Reason #1 I like Bovada:

Play for free
with no hassles

Most online casinos annoy the hell out of me. They insult you with popup windows and spam, and do everything they can to separate you from your money. Even if you want to just play with fake money for free, they make you register for an account so they can pester you by email trying to get you to deposit real money.

On the whole Internet, I found exactly one online casino that's different: Bovada. You can play their games for free, with absolutely no hassles. And that's the main reason why I promote them exclusively.

Here's what I mean by no hassles:

  • Completely free. It's not one of those "Buy 1 get 1 free" kind of deals, it's absolutely free. You can click over and start playing with fake money right away, with no cash out of pocket. Here, go ahead and try it.
  • No registration required. Most casinos let you play for free, but there's a catch: They make you register an account first. That's not just a hassle: after you do it you can expect them to badger you by email trying to get you to deposit real money. But Bovada lets you play right away with no registration required. One click and you're in. Honest. Here, try it.
  • Plays right in your browser. If you'd rather not download the casino software to your hard disk, you don't have to. The games play right in your web browser. Nice.
  • Works on Macs. The play-in-browser games are MacOS compatible! Before Bovada, Mac users were pretty much out of luck for gambling online. Not any more.
  • No popups. I'll never understand why companies think it's a good idea to annoy their visitors, but that's standard practice at most online casinos. Bovada is one of the rare exceptions -- no popups, no popouts, no browser hijacking, just the website with no B.S.

All in all, I think Bovada is the best bet for U.S. players.

Las Vegas Coupons

Last update: July 2017

Players' Clubs

When you sign up for the Player's Club at a casino (which is totally free), the casino will usually give you a coupon book with some choice, valuable coupons.  For example, they frequently include "match plays", which let you make a $20 bet for only $10.  Also, when you sign up for the Players' Club, the casino will often mail you offers for free or deeply-discounted rooms for your next trip.  I've gotten offers for free rooms at casinos I've never bet a dime in.

American Casino Guide

The American Casino Guide is an annual book/magazine with info on every casino in the U.S., and with a dizzying array of coupons for those casinos, too.  The book costs $13, and the coupons alone are worth way more than that.  Here's a list of the 2017 coupons.  You can order the book for $16 on Amazon.

Las Vegas Advisor

When you subscribe to the Las Vegas Advisor, they send you a big, very valuable coupon book.  Online subscriptions are $37.  Here's a list of the coupons.


Vegas4Locals has tons of coupons you can print for free.  And despite the name, the coupons work for tourists, too.
