I was about to say that it looks like Vegas will be cooler this year, based on southern Cal weather lately, but

Las Vegas hits 100 degrees for the first time in 2024; over a month earlier than in 2023
Friday (May 17th) was the first 100-degree day in Las Vegas, the National Weather Service confirmed.

South Lake Tahoe split over proposal to tax property owners

South Lake Tahoe is the latest California city to consider a vacancy tax as a way to address a housing shortage. Oakland, San Francisco and Berkeley have approved similar initiatives; voters in Santa Cruz rejected one two years ago. Los Angeles considered a vacancy tax four years ago, but it went nowhere.


Argh, sez I.

There will be ways around it though if it passes.

Resorts World Vegas taking unlimited free parking away

Changes to a north Strip casino's loyalty program will take away unlimited free self parking for entry-level members. Resorts World also introduced a new tier between the entry level, Royal, and the next tier, Prime.

They've had the parking ticket machines and sawhorses in place since the beginning, but it just didn't seem like they had enough traffic to justify charging.

All guests may still park for free for up to three hours beginning June 3. Following the three hours, standard parking rates will apply at $18 per entry, while valet options are also available ranging from $25 to $75.

Las Vegas detectives investigate Gold Coast casino robbery.

Amazing that these sorts of things still happen.

And this was a different crime, last week - amazing that this guy thought he could get away with it, coming and going to the robbery with a taxi.
Last week, sources told 8 News Now Investigators that a man took a taxi to Resorts World on the Las Vegas Strip, robbed the casino, and then left in the cab with an undisclosed amount of money on Nov. 10. No information about the robbery has been publicly released.

Now here's the thing about RW. Its main cage is located pretty centrally. A robber would need to go through quite a bit of casino just to get to an exit point. But they have a second high limit cage, right by the Crockford's high limit Baccarat salon. To get to that is just a quick walk through the Crockford's lobby, the salon and bam you're at the cage. Don't even have to go through the main casino to get to it. I would guess that whoever pulled off this RW robbery had his taxi wait for him at the Crockford's porte-cochere, went in, robbed the high limit cage, and back out within minutes.

It's interesting because when the casino opened, the RW VIP Opening party was held partly in that high limit salon, and at that time, over a year ago, my wife commented on how close the high limit cage was to the main entrance, and how that might invite would be criminals. I always thought it was bad logistics myself, looking at it from either a casino owner or real estate developer's point of view.

Similarly the guy who pulled off the craps table robbery at the Bellagio, went in and out through the North Entrance - much less casino through which to walk in and out.

This guy I assume tried the same M.O. but was less fortunate. Man trying to rob Bellagio Casino for 2nd time killed in police shootout We were looking down at the crime scene from a Vegas suite that very night, wondering what all the flashing LVMPD car lights meant.

But the distance even from the North Bellagio valet entrance to the nearest craps table or casino cage is still longer than the quick jaunt from the Crockford's valet entrance to the RW high limit cage.

They actually did catch the RW $6000. cage robber. Pretty quickly as he was already known to the police.

Suspect passed Resorts World cashier note that said 'fill the bag or I will shoot you,' arrest report says
Police: Zubaid Ibrahim Al Jarmi was on probation for similar robbery


I discussed this with someone higher up at RW right after this happened, who was laughing about how the guy got only $6K.

Golf not doing so well in Vegas? Or just indoor golf.

This Las Vegas golf attraction opened in March. Now itís laid off workers

A recently opened Las Vegas entertainment attraction has announced layoffs just months after opening its doors.

Atomic Golf, a high-tech golfing range with 103 bays at The Strat, announced it has laid off a portion of its hundreds of staff. The layoffs have come quickly for the venue, which opened in late March.

Highest-ever Nevada April gaming win surprises industry analysts

April traditionally is a weak month for casinos, but they had the highest win ever for the month in 2024 despite an early Easter and the closure of the Tropicana.

JCK going on in Vegas now. One thing about Venetian which may be annoying is that when big conventions are going on there, which is - often - entire restaurants will be closed for private events. You have to walk around from restaurant to restaurant to find one open at all, even for take out. Suites for all but the highest rollers will sometimes be hard to pull down too during some conventions.

At Wynn, they seem to cater to players first, business non gamers second. It is rare that a Wynn restaurant is closed for a private events - many of them are held at Tableau in the evenings, which Tableau is open for breakfast and brunch only anyway.

It'd make it easier for me to hit the back wall. I probably run the dealer's patience by having only one dice hit the wall and the other dice sticks to the table near where it lands even though I threw them both 6 to 10+ feet. How long are the tables I play at? I don't know. 14 to 16 feet? I try to get to stick right to shoot and that's the closest to a baby craps table I can get.

