casino slot cards and room keys from Las Vegas, and all over the world. Slot cards are used
by the casino to track the amount of money that you spend on gambling. You
can earn comps such as free rooms, drinks, meals, show tickets, clothing,
and gift shop items.
Here you will find stories and pictures about the rich
and unconventional history of Las Vegas. I have put a lot of work into researching the
history of Fremont Street, the "Strip" and "Off-Strip", hotels,
motels, bars, and casinos both
past and present. I have included over 1600 pictures of the gaming chips, hotels,
ashtrays, postcards, slot cards, room keys, and matchbooks for many of the properties along with photos that I have taken
on my many trips to Las Vegas.
page as I am frequently adding, updating, and
making changes to this website. I have listed all of
the Las Vegas casinos and hotels that I know of, but I am sure there are some that
have slipped under the radar. I have put a lot of time into developing my website to what you see today, and
I'm still improving it.
I am fascinated by the history of Las Vegas! No other website has as much
information that mine does about downtown. Go to my
page and click on the links for each hotel.
Please take the time to explore my site.
As for Vegas
- it couldn't be much weirder if this town were on the moon. The place just seems to pulse with whatever it is that makes
the weirdness weird. The place feeds on it. Likes it. And the weirdest thing is, it always has. --Michael Ventura
Vegas means ... wild, irresponsible, what-happens-here-stays-here.
Smoke cigars, have sex with strangers, get wasted and see stupid shows with stupid Elvis impersonators doing
stupid impressions of that stupid hillbilly. That's an image we know and love in Vegas. It's the image
we spend our stupidly low tax money to promote. "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas" was an official slogan. - Penn Jillette
The only ads
that I have here are Google and Amazon. This is a free hobby
website, so any expenses come out of my own pocket. At present there are over
350 individual pages of information here, and I update them when I find new
pictures or information to share with you. Enjoy your visit, and come back
