When I was thinking of a fun way to summarize the Vegas News this week a lyric from the band Thursday came to mind. “It starts and stops and starts and stops again” is basically how the casino industry has been operating for the past few weeks…actually years. Have a look.
Readers of this column know TheInveterateGambler has been bouncing around the casinos of Atlantic City for decades. It was with this in mind that recent news of another “ownership” change to the Revel/Ocean Resort Property spurred a fantasy of what he would do to “tweak” the Ocean Resort Casino Atlantic City.
Boyd Gaming has been doing great business in Las Vegas over the past couple of years. The locals casinos and downtown casinos have been attracting locals and tourists alike. Their earnings call and report for the second quarter was further proof of that.

I received a pre-approved offer for the Mlife Rewards MasterCard and pulled the trigger after ZorkFest.

One of my favorite conversations is sweet spots in loyalty programs. Be it casino, hotel or airline programs it is always fun to imagine how one can reach top tier elite status with the least amount of spend. I was actually discussing CHEAP Hyatt Elite Status with my buddy John the other day, as it references to Hyatt Globalist status. Globalist (formerly Hyatt Diamond) is now the top published tier for Hyatt loyalty.
It’s a very special holiday edition of Vegas News! Since I’m writing this during one of the holidays, there will be a little less opinion and observation than usual.
Our desire is to profile a selection of the cheapest Hyatt Mexico Hotels.

We provide links to the official Hyatt pages for booking, as well as for booking with Hotels.com Mexico that provides a very simple awards program ( Hotels.com rewards – Collect 10 nights, get 1 free* ) for those that don’t care to focus on a specific hotel loyalty program.
