There are lots of free casino parties going on everywhere in Las Vegas
There are parties going on everywhere in Las Vegas and the best thing about the ones in the casino is they’re all free…to a degree.
You still have to get invited to the ones in the banquet or showrooms, but they’re still free. The NFL came crashing on our party a few years ago and now the casinos can’t charge or show the game on a rented big screen because that wasn’t used all season for the same purposes.
The night clubs are going to charge just because they do for entry all year and it technically isn’t on the casino viewing floor.
There won’t be a bad seat for the Super Bowl in Las Vegas wherever you are because the game will find you whether you’re playing blackjack, eating or drinking at the bar. It’s not about where you’re at, it’s about what you make it and the festive atmosphere wherever you find yourself is going to be felt.
It’s going to be a blast.
I’ve actually had more fun at Super Bowl parties when I’m mobile and walking around to different locations around the Strip, and eventually I just seem to find a place that feels right at the time. Try a quarter of the game at a different place in a row like Mirage, Treasure Island and all their fun bars, and then the Palazzo and Wynn.
If you’d like to be an invited guest and stay for the game in one place, call a casino host of a floor you have played at before and state your case to be invited and tell them how many.
If I had to pick one place to stay at for the entire game, it would be at the South Point where they have several parties going throughout. One year, I found myself with some Boise folks I didn’t know in the bowling alley bar and we all had a great time watching the game.
