What a time in Vegas for the SuperBowl, not just that I won on the Pats, but just the lifestyle really grabbed me in. I own lighting and landscaping businesses and I saw a tremendous opportunity (lighting wise) out there. A lot of hotels and casinos have made attempts but now have all outdated and broken sections. 

I was thinking of possibly getting a time share or even making the move out here for 6 months at a time (Feb-July) - Anyone have any suggestions?

I am great with baseball season (7/8 years in the green) and would love to come down for maybe a 6 month period.

I will post a youtube series and be a more mature College Gambler with more of my own work ethic to make me $$ and gambling being my side hobby that I can afford. Thanks Ahead.

Thanks for the tip! This is right up my alley. Im paying $2100 for a 2 bedroom apartment right now in Long Island. It's crazy how much I would save from savings alone each year. 

The only thing that stops me is family. I am single, 30 years old, no children. But, I feel like everyone would think the worst because no one has faith in anyone surviving out there.

Not that hard to do that, but still, the odds are against you. Good luck.

7/8 years in the green is an excellent run. I consider Baseball to be the greatest betting opportunity in Sports wagering. So many value dogs in Baseball. GL and keep us updated.

If this is for Real.

Find a real job like you plan great but make it a must

If not your line work do not worry, lot of jobs the ones no

think is good enough for them Dishwashing, car washes, gas station attendants clerks heck flip burgers or bus tables. what ever to make the rent.

then your roll stays intact ...

just a word from someone who can literally go anywhere and adapt , survive and thrive.

My mentor was a great man but not found in those history pages.

our family referred to him as Harold or Dirty harry case depending he was not a picture of perfection but he was smart. He told me this,

do something no one else wants to do whenever you are new to an area. You always have a job and find work .

when you do this you solidify a position a roof over your head food in your stomach and a few dollars you can work with.

 then you can make contacts solidify a better Job make more become bigger and succeed.

I have used this mentality to survive many tough scrapes

all over came through crap when most bet I would not.

allowed me to meet many interesting souls and got to hear many great stories, found many friends and contacts and allowed me my freedom.

No about 9th or 10th. I do very well in poker and the sports. I appreciate the insights. 

I own a few businesses here in New York so I know I can easily do my lighting business. Landscaping seems rough since its probably mostly trimming palm trees, no real grass to maintain. 

I would definitely golf caddy at some of the country clubs. I also have a nice bank roll. I could pay my rent for the 6 months up front for my 6 month lease so I just worry about the regular bills (food, gas, phone, cable) - The only thing that is stopping be from leaving tomorrow is all of my family is here in NY. 

I would be looked at as a junkie or crazy person for trying something NEW and doing something that makes me HAPPY.

I think what you are proposing is much more realistic and a better plan than the CG's of the world who go out to LV and expect to make a living betting on sports.  Caddying, bartending, or even setting up a landscaping business is a good idea to have as your primary source of income and  you can bet on the side for supplemental income.  

Make sure you have someone responsible and you trust back in LI to run your businesses if you do move to LV for six months.  BOL dude.

You don't need to move to Vegas,be like most on Covers and internet gamble.Vegas is a town of scumbags and posers,you'll be happier living elsewhere.Don't think the lights are your calling card.

I am sick though of the local bookie action here in NY. I have been cut off 5 times for winning 10K in a month and 2 guys still owe me 24K+ combined. 

The mental part of the betting aspect is gone when I am in Vegas because I don't have to worry about getting paid. I was thinking of getting a rewards card at 5 different casinos, each comp me 3-4 nights a month would almost be my months stay! LOL - Don't know how realistic that could end up being but yes, I would definitely not go to VEGAS saying I am going to become a professional gambler and pay my way with gambling.

I have worked since caddying on golf courses at 12 years old. I am almost 31 now, I would definitely need something like caddying in the morning to keep me busy and active. I am also a great golfer so it will get me free golf 1x a week at each course I work at. 

I am sitting here in my apartment looking out to the ocean pondering, should I really make the move? I would come back to NY for my busiest season (christmas). Feb-July would be ideal for Vegas for me. Damn, if my immediate family wouldn't judge, I would do it tomorrow. But I am going to have to explain how I am not going there to GAMBLE. Very tough sell.

Looking to make the drive across country and set up shop for the first week of March! Going to call some apartments now and see what the deal is to get it set up. I will make a Youtube channel to record the trip and this first 6-month adventure! It's going to be awesome! 

My dog Lilly will love the new terrain! haha

Transients and every scumbag from California- Thousands of meth heads live in the sewers there and they come out at night, ya can't buy gas without some body asking for money. Two of my kids went to UNLV, they loved it at first, then couldn't graduate fast enough and both say they hate the place and will never go back- I spent 50% of my time there for about 25 years and still have to go out there occasionally for business and my wife flatly refuses to EVER go with me, and she'll go to Columbia and every third world shIthole on earth with me. It's a sh!thole-

Long island sucks, but Vegas????

I'd say you'd go home in about 2 years- everyone does.

==============================================

Your action to achieve that goal will require other play than the sportsbooks.No comps from that and you should already know that.

You could grind out some VideoPoker play for a buffet or two and a couple comped nights at Boyd or Caesars..Don't even count free rooms anymore cause the resort fees and possible parking fees,you're better off in your apt..

Would be a full-time job to bounce around the local casinos for comps/food/reward days/calculating this and that to survive.Let alone trying to have your own business and the time for that.

Hey but that said,Best Wishes Keep us posted

Yeah I have a friend who is willing to try it out with me. He doesn't gamble. But we can both caddy at the golf courses together, maybe bartend at night if needed. My sports betting I think in 1 month would pay our rent for 3 months. I will definitely keep everyone posted, looking at 6 month leases currently....

When my daughter was at UNLV she caddied for Par Mates- She got $600 a round. I don't know if that was the price or the tips, but that's what she told me..This is actually her:

She also got paid hundreds of dollars to sit by pools-  Just sit there with other girls to create an atmosphere I guess.. free drinks and food too. I don't know if these jobs would be options for you.  She saved well over 150k while going to school out there-  I was talking to her one day and she says "dad, have you ever heard of a football player named Joe Montana?" I said "yeah, I've heard of him", lol and she said "I caddied for him today, he was very nice"

There a strong Bar tending union there and you'll start out on the midnight shift at the El Cortez.. If there's an opening. 

One of my kids interned at the El Cortez, she was doing Hotel Management at UNLV...  On her first day she saw the carpet in the lobby moving and she asked what is that amazing pattern in the carpet? Her boss told her, those are lice- We got lice in the carpet there...

You just don't start out Bar Tending at the  Mandarin Oriental or the Four Seasons- You start part time at the bottom barrel places
