Science Says Yes to Taking That Selfie

“Selfie” is defined by Merriam-Webster as an image of oneself taken by oneself using a digital camera especially for posting on social networks. In fact, back in 2013 “selfie” found itself Oxford dictionary’s word of the year, and coincidentally a permanent place in pop culture history and on the tip of almost everyone’s tongue.

Selfie

Last year, a study from University of California, Irvine, stated that taking more smiling selfies increases your chances of happiness. Using a small test group, students documented their mood at the time that they took their selfie while they were smiling; a shot of something that made them happy and a photo of something that they thought would make someone else happy, and then send to that individual. Coincidentally, our own studies show that winning also produces similar results, and greatly increases your chance of happiness as well as that of those around you.

Stars And Selfies

So bust out your selfies sticks, grab a buddy, or go solo and shine with our Stars & Selfies frame and snap away, because if the selfie doesn’t improve your mood, the possibility of walking away a winner definitely should! So please share, tag us, or use #silvertoncasino in all your smiling selfies as you earn entries and a chance to win up to $25,000 cash.

New Years Resolutions

Reasons to Skip the Strip this New Year’s Eve

A new year is just merely a week away, ready to kick 2016 to the curb and provide 2017 with the warm welcome it deserves! If you’re looking to ring in 2017 right, there is no better way than to Skip the Strip! Las Vegas is undoubtedly a destination for New Year’s festivities, but here are a few reasons your best bet isn’t on the 4 mile stretch of the Strip.

Parking
Parking has undeniably become a nightmare for those who aren’t used to paying to park, even locals have reached the limit on their grace period, and everyone will have to fork out for putting it in park anywhere near most properties. Silverton Casino always has free parking and valet available, as well as a Lyft Lounge for those waiting for their ride.

Traffic
As mentioned, Las Vegas is a top destination for New Year’s Eve, and with that comes closures and with closures comes ridiculous amounts of traffic around the Strip. Avoid the mess and potential road rage, which is no way to usher in 2017. Also, we have you taken care of with Lyft credits by using code SILVERTON to get home safely no matter what the traffic may be.

Hefty Prices
It’s no surprise that the Strip comes with a hefty price tag. Bottomless drinks for only $25 when you buy your Skip the Strip tickets in advance, plus $5 off a New Year’s Eve specialty buffet dinner at Seasons with your Skip the Strip ticket. There is no shame in ringing in the New Year without breaking the bank!

Not to mention you wouldn’t want to miss the DJ dance party that kicks off at 10 p.m. inside Veil Pavilion, leading up to a countdown to 2017 with a champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight! Are you going to Skip the Strip with us this year?
