Newkirk's Notes

Hello From Las Vegas! - March is college basketball month here in Las Vegas. We're the home to four (count them, four) college basketball tournaments: Pac-12 (Go Oregon Ducks), Mountain West (Go UNLV Rebels), West Coast Conference (the one with Gonzaga and BYU in it), and the Western Athletic Conference (teams most of you have not heard of).

Then, we roll right into March Madness, the craziest four days of college basketball of the year.

We're keeping a close eye on the pending Supreme Court decision on whether sports betting will be allowed on a state-by-state basis. Right now, Nevada is the only state with wide-open sports betting. I'm torn on this. Obviously, as someone who promotes tourism here, I like the thought that we have a corner on the market. However, I'm a state's rights guy as long as one state does not infringe upon another.

If available, imagine it will be more quickly legalized in states with strong casino gaming presence. New Jersey is at the forefront of the fight. Sports betting is taxed very low here in Nevada, which allows the casinos to offer you decent odds on your bets. If other states legalize it with an eye on tax revenue, you'll be able to bet. However, you won't be getting Nevada odds.

We'll certainly lose some east coast sports betters to Atlantic City. However, the atmosphere of being in Las Vegas for March Madness, with all Las Vegas has to offer (and a chance for many to escape winter weather for our spring-like temps), I doubt we'll see much fall-off.

The Gambling Numbers Are In, What They Mean To YOU - Each year, the State of Nevada tallys and releases numbers on what areas have the loosest and tightest slots. As gaming taxes have to be paid to the state, they know how much the machines took in, and how much they paid out.

I'm going to devote my column this week (and next) to going over where the best odds are, where you should (or should not) be gambling, and which players clubs you should (or should not) be considering. We're going to go far beyond the obvious. Almost everyone knows that if you get to the locals casinos, you'll find lower limits and looser slots (not to mention cheaper food and drink).

However, for some of you, downtown is as far as you go. If so, what are your better places to play? And, what about those of you who never leave The Strip? Where can you get a good gamble, and where should you avoid? Let's get started!

How safe is Las Vegas water? It certainly doesn't taste good. What is in it?

Craig Bunnett


Ted Responds:

It is HARD water. It has tons of minerals in it. The white ring around Lake Mead wasn't painted there. That is from the minerals in the water that stuck to the canyon walls as the water level has fallen. While our water originates as snow in the mountains of Colorado and Wyoming, it takes a journey of many hundreds of miles down the Colorado River (and through the Grand Canyon), before we pump it out of Lake Mead. Picking up plenty of minerals along the way from our western rocky lands.
