Las Vegas Top Ten ValuesSince 1983 the Las Vegas Advisor has provided hundreds of thousands of Las Vegas visitors with a monthly list of the best bargains in town.
About the Top Ten
1. Room Rates - Four Queens - - $39 and up
Room rates remain at #1 this month. Even considering resort fees, rack rates can still be found for under $40. But you can do even better with a new offer at the Plaza available only to LVA members. You have to be on the LVA Gold list to take advantage, but it’s free and easy-to-do when you follow the steps as outlined.
2. Steak Dinner - Ellis Island - 24 hours - $7.99
The Ellis Island steak dinner (#2) is served in the Café and requires that you print out two coupons from an EI kiosk, the second after playing at least $5 in any slot machine with your club card inserted, to get the $7.99 price. This dinner includes a 10-ounce filet-cut sirloin, which comes with salad, garlic green beans, choice of potato, and fresh microbrewed beer.
3. Shrimp Cocktail - Skyline - 24 hours - $1.49
The shrimp cocktail at Skyline is served 24/7 at the main bar and comes in a cocktail glass, with no filler lettuce or celery, and topped with a tangy sauce.
4. Beer - Casino Royale - 24 hours - $1
Even with all the football festivities and promotions around town, there are only a few casinos or bars offering $1 beers. That fact shines a light on why the Casino Royale’s $1-Michelob deal, available 24/7, holds its lofty spot (#4) on the list. Get them, or a 75¢ draft Coors Light, at the bar.
5. Mac King - Harrah's - Tues.–Sat. - $9.95
You have to seek out the $9.95 tickets for the Mac King Comedy Magic Show at Harrah’s; they’re usually available at either the players club booth or the concierge, or ask the box office where they’re being distributed.
6. Breakfast/Burger - Arizona Charlie's - both locations - 24 hours - $4.49
Get steak & eggs, ham & eggs, or a hamburger & fries for $4.49 when you show your club card in the Sourdough Cafés at Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Boulder (#6), served 24 hours (except midnight-6 am, Mon.-Fri. at Boulder).
7. Photo - Binion's Gambling Hall - Daily - Free
The free photo next to the $1 million display at Binion’s (#7) is the best souvenir in town. The process couldn’t be easier. Just show up between 9 am and 11:30 pm, say cheese, and your photo will be ready in 30 minutes. Unlike the old days when you got a black & white Polaroid, this is a full-color 6x8 presented in a cardboard carrier. You can get one per day. Join the players club while you wait to get a $10 first-ace coupon and other good sign-up offers, or use the time for a mini coupon run downtown using your Member Rewards Book offers.
8. Rebate Parlay - Downtown Grand Plaza - Daily - Free
If you take advantage of the Plaza room deal, you’ll be perfectly positioned to avail yourself of the downtown rebate parlay (#8). Get a $1,500 freeroll with the combined loss-rebate offers at the Downtown Grand and the Plaza. Both deals are good for out-of-staters and locals, but you must be a new club member to qualify.
9. Oysters - Venetian - Daily - $1
They’re back! After a long hiatus, $1 oysters are available again on the Strip. They’re served from 5 to 6 pm daily during “Oyster Hour” in db Brasserie at the Venetian (#9).
Of all the good football deals revealed, we still like the free “Pick the Pros” contest best (#10), given its convenience and upside potential. Swipe your B Connected card on a kiosk at Gold Coast, Suncoast, Orleans, Sam’s Town, Fremont, California, or Main Street Station for a shot at $30,000 every week. Must submit picks before the kick-off of the week’s first Sunday game.
