Call it dual-action value with thousands of dollars worth of coupons to save visitors money in Nevada and elsewhere while offering a handy time-saving guide to the casinos of each state. The title? The 2006 American Casino Guide (496 pages, paperbound, $16.95).

The new arrival at the Gambler’s Book Shop in Las Vegas would make a nice holiday gift for a friend or relative.

The Guide, compiled by Steve Bourie, starts with advice on playing the casino games in the first 100 pages then moves to a description of what each state offers, in alphabetical order, in the way of games, prices you can expect to pay for rooms, the establishment’s web site, whether there are RV facilities, with a state map showing where the casino is located, key phone numbers and, of course, addresses.

For Nevada and Atlantic City casinos there are more detailed street maps. Those interested in racetracks, cruise ships or Indian casinos will find this a handy guide well worth the price.

From page 365 on, the coupon parade begins with rental cars, rooms, meals, souvenirs, drinks, shows, slot play, match play, roller coaster rides. Most coupons apply to Nevada, but some are good in New Jersey, Mississippi and Illinois. They are good for a year, ending in December 2006, so there’s no rush on using them immediately.

it differs from every other major tourist location in the world.
