In Downtown Vegas, Your Ticket To Ride Comes With More Fine Print

July 9, 2014 at 7:24 PM | by | Comments (7)

Downtown Vegas may not be completely on the resort fee side (at least not yet), but that's not to say its casinos aren't exploring new ways to bring in more revenue.

Back in February, we told you how the free ride was over for some downtown lots and garages. El Cortez, Main Street Station and The California came under our microscope for adding strings to all those go-to spots. Fees were enacted that could be waived with play or by being a players club member, depending on the property. Last month, Binion's put the brakes on the usage of its garage by restricting validation to folks who either gamble or dine there.

Entertainment Roundup: More Summer Nights And A Lost Episode

July 8, 2014 at 6:51 PM | by | Comments (0)

A Vegas residency isn't over yet, a bit of Vegas past meets Vegas present and a Vegas parody aims to garner more laughs. Here's how Vegas is entertaining us now:

Olivia Newton-John wouldn't mind a little more love at Flamingo. Her Summer Nights residency, originally due to run through August, has been extended into January 2015. Tickets for new dates go on sale this Friday, July 11. (Although, Total Rewards members can purchase beginning tomorrow.) Pricing ranges from $70 to $350 if you add in a meet-and-greet.

At Golden Nugget, Vic & Anthony's Wants You To Take Another Look

Where: 129 Fremont Street [map], 89101
July 3, 2014 at 6:17 PM | by | Comments (13)

Downtown's changing dining scene has been a roller coaster of big names and unique concepts hanging their shingle in the revamped retro spaces that define the area. One thing we haven't seen is a bigwig of old Vegas try and reposition themselves to rope in new attention... (wait for it)... until now.

Vic & Anthony's at Golden Nugget has been doing the classic Vegas steakhouse thing for a while, but their Executive Chef Eric Stetcher is now serving up some rather interesting dishes.

Golden Nugget is changing their 24 Karat players club and bringing it into the 21st century. The players club isn't quite being overhauled as much as it's being infused with today's technology.

Now, members will be able to instantly download the points they've earned to their slot machine for use as free play. The new 24K Club offers $1 in free slot play for every 100 points earned. Free slot play will be available directly on your card within a few minutes of being accumulated.

Highlights From Golden Nugget's Release Of College Football Point Spreads

June 13, 2014 at 6:04 PM | by | Comments (4)

To quote the great Michael Bruce Buffer, ”It’s TIIIIIIIIIIME.”

Today marks the beginning of the college football season even though we’re still a few months from kickoff. This afternoon, Golden Nugget released point spreads for what they consider the 200 college football games of the year.

Bet limits are $1,000 and, since many professional gamblers sit at the Golden Nugget sportsbook waiting on the release of the point spreads, you can expect certain lines to change pretty quickly. The college football games of the year will still be available to bet at Golden Nugget even if some of the point spreads are different than the openers listed below.

We're Less Than 100 Days From College Football And One Week From Point Spreads

June 5, 2014 at 1:45 PM | by | Comments (0)

College football season is less than three months away! That means it’s time for football bettors to get ready for the season. Earlier this week, CG Technology (Cantor Gaming) released their season win totals for college football. (See SEC totals, here.) That’s just the appetizer, however, for early college football betting.

Friday, June 13 will mark the eighth consecutive year Golden Nugget will be the first sportsbook to post college football games with points spreads. They will release point spreads for 200 games. Football is, by far, the most bet on sport in casinos and college football gets a good amount of that money.

In Downtown Vegas, Sunday Strike Still Possible

May 30, 2014 at 3:25 PM | by | Comments (4)

Another tentative deal has been made between a downtown casino and the Culinary and Bartenders Unions.

This morning, it was announced that an agreement had been reached with The D; although, its sister casino, Golden Gate, is still among a shrinking number of downtown casinos with expired union contracts. Also in that group: Four Queens, Binion's, Plaza and Las Vegas Club... no one.

At Golden Nugget, One 'Coming Soon' Restaurant Open, One Expected By Month's End

Where: 129 Fremont Street [map], 89101
May 7, 2014 at 1:04 PM | by | Comments (4)

In January, two new restaurants seemed as if they were on the verge of making their debut at Golden Nugget. Then, months went by, without a public opening for either.

That changed Friday afternoon when Cadillac Cantina began plying its wares with the help of two glowing towers of tequila. In all, Cadillac offers some 70 different choices of tequila. There's also a handy take-out station for those who'd rather live más on the go. Cadillac Cantina is open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

In Vegas, Union Workers Prepare To Picket On Fremont Street

Union workers picketing The Cosmopolitan in 2013.

The local news in Las Vegas isn’t always that interesting outside of Las Vegas. As last week ended, the local news turned into news that would affect tourists and residents alike. The local Culinary and Bartenders Union approved a strike against 10 Downtown Vegas casinos

Binion's, El Cortez, Four Queens, Fremont, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, Las Vegas Club, Main Street Station, Plaza and The D all have expired contracts with the union. Shortly after the strike was approved, the union started getting their troops in order to picket outside the hotels beginning April 12.

It aimed low and still missed the mark for us, but the Riviera apparently thinks there's a profit margin to explore.

After officially opening at the Golden Nugget on January 21, Pawn Shop Live! -- the Pawn Stars parody -- is already moving. Beginning April 21, the show will call the Riviera home with performers taking to the stage daily at 4:30 p.m. inside the Starlite Theatre (where illusionist Jan Rouven performs at night).
