I expect to spend a lot on the hotel room, entertainment, dining and, of course, gambling. Are there any discounts available for seniors, so I can stretch the limited resources from my pension and Social Security? LRO’G, Chicago IL

A: No senior discounts on gambling, so you may want to set a limit to your casino play. Since you’re not an pro, make small bets to extend the time, investing maybe $100 a day. The good news is that saving on senior discounts almost everywhere in Sin City could provide you with more gambling money.

Simply, when booking your room, then checking in, night-clubbing and dining, always research and on-site ask first for senior discounts. You’ll be happily surprised that just about all hotels, theaters and restaurants offer lower prices to seniors. Of course, the reason is that they know you’ll play it all back in the casino.
