Tired of spending your last few bucks on Mega Millions tickets?

Good news! Now you can get to Vegas on your last dollar (almost). Everybody wins according to Spirit Airlines announcement today of $1 one-way fares from LAX to Las Vegas.

The low-cost airline will fly five daily round trips between LAX and LAS starting May 5. Book today and fly for $1 each way between May 10 and June 15 (go on, there are still plenty available at $1 and more at $19). With taxes and fees the $2 round trip fare comes to about $39.

In more good news, the other major carriers on the LAX-LAS route: American, Delta, United, US Airways, Virgin America and Southwest have let out a collective "whaaaat?!?" in reaction to the news. Southwest responded by slashing one-way fares to $29 between Los Angeles and Vegas and American and United Airways have followed suit. Fare war!
