Why it's a deal: According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fare between Los Angles and Las Vegas is $155 for travel in early April (Delta). A four-night stay at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas in early April costs about $416 per person, including taxes. So booking independently, you would expect to pay about $571. This package costs $346 with all taxes included—a savings of $225.

More: There are additional three- and four-night packages available at the Riviera Hotel & Casino, Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
