Our Gaming Editor - Vegas Vic - Victor H. Royer, has written a new book: "Gambling Legends: True Stories and Amazing Facts."
We asked him what it's about, and here's what he had to say:
"The crazy gynecologist was running through the casino, yelling and screaming and waving a Samurai sword. He was naked to the waist, and chased by security guards.
Meanwhile at the Frontier, an East Indian Fakir - it sounds like a dirty word but it's not - was trying to teach his Cobra snake to pull the handle of the slot machine.
Just another day in my town - Las Vegas.
In this book, I tell you a lot of these stories. Also profiles of many of the world's greatest gamblers, and their true stories.
I'll tell you about the $100 Man, about Mr. Briefcase, and about the Birthday Bets - among many others.
Plus truly Amazing Facts!
Did you know that it's illegal in Las Vegas to Pawn your dentures? Well, I sure hope the guys from Pawn Stars know that! Who knows - someone may want to come in and pawn their teeth!

Back in December, my wife and I stayed in a Stratosphere Strip View room for a couple of days of our December trip. For our stay, I decided on a Strip View room, just so I wouldn't be too far from the action. We had just spent two days in a Luxor Pyramid room, so when we entered our Stratosphere Room, it felt, well, like the same room we just left but without the angled wall.
