Bally’s is quickly becoming Las Vegas’ home for magic. They recently renamed the Windows Theater as The Magic Attic. If you haven’t been to Bally’s in a while, this is the venue where Wayne Newton performed on the mezzanine level of the property. His show is now at Caesars Palace.  

Oyo Las Vegas is now open for business. The new hotel brand replaces the Hooters Hotel and Casino. For years, this property has been a relative bargain for its location next to the Tropicana and across the street from MGM Grand.  

Choosing Vegas hotels on a budget

Tuesday, 22 October 2019 by

One of the great things about Las Vegas is the variety. There’s a place for anyone no matter their vacation budget.

New Slot Machines For 2020

Tuesday, 22 October 2019 by

The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) just ended and my feet are killing me! I walked the expo floor more than usual and I can still feel it. The gaming conference and expo bring the casino and gaming industry together. Panels discuss casino operations while the expo hall is where casinos go shopping.  

We’ve discussed how Las Vegas residencies have changed over time so we won’t get into it again. The new short term residencies seem to be as popular, if not more popular, than their long-term predecessors.

Wednesday, 25 September 2019 by

Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, Happy Place opens at Mandalay Bay. This self-described “interactive, immersive pop-up experience” has been called “the most Instagrammable pop-up in America” by Urban Daddy. It’s entirely possible this is a fitting tagline for Happy Place.

The Las Vegas Festival Grounds has been an underutilized plot of land for MGM Resorts (That could change next year if the rumors are true).
