Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – Well, the big news in these parts is that our NHL expansion team Golden Knights are headed to the Stanley Cup finals. Yes, yes, I get it. Hockey is a niche sport, and if you didn’t grow up around it, or you don’t live in an NHL city, you probably don’t care. I’ll have to admit — although I watched just about every game from the very first one here — I had a learning curve. I’m still trying to get used to having two halftimes!

However, they are our team. Born here in Las Vegas. For a transient city that so many dismiss as a plausible place to even live, it has done wonders for our community. Huge viewing parties drawing thousands of people have taken place outside the Red Rock, The D, and outside of the actual arena. (Due to the high-tech nature of the new arena, they can actually display the game on the side of the arena).

If you want to attend history, we have PRIME seats available for games in both cities. Note: I didn’t say they were cheap! This is a historic Stanley Cup finals. Head on over to Tickets.AccessVegas.com and see what is still available!

If the Golden Knights win the championship, sportsbooks are going to take a bath. The team was given odds of 500-1 chance to win it all before the season began, and plenty of people put money down. If nothing else, figuring the ticket would be a souvenir To put thing into perspective, a $20 bet at 500-1 will payoff $10,000. That is not a typo.

Must Do Before You Visit – As credit card companies continue to want to reduce their exposure to fraudulent charges, it is getting more and more likely that you’ll at least get a “Did you just spend this much in this location” text, if not having larger purchases declined altogether. (Plus, that text won’t do any good if you’re low on battery and have had to turn your phone off).

While seasoned travelers have been following this advice for years, we can’t overemphasize the importance of calling your credit card companies (the ones you’ll be using on the trip), and alerting them that you’ll be vacationing in a certain city on certain dates. It only takes a few minutes, and is far less of a hassle then just finishing a very expensive meal at one of our fine restaurants, only to be told your card is declined. (Which will result in you having to call the credit card anyway, answer security questions, and assure them thatyou are indeed making the charge).

Bonus Tip: Be Prepared For This Unexpected Charge – This additional tip, which gives you a heads-up to an unexpected major charge you need to be prepared for (and no, we’re not talking resort fees) is available in the members version of this issue. Enjoy instant access to this and all of our member benefits and features at Members.AccessVegas.com!

Barry Manilow Residency Tickets Now On Sale! – The ageless Manilow is pumped up about his return to Las Vegas, which will be at the Westgate (the previous Las Vegas Hilton, conveniently located from almost anywhere on The Strip via the monorail). We have great prices on tickets here: Barry Manilow Las Vegas Tickets

Outdoor Music Festivals Will Return To The Strip – Ever since the Oct. 1 shooting, no one has staged a major outdoor concert on The Strip. That will change on Sept. 22 when the iHeartRadio Daytime Stage show will take place on the Las Vegas Festival grounds, which are across from SLS(ahara). Given that the festival grounds are surrounded by the towers of the Hilton Grand Vacations, SLS, and Allure (condo), I have to imagine new precautions are being taken, and Metro (police) will have sharp-shooters on hand to immediately take out anyone who would try to recreate the Oct. 1 tragedy.

Feedback On Park MGM (former Monte Carlo) Pouring In – Before you consider staying at the “new” Park MGM, and paying what MGM Resorts plans to charge for rooms (or even deciding to take a comp there instead of another MGM property), here are the four things you MUST know:

This hot-off-the-press, timely tips regarding the new Park MGM hotel are available in the members version of this issue. Enjoy instant access to this and all of our member benefits and features at Members.AccessVegas.com!

Five Interesting Las Vegas Buffets To Try This Weekend

The great American buffet — with its endless plates of prime rib, shrimp, pasta, pizza and more — is a tradition that originated in Las Vegas in 1946. Famed Las Vegas publicist Herb McDonald, who was a pioneering force behind El Rancho, the first hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, inadvertently created the nation’s first buffet by lining up a plate of sandwich fixings for hungry gamblers.

Everytime I go to Vegas I rent a car for the week as my timeshare has great parking. My boyfriend is going for the first time with me (his second visit to Vegas). He doesn’t want to rent a car at all. Can you please leave me all your pros to having a car available to you so I can share with him more than just my person pros (ie… Grocery shopping, cheaper everything, cool off strip stuff). Feel free to share things you did you’re glad you had a car for.

Amy Casperson

 

Ted Responds:

Oh my, where to start. I have suggestions for everything from parks to sights to restaurants to a whole mix of everything else!

– You already mentioned groceries. However, restaurants (including good ones) just a few blocks from The Strip are SO much cheaper. For example, the lauded Herbs and Rye is one of the best steakhouses in town, and has a mixology program second-to-none.

And, they have two daily happy hours where EVERYTHING is 1/2 price!

