Steve Bourie has again produced a valuable guide for casino players around the United States. With over 700 casinos listed, this 500-page guide has phone numbers, web pages, games offered (table and slot), hours, accommodations, and amenities for all American casinos. This isn't a casino history book like "Nevada's Golden Age of Gambling," this is a newly updated and current guide for casino goers.

The guide is more than just maps and directions to new casinos, the book also offers a breakdown of US casinos' most popular games and how to play them, from blackjack and craps, to slot machines and video poker.

In addition, the book also contains more than $1,000 in valuable casino coupons. If you travel at all and enjoy casinos, this book pays for itself in coupons and offers great information.

There are far fewer 2 for 1 buffet coupons, which is the main reason I buy the book. The Atlantic City coupons are very scarce. Only one decent coupon. There still are matchplays though and free slot play coupons that make the book well worth its price. The guide to casinos is first rate, as are the articles about gaming/strategies.

I've been buying this book for several years, often ordering an extra to get double coupons. While it's true that there aren't as many coupons as in past years, the book still pays for itself many times over. We love the El Cortez, and the Flame steakhouse ... and this book makes their "good" prices GREAT.

Bought it and did not use. Most of the coupons for Las Vegas was for shows and off strip casinos. Really nothing worth making a special trip for if you are not already going to one of the casinos.

I purchase this product every year with our trips to Vegas. I have not seen this guide anywhere else more inexpensive than the patrons selling on Amazon.

Sorry, I wish I didn't buy this guide for when we went to Las Vegas as I found it totally useless! Its big and heavy to carry around, and I never found one place to even use one coupon! The popular places on the strip that "did" have a coupon were for something so off the wall that is wasn't what I and most people even use. Other places that had coupons we couldn't even find. I even bought his Las Vegas map and those casino's weren't listed on his map! Just a total waste of money this guide book was, and sorry I bought it. Since I bought it a month before we went to look it over, so now I can't even return it since its past the 30 day return policy!

Bought this mainly for the Buy 1 Get 1 on the NYNY roller coaster ride. The ride itself is $14, so this book pretty much paid for itself at just over $10. Found some other good free play coupons as well as some B1G1 at buffets. Some coupons are void or changed , so be sure to check the ACG website. I found this out for the Hooters Casino, instead of the free play(which was on "select" machines with stipulations) you now redeem the coupon for 10 wings(a $10 value). Good value for this book if your going to Vegas.

Every time we go to Las Vegas or Laughlin, we buy the American Casino guide. We love the match plays (who doesn't like FREE money?) and the food coupons keep us from going crazy on the food budget. My favorite thing about it is that we often try new places because we have a coupon! I accidentally left mine in the restroom by the sink at the Rio in Vegas last time we went - so if you find it, enjoy! A good value - worth the money for sure.
