Gambling on the Pocket Casino

I found one of the more interesting wireless devices not on the show floor, but on the casino floor at the Venetian. Called the Pocket Casino, it’s a handheld device a bit bigger than a smartphone that can be used for real gambling–poker, blackjack, slots, even football. The only catch is that while it can be taken anywhere, you can wager and play only while on the casino floor at either the Palazzo or Venetian. I decided to plunk down $40 and give it a try.
