Las Vegas means "meadows", and used to be a stopover ground for travellers. A railway track was built in 1905, marking the birth of the city. Its historical tradition is marriage (and divorce), as the conditions for marriage are very straightforward in the state of Nevada. Millions of American citizens and tourists flock here for these very reasons, the only condition being that they have to stay in the city for a few days before the marriage becomes official.

Casinos gradually began to take up shop in new venues, ensuring the city's fruitful economic activity. In 1931, all types of gambling were authorised. In 1966, companies on the stock market were given the right to hold a licence and therefore open their casinos. As a result, some of the largest, most powerful hotel chains started to open up here.
