Vegas Gossip

Yesterday was the first 100-degree day of the year, with the temperature topping out at an even 100. It’s a bit early, as the average first day to hit triple digits is May 24, but last year’s first 100 degrees was May 5, with 85 more to follow.

The transition from Monte Carlo to Park MGM is official. Press releases were sent out today announcing the change in identity for the 22-year old 3,000-room resort, including new signage on the building. Work is ongoing, however, on the $550 million upgrade and rebranding that includes a 292-room hotel-within-a-hotel. NoMad Hotel Las Vegas and two more high-end restaurants are scheduled to open later this year.

A new system that monitors machine-play on the casino floor to determine drink comps is being tested in Laughlin. Similar systems are already in place at some casino bars, but this would expand the monitoring to all machines. No firm plans to bring the new system to Las Vegas have been announced, but it seems only a matter of time.

Megabucks was hit last weekend at Paris for $11.2 million by a gambler who did not want to be identified. The last Megabucks jackpot was hit in September at Fiesta Henderson.
