fontainebleau In response to our Lake Las Vegas post, our good friend Cheryl pointed me to an article in the Las Vegas Sun about Fontainebleau, the casino/resort in waiting on the Las Vegas Strip.

As the article goes on to say, the 47 permits pulled by Icahn Nevada Gaming Acquisition doesn’t necessarily mean any actual building is going to take place. According to county officials, the permits, which list a variety of projects (casino, hotel and restaurant remodelings, miscellaneous commercial structure work and parking structure modifications), could simply be procedural.

Let’s hope for the best!

(And hope the negative comments on the Sun article page are wrong.)

Just curious. . .I was wondering if the folks who visit this website or subscribe to our podcast use online blackjack guides to become a better blackjack player.  Do they help when you’re playing live versus online?  How about for other games like craps, roulette, and hold ‘em?

I saw an interesting article in the Las Vegas Review Journal a couple days ago about Internet gambling.  The article said that a House of Representatives resolution was introduced in May that would “establish a framework to permit licensed online gambling operators to accept wagers from inside the United States.”

According to the article, Nevada has the “statutory structure” in place to investigate and license online gambling companies.

My questions —

  • How would this effect existing online casinos? 
  • Would congress actually allow this to happen?
  • Would this reduce visits to Las Vegas?

Whatcha think?

[8/26/09: Just learned that Time.com took down the video because of “some sensitivity with various issues”. There is a very interesting article on the Las Vegas Sun website about the fallout from the Time’s article — specifically, the Realtor quoted in the piece is in hot water.]
