More Vegas Resort Fee Hikes: Increases Up to 20% & Calculating the “True Rate”

Caesar’s Entertainment Vegas Resort Fee Increases 2017 Ah Vega$! There was once a time when the gaming tables subsidized the rest of the experience. You could find cheap food, cheap rooms and generally affordable everything. Well it was affordable, but in the end you probably dropped some money in the casino.
