Vacation like a high roller at Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort. The Executive Room has a balcony, where you’ll feel like you’ll always come out on top – a great attitude to have when you roll down to the roulette table. No matter how the cards fall during your stay, dancing at the Losers’ Lounge, plowing pins at the Riverside Lanes and checking out classic rides at Don Laughlin’s Classic Car Museum will give you one jackpot of a holiday.

If you’ve come to Laughlin to gamble, you’ve got to stay at Aquarius. The overnight itself is a sure bet – panorama suites with floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the Laughlin Strip or mountain range. The only reason you’d fold on the restaurants is if that’s the method you choose to eat a slice at River Rock Pizza & Pasta. But enough about the adjacent amenities; the largest 24-hour gaming resort in the city has 57,000sqft (5,295sqm) of space for you to win your first million.

After a day in the wilderness, a live show featuring internationally acclaimed artists at Edgewater feels like the best of both worlds. Before the show, laze around your tower suite, gazing down at the Colorado River long enough to pencil in a stroll along the riverwalk later in the day. Zero-pressure gaming awaits in the arcade if the casino floor is something you’d like to avoid. After the show, it’s good to know that a 24/7 diner is always ready to serve you a quick bedtime snack.

Not many hotels allow you to snag a budget stay and walk out with a few extra grand in your pocket, but Tropicana does. Measured modesty in the classic king room will give you a restful sleep without breaking the bank. Franks and fries at Dip & Dogs will help you pinch more pennies as well. Take the extra pocket change you’ve accumulated, and dab your way to the bank at the bingo hall.

Have your own little gold rush at Laughlin’s Golden Nugget. You’re already a winner the moment you step from your riverview suite down into your poolside private cabana. Plop down in front of your favorite slot machine, drain a few quarters, and down a few drinks. What’s the best way to top off a night of dancing and drinking at Gold Diggers? A walk across the street for a greasy In-N-Out Burger.

Float your way from Lake Mohave down to Days Inn in Bullhead City, where you’ll never have to navigate rough waters. Simple guest rooms with sitting areas are all you need to wake up refreshed before heading down for a free breakfast. You’re welcome to be on your way ASAP, but, with so many natural wonders within a short drive’s distance, you should sit for a spell at the outdoor pool.

Wave across the Colorado River to Arizona from your tower suite at Harrah’s. Two pools, a private sand beach and a spa will keep your skin warm, wet and willfully relaxed. Pizza, steaks and some of Guy Fieri’s twisted Mexican dishes are served up at the six restaurants at Harrah’s. We assure you that you don’t need to gamble to have a good time at Harrah’s – but a little three-card stud never hurt anyone, right?

Spend a little time in Cali when you stay at Rio del Sol Inn. Only an hour from Spirit Mountain, this hotel on Historic Route 66 is a fine place to hang your hat for the night. Soak up the sun or stars in the outdoor pool or hot tub. You’ll nab a discounted meal at the Wagon Wheel diner next door if you’ve got a hankering for burgers and beer.
