Gambling Legends:
True Stories and Amazing Facts

Our Gaming Editor - Vegas Vic - Victor H. Royer, has written a new book: "Gambling Legends: True Stories and Amazing Facts."

Gambling Legends: True Stories and Amazing Facts book cover

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!

Now that's different from just losing your shirt!"

This book is available as both an eBook, and as a printed Paperback.

Room Review: The Stratosphere Strip View Roo

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.

The World Beneath The Rims Of The Grand Canyon

There are few places in the world like the Grand Canyon, a place that is so magical, so immense, and so recognizable by literally billions of people around the planet. The Grand Canyon inspires so many, whether by standing on its rims and gazing into the abyss, by the neck-craning views at the bottom of the gorge, or being enveloped by the fragile life clinging in its small seeps, springs and waterfalls that sustain small, intimate spaces within this giant landscape. Precious water in this arid environment not only created the place, t sustains its life and allure to so many, and provides inspiration for artists who come to the Canyon to discover and expose their inner creativity.
