Enjoying the holiday season in Las Vegas is different, and better, than any other city with casinos. Not only is there a great variety of holiday environments inside the casinos but there’s an entire city enjoying the festivities. Most people will stay in the resort corridor or downtown Las Vegas and that’s fine.
William Hill recently announced that they purchased the sportsbook assets of CG Technology. This deal is subject to certain closing conditions, including regulatory approval in Nevada and the Bahamas, where CG Technology consults the Atlantis on Paradise Island.
Technically, I live in a part of Las Vegas called Spring Valley. I’m one block away from Summerlin and pay less living here than I used to. It’s a nice enough area with plenty of places to visit. There’s even a man-made lake a couple of blocks away.
Before I get to the “big” Vegas News about the Resorts World plan, I must say this has been a chaotic two-week stretch with friends visiting. So many people I know visit Las Vegas for work and/or pleasure. Being able to catch up with friends and acquaintances so frequently is part of what makes living in Las Vegas so great.

It’s not every day that casinos in Las Vegas change hands. MGM Resorts International recently announced two deals. On the same day in October, MGM Resorts announced the sale of Bellagio and Circus Circus . One of the casinos will see a new operator while the other remains part of the MGM Resorts family.
Not everyone who visits Las Vegas enjoys their visit in the same way. My friend groups are a great example. I have some friends that always set aside time to relax in a spa for an afternoon. I have other friends that would never use their time in Las Vegas that way.
