Well, Vegas is a land of challenge and mystery but moving here at 18 is not a good idea. To get the good jobs (with experience) in gaming or where alcohol is served, you have to be 21. Nevada does not have income tax but there are high property tax, sales tax, high car insurance rates, etc. Nothing is fre! The jobs depend on many things but you don't just get a job that is more than minimum wage. Even with a college degree people have to start at the bottom in one of the non-gaming industry jobs. Did you know that a person has to pay for and graduate from a dealers' school, then audition for several days (free no pay) at a casino, and not at a Strip casino but one of the outlaying ones. A dealer gets about $45 for an eight-hour shift and all tips are shared! If you want to move here, then bring at least $5,000 or more just to get started until you find any job. And you will have to have a green card, not a visitor visa. Cars are vital so you will have to purchase one (more money) as the bus system is limited. Apartments charge the first month, last month, security; plus deposits for utilities. At 18 the jobs you might find would be at fast food (minimum wage), housekeeping in hotel, working at a mall as sales person, janitor, etc. Nothing with serious money! So when you are 21, when you can see the real city from gaming to the city away from the tourist areas, come for a visit. But a visit is definitely not the same as living here. And leaving another country is way different.
