Well, Bitcoin is untraceable by the average person. I'll edit my earlier post to add Bitcoin as a payment option.

Thanks, TomG.

To save me time, if I thank your post, you're entered. If I didn't, I found it lacking (or I haven't read it yet).



Please go like my post so you don't mistakenly miss that I have already been entered, if you would be so kind. I appreciate the EV added to the Picks Game! I have no problem accepting my entry since I won't be getting the money anyway, otherwise, I'd just have you donate it to something.

I'm sorry, I swore I thanked it right away, but apparently I didn't. I just went back and thanked it. Sorry about that.

Hi, MichaelBluejay

On the page "Getting from the airport to your hotel" it has visitor fares.

I thought the 108/109 buses are local and therefore $2 fare for one way.

Is it because the bus goes to the airport RTC charges more?

Whoops, good catch, thanks! I fixed it.

Back in the day, you could buy a pass on a residential bus (for less $) and it still worked on the Strip bus. I suspect that's still the case. Can anyone confirm?

The pass prices, depending on whether you buy them on a residential bus or a Strip bus, are:

Single ride: $2 / (n/a)
2-Hour Pass: $3 / $6
24-Hour Pass: $5 / $8
3-Day Pass: (n/a) / $20
7-Day Pass: $20 / (n/a)
15-Day Pass: $34 / (n/a)
30-Day Pass: $65 / (n/a)

I don't know if I met the rules, but if I did and win, then you may draw another name as I'll recuse myself from the prize.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

"All residential passes are valid on Strip & Downtown Express and Deuce on the Strip with a local I.D."

So, the poll questions are:

(1) Should Tuscany (with a hotel, 50k sf gaming space, but no table games) be listed as a casino or not? Why or why not?
(2) Should Casino Royale (with a hotel but no table games) be listed as a casino or not? Why or why not?
(3) Should Slots-A-Fun (with no hotel or table games) be listed as a casino or not? Why or why not?
(4) Should OYO (0.3 miles from the Strip) be listed as a "Strip" casino?



1) Yes, because,
a. many people don't play tables
b. a quick Google define casino "a public room or building where gambling games are played"
c. From memory (2008) I liked the place
d. It has a casino license

2) Yes, see a, b, and d above

3) If the place has it's own casino license then yes otherwise it's technically part of Circus Circus and should be listed as part of that casino. Maybe do Curcus Circus/Slots-A-Fun

4) No, it's not on the strip

I would change what makes the list as most of the casinos listed are not in the Incorporated City of Las Vegas. Might try Downtown, Vegas Strip, or within x distance to the strip.

1) Yes. Tom G. covered it best.
2) Yes. It's Casino Royale.
3) I'd call it an annex of Circus Circus as it hasn't offered table games for years.
4)I'm inclined to say yes.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