In the first couple of miles of West Sahara (once you go under the freeway), you will find mom and pop restaurants of just about every ethnicity under the sun. Seriously, pull up Google Maps, zoom in on that area, and type restaurants.

Helpful Tips, Advice For Next Sports Betting Trip To Las Vegas

The Best Spot For Local Beers On The Las Vegas Strip

Walking into any casino on the Las Vegas Strip, you’re almost immediately greeted by a bar.

The nondescript bar by the entrance has an equally unassuming beer list featuring a “craft and microbrew” section that isn’t very micro at all – Sam Adams Seasonal, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Sierra Nevada.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – What I call Summer Part I (what most of you call springtime) is upon us. The next two weeks call for highs in the high 70’s and 80’s, although (as it typical of April), you can expect some wind here and there. Although, remember my recent members column on which months were the most (and least) volatile regarding weather noted that April is often very unpredictable, and often windy. Rain is not completely uncommon (although it seems like we had our share of rain last month).

Beware Of This Sneaky Table Game Modification! – A new trend in an old table game is starting to creep its way into Las Vegas Strip casinos. If you don’t know what to look for, you won’t know that you are playing this “new” version. Yet, the new version takes nearly 3% more of your money (on average, per bet, the house wins more money, more often), then the old version.

My members-only column this week is a report on this new variation of a popular table game, how you may not ordinarily notice the difference, and specifically what to look for so you don’t get burned by these bad new odds against you. These tables currently have no shortage of players, because your average player has no clue they are playing at a high-hold (for the house), bad odds (for the player) table.

PS We are not talking about 6-5 blackjack. That is old news, and should be avoided as well. This is a new twist on a popular table game that will drain your wallet quickly, and simply leave you thinking you had a run of bad luck.

Members have instant access to this and all of our special reports, saving you money and keeping you in the know for whenever your next visit is!

Members Mania

Hi Ted, It’s been a long time since I’ve written you and a few years since my last Vegas trip, but now I’m thinking about coming back again. And I have a couple of questions:

1. I usually stayed at the Mirage because of the great pool and the close proximity to Casino Royale. I like craps but hate to see minimums higher than five bucks. I enjoy playing the game and understand gambling well enough that I expect to eventually lose a bit or maybe break even. If I come out ahead of course, that’s ideal and a fine surprise. Are there any other casinos that have reasonable craps minimums maybe downtown? I probably will stay at the Mirage again, but with Uber, I can expect to get out and about, more than I used to do when I rented a car or taxi.

2. Resort fees, yuck! Are there any other hotels that can come near the beauty and fun of the Mirage pools, waterfalls, etc., that DON’T charge ridiculously high resort fees? I haven’t tried any off-strip hotels, but might, if they can come near to the atmosphere of the Mirage pools.

Thanks for your continuing Vegas news, I’ve read for many years.

David Durbin

 

Ted Responds:

Very happy to hear you are considering a visit, and happy that we have been able to help you out and keep you in the loop with our membership newsletter!

– I still love The Mirage (and Bellagio). Love the Mirage atmosphere and location. The only bummer is that although built by Steve Wynn, it is owned by the nickel-and-diming, fee imposing MGM Resorts corporation. But, you’ve discovered the joys of Casino Royale across the street. Where the limits are still low and the drinks are still cheap!

Generally speaking, you’ll find the limits you want there. However, with the advent of Uber, you are correct: There is no excuse NOT to go downtown. You’ll find plenty of $5 craps and blackjack tables. If it is a super-busy weekend night, you won’t find them everywhere. But, you’ll find them pretty much somewhere.

El Cortez is a super-fun place to shoot dice, and because of their location and “regular guy” clientele, they have to keep the limits down. Main Street Station is highly suggested as well. And, don’t overlook the completely renovated Cal, where you can gamble with always-fun Hawaiians.

We have answers to your Vegas questions!

But, you have to ask the questions.

I’m a bit confused; in Classic Vegas Tip Review you say to go East on Flamingo from the strip and in Best Kept Secret View in Vegas you say to go West on Flamingo form the strip.

Not knowing Vegas that well, would like a little clarification please.

Thanks, Chris

PS Plan on taking Canadian friends there in April

 

Ted Responds:

Sorry and thanks for pointing this out. One was a typo!

To start to get to that direction, you go East on Flamingo.

If you are handy with Google Maps or similar, you want to get to the intersection

Members get access to this ultra-exclusive tip that I’ve never seen posted anywhere else on the internet and that I guarantee you 99.9% of locals don’t know about. I only stumbled on it because I used to live in that area, and wanted to see where a (public) road went. Since then, I’ve enjoyed it countless times and have taken many family and friends up to see as well. Always awesome.

