So, we present interesting facts about Las Vegas …
Las Vegas was founded just over a hundred years ago. All Las Vegas casinos are located not in the city itself, but near, in the town of Paradise… No one of more than eighty casinos in Las Vegas has no windows or watches. Archie Caras in 1992 came to a casino with $ 50 in his pocket and won forty million. Unfortunately for him, he went into excitement, he could not stop in time and again lost everything. According to statistics, about 87 % of tourists visiting the main city of Nevada, at least somewhere, somehow, will play gambling.

To spend this pleasure, it will cost only $ 60. You can not even bother about witnesses and a banquet. According to statistics, more than 35 chapels in Las Vegas for an hour played about 13 weddings.
Las Vegas strikes a large number of fountains, artificial lakes and waterfalls. But Nevada is known as American desert state. Where does so much water? The answer is – from the sewage system. All drains in the city are divided into “gray” and “black”. The first ones, after use for household needs in the wash basin, shower and bath, are filtered, cleaned, chlorinated – and played by jets in the fountains.
Las Vegas has more than half of the world’s largest hotels and 17 of the 20 largest American hotels. In total, in the city 150 thousand hotel rooms. In Chinese culture, the figure “4” is considered unlucky. For serious players from China continued to visit the city in these hotels as «Wynn Las Vegas» and «Rio», there are no floors to the ill-fated number for Asians.
