As a major betting event, it would only be fitting to take in the big race somewhere on the Vegas Strip, which after all, is the spiritual home of gambling. What a great second prize to being in Louisville.

If you’re feeling really lavish, there are also some skyboxes you can rent out to watch all the action unfold. One even comes with hospitality staff to serve beverages.

How about a bite to eat while the horse racing takes place? The MGM Grand’s Sports Deli also has screens for viewing while you tuck into New York style cuisine, including sandwiches, hotdogs and bagels.

Undead in Las Vegas: Zombie Activities and Attractions

February 8, 2018

Zombie Activities and AttractionsWhen you think of Las Vegas, you think of glitz and glamour – you think of somewhere high rollers and celebrities flock to for a weekend of indulgence and excitement. You don’t normally think of flesh-eating zombies. But the ties between the living dead and living it large actually run fairly deep. There’s a whole host of zombie themed activities in Las Vegas, and the ties between the city of lights and zombies continue into popular culture. Let’s explore!

Adventure Combat Ops

There are a fair few zombie themed activities in Las Vegas, including the Adventure Combat Ops, which allows players to dress up as special ops and form the last line of defense against a marauding zombie army. The simulation recreates a post-apocalyptic city and advertises itself as a completely immersive experience. Players are transported into a world of the near future, where zombies have wiped out most of civilisation. The game also serves as a life lesson as to how the special ops might operate, with state of the art equipment used and information provided on tactical manoeuvres. Not only that, for those who are bitten by the zombies, shallow graves are promised off the beaten path in the desert – they’re kidding of course, but that only amps up the excitement.

The Zombie Vegas Connection

In fact, the tradition of zombies and Vegas isn’t a new one. The sandbox zombie game developed by Blue Castle Games, Dead Rising 2 is set in Las Vegas. Protagonist Chuck becomes stuck in a series of malls that make up the entertainment complex in the 2010 Xbox 360 game, and his trips to various casinos are an integral part of collecting anti-zombie medication and defeating villains. Moreover, the Betway Lost Vegas online slot carries on the tradition, with the slots themed around an outbreak taking place in Vegas. Even films have capitalised on the juxtaposition of the city of Las Vegas and the zombie outbreak, with the 2016 film It Stains the Sand Red, distributed by Dark Sky Films, focusing on a zombie apocalypse occurring in the desert around Vegas. The film received a 58% score on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes.

Fear the Walking Dead

The AMC sponsored Fear the Walking Dead Survival Attraction, which is part of the Vegas Experience also allows aspiring zombie slayers out into a post-apocalyptic zombie world. This time, as part of a multisensory experience, players are locked in an escape room as a 4D “thrill attraction”. The game then opens up to be both part of a maze, and part of an interactive video game experience. The attraction takes the immersive and scary aspects of the AMC show and combines them with a skills based multiplayer game and a live skills based game. The attraction takes the core theme of escaping zombies in the near future and uses both physical and digital means to create an atmospheric experience.

Escape or Die

Escape room game Escape or Die also continues the theme, with even signing up to the marketing and connecting on social media embracing the post-apocalyptic theme. Located just off the illustrious and renowned Las Vegas Strip, the game features three levels of scariness and difficulty: The Next Civilisation, Zombie Takeover, and Biohazard. Each adventure lasts one hour and tickets range between $35-$40, with regular sales promotions offering $10 off, allowing the zombie apocalypse to be avoided at a reduced rate.

Zombie Burlesque

For something slightly different, yet in keeping with the zombies in Vegas theme, Zombie Burlesque offers the immersive zombie experience but without the fear factor that the other events and activities promise. The comedy musical, from the brains of the people who created Vegas! The Show, crosses zombies with the circus, with traditional burlesque for an entertaining show. Vegas is known for its high energy performances and Zombie Burlesque allows zombie fans to indulge in the living dead without having to leave their seats.

Las Vegas is a city of many talents, from hosting world class performers with Vegas residencies, to attracting clientele from across the world to sample the lifestyle that the city has to offer. The zombie connection is just another layer in the multi-faceted city of Las Vegas. With so many ways to indulge your passion for zombies in Vegas, it really is the perfect weekend destination.

Horse Racing Betting Tips

January 15, 2018

 race-trackOftentimes, the horse racing is seen just through the glasses of the betting scene. The fact is the horse racing rises above betting. The display and excellence of watching competitors on the steeds has no rivals. Incredible creatures – horses – love running and are reproduced to run quickly. Before anybody takes to betting, they will ideally set aside the opportunity to acknowledge what they are encountering from a visual viewpoint.

All things considered, horse racing exists since human beings love to bet on the horses. It’s a an engagement of technique, examination and figuring out how to deal with one’s assets keeping in mind the end goal to amplify benefits. That is the thing that the amusement intends to the genuine horseplayer. At the opposite end of the range is the beginner horseplayer who basically appreciates setting off to the races, taking in the air and tossing down a couple of dollars for a shot cheer and gain a couple of dollars consequently.

Here are a couple of free advices for all.

  • Don’t buy information at new online casino and betting shops. The betting industry is brimming with tipsters who are more than willing to share their picks for a charge. The demonstration of paying that charge guarantees the purchaser they will be a washout before the races even begin.
  • Learn to deal with form guide. There is something exceptionally energizing and satisfying about unraveling measurable data and attempting to disengage a victor from a full field of stallions. It’s requires investment and cash to figure out how to utilize the Form Guide, however it’s opportunity and cash well spent, particularly when the champs begin coming a pleasant chances.
  • Don’t get involved in each race. Everyone has a constrained bankroll. Rather than attempting to spread that bankroll over an expansive determination of races, the punter should concentrate on distinguishing the races that have a stallion that appears to have the most obvious opportunity to win at the most noteworthy conceivable chances and making bigger bets on those races.
  • Listen to tips of betting experts at best live casino. If you don’t bet at the track face to face. You should realize that most online sports books and dashing productions have an occupant autonomous master (handicapper), who is paid to give free “hustling tips today” for the advantage of its clients. While it’s not prescribed to wager indiscriminately on each of the master’s picks, they can be utilized to help seclude steeds that have a sensible possibility of winning.
  • Don’t bet only on favorites. Statistically, top choices win around 34% of the time. When they do win, the chances will be short, intermittently sufficiently low to be viewed as an underlay. Reliably wagering top picks is a losing recommendation.
  • Care of betting value. Punters (bettor or gambler) can win considerably by horse betting that are overlaid. Look at this example: There dependably is by all accounts a steed or two sitting at chances of between 4-1 and 7-1, which appears to be high in connection to the stallion’s morning line chances and current shape. On the off chance that a steed resembles a genuine contender whose chances are higher than it ought to be, that may be an overlaid horse worth wagering.
  • Serious betting versus leisure betting. Serious punters should concentrate individually races and searching for champs with 75% of their bankroll set on win bets and the other 25% going towards lucrative outlandish bets. Then again, recreational punters should search with the expectation of complimentary steed dashing tips, complete a bit of disabling and go for the energy by betting 75% of their bankroll on lucrative exotics and the other 25% on win/put bets.
