If you were getting tired and bored about hearing information regarding to Los Santos and San Fierro, then you will be glad to read the following news. Finally, we get to see the very first look at details of Las Venturas. A magazine entitled “EGM” released the first tidbits about this city, along with some screenshots. However, we here at GTA-SanAndreas.com will not be posting any scans on the site, but I am sure you can find them on our forums. The information found in the article is as below.

As many know, the main attraction that Las Venturas will offer is the casinos. EGM touched up a lot on this subject. Rockstar, who is known for their humor, included a lot of puns to be noticed in Las Venturas. V-Rock Casino will be one of the many casinos found in Las Venturas. This will be an imitation of the “Hard Rock Café”. If you remember the station “V-Rock” in Vice City, you will remember that it was a heavy metal station. This will be the theme of the V-Rock Casino.

Another casino, Caligula’s Palace, will take after Caesar’s Palace. If you do not know what Caesar’s Palace is like, it has a Roman theme to it. This is probably what Caligula’s Palace will be like.

This next one should be quite obvious. In Las Vegas, there is a place called the Mirage, which has a heavy tropical theme to it. Well, in Las Venturas, there is a place called The Visage. It should have the same theme to it as well.

This next one is kind of funny and strange. Rockstar also has made a casino that relates to the famous Treasure Island. However, they will call it Pirates In Men’s Pants. This casino will have a pirate theme to it.

If you have ever heard of a place in Las Vegas called The Flamingo, then you will be glad to hear that there is a place similar to this in Las Venturas called The Pink Swan. The theme to The Pink Swan will most likely be an old school Vegas style.

It is said that Rockstar have put a lot of detail and time into the casinos. Not every casino will be accessible, but many of them will be. There is also many things to do once inside the casinos. Obviously you can gamble. Some of the games include blackjack, slots, video poker, roulette, wheel of fortune, and craps. If you make CJ a high roller, you will be sure to gain respect. Also, there will even be drunken Elvis impersonators straying around the casinos (oh great).

The famous neonlight cowboy sign that is in Las Vegas will also be in Las Venturas. However, Rockstar tweaked it a bit. The sign in Las Venturas will have Avery Carrington from Vice City on it instead.

There is quite a few ties between San Andreas and Vice City that will be in the game. One building will have a huge Candy Suxxx figure on it. Maybe she made it big time? Who knows.

The above information is according to the EGM Magazine.

Las Venturas vs. Las Vegas Casinos:

The V-Rock Casino = Hard Rock Cafe (VROCK was the metal station in VC.) The Hard Rock is music themed place, just like Hard rock Cafe.

Caligula's Palace = Caesar's Palace (Greek Forum themed)

The Visage= The Mirage, tropical themed.

Pirates In Men's Pants = Treasure Island. Pirate themed (duh).

The Pink Swan = The Flamingo. Old school Vegas style.

Wasn't "Pirates In Men's Pants" on a billboard in the subway in GTA:3? It was a play or something (Pirates In Men's Pants = Pirates Of Penzance).

Psy, Caligula is actually a reference to ancient egypt, not greece, so expect an egyptian themed casino. i accept none of thje responsibility for this knowledge, that came from google.

As for the pirates in mens pants, im not sure if thats the casino for me (heterosexual male)

it is the luxor in vegas that is based on egypt.

the word ceaser was roman for emporor or king.

just as a side note in order of world power. egypt first greece second rome third

the roman empire included egypt and greece in its borders.

there will be a test on monday.
