Bicycle – Official Rules of Card Games – over 250 Card Games – 90th edition 2001
The 90th edition of the Official Rules of Card Games by The United States Playing Card Company makes a clear difference between Klondike and Las Vegas Solitaire.

While it is one of the most difficult solitaire games to win, it is likely that Klondike will remain one of the most frequently played versions of the game for generations to come.”
Las Vegas Solitaire
“The play is the same as in Klondike but with the following rule change: Instead of turning the cards one at a time, but goes through the stock only once.
In some casinos, Las Vegas Solitaire is a gambling game. A player pays to play, at once the game ends, the house plays the player for each card on the foundations”
