland by appearance but what it contains is what matters. Along with pinball, some old school arcade games can be found. The cost per game is regular quarter play and machines run from a $.25 to $1.00 per game, with most being $.50. I cashed in $4.00 and played for a while, enjoying every minute of it. Pinball Hall of Fame

Tip: Not an easy walk from the strip, drive or take a cab.

If you’re in anyway a fan of pinball, do yourself a favor and visit, you won’t be disappointed.

Table games? How do you play? You can learn!


Gaming Lessons

Originally uploaded by scottyvegas

Want to play table games such as blackjack or craps but don’t know how? Many casinos offer daily lessons on how to play these as well as others. Don’t worry if your hotel/casino doesn’t offer lessons as anyone can take lessons regardless where they’re staying.

After the lesson many casinos give you a coupon good for a free $5.00 bet or give you a matching bet coupon. Better yet learn to play before you arrive in Las Vegas. There are many casino software titles you can buy at your local software store that will teach you the ropes and allow you to play without losing your shirt.

I personally own many titles by Phantom EFX.

Bodog.com is a website that allows you to play for fun on a variety of casino games without installing any software or signing up. This site has a lot of useful information to offer. Game quality is very good but slow at times.

Wondering about casino games odds or want to spend a few hours getting lost in numbers? Check out Wizard of Odds, I highly recommend this site. It addresses many myths about gaming with proof.
