I'm going to Las Vegas for the first time, and looking to find the best rules/paytables for blackjack and video poker, with the lowest minimums (I can't afford $10 blackjack or $1 video poker). I'm versed in blackjack and VP already, so I'm no newb to gambling, just looking for a very recently updated list, since I hear Vegas is falling rapidly. And I believe it, because I stopped gambling in NW Indiana after they wiped out 5 cent 99.5%+ VP, went from $3 blackjack to $10, didn't even stop at $5, etc. I'm mainly looking for +EV VP, which I'm guessing the only game besides progressives would be FPDW, which is fine by me. My favorite is JWKB but that's a rare game I hear.
I don't have the specific information about where to find the good BJ and VP rules (Somebody who posts after me will have it), but the Palms is probably the closest to the strip with some of what you're looking for...
However, you said this will be your first trip to Las Vegas. That being said, you should really experience the Strip and everything it offers. Yes, the games are not as good, yes there are some horrible low limit games out there. But the experience of what it offers as far as people-watching, the enormity of it all... you really should enjoy that.
