With the economy in the shape that it’s in America and the fact that more and more people are being laid off or let go from their jobs, taking a trip is the last thing on many people’s mind – especially if it involves live poker. In these times, not too many people are up for flying or driving long distances just to play in a poker tournament or ring games. But the truth is that if you’ve got a job and some extra money then there may never be a better time to go and do this.
That’s because casinos in major gambling destinations like Las Vegas and Atlantic City are desperate to get people to come to their establishments. They are so desperate in fact that they are dropping the rates of their hotel rooms to record lows. Some of the best casinos in Las Vegas are letting people stay in their rooms for as little as $20 to $30. And you won’t find better deals than this at any point when the economy gets better.
Flights are extremely cheap too since airlines are just as desperate to get people to travel. Some people are getting round trip flight tickets along with a four or five night stay in places like Las Vegas and Atlantic City for as cheap as $300 or $400. There has definitely never been a better time to go and schedule a trip to somewhere where you’d like to play in a poker tournament.
Now obviously if you don’t have the extra money you don’t want to be spending a bunch of cash on poker and flights. However, if you’ve got a job and would really like to play some live poker then now is certainly the time to do it because there’s no telling if deals will ever be this good again.
