Test your Vegas IQ: Door handles

The first thing you see when you walk into a casino isn’t the slot machines or the blackjack tables. It’s
the door handles. Many casinos have chosen to create custom door handles that leave a memorable impression on guests and help express the theme of the casino.

Here at the VEGAS.com headquarters, a door handle is merely a door handle, so my colleague Kristine McKenzie and I decided to venture down to the Las Vegas Strip to get our custom fixture fix. Below are the photos we took of door handles from six different Las Vegas casinos. Guess which door handle belongs to which casino – if you handle it (hardy har). The answers are listed at the bottom.








ANSWERS: 1. Mandalay Bay; 2. Hard Rock; 3. New York-New York; 4. Luxor; 5. Terrible’s; 6. Venetian.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
