Hi From Amy In Vegas! – I’m newsletter Assistant Editor Amy Rayner-Cooley. Busy times here in Las Vegas. Last weekend was a huge sports weekend. We had the big Canelo vs. GGG 2 fight, the first preseason Vegas Golden Knights game, and three NASCAR races. VGK tickets continue to be super-hot. If you are going to be in town and want to catch a game, or if you are planning a trip to see your team play our team, we suggest you act sooner than later.
We have awesome seats at Vegas Golden Knights Tickets. I didn’t say cheap. (The demand is high). I said AWESOME!

This Issue’s Comped Insider Tip – Every issue, we’re going to comp you one tip from the couple-of-hundred we have neatly organized for our paid members.
While Uber and Lyft have grown very popular, many of you are still taking cabs. Either because you are not doing ride-sharing yet, or one is there and ready to go instead of waiting for Uber. Unfortunately, Las Vegas taxi drivers continue to long-haul people (take people the long way).
What you need to know is that the way to report this has changed. You used to simply call a phone number and complain. Now, you need to visit the Nevada Taxicab Authority website, download a PDF form, and submit it via snail mail or email.
For our paid subscribers, (Publisher) Ted Newkirk goes into the details of how to make sure you always have the info you’ll need to make a complaint, and how (and when) to deal with the driver when you get long-hauled. We also remind our paid members how to virtually guarantee getting anything you left in a cab back within minutes. (Not hours, or never).
Don’t think it won’t happen to you. The excitement of Las Vegas makes people forget things in cabs all day long.
As always, access to everything in our membership area is instant and we take major credit cards. We’re so sure you’ll be a happy member that we continue to offer a full 60 day money-back guarantee. How can we be so certain? We’ve had exactly three people ask for refunds in three years.
Hope you are enjoying this issue!

Generally, video poker has better long term theoretical odds than slots but you have to learn how to play it. You must find and play only machines with the best pay tables and learn the strategies well enough to get close to realizing the best odds you can find. Though skill will improve your chances of winning, luck is still involved.
