#1. Do you think the casinos
should have a dress code? WHY or WHY NOT?
* No... I do not
feel casinos should have a dress code beyond that of common decency. The
entire atmosphere of the casino's is bold and free so why not also in
* Yes, there
should be some kind of dress code depending as to the caliber of the
casino. It can be neat and clean, yet still be informal and
comfortable. Emeterio Moya
* I do not think
that casinos should have a dress code other than just common decency. If
they add dress codes then the ones of us who fly in will need more and
heavier weight clothes. There is also the fact that it is over one hundred
degrees outside in the summer making dress clothes oppressive. These are
private ventures so if they do decide on a dress code that is their
decision but it would probably keep me out of casinos with dress codes
unless they are really liberal like allowing sneakers and tee shirts.

dress code is desirable, however the majority of people this day and age
feel the "casual" appearance/dress in good taste prevails. The
gambler(s) of today along with those who don't gamble comprise 100% of the
money poured into the coffers in Las Vegas. What percentage of these 2
categories are engaged in formal vs informal attire. The casual/informal
dressed person is the stereotype today in all facets of life.

* I believe there
should be some form of dress code for the simple reason not everyone has a
great body and there are a lot of people out there that should not be
walking around with soooooo little clothes on . Deborah Keeler
* Casinos should
not have a dress code for the casino floor because the more comfortable a
person is, the longer they are going to sit and play. Judy L.
* The casino's would
never impose a dress code. They could possibly loose a few bucks by
driving away those who don't have a clue about dress, manners or social
behavior. I do agree that the showrooms and other areas should uphold some
degree of dress code. I've seen people at shows who looked like they were
just dragged in from a homeless shelter. Karen V Bujnoski
* No! Clean and
decent yes,. But dress codes only separate the snobs from those who want
to enjoy themselves. If you want to dress up that's fine but tuxedoes to
tanktops should be welcome. It is how you conduct yourself not how you
dress that is important. Harold from Maryland.
* No- I think when
you go to Vegas you should be comfortable and not have to dress up
especially when it is hot. I don't mean look your worst but be
comfortable. Nancy Sexton
* I have been to
Vegas for the past thirty years and I really wish the old days of dress
code were back. Yes, it is hot in the summer and I do not think
people should wear coats and ties, but who says you should wear the worst
clothes either. When you go into a casino today you see people in
the worst clothes. Granted comfort is important, but do any of these
people have mirrors at home? Somebody's mother needs to help them.
* No, I like being
relaxed. However I do respect that many fine restaurants and various
clubs should continue a better dress code than they have. With
regards to the casino area I think it should be left up to the individual,
as long as they are clean! Barbara
* Yes, I think
that a dress code would
really improve the casinos. In the days gone by it was a pleasure to
get dressed up and mingle around the important people. Now a days
you see people in the worst clothes, not their best, in casinos.
Bring back the old days.
