2. What's your best tip for someone going to Vegas for the first time?
ELVIS: Take time to walk the Strip and visit all the hotels/casinos. They're all unique and deserve exploration.
DANIELLE: Don't just gamble! There are sooo many other things to do in Vegas. See the shows!!! See the cool sights.
SKEERY: Two nights is too little. Four nights is too much. Don't walk from hotel to hotel. Don't rent a car- taxi and Uber door to door everywhere. You'll sleep about 3 hours a night. Prepare to dedicate an entire day to rest when you get back.

6. Do you have any gambling tips? Did you ever have a big win?
ELVIS: Yes. Blackjack (as long as friends are at the table). Also, Roulette!
DANIELLE: Nope. If I put some change in the slots that's a lot for me. I would rather save my money for a cool new pair of shoes there.
SKEERY: Yes. Black Jack is my game. When you play by the book, the casino only has a 51% to 49% advantage (around 1%) over the player. Stay away from the slots. They are the WORST ODDS in the casino. That's why there's so many of them.
FROGGY: If you are dealt (2) 8’s or Aces, split them. (2) 8s totals 16 and that’s the worst blackjack hand! And a pair of 10-value cards totals 20…it’s a good hand to risk it because you have a good chance of getting two good hands!! Never won big…BUT I WILL THIS YEAR!!!
GANDHI: Quit while you’re ahead… the house always wins.
7. A night in the club or a night at the theater?
ELVIS: Both! The club one night and theater the next. Gotta mixed it up!
DANIELLE: I'm always down for a good show!
SKEERY: A night in the club is the quintessential Vegas experience. It's a must!
FROGGY: Theater! I'm the opposite of Skeery. Ha!
