bikini-bj-press-photos070309_1The weather is heating up in Las Vegas and that means more and more people want to hang out by the pool to soak up the sun. But what do you do if you’re torn between catching some rays and staying in the casino to try your luck at winning the big bucks? Have no fear – some Vegas casinos will bring the gambling to you – even if it’s out at the pool.

The Stratosphere Hotel & Casino recently announced the addition of bikini blackjack to its newly renovated pool area. Bikini blackjack is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. – 7 p.m. and will last throughout the summer. If blackjack isn’t enough excitement for you, other poolside activities include a water balloon toss and beer pong tournaments.

The Hard Rock Hotel offers swim-up blackjack at its pool, as well as the Palapa Hut, which features four blackjack tables. Not only can you play blackjack while sitting in the water, but the Hard Rock pipes in music underwater through an underwater sound system.

The Tropicana has been offering swim-up blackjack for its guests for years and you can play from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Two aquatic gaming tables seat seven players each.

The Palms offers an interesting view to those who want to gamble out at the pool area. In the space between the first two pools, a triangular glass bar and six blackjack tables are set beneath a tiny glass-bottomed third pool.

You can’t gamble in the pool at Mandalay Bay, but a three-story glass-fronted beachside casino features dealers dressed for a day in the sun and beach attire is strongly encouraged. This means you can gamble barefoot while trying your luck against a bikini-clad dealer.
