Great Casino Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Great Casino Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Posted on 22/01/13 - by Theodor Mavrodis Features

You might spend the night sleeping on the couch if your idea of a hot Valentine’s Day date is to hit up the craps tables.

But don’t completely rule out a night of romance at the casino.

With a little thought and planning you can have a great date and you might just be able to sneak off for some gambling action yourself.

1. Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend

It’s hard to go wrong with diamond jewelry if you want to go big with a gift for your special Valentine. It’s easy to find stores and jewelers just a few steps away in many Vegas casinos.

Sure, you’ll pay more when buying jewelry at the Venetian mall or the shops at the Bellagio, but she’ll appreciate the extra effort and attention.

You can also pair the gift with an amazing meal at one of the many world-class restaurants Vegas has to offer.

2. Vegas, Baby, Vegas

This one applies to both guys and girls, but sometimes the best Valentine’s Day gift (especially for couples) is a trip to Vegas itself.

Make sure that special someone knows the trip is the gift and who knows? If you win big at the blackjack tables or at roulette, you might just splurge on a once-in-a-lifetime fancy dinner and some beautiful bling.

3. Dinner and a Show

Vegas is known for the great restaurants and entertainment options in its mega casinos but you’ll find plenty of other casinos around the world that offer fine dining, movie theaters, shows, concerts and more.

Sometimes the best restaurant in town might just happen to be in a casino, so make sure you focus on that selling point. (And don’t mention that there’s a great poker tournament running later that night as well...)

4. Couples Spa Package

You can never go wrong with a full day of pampering at a high-end spa. Vegas casinos and hotels are known to have some of the best spas in the world and their sheer size and luxury will definitely add to the experience.

From body scrubs to hot rock massages to cooling eye therapy you can guarantee she'll find something from the spa menu she'll like.

She might not be that happy about sharing it with you, but either way you'll likely win.

5. Life on the Wild Side

This takes the right kind of special someone, but for a nice change of pace you might offer them a proposition.

You’ll spend however much you’d typically spend on Valentine’s Day gifts and a date ... or they can choose instead to take that cash and head off to the casino with you to see how much they can turn it into

We're not going to say it isn't risky... but isn't that what romance is all about? Win or lose, you'll have a very memorable story to recount when you get home.

They’ll usually opt for the traditional date but sometimes it’s fun to be wild and crazy and throw caution to the wind, especially if you’re not normally the gambling type and don’t visit the casino very often.
