If you're fed up with losing at video poker, why not head down to the arcade and at least have some fun while you're throwing away money. You gotta have a better chance there because you're only playing for an outdated XBox and not millions of dollars, right?

Wrong. Your fine ass is getting SCAMMED.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Vegas has to be a nightmare to protect. And I'm not just talking about violence, I'm talking about thieves, cheats, and crooks, too. So many people filter in and out of casino floors, doors wide open to the streets, that I have no idea how they actually handle the volume.

Turns out, they don't really.

Surveillance rooms in Vegas casinos are sometimes so lightly staffed that it's not uncommon for just one person to be working at a time, which means that break time leaves the rooms completely empty for stretches up to an hour. How is that possible?

When someone talks about their "little black book," it's usually some outdated TV show that's referring to someone's notebook of sexual conquests. Gross. What a gross thing.

The Little Black Book in Las Vegas is way, way different.

Macau is an interesting place, one that hopefully my bosses will send me to in the near future. It's one of the only places you can gamble while in China, almost half of the GDP is revenue from gambling, and it's small (28.8 square km).

It's beautiful, it's entertaining, it even has cathedrals and an incredible food scene.

But there's an even better reason to live there. Wanna know what it is?

If you find yourself on one of the planes in a fleet of white unmarked 737s at McCarran International Airport, and you don't have a security clearance, it's time to panic.

You just found yourself on a flight to one of the most secretive places on the planet.

Did you know that the Founder and CEO of FedEx once took the company's last $5,000 to Vegas and bet it in blackjack in a bid to save the company?

It's true. Here's the wild story.

A few weeks ago, we were surprised to hear that someone managed to get an FDA compliant hangover cure to market, so we wrote about it. It's called Morning Recovery. Since then, we've had the opportunity to sit down with one of the founders, Sisun Lee, for a drink in L.A.

Just one drink. But he did give us samples, which I've now tried β€” and it works.

Yeah, this has nothing to do with Las Vegas, or gambling, or anything really. It's just... well, I watched it and now I'd like to curse you all to the same fate too.

Check out this puppet with a live human face:

The Bellagio Fountain usually hovers right around the top of everyone's Top-Things-To-Do-In-Las-Vegas lists, and for good reason. It's a huge spectacle that blows minds everyday, and the nitty-gritty facts of it are even more impressive.

Like what?

Like the fact that it has 1214 jets. It has 4500 lights. It has 8000 meters of pipe. It can shoot it's watery load up 460 ft. in the air. It covers 8 acres and has 22 million gallons of water in it, and is considered a man-made lake. 30 people are tasked with keeping it running (including scuba divers), and it's estimated that it costs anywhere between $10,000 to $15,000 a night to use it. That's up to $400k a month.

But, the best thing about the Bellagio Fountain is something so expensive and rare that you didn't even know it existed β€” until now.

When thinking about food, putting it in terms of how much it weighs makes something click in my mind. If you eat a quarter pounder, for instance, you leave at least a quarter pound heavier than when you walked into the restaurant (aka McDonald's).

This decadent Las Vegas dessert, however, will send you packing an extra 1.5 pounds heavier than you were before, and that's just dessert. Who knows what you shoveled into your gob before you decided to go ahead a splurge on something sweet.

Let me just say this: Just because you were an engineer at Tesla, that doesn't mean you can engineer everything. Like, a car is way different than food and drugs, right? Right!

That being said, you need to be pretty smart to be an engineer for Tesla, and being smart is the first step in doing smart things β€” and creating a cure for something is definitely something you need to be smart for. Or lucky. Or both.

Either way, this ex-Tesla engineer is giving curing hangovers a shot, and he has a leg-up on other remedies: his solution is FDA compliant.

Or you could just not drink enough to get a hang over... right?

Can you imagine putting all the money and effort into building a casino on the Las Vegas Strip just to stop after 70% was completed... and abandon it?

I can't. But that's exactly what happened to the the Fontainebleau Las Vegas, which has had its 63 stories used as a firefighter training ground for the last eight years. But now it's been sold β€” and maybe that initial investment wasn't entirely a waste.

Seafood is delicious, no matter how gross it truly sounds. For real though β€” crabs are just giant sea-spiders, and we break open their spider legs to eat their spider meat. Oysters have the consistency of really impressive boogers, the kind that feel like they were attached to your brain when you finally get them out of your nose. Shrimp have actual poop that you eat unless they're "de-veined." Fish are slimy and have parasites that only get killed off during the cooking process.

But holy shit, it all tastes so good if you can just forget for an hour what you're actually putting in your mouth. Kind of like hotdogs, you know?

Luckily Las Vegas is a great place to forget the origin of what's on your plate for an hour. That is to say, it's great for seafood. In particular, it's at its best at this one, specific location.

You'd think you'd be able to just walk into any casino in Las Vegas and play some poker.

You'd be wrong.

But then again, you might be right again since this Sin City casino re-opened its poker room after a two year hiatus from the game. We don't really know, this article isn't exactly about that. But if you're lucky, maybe we'll include that info too.

Sometimes you've just had it with craft beers like Sam Adams and Budweiser, and you just need someone with a beard to mix you up a cocktail straight from a different era. Usually when you feel like that it's when you wake up in the morning, but luckily for you β€” it's not morning, and you're in Las Vegas.

If you want the best, most serious, maybe beard haired cocktail in Sin City, this is where you have to goddamn go.

I'm really into listing things, which is probably why writing for the Internet is right up my alley. I've listed Best Steakhouses, Best Places To Go Off The Grid, the Most Thrilling Places in Las Vegas... you name it, I've listed it.

When it comes to the best ice cream in Las Vegas, I thought I would have to do yet another list. It turns out, I don't.

This isn't a list.

There's one clear winner β€” and they're not even from Vegas.

The Fremont just found another lucky winner, awarding a man identified as "Rodolfo T" $11.3 million after playing an IGT Megabucks slot machine. Fremont's VP and general manager had this to say:

"The Fremont has awarded many thousands of jackpots throughout its 60-year history in Las Vegas, but none quite like this."

So. How much did Rodolfo T have to spend to make $11.3 million? Brace yourselves, because you gotta spend money to make money:
