Motorists riding those three miles south from Glitter Gulch toward the Strip игра ящик с деньгами to see a Las Vegas never shown in glitzy ads. Flat-roofed World War II -- era houses sit in disrepair along Las Vegas Boulevard, iron bars protecting their windows.
Pawnshops, wedding chapels, one-hour-photo booths, liquor stores, 1950s-era motels featuring X-rated movies, adult bookstores, рулетка онлайн с демо счетом bars, and used furniture stores line the boulevard. But all these dives disappear at the Sahara Avenue intersection. From this point on, motorists are shaded by towering palm trees игра ящик с деньгами rise from the landscaped median that divides the boulevard as it expands from four to six lanes along the next four miles.
Most of them have familiar names: Circus Circus, Stardust, Frontier, Desert Inn, Riviera. Although some of their exteriors have been remodeled, игра ящик с деньгами look much as they did when they were first erected in the 1950s and 1960s. The popularity of the northern tip has been dropping over the years as tourists moved farther south to newer and more elaborate casinos.
In 1995, a renegade игра ящик с деньгами owner named Bob Stupak tried to reverse this southern trend by erecting игра наш огород с выводом денег super casino on the northern tip. But despite its daring rides, the Stratosphere has failed to draw crowds, largely because tourists feel uncomfortable walking through the seedy neighborhood at its base.
The first part deals with how Las Vegas came to be, the establishment of the first casinos, a small description of how Jay Sarno established Caesars Palace and Circus Circus (nothing like the more detailed story of "Grandissimo"), background on how Steve Wynn established himself in Las Vegas, and потратил много денег на игру Circus Circus established itself as the largest casino company on the strip.
Its really the last part that dominates the book, describing how Circus Circus turned itself around after Sarno had to let it go up to getting the Luxor off the ground and the building of Mandalay Bay. The stories of the casino employees is great in getting to see how things work at a casino and the type of culture that exists. The stories about the gamblers and the prostitute did чемпион казино fit in well and would have been better in a book just about Las Vegas stories (prostitute finds old customer who falls in love with her and helps her get out of business, prostitute finds true love, old customer gets mad and dumps her, true love dumps her once he finds out she was prostitute, and then old customer takes her back and gets her out of Las Vegas).
Also throughout the book are interspersed quick 3-4 page stories from people who work at casinos or are игра ящик с деньгами, ones to just give you an idea how cut throat Las Vegas can be.
