Johnny Football Now A Total Rewards Member

Ahhhh…Jonny Football. He loves Vegas and Vegas loves him.

On previous visits to Vegas, Jonny Manziel has been spotted playing low limits blackjack and in a men’s room with a rolled up dollar bill at the Hard Rock. It seems as though Johnny Football has moved on from the Hard Rock.

Last weekend Manziel was spotted at a new casino. Multiple reports say that Johnny Football was drinking and playing blackjack at Planet Hollywood.

There’s no photographic evidence showing that Manziel was at Planet Hollywood but a tweet says he was playing blackjack and using his Total Rewards players club card.

It doesn’t seem as though most athletes need or use a players club card but Johnny Football isn’t most athletes. If he continued his low rolling ways than Johnny Manziel is probably a lower level Total Rewards member and has to pay resort fees on his comp’d room. 

Furthermore, his $10-$15 hands of blackjack may not even be rated by Total Rewards. Blackjack players might be most interested to know that Johnny Football is most likely still playing 6:5 blackjack.

Alas, there’s no photographic proof that Johnny Football was actually in Vegas this weekend. Did he attend Britney Spears‘ first show of the new year? I guess we’ll never really know if he was in Vegas flashing his Total Rewards Gold Card around.

Please, Johnny Football, never change.

Sam Nazarian & sbe Sell Their 10% Of SLS Las Vegas

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Sam Nazarian (sbe) decided to sell their 10% Of SLS Las Vegas. SLS Las Vegas has gotten off to such a bad start since opening in 2014 that they’ve made drastic changes like closing the nightclub, removing brand names from stores and restaurants, refreshing their players club to a more locals friendly model and more.

SLS Las Vegas isn’t the cool, hip casino originally planned and this basically seals the nail in that coffin.

Stockbridge Capital will operate the casino-hotel for the time being. Earlier this year I speculated that SLS Las Vegas was on the road to becoming Cosmopolitan Jr. but I don’t think that will be the case moving forward. The executive staff at SLS Las Vegas is doing everything they can to change the image of the property. By the time Stockbridge sells SLS there won’t be any cross marketing opportunities for Cosmo and SLS to make any sense.

I really like the hotel rooms at SLS Las Vegas and the Umami Burger/William Hill sports book but I’m not sure there’s a compelling reason to visit more often. I’d like to see the property do better but I think that will take new ownership. We’ll see.

Cheap Drinks At Suncoast

I recently found two cheap drink options at Suncoast. The first deal (and most important to me) that I found at Suncoast is at their bars. They sell Corona and Heineken for just $2.Why is this such a good deal?

Well, Red Rock Resort (my joint) is just down the street and sells Corona for $4.50. That’s twice the price for a much nicer environment. There’s one caveat at Suncoast – you have to ask for lime for your Corona because of the lime shortage. THAT’S CRAZY! You’ll notice my beer doesn’t have a lime…yet.

Another cheap drink I found at Suncoast is $8 bottles of wine at Cafe Sienna. This isn’t much of a deal on a great wine since this is about how much the wine sells for at liquor stores. It’s just cheap booze. 🙂

The real win here is that you can get a 40% discount for the bottle if you pay for it using your B-Connected players club card. That’s a sweet bottle of cheap wine in a casino for $5 in comps! I haven’t tried this yet but I think I can be convinced fairly easily.
