The time is approaching for visits to Grandma, fireside mugs of cocoa -- and the big savings gamblers can find in the new edition of the American Casino Guide.

The 2011 edition is due out in a few weeks, but author Steve Bourie offered WalletPop a peek at the deals to be had. The $12.78 betting-place bible is packed with 194 exclusive-to-the-book coupons totaling at least $1,000 in value, plus advice on how to play the games and not get your chips Hoovered by the house.

And don't forget the two-for-one admission to a Stripper 101 pole dancing class at Planet Hollywood on the Vegas Strip.
