Nope if it's one ticket and non stop to EWR baggage will be checked all the way through to LAS

Yes you will check your luggage in at Dublin and not see it again until Vegas.

You will then check your cash in at the casino and not see it again :-) Have a great time.

Whenever I fly to the US I have to collect my luggage at the point of entry and clear customs with it, it's very easy you pick it up after immigration and after customs drop it off at a counter right after customs, in case you connect on your way back you will not see your luggage until you reach Dublin.

In Europe you clear customs at your destination, the US handles it differently unless they changed it short time ago.

It is the only country in Europe that has it-sadly!!!

Because Dublin has pre-clearance, the OP will go through all immigration and customs facilities in Dublin and land in the US as if they were a domestic passenger. That means the bag will be checked through to the final destination.

Only a few airports have pre-clearance. Some airports in Canada. Some airports in the Caribbean. I think I read they just started it in Dubai.

Think it is a combination of cost and the sequester but from a logistical point of view can you imagine Heathrow having the system? so many different airlines flying directly to the US from so many different terminals it would be a nightmare, with Dublin and Shannon it's all neat and tidy happening all in one terminal plus they don't have the same volume

Ps I for one would gladly pay a small amount extra on my ticket without complaint if it was feasible
