I am planning a week (Wednesday to Wednesday or Tuesday to Tuesday) in Las Vegas later this year (2017) and am wondering what sort of budget I should aim for.


  • All accommodation is paid for.
  • Shows and attractions are paid for.
  • Gambling will be done, maybe an hour a day - mostly on the Blackjack table (lowest stake available) or slot machines (I will join one Poker tournament but entry will be prepaid).
  • Food can be basic, buffets are good.
  • Alcohol intake will be relatively high. We tend to drink about 5-10 liters (10-20 pints) of beer per night and I am sure there will be a bit of tequila and whisky in there too, although a couple of low intake days may also be included due to hang overs.

I expect to spend most of my time on The Strip or Fremont Street but off the strip ideas are more than welcome.

    Get the buffet passes for any hotel on the strip. They rock. – Gayot Fow Jan 9 '17 at 12:38
  • @GayotFow any links to these passes? – Kevin Anthony Oppegaard Rose Jan 9 '17 at 13:29

    I won't Answer cuz it'll get downvoted for not being able to quote official sources, but...for what you describe, I would allow at least $350 USD. – Johns-305 Jan 9 '17 at 15:12
