What would be the difference between Virgin and The SLS?

Well, for me the big difference (assuming that the "Virgin" includes a casino) is that one would offer the opportunity for adding a new chip to my collection, likely followed by not returning to the establishment for maybe a decade.

What's she complaining about? I'd have to be paid to motorboat her.

Doubtful, and besides, I think that it would clash with the "Virgin Hotel" branding (there's one in Chicago, and one opening soon in San Francisco near the convention center).

As for a gaming license, I wouldn't be surprised if it is reopened without a casino. It is off-strip, after all.


According to this interview, the hotel will not only still have a casino, but it will be keeping the existing rock & roll memorabilia.

So is Hard Rock like a franchise or something?

They're all over the place, but they each seem to do their own thing, unlike a lot of other casino properties.

According to several employees, the casino stays and all employees will be interviewed for their jobs. Biggest differences seem to be the pool party is going to end.

Big changes, none good.
10X points on Monday and 20X on Thursdays are gone.


Drinks at the bar go like this. Bartender looks to see at least $20 in machine for your first drink.
Now the computer takes over. After X amount of play, a drink ticket pops out of the cash out slot. Coupon is good for 48 hours. If you go ten minutes without playing, the meter resets to zero. Guy next to me was playing video poker for $10 a hand and seemed to get a ticket every few minutes. I was playing $2 $VBJ and got a coupon after about $200 in. I like to switch machines every few minutes, just to get my legs some circulation, so I'll have to adjust my style a bit.
Bartender told me they currently have some discrimination as far as giving drinks but they don't seem happy. Saw a loud argument between a guy and the barkeep. He insisted he and his friends should be grandfathered in under the old rules.

I don't drink, but I think that, I would be less inclined to tip at all for a drink under these new voucher rules. Why should a person? After all you earned it and the casino says they owe it to you. Let the casino pay the server a living wage or find some robot to deliver the drink. Do you tip the workers at the rewards center when they give you some salad bowl you earned?

The problem is that it's too ambigious and not transparent as to what's required at each casino bar. I was killing some time at the sportsbook bar at Paris and the bartender got me a drink right away, with me playing a single hand. Meanwhile at Caesars I put in a decent amount of coin in before I was offered a drink. Doesn't make any sense.
