Yay! You are coming to Las Vegas and we are so happy to hear about that trip forthcoming! In Vegas, there is so much to do and see that the mind experiences a different sense of nirvana from the moment you land here until you leave, and maybe beyond. Don’t believe us? Here are five things that the city of angels would teach your mind to condition itself to. Ready for the mind-boggling adventure in a nice way?Your mind is a gambler

Table games, blackjack, poker or baccarat, your mind wouldn’t be intimated here and would want to try it once when in Las Vegas. If you aren’t sure whether gambling would make you win, there are free lessons hosted by all the casinos that you can take advantage of. You will get a lowdown on the rules of each game, how to sit at a table and where at a table would be the best seat too, preparations as well to teach you more about betting, which won’t overwhelm you!

Your mind learns about real illusions

Distances in Las Vegas aren’t that close as they appear to be. Walking all the way from Bellagio to the famous MGM Grand isn’t advised. Your GPS mapping system may tell you otherwise, but in the middle you’d wished a cab came and hailed you off. Miles in Las Vegas are long and this is because the construction of buildings and houses are very close to one another. So check with a real local and let not your mind sway with GPS promises for the real distance!

Your mind opens up to new experiences

People, places and the intimidating moments, your mind opens up to a plethora of experiences quite away from your culture; surprisingly not shocking anymore. From strip clubs to business meets happening around, fancy tours and live loud musicals, and more, Las Vegas opens your mind to many things you thought you would never see, hear or experience in your life.

The mind turns into a hunter

Your mind prepares you to attack, and to get most out of the trip to Vegas. It doesn’t take more than an hour or so to familiarise with the climes around, the best of Las Vegas hotels you are in and the casino you visit. You automatically know where to look for the washroom, the vending machine and the seating zone as well- how? It just happens and that’s the magic of Vegas over your mind! And to make things easier, the Big Bus tour down the strip is a must do; your mind would auto want it!

Your mind teaches you how to get free drinks

Why pay for drinks at the slot table the video poker or at the table where the games are spread, when you can get them for free. The aim here by the cocktail waitress is to get you to play more, so they earn more. Your mind in an auto mode gets into the same and when it knows the waitress will come with more free drinks so you play more, it wouldn’t allow you to go to the casino bar prior to the games. So play along and get all the free drinks you want. But if you are attending the casino dance floor, let the live music and dances happen, which is when a complimentary happy round is passed about!

Whoever is watching this lovely city has kept it running with amazement! Las Vegas is a surprise each time you go there; we aren’t kidding!
