May has been a busy month for the corporate entity Caesars Entertainment. You can see all of the press releases here but I’ll try to share the interesting information in easily digestible bites. Let’s roll!
I usually go into the weekend with one or two pages of notes with the Las Vegas news. There are three pages of fun today. There’s a lot of information this week, so buckle up! I’ll try to keep everything short, sweet and easy to read.
Caesars begins charging for Vegas parking, Oakland Raiders receive approval to move to Las Vegas, Skill Based Gaming at Planet Hollywood + Only In Vegas.
The New York Post is reporting that hotel room rates during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2018 will continue the trend of “insane room rates.” I wrote about the Trump Hotel potentially adding a Vegas Trump casino…. + much more
The Cosmopolitan and Monte Carlo aren’t the only Las Vegas casino-resorts being renovated before our very eyes. For the past year, Wynn Las Vegas has somewhat quietly updated and upgraded their bars, restaurants, casino, retail outlets, nightclubs, and hotel rooms.
It was a good news/bad news week for the many people who prefer Caesars and Total Rewards casinos in Las Vegas. The casino operator reported earnings last week and had some interesting information to share. After reporting earnings I found, even more, information from Caesars Entertainment. That information wasn’t “interesting” but it you should hear it anyway. Let’s start with the good news.
Happy Vegas Super Bowl Sunday! If the new president really wants to make an impact on America, he’ll make Super Bowl Monday a holiday. Anyway, Las Vegas has been packed all weekend with football fans getting ready to watch and wager on The Big Game. The sports book this morning at Red Rock Casino was already buzzing.
Casino-resorts are what stir the drink for just about everything in Las Vegas. On the Vegas Strip and around town, these properties not only offer hotel rooms to sleep in but casinos for gambling, malls for shopping, bars for drinking, restaurants for eating and so forth. Everything else you can find in Las Vegas is just a bonus.
As expected last week was a busy news period for Las Vegas. Even if it wasn’t blatant, the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) was the catalyst for a lot of what we learned about casinos during the week. There are a lot of places I could start but I think MGM Resorts is a good place.
Earlier this week I saw an article on Eater that had a very detailed overview of renovations coming to Palace Station. The information was almost too detailed not to be true. However, the exclusive news wasn’t available anywhere else and I wanted to see if this was indeed true
