I have been entertaining the idea of going to Las Vegas to build my bank roll because of the lack of casinos in my area but I have been having second thoughts because of the $20 dollar taxi rides, 40 dollar a night rooms (if you're lucky) and plain ticket. It seems like a fun idea to fly in to town and staying there for months betting nickels and trying to grow but after the cost of living expenses I'm worried I will come home in shame after having a 2 month break even period. At 40 dollars a night that's a cold shower. If I were to do this playing rated would be a must as I cannot afford food on that bank roll, let alone a hotel so comps are going to be a big deal. That's after I get an ID of course, but I want to think this through before I commit.
