About Vegas Advantage
VegasAdvantage.com is operated by John and Kristina Mehaffey. We have lived in Las Vegas since 2010. John has written thousands of pages of content related to the city and its tourism industry. Most of the content is gambling related. However, some pertains to the hospitality portion of the industry.
John freelanced for years. His work is spread out over dozens of sites because of it. He often cannot go back and edit the content as it becomes dated. It also makes it difficult to keep track of where the work is. Launching this site changes that.
This amount of content should help the site generate enough traffic to become a full-time job. That means there will eventually be advertising. The ads will be obvious, or it will be disclosed as such. For now, the site is ad-free.
John is in his 40’s and happily married to my best friend, Kristina. They go to shows about once per week during normal times. They are typically comedy clubs, though they may venture off that genre from time-to-time. It depends on what special deals are out there.
John got his start in gaming as a prop player at online poker sites. One was the infamous Absolute Poker. He played online poker, often for a living, from 2001 to 2005. He played home games before that, supplementing that income with a restaurant job. Propping burned him out and it was time for me to do something other than play poker.
John created a site that worked as a directory for an online poker promotion known as rakeback in 2004. He sold that site in 2006 and moved the family from Atlanta to Rapid City, SD to work for a similar company. They moved to Las Vegas in 2010.
John’s favorite casino games
John’s favorite game is full-pay video poker. He finds 100% games and plays them as a hobby. His favorite table game is Ultimate Texas Hold’em. He would rather play it in video form. However, it’s been five years since there was one in Las Vegas. He may be best known for compiling blackjack data in Las Vegas. I rarely play it though.
John plays live poker a time or two a year. He does not play on the internet anymore because Nevada online poker is a trainwreck. That made me move on to ventures like this.
