    Bet Consciously

    From Redditor u/Hoodafakizit:

    Don't bet any money you're not willing to lose. The odds are stacked against you, so just consider your gambling money as "money to be spent having fun". If you come out ahead, great. If you lose it all, you haven't lost more than you were willing to lose.

    Don't Lose Your Common Sense

    From Redditor u/drunk98:

    People do so much stupid, irresponsible bullsh*t on the strip it's ridiculous. Just use some common sense and don't get f*cked up while thinking that there aren't any consequences to your actions. Cops & cameras everywhere.

    Take The Exact Amount Of Cash

    From a former Redditor:

    Set a maximum amount of money you want to spend BEFORE entering the casino to bypass the ugly 'one more game'-effect. Better: just take the defined amount of cash with you and nothing more (like a credit card).

    Wear Appropriate Shoes

    From Redditor u/pandaposse:

    Wear sensible footwear. I see too many ladies wearing heels and wanting to take them off later in the night while trying to walk home on the dirty sidewalks. Really gross.

    Use The Crosswalk

    From Redditor u/Sirtriplenipple:

    Don't jaywalk on the strip, they are pretty serious about that.
    [The fines can be up to $280 or more, and people won't always stop to avoid hitting you.]

    Free Demos Don't Exist

    From Redditor u/devon223:

    Don't take the free demo from guys standing tune strip. As soon as it's in your hand they'll tell you it's $5-$10. They're usually pretty intimidating as well.
