Not Sure Where To Poker? There Are Apps For That

December 15, 2011 at 12:18 PM | by | ()

A couple of poker apps have caught our attention recently that we'd like to bring to your attention. Whether a card shark or casino poker virgin both apps could be a handy pocket companion when the desire to sit down at the felt hits.

The AllVegasPoker app deals the cards face up on all the Vegas poker rooms. Click through room reviews and photos to decide where to buy-in, with instant call buttons if you need to dial for more info. Looking to play a tournament? Tourney listings answer all the q's you may have from average number of players, average duration (will I be done by dinner?) to starting chips and more. A separate tab even lists special tournament series such as Venetian's Deep Stacks.

The Hard Rock knows just how to whet our Appetite.

Back in April we had just downloaded a fresh new QR reader but missed out on our shot at scoring with a cute QR code. We still haven't snagged one off a moving vehicle but now that easier targets have been popping up all over Vegas we can say we've bagged a few QRs. Our most recent chance to get knee deep in QR came at the Hard Rock and is the reason we didn't Pago 'till latero.

If you're still scratching your head asking wtf a QR code is, read this primer. We'll wait. Ready? Let's find out how to use that brand spanking new QR reader you just downloaded.

Hungry And Thirsty At The Hard Rock? There's An App For That

Have you been on a heater at the tables or lighting up the bonus reels when hunger pains hit? Or the throat goes dry waiting for the cocktail waitress to circle back 'round to quench that thirst. But yet this table's hot, you can't leave - that's just throwing money away! Maybe the desert sun is beating down on you poolside, you need a burger (veggie that teeny weeny bikini reminds you) but your cash is drying out in the room. Now there's an app for that, at least at the Hard Rock.

On a recent trip to the 'Rock we spotted signs for Pago, an app that allows you to order and pay for goods and services throughout the casino. We assumed it was lame took note to dive into it later and now that we did, it might be worth checking out. Especially if you spend a lot of time at HRH, the only Vegas spot to offer the service so far.

Total Vegas iPhone App Now Available From Caesars

October 11, 2011 at 1:11 PM | by | ()

Back in August, Caesars Entertainment introduced us to their Total Vegas concept by way of an all encompassing website of everything Caesars in Las Vegas. It's a fairly nifty website if you are a loyal Caesars customer and don't like to stray too far. Caesars took that Total Vegas concept and decided to stick it in your pocket with the Total Vegas app for your iPhone. We're told an Android version will be available in two weeks. Those with Total Rewards comps can use the website and app in planning a partially "free" vacation.

The Total Vegas app is one of the better Las Vegas apps we've found, it's unfortunate that it's only for Caesars properties because we'd like something like this for all of Vegas. Like the website we can get information on any restaurants, shows, activities and rooms located on a Caesars property. We can also access our Total Rewards account and book rooms on the app, which we love. Another cool thing is that you can access Caesars awesome Pulse of Vegas blog via the app. On a side note, if you're looking for an app that covers all of Vegas, you can check out Vegas Mate which is an independently created app that covers the entire city.

We're nitpicky and we would like to have a few more words describing the restaurants, shows, activities and rooms but the app is free so we can't expect everything to be perfect. Our app also runs a bit clunky and slow. We'd prefer it to just zip along and not stutter when we click on a command. We have friends who are not having the same problem as we are so we'll chalk it up to our phone having too many apps (if there is such a thing).