PS You can try to find it on your own, but don’t blame us if security kicks you off the road leading to the sewage treatment plant. Or you end up mired in a suberban neighborhood. Our members get specific instructions.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – It has been a wacky weather March. We’ve had highs in the 70’s, highs in the 50’s (sometimes on back-to-back days), a number of days of 30mph wind, and a few days of rain. Since people do inquire about what are the better (or more predictable) months to visit, we’ll be discussing our preferred weather information references (for Las Vegas) as well as which are the most and least stable months to visit down in Members Mania this week.

Where To Win In Las Vegas – This issue, we’ll continue the discussion — based on state gaming taxation information and casino corporate reports (we read all of that boring stuff so you don’t have to) — of where to play to have the best chance of winning.

Last issue, we covered the very best area of Las Vegas if you have the transportation or don’t mind taking an inexpensive Uber ride. And frankly, you’ll probably save more (in both less losses/more chances to win, and great food at very reasonable prices.

Don’t Forget: (Click) We’re able to offer $5 off your first Uber ride!

We then discussed downtown Las Vegas. It is pretty common knowledge that Downtown gaming is looser than The Strip. However, Fremont Street has its variances. We noted suggested places to play (and stay) and why.

Note: If you are a member and in our new login system, you can find the last issue in our members area.

If you are not yet a member, you can have instant access to this complete issue (including the sections and special reports we don’t put in the free version), plus access to previous information and issues INSTANTLY! Simply go to Members.AccessVegas.com and sign up. Help us out with a “cup of coffee” ($2 per month, paid yearly), and you’ll be the most informed Las Vegas visitor out there.

Where To Play (Or Avoid) On The Las Vegas Strip – Although The Strip has the worst gambling in Nevada (tight slots, bad table game rules), we know that many of you simply won’t leave the nicer resorts and/or still feel that your comps make the proverbial losses worth it. The Strip gambling landscape has been changing dramatically, and we have what you need to know:

I’m coming to Las Vegas in (name of month). What will the weather be like?

Various

 

Ted Responds:

We monitor a whole bunch of online forums and groups about Las Vegas, so you don’t have to. Trust me, by the time you’ve seen the question “What is the best steakhouse” for the 47th time, or someone simply saying “I’m coming for the first time, what should I do”, your eyes will glaze over.

In fact, that is why we instituted our members program. For buying us that “cup of coffee” each month, you are entitled to have us personally answer your question for help about Las Vegas. One size does not fit all. We take a minute to ask you what you are after, or what you want to experience. We’re “Your Guy In Vegas”.

For example, we recently answered (and published) information for visiting the Grand Canyon. With two rims to visit (from Las Vegas) and multiple ways to get over there (rental car, bus, airplane, and helicopter), there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Many of you were able to make the right decision for YOU on this bucket list (and not inexpensive) venture. It pleases us to make sure your future Las Vegas trips are your best ever!

So, when it comes to Las Vegas’ ever changing weather, it helps to know which months are generally the most stable, and which are pretty chaotic and hard to predict (months in advance). If you just want a general overview with the understanding that temps here can be 15 degrees higher or lower than the monthly average, no need to do any more than ask your favorite search engine for sites with Las Vegas weather averages. However, that won’t tell you which months are more volatile, and which are likely to adhere to the averages. That’s what we’re here for!

Hope this helps,

We have answers to your Vegas questions!

But, you have to ask the questions.

Access Vegas Insider Vibe March 7, 2018

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – March is college basketball month here in Las Vegas. We’re the home to four (count them, four) college basketball tournaments: Pac-12 (Go Oregon Ducks), Mountain West (Go UNLV Rebels), West Coast Conference (the one with Gonzaga and BYU in it), and the Western Athletic Conference (teams most of you have not heard of).

Then, we roll right into March Madness, the craziest four days of college basketball of the year.

We’re keeping a close eye on the pending Supreme Court decision on whether sports betting will be allowed on a state-by-state basis. Right now, Nevada is the only state with wide-open sports betting. I’m torn on this. Obviously, as someone who promotes tourism here, I like the thought that we have a corner on the market. However, I’m a state’s rights guy as long as one state does not infringe upon another.

If available, imagine it will be more quickly legalized in states with strong casino gaming presence. New Jersey is at the forefront of the fight. Sports betting is taxed very low here in Nevada, which allows the casinos to offer you decent odds on your bets. If other states legalize it with an eye on tax revenue, you’ll be able to bet. However, you won’t be getting Nevada odds.

We’ll certainly lose some east coast sports betters to Atlantic City. However, the atmosphere of being in Las Vegas for March Madness, with all Las Vegas has to offer (and a chance for many to escape winter weather for our spring-like temps), I doubt we’ll see much fall-off.

The Gambling Numbers Are In, What They Mean To YOU – Each year, the State of Nevada tallys and releases numbers on what areas have the loosest and tightest slots. As gaming taxes have to be paid to the state, they know how much the machines took in, and how much they paid out.

