Is tripod needed or allowed there?

Tripod is nice if you willing to carry one.
But with a city non-sleep, you should do very well without one.


Canon 5D3 + Zoom (EF 17-40L, 24-105L & 28-300L, 100-400L II) & Prime (24L II, 85L II, 100L, 135L & 200 f/2.8L II; Zeiss 1,4/35)
Sony α7r + Zeiss 1,8/55 FE
Nikon Coolpix A; Nikon F3 & F100 + Zeiss 1,4/50

Lots of photogs on the street carrying them. It just slows me down and I had my family in tow so I just ended hand holding all the night shots which means you need some good low light lenses for night photography.

I personally wouldn't set up a tripod inside a casino. You can sneak taking pictures indoors in the casinos but if you set up and look like your taking all these professional pictures from inside they will likely say no cameras.

Yeah, tripods in public spaces inside the casinos is both a commercial photography and injury liability red flag!

You shouldn't encounter any issues shooting hand held in lobbies, atriums, etc. but do NOT try to shoot on the gaming floors. That will get you an invitation to the door...

If you are going to head to Vegas then I HIGHLY recomend you head over to the Valley of Fire. It is only about a half hour or so away from Vegas and it is definitely worth the drive. They filmed a bunch of movies and TV shows there like the mars scenes from Total Recall. I didnt give myself nearly enough time when I was there. Here is a link to some shots I took.

The Valley of Fire is well worth a visit. Here is a very wide panorama taken there from six frames with the 17-40L again.
