The new rooms at Flamingo are a massive upgrade from the entry-level FAB rooms. They might even be a bit nicer than the GO rooms. The latter has been one of my favorite affordable room options from Caesars Entertainment.
Eataly’s sixth U.S. location opened at Park MGM just as 2018 came to an end. The 40,000-square-foot culinary destination is located directly on the Las Vegas Strip and will serve as Park MGM’s main entrance. Eataly is a vibrant space full of unique food counters, bars, cafés and dining experiences offering traditional, authentic Italian food.
The college football season just ended and it’s time to move on. While multiple sportsbook operators just posted futures for the 2019 college football season, Caesars Entertainment has already moved on to baseball. Caesars is the first sportsbook operator in the US to open betting on 2019 Major League Baseball (MLB) season win totals.

The repeal of the Professional Amateur Sports Protection Act ( PASPA) in 2018 opened the doors for states to legalize sports betting. It also opened the doors for mainstream sports media to embrace sports betting more than ever. Websites and podcasts were the first to act since those are the forms of media that are quickest to respond.

However, it seemed as though more restaurants offered special menus than ever before. The pairings often feature adult beverages that complement the best dishes in a restaurant.
Toward the end of 2018, SuperBook USA, the national brand for the Las Vegas SuperBook at the Westgate, asked bettors what they look for when choosing a sportsbook. As the look and feel of sportsbooks change across the country, this is probably a good time to ask what was once a simple question.
