Gambling Notes And Tidbits

January 10, 2014 at 7:29 PM | by | Comments (7)

Wish this stack was yours, huh? So do we.

From the desk of Mr. N. Pappagiorgio, gambling updates from The Strip to afar:

☛VegasChatter reader Mark. B. recently tipped us off to upcoming changes to table games at Harrah's. A floor manager there informed him that progressive table game bonuses are going bye-bye. He furthers reports being told all table games will be made like the "Million Dollar 3-Card Poker" already prevalent at Caesars properties.

What this means for gamblers is that sucker side bets will no longer land a relatively smaller progressive jackpot and instead will fund a larger landfall that has an even unlikelier (yep, it's like that) chance of winning. Mark also points out this change will double the smallest table bets to $10 per hand leaving Casino Royale with the only $5 tables on the Strip.

Sh*t You May Have Missed While Rockin' The Holidays

A lot of sh*t comes and goes in Las Vegas and some of it actually sticks. Since the flow of updates can come fast and furious, each month we'll point out Sh*t You May Have Missed as an easy way to keep score of what's new, who's coming soon, which doors may have closed and what you better catch now before it's gone forever.

If you spent the holidays shopping at Target, you probably missed a lot of sh*t! We even had to dump a quick sh*t list last month to keep up ourselves. In the event we still manage to miss some sh*t, leave a comment below!

Chew Over These Juicy Off-Strip Dining Tidbits & Rumors

January 3, 2014 at 11:08 AM | by | Comments (2)

Coming soon: same meat, more seafood?

Our one and only New Year's resolution this year is to eat out less and hit the gym more. So, expect to see more gym selfies instead of triple chocolate mascarpone truffle layer cheesecake pictures from us this year. Aw, we're just kidding. We don't make resolutions. Restaurant news and rumors are much juicer to us than that new weight machine over the in the corner. So, here's the latest we've heard!

Sh*t That’s Opening Before Year’s End

December 26, 2013 at 3:43 PM | by | Comment (1)

B*tch makes our sh*t list.

The holidays are, of course, a time to spend time with family and friends, to reflect on the past year's accomplishments before announcing those resolutions goals for the coming year and to knock back the last of that eggnog. Even the constantly running pace of Las Vegas generally slows down come December. By the time New Year's Eve rolls around, though, the city is always back firing on all cylinders and then some.

Since everyone loves a challenge, recent history has started targeting NYE as an opening date. It didn't ultimately happen last year, but in echoing cultural trends, those New Year openings are creeping up even earlier this year. So much so that we needed to make a sh*t list to keep track of sh*t before our monthly wrap of sh*t that's come and gone hits the fan presses.

Here's what jolly Las Vegas is bringing us before year's end:

Affinity Gaming Hacked, Credit Card Info Stolen

December 23, 2013 at 2:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

Target isn't the only one with holiday woes. Last week, Affinity Gaming had a breach of security which compromised the credit cards and privacy of about 300,000 customers. If the name doesn't sound familiar, it's because they're the owners of Silver Sevens. (They also have some other casinos across the country.) Since Silver Sevens is a smaller casino, not many people that visit Las Vegas had problems.

A few days before Affinity Gaming was hacked, it was announced that 40 million people had their credit and debit card information stolen when Target was hacked. This is obviously a much bigger deal than the thousands put at risk at Silver Sevens. If a company the size of Target can be hacked then so can larger casino companies in Las Vegas such as Caesars Entertainment or MGM Resorts. It's a little surprising that someone hasn't hacked a casino operator's system already.

Planet Hollywood Wants To Be The Axis (Yes, A Name Change But Not What You Think)

Where: 89109
December 19, 2013 at 8:41 PM | by | Comments (0)

From concept...

To many, it will be known as Britney's theater, for at least the next few years. But, for some (including us), it's hard not to think about it as the Aladdin's Theatre for the Performing Arts. This writer just referred to it that way only yesterday. It seems fitting then that, during a press event at Planet Hollywood today to announce the venue's new name and to show off its new look, executives began by noting the theater's storied history. One that's seen entertainers ranging from Neil Diamond to Justin Timberlake.
