This Week’s MtM Vegas Video

Hard Rock International officially took control of Mirage Las Vegas this week. With the transition comes a new player’s club, but that also means a potentially lucrative status match opportunity. There were some woes with the transition though. We’ll discuss them.

In other news we update you on yet another suggestion to improve the Vegas Strip and explain why so many of you are upset with our ideas. Plus four Vegas casinos have been robbed in the past 6 weeks. Is this an epidemic? We also discuss Caesars’ holiday gift to employees and the new buffet replacement that just opened at Aria.

  1. Hard Rock – the free $100 – It’s $100 for food & beverage.
    If you want to use it for free play one must go to the rewards center, and they will convert it but you will only wind up with about $57 of free play.
    Better to use on food & beverage IMO.
    Status remains good until 2024, so it’s worth making the trip.
