When Your Royal Flush Comes With A Royal Flash
Gambling in Las Vegas isn't confined to your favorite casino. You can play video poker just about anywhere. It's kind of surreal the first time you walk into a gas station and see a line of people playing video poker.
At first, it seems cool, but then you wonder if these people just cashed their check at the gas station (because you can do that, too) and went straight to the video poker machine. At that point, a feeling of sadness creeps in as you see them jump for joy when they get a royal flush. At least that's how it was for this writer.
We're not too proud to admit that we enjoy the occasional trip to a strip club. Recently, we found it interesting that there are only two strip clubs in tourist areas of Las Vegas that offer video poker and naked ladies.
If you're downtown, you can head over to the famous Glitter Gulch to grab a free drink while you play video poker. They just ask that you don't ogle the talent on the stage. If you're on The Strip, you can head a few blocks south of the Stratosphere to Olympic Gardens for video poker and to compliment the men and women of OG.
