AVN Wants To Teach You What Sex Is This Pornuary

September 16, 2014 at 1:29 PM | by | Comments (0)

Things you probably won't hear at AEE: "Our eyes are up here."

Well, if anyone knows sex sells, it's AVN.

Every Pornuary (read: January), the Adult Video Network heats up Vegas with the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) which puts porn stars face-to-face with very fappy, umm, happy fans. If all the, err, research we they do in preparation for the annual event doesn't teach them everything they need to know about sexy time, new seminars aim to strip it down to the basics.

It's Already Time To Start Thinking About That 2015 Trip To Vegas

August 19, 2014 at 4:17 PM | by | Comments (18)

Itís not even Labor Day weekend, but itís already time to start planning for 2015. Whether youíre a bargain hunter or just a neurotic planner like this writer, youíre always looking for an excuse to plan your next fun experience. When it comes to planning Las Vegas vacations, there are always times when everyone knows it will be busy. New Year's Eve, The Big Game, March Madness, Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend are among the busiest. Cinco de Mayo weekend is also a big one because thereís usually a big boxing match and the Kentucky Derby†to go along with all the Cinco de Mayo parties.

In between these busy periods, youíll find some less expensive times of the year to visit Las Vegas. My favorite time of year is in between Thanksgiving and Christmas (not counting when National Finals Rodeo moseys into town). Itís relatively†quiet (for Vegas) and hotels are less expensive. Even living in Las Vegas, I†still take a few days off to enjoy the Strip while it isnít as crowded. I like when the hospitality industry isnít run so ragged by the constant barrage of tourists and they can pay a little more attention to me. Iím a real fancy boy like that.

Where To Find Loose Slots In Vegas

May 1, 2014 at 7:57 PM | by | Comment (1)

As part of our search for the best gambling odds, we constantly seek the best blackjack, craps and video poker games. Generally, slot machines arenít high on the list for gamblers seeking the best odds in a casino. Slot machine payback is referred to in a different language. People aren't looking for slot machines with the smallest house advantage. They're looking for loose slots. Loose slots have the highest returns (yay) while tight slots have the lowest (boo).

So, where can you find the loosest slots in Vegas? Exactly where you think and probably not where you visit. The second best slot machine returns in the country are found just off the Vegas Strip. Off Strip casinos like The Orleans, Hard Rock, Palms and Silverton†have slot machines that return 94.64% of the money played.

March 11, 2014 at 3:23 PM | by | Comment (1)

Most of us are getting ready for March Madness or the first pitch of the Major League Baseball regular season. Football isn't front and center with most people that bet on sports, but that hasn't stopped Cantor Gaming (CG Technology) from looking forward to the NFL season. It's the first sportsbook operator to post season win totals for the next pro football season.

Over the past couple seasons, Cantor has become the first sportsbook operator to release NFL season win totals but this marks the earliest they've posted them to date. In fact, this is the earliest any sportsbook operator has released season win totals. Ever. Free agency hasn't begun yet and the NFL Draft is weeks away, but if you can see into the future maybe you're ready to place bets on how teams will perform. Take a look:

Back in December, Guns N' Roses fan site MyGnrForum reported on rumors that the band was planning a follow-up to their successful 2012 Vegas residency at the Hard Rock. A few days ago, the Guns N' Roses Facebook page started teasing confirmation of a Spring 2014 return via pics of poster and billboard announcements.

As instructed, we've texted 'GNR' to 97580, but haven't received any details yet on what the spring will bring. Unfortunately, that's all we gots for now. So, while we know where you are and sort of when, the how long and exactly has yet to be released to a jungle of fans.
