LAS VEGAS – The typical Vegas casino is an endless row of slot machines, roulette wheels and blackjack tables. Hundreds of opportunities await the lucky traveler to try his or her hand at just about every type of bet imaginable.

Whatever strikes your fancy, Vegas has it and in any number of themes – from Central Park at New York-New York to ancient Rome at Caesars Palace to the canals of Venice at The Venetian. Where else in the world can you find the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statute of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower and a pyramid within walking distance?

Surreal? Yes. Bizarre? Indeed. Over the top? Without a doubt. Frankly, Sin City is what one makes of it.

Want to bet $10 on a hand of blackjack? There are a dozen or so chances to do so within about five feet. But maybe you don’t part quite so easily with your hard-earned cash. No need to worry.
