A Brighton bloke was left fuming over some of the extortionate prices of a hotel minibar in Las Vegas.
Sam Razavi has been in Vegas since September 28, ahead of the World Series of Poker, but it wasn't a gambling loss that "stung him the most".
The 41-year-old, who also runs the Sunday Roast delivery runs on Uber Eats from the Hare and Hounds pub, was more bothered about the snack prices from the famous Ceasar's Palace hotel.
Sam told the Daily Star: "I am a professional poker player and have been out here for the World Series of Poker which is usually held every year from end May to middle of July.
"Due to Covid, the 2020 series was cancelled, and May was too early for the 2021 series so they scheduled this years’ series from end of September to the end of November.
"The hotel was reasonable, usually you can get good deals during the week but on the weekend the rates can be extortionate. While I poked fun at the prices, it is not unreasonable to expect these prices in a hotel in Vegas.
"I’ve been coming to Vegas for nearly 15 years now, and if you are new to Vegas it’s easy to get stung.
"In the venue where I am playing my poker tournaments, a bottle of water is free if you are sitting at the poker table, you simply tip the waiter $1.
"Step outside the tournament room and there is a counter where a bottle of water will set you back $7.

"Put a small bet in the sports book and get several free drinks tokens – or go to the bar and order a bottle of beer for $13."
In a Facebook rant, he listed the prices he found the most shocking as the price they would be in GBP – as he also told the hotel where to go.
He wrote: "Caesars Palace minibar, prices in GBP for ease: 500ml bottle of water £7.50, Pringles £6.80, Skittles £9.50

"If you don’t feel suitably screwed after that, indulge in the “Romance Kit” – two condoms, some KFC wet wipes and a pack of tiktaks for £20…so you can screw yourself.
