At every major hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, the true attraction is the casino. It's where the profits of a hotel rises and falls along the wallets of guests and visitors. The unusual look of the 85,000 square foot casino at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel is marked by three legs of the replica Eiffel Tower coming through the roof and planting its feet on the gaming floor.

All the gambling diversions are here including 100 table games, a race and sports book and more than 2,200 slot machines. The 40-foot high ceiling, painted to emulate a Parisian sky, encloses the casino's cobblestone pathways, ornate street signs and replica of the Pont Alexandre III bridge.

It wouldn't be right to visit Las Vegas and not gamble even if it's only at the rows of slot machines. So with a few more hours to spare before checking out, I attempted to at least break even on about four hundred dollars. For the first time I came out ahead and knew to stop at that point. Then it was off to take in the another last look at Las Vegas Boulevard at night.

Iron street lamps and lights behind the windows of the faux
