Obvious news, Raiders coming to Vegas.

 

Cantor books being auctioned off to highest bidder.  We should know who the new guy is pretty soon.

 

The Cromwell, which was a dumbass name from a dumbass company, is getting a name change.  "Caesars Republic" is the floating name.

 

Hard Rock in Vegas is getitng sold to Hard Rock Seminole Tribe any day now.  Imminent.  

 

Nobu Hotel will be getting a name change as well.  They may be "Caesars Republic" or more likely another dumbass name from a dumbass company.

Fuck the Cromwell.  

 

Damn I miss the Barbary Coast.  I miss the quaint sportsbook.  The small hotel where you were just steps from your room from the Strip.  I miss the Victorian room and the Chinese specials they had on the menu.

 

Fuck the Cromwell.

Cromwell always seems to have some kind of iodine like smell when I'm in there, place sucks.

CG supposedly received a $75M offer from Paddy Power a couple of years ago, but were holding out for $150M.

They have since reduced expectations to $50M. Let's see if they are able to sell

Caesars started rolling out their charge for parking program at their casinos.

 

MGM announced they would be raising their parking fees.  One example was valet would be raised from $18 to $24.

 

Britney Spears' show is taking a hiatus.  They will likely revamp it to coincide with a 20-year anniversary of Baby One More TIme.

Lots of turnover at the Palms with Station taking over.  Mass interviews and auditions are taking place.

Cromwell good for parking, although it's being flooded with Bellagio parking fee refugees now. Also has a 9/6 VP bank good for running freeplay through.

One of the problem with selling CGT is they have a number of bad deals in place at

their hosting casinos. They will probably have to make serious concessions to get 

someone to take over those positions. Long term deals at bad rates to occupy 

spaces like Venetian/Palazzo. I have heard they pay $300,000 a month to operate

there which sounds absurd but no one at CGT has denied it. 

 

A Euro outfit would be fine as long as it's not William Hill. Then we just sink deeper into

the consolidation spiral and that's good for no one except William Hill. I'm rooting for

Paddy Power.

They can only ban you from an app, just like William Hill. Stopping you from betting

over the counter when there are multiple locations to bet at is a whole different story.

 

A lot of guys claim to be banned from William Hill. The reality of it is that they could bet

over the counter if they wanted to. They just want to bet on the app and can't.

The Raiders move may move up the timelline of the 51s (AAA Mets team) moving to Summerlin.  

 

Cashman will probably be redevolped as a soccer stadium at some point.

 

The hockey practice facility is moving along nicely in Downtown Summerlin, construction is busy.  

 

Several restaurants have changed hands there as well.  No real tragedies as the closures simply weren't that good.

There are a couple of ifs there....

 

If you bet under the key limit ($1k or $0 for parlay cards), you might be able to get away with it for a while.  But you also run the risk of getting trespassed.

 

If they banned you and have your picture (which they have from your license if you have the app), they could still check the cameras.

People who claim they can't bet at William Hill just have no imagination at all.

Zero. Either that or they have decided that leaving the house is too much of a hassle.

 

The same pretty much goes for Station and Caesars. Ever been to Rancho Wild Wild West

or Fiesta Henderson or El Cortez? There are just too many outlets for them to monitor.

 

Consolidation sucks but it also makes it nearly impossible to keep anyone specific out.

 

William Hill is on a whole different level. If you can't bet at William Hill you aren't trying.

Many beg out by posturing big-time and stating that they won't take their bet size.

Again - no imagination and/or lazy. The guys that complain just want to bet on the app.
