Much of the news in Las Vegas for this week comes from the Global Gaming Expo (G2E). The casino business doesn’t entirely stop but it comes close.
The big news in Las Vegas actually affects casino guests all around the country. Boyd Gaming updated their B Connected players club.
There’s so much talk about fees being out of control in Las Vegas but only one financial issue. There are plenty of price increases happening in Las Vegas beyond the fees.
This was a rather interesting week in Las Vegas. There wasn’t as much major news as last week but there is a lot to know.
I have some clarification to add to my Borgata Mlife post from last week.I played video poker again and the Mlife Express Comps, Slot Dollars and Tier Credits were updated in my account immediately. The Global Points were not, but the Mlife Desk had the correct session total in their records, when I inquired about it.
I played at the Borgata Atlantic City last week for the first time since my Mlife at Borgata post in February. In that update, I told you that the representative at the Borgata, that I was contacting after every single time I played, to have my numbers adjusted in line with the Mlife Earn Rates…
I have been writing about the Mlife program at the Borgata, since the transition from My Borgata Rewards in June. It was difficult to figure out the Mlife Earn Rates because the computer system is not tallying all the numbers correctly in everyone’s account and I could not confirm the earn rates that they gave me verbally, even though they were updating my account to these values.
Last year, Michael told me about an idea to have a conference that would discuss maximizing travel miles and points and casino rewards. Ya know, bringing TravelZork dot com to life. What a great concept. The idea went dark for awhile and popped up just a few months ago. ZorkFest 2017 was ready to go!
Wynn Resorts announced that they will be reporting earnings on Monday morning. Hard Rock May Finally Be Sold. While the deal isn’t confirmed there’s too much smoke not to see a fire. + more news and scoop
Looking back I think it’s safe to say that 2017 was an interesting year Las Vegas. There was plenty of news and I’m happy to say that we’ve never missed a week sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly of what’s happening in Las Vegas.
