Today I took the time to check out Casinos-R-Us (www.Casinos-RUs.com), a website that is devoted to helping people make travel arrangements to casinos around the US and is a guide to gambling in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, along with other casinos and even Internet gambling.
Right when you enter the website you are greeted by this page:
This page has a welcome to the site. The first thing I noticed was just how basic the page was. A very simple website that is not trying to be overly flashy. No gawky glitter logos or annoying ads that flicker. After checking out a half dozen websites that have to do with casinos in the past week, it is refreshing to see a site that is not trying too hard.
The site gives us some basic information here, they have ties to some really impressive hotels on the Las Vegas strip, including Paris, Bally’s, Caesar’s Palace, Flamingo, Harrah’s and The Rio. The Casino Tours that the site offers happen three times a year (in the spring and fall) and leave from three key locations; Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC. If you’d like to plan a trip from another city, the site lets you customize a trip from anywhere to one of the listed hotels. Because they book rooms in bulk, they get better prices than you or I would get by walking into one of the casinos.
When you click on the links for more information on the tours leaving from Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC, you are taken to this page:
This page is even more basic than the first page. A bit too basic and it doesn’t fit the style of the other page. It tells customers to call for a reservation, but doesn’t list a contact phone number on this page. It does have an email on the bottom for contacting though. Just curious, I checked out the contact page off the homepage, but it doesn’t have a phone number either, just a contact form.
Overall, the site has a lot of basic information about what Casinos-R-Us offers, but it is lacking depth and the site design is too basic for its own good. If you are looking for a Las Vegas casino tour that leaves from Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC, than you might want to contact them for more information and rates.
