Agreed. It's crazy but awesome.
I also agree that renting a car is a good idea. They're super cheap and every casino has free self-parking. Besides, Vegas is deceiving. Everything is not as close together as it seems.
If gambling, you may want to stick to BlackJack or Craps. Both games do have the best odds. I personally like gambling at Mandalay Bay. They have a better selection of more top shelf spirits that you have access to, even if you play the slots. Plus, there is a great restaurant there called the Burger Bar. Great burgers and shakes.
I never tire of the Bellagio Fountains.
The Beatles Love is the best show I've seen in Vegas. If you look around, you can probably find discount tickets.
Since your trip is longer, you may consider a sidetrip to Hoover Dam, with the newly built bridge they have there or the see through glass Grand Canyon spot. Neither are too far away.
You should visit Downtown Vegas. It's old school and you can feel the history there. Plus, they have a zip line there now.
