Informative Travel Guide About Las Vegas

WizardOfVegas.com was launched to the general public on November 9, 2009. The goal of the site is to be an informative travel guide about Las Vegas. It is also a spinoff of the casino odds web site WizardOfOdds.com, with an emphasis on the gambling scene in Las Vegas. The owner and primary writer for the site is Michael Shackleford, and the webmaster is the mysterious JB. Here you'll find a review of almost every hotel in Vegas, lots of shows, and other miscellaneous attractions. However, our most popular feature is the forum where you're welcome to learn from each other about Vegas, gambling in general, and whatever else is on your mind.