I’m going to devote my column this week (and next) to going over where the best odds are, where you should (or should not) be gambling, and which players clubs you should (or should not) be considering. We’re going to go far beyond the obvious. Almost everyone knows that if you get to the locals casinos, you’ll find lower limits and looser slots (not to mention cheaper food and drink).

However, for some of you, downtown is as far as you go. If so, what are your better places to play? And, what about those of you who never leave The Strip? Where can you get a good gamble, and where should you avoid? Let’s get started!

How safe is Las Vegas water? It certainly doesn’t taste good. What is in it?

Craig Bunnett

 

Ted Responds:

It is HARD water. It has tons of minerals in it. The white ring around Lake Mead wasn’t painted there. That is from the minerals in the water that stuck to the canyon walls as the water level has fallen. While our water originates as snow in the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming, it takes a journey of many hundreds of miles down the Colorado River (and through the Grand Canyon), before we pump it out of Lake Mead. Picking up plenty of minerals along the way from our western rocky lands.

Newkirk’s Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! – Where we’re finally starting to pull out of what was a very windy, cold, not-so-pleasant month of February. Except for this weekend, I’m happy to report that the first couple weeks of March are looking pretty good! Highs in the 60’s with only modest desert breezes and we’re saying goodbye to overnight lows in the 30’s.

The Hits Keep On Coming – MGM Resorts has decided to raise resort fees at many of their properties this week. In a world where resort fees (plus the taxes on them) are pushing $40, the properties are playing a cute shell game here. For those who get comped rooms (but not resort fee comps), it isn’t as much of a comp.

You are not only giving them your money in the casino, but you are essentially “paying” for the room. To those at higher levels of play who get room, resort fee, and parking comped: Just a few years ago, there was either none (or a very, very modest) resort fee and parking was free. So, they are giving you some “comped” stuff that didn’t used to cost anything. Pretty shifty!

The backlash is starting to boil over. I recently had an op-ed published in the Review-Journal (Nevada’s largest newspaper):

COMMENTARY: Some warning signs in Las Vegas tourism numbers

A couple days later, gaming business writer Rick Velotta cited my thoughts, and piled on with his own concerns:

Parking, resort fees could put damper on Las Vegas Strip boom

We’re going to make some noise, and we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, we’re helping members find value and savings in the “new” Las Vegas. You just have to know where to look!

More Good News For You – In my members-only audio column from last week, I noted that 15,000 rooms are coming online in about 3 years. Then, I backed that number off to 12,000 as I couldn’t remember one of the properties. The number is indeed around 15,000. Between Resorts World (former Stardust), Wynn Paradise Park, Wynn West, Fontainebleau, and the (yet to be named) former Las Vegas Club, we’ll see a 10% increase in available rooms.

I’m a blackjack novice. Do you have any advice to have a better chance at winning?

Charlie Casper

 

Ted Responds:

When I moved here in the 90’s, I counted cards, and did so successfully. However, that is TONS of practice and work. And, many modern rules have made it difficult to suceed at it these days.

For the novice or casual player, the answers are pretty simple:

1. Only play 3-2 payout of blackjack. You are getting ripped off if a blackjack pays 6-5. If the table doesn’t say what the payout is, you can ask the dealer.

Play downtown on Fremont Street. You’ll find more 3-2 payout blackjack, and lower limits perfect for learning, or just having fun.

2. Try not to play against a continuous shuffle machine. The game goes faster, so you lose faster. Plus, there is some evidence that the cards seem to come out in the house’s favor more often because of the way the machine shuffles and clumps them.

Hello from England!

Having spent many holidays in Vegas while our kids were small, we are returning this August for several family celebrations. Our youngest is now 21 and can explore Vegas without restriction! His older brother, 23, wants to treat him to a Grand Canyon trip and wonders which will be the best. Is it the West Rim or South Rim experience? We’re around for 12 days so they can spare an entire day but should they opt for helicopter or plane?

Grateful for your views.

Pauline

 

Ted Responds:

First of all, congrats to your youngest, who can now really enjoy all Las Vegas has to offer.

This is a fantastic question, as people don’t realize that there are “two” Grand Canyons (two different locations you can visit) and three ways to get over there.

As you noted, the Grand Canyon has a West Rim and a South Rim (It has a North Rim as well, but you have to drive up into Utah to get there, and is a moot point for the sake of this discussion). And, of course, you can take a flight into the canyon which doesn’t land at either rim.

– If you are doing a flight-only option, I’d suggest a helicopter over a sight-seeing plane. Although most of the sight-seeing planes have big windows, the view is simply more intimate in a helicopter. You fly down into the canyon. And, the stadium-style (tiered) seating on most helicopter tours assures everyone a panoramic view out of the front. In addition, you can choose a tour that actually lands you at the bottom of the canyon!

Hope this helps!