From DiceSetter.com https://dicesetter.com/mb_archive/tablesizes.htm
After close measurement of tables I have determined that most tables are either 12 feet or 14 feet in length. This dimension is the length measured from outside chip rail to outside chip rail. The length from rubber to rubber is about 10 inches less. 11'2" or 13'2".
I have never seen a sixteen foot table but have heard that they do exist.
I have seen an eight foot stand up table that only had one dealer on base and a stickman if it was busy. Ten footers are available from Gamblers General Store.
Casinos think that the larger table services more customers but IMHO a full 14 footer only gets 80-90 rolls per hour and a 12 footer gets about 100-110.
Biloxi's Imperial Palace has 16 foot tables ... so long that you almost have to throw overhand to get them to the wall . I'll only shoot there if I can get the 1st stick right spot

Mad Professor
Roadrunner,
Wait until you have to shoot on a 24-foot land-barge length table.
As Billy would say, "You can't see the other end of it because of the curvature of the earth."
By the way, they have one of those two-dealer 8-foot tables at The Boardwalk Casino in LV. They use a short stick and mini- dice. You can read about it in my "Master of All...Well...Slave to Some" article. They used to have one at the Wild West Casino beside the Orleans Hotel in LV, but I don't know if they still have it.

Roadrunner
I have played on the 8 foot table at Wild Wild West (west side of I-15 on Tropicana) in July of 2000 and again in August of 2001. In between those time they put up a sign that says "No dice setting No dice Banging". Tried to quick set a couple of times and the stick dealer called me on it. (See "The Black List" here on Irishsetter)

Heavy
A quick word on those mini-dice. The smaller the dice the more difficult it is to set and control the roll. Especially the control part. Seems that the smaller dice react more when they hit the rubber pyramids - and are easier to knock off axis. I am not sure if this is really a size or weight issue - but it IS an issue. Stick with casinos that used the full size 3/4 inch dice and you'll have better control.

The casinos seem to think dice setting works. Never been accused of it at a regular class joint I am known at, but was accused of it once when I was winning a lot at Craps at the Four Queens in Vegas. I frankly had no idea what he was talking about at the time, but at a minimum the pit boss's crass "Stop setting the dice!" and jumping in my face disrupted

I've been verbally accused of dice setting before. Never at a top end casino though.

I win fair and square.

The pit boss accused me just because I was winning too much. Mostly he wanted to unsettle me I assume. After all, how could he have known that telekinesis is within my powers.

Shareholders of another Strip casino company reject smoke-free plan

Caesars Entertainment shareholders solidly rejected a proposal to study the economic effects of smoke-free casinos, the last of three recent efforts to pursue the policy through publicly traded companies.

(Perceived) dollars before health unfortunately. Shareholders must think banning smoking will bite into business.

Might still be hope though.

Smoke-free casino advocates are seeking out different routes to close Clean Indoor Air Act loopholes that exempt casinos and bars in Nevada and other states. The corporate proposals come months after a court challenge with similar goals was filed in New Jersey in April. Also that month, a poll of Nevada voters, commissioned by the Nevada Tobacco Control and Smoke-free Coalition, found 58 percent said they would support banning smoking in casinos.

Cosmopolitan's player rewards system transfer to MGM Rewards on July 30, 2024.

One thing I am interested in seeing, is whether the Cosmo system of declining to cover spa comps when on a winning trip (I have definitely run into that) will remain, versus the system at every other casino I play at, which is simply that you get what you have earned, whether via actual loss or theo loss.



As Cosmo's Identity rewards rolls into MGM rewards, they will double your Identity awards earned during the previous 12 month period, add (for me, who doesn't play slots), a tables games bonus, then add any direct MGM rewards tier credits, and then calculate your new MGM Rewards level. In the case of Noir, I don't think it is based just on points, but maybe some action from the host.

As with many other casinos, MGM has a tier match program.



https://www.mgmresorts.com/en/mgm-rewards/tier-status-match-challenge.html

However, it lasts for only 90 days - not a full year like some other casinos' tier match programs - and you have to meet some "challenge" during those 90 days to retain the elevated status.

Want to extend your Gold or Platinum Status Match?

Once youíve received your Status Match upgrade, youíre automatically enrolled in the Challenge. Complete the Challenge requirements to extend your Status Match through January 31, 2026.

Challenge requirements for Gold: Earn an additional 50,000 Tier Credits on certain eligible spend within 90 days of your Status Match.
Challenge requirements for Platinum: Earn an additional 150,000 Tier Credits on certain eligible spend within 90 days of your Status Match.

Also, you don't unlock all of the benefits of that matched tier, for example, not the tier celebration dining credit, air travel credit or complimentary cruise benefits.

No, you do not automatically receive these benefits by receiving a Status Match upgrade or successfully completing the Status Match Challenge. During the applicable Tier Status Earning Year, members must earn 75,000 Tier Credits to be eligible to receive the Gold Tier Celebration dining credit and 200,000 Tier Credits to be eligible to receive the Platinum Tier Celebration dining credit, air travel credit and complimentary cruise benefit.
