What is everybody's favorite time to gamble in Vegas? I like 7-8 am. Wake up and the casino isn't very crowded. Lower limits. Order a coffee from the cocktail waitress and try to hit a few points.

Depends on what casino I'm at. If I'm on the strip in something higher end, I want to gamble earlier in the day so I can choose my own limit threshold. If I'm off strip, I like it later in the day when it's busier.

If I can find a $10 craps table on the strip in a nice place, late in the evening, then that's optimal. I generally play 2-3 points with max odds, so playing $15 pushes my limits a bit too high when I have over $250 on the table at a time.

The majority of my poker is played weekday afternoons, while my wife is at the pool or spa. We play Pai Gow Poker together mostly at night. Video poker can be played any time.
