All casinos have minimum set limits and you will notice that the nicer the casino the higher the limits. For example if you want to play black jack during the day most casinos have the minimum set at $5-10 per hand. Once the night arrives you will find that the minimums will move upwards for 20-25 for the higher end casinos and stay at 5-10 for the lower end casinos.
Keep in mind smaller, lower limit casinos, also have fewer people but want to keep you there so the drinks are flowing from the moment you sit down.A few low limit casinos that are still great at serving drinks pronto are: Casino Royale, Imperial Palace, Oshea's, Binnions.
Most great shows in vegas will run you $150+ from all the cirque du soleil to the performer shows like celine dion that cost an average 400 per ticket for a balcony seat :( There are some free shows and great values for your money. I highly recommend seeing the Treasure Island pirate show, the Bellagio fountain show, the Rio cabaret show. They are all free, check websites for showtimes.
If you wish to go see a show, the tickets for tonight booth is always a good bet to save a little. Here are a few choices that are entertaining without going overboard. Divas - Frank Marino, Carrot top, Penn and Teller.
