Adrenaline pumping above the casino at the Stratosphere in Vegas

Perhaps the most exciting casino hotel in Vegas, the Stratosphere (soon to be rebranded as the STRAT) is on Las Vegas Boulevard, and considered to be the Strip's northernmost casino hotel. But what especially sets it apart are what's here besides its 2,424 rooms and huge (8,000-square-foot) gaming floor: the action-packed attractions contained in its Stratosphere Tower - the city's tallest, as well as the USA's tallest observation tower and fifth tallest in general. There are two observatory…

  • Did anyone see today's NYT piece on the past, present and possible future of Atlantic City? Fascinating primer on the city's 20th/21st-century history, (did you know the current mayor's a former casino pit boss?). The news hook is ostensibly this:

    "Gov. Chris Christie...announced plans last month to revive this city’s flagging economy by having the state essentially take over municipal operations in the casino district."

    But the pieces still ends with a question mark:

    "...as gambling continues to expand in neighboring states — Pennsylvania and Delaware both recently added table games to their slot-machine parlors — Atlantic City casino operators and local and state officials have not reached a consensus on how to change the city’s appeal.

    'What’s fascinating to me is this town’s always been able to sell itself, to sell something beyond its true worth,' Nelson Johnson [author of Boardwalk Empire, on which an upcoming HBO series is based] said. 'I’ve seen it all my life, and maybe we’ll see it again.'"
  • I hope they do. Keep the news coming on this.

    Hawaii may add gambling to its natural beauty
    Mark Niesse, Associated Press

    HONOLULU (AP) -- Hawaii has always been known for its sun, sand and surf. It may soon add another attraction: slots.

    Hawaii is one of the last two states with no legalized gambling, but lawmakers facing billion-dollar budget deficits and hunting for ways increase revenue are thinking about allowing casinos in tourist-filled Waikiki or on Native Hawaiian lands.

    Proponents say casinos would draw much-needed new money and jobs into the long-troubled, tourism-dependent economy.

    Tourists from the mainland would skip Las Vegas to sun on pristine beaches and take a turn at the roulette tables. Coveted high-rollers from Asia could avoid the long trans-Pacific flight, shortening their trip to the slots while also checking out the hula dancing.
