Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium opens Sept. 7
Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium opens Sept. 7

DETROIT PISTONS’ backup center Dale Davis was shot with a stun gun and arrested, and charged with disorderly conduct in Miami Beach after refusing to leave a hotel and threatening security officers and the police. He has a $250,000 line of credit in a couple of casinos including the Venetian (hope he’s not that mad when he loses).

NEW YORKERS will tell you that some of the best Italian food in America comes from Italian kitchens in New York. If you follow that logic and call the shots at Caesar’s Palace, you’d do a deal with Rao’s - one of the most exclusive restaurants in the Big Apple. It used to take reservations a year in advance, but now its regular customers easily keep its tables filled (it only has 10). Later this year, you’ll be able to eat the same food that celebs, politicians and famous New Yorkers have been dining on since 1907 at Caesar’s.

CONGRATS to the Cirque du Soleil Mystere team on their 6,000th performance!

DELIRIUM, Cirque du Soleil’s first-ever arena show, is at the MGM Grand Garden Sept. 7-9. This is the most massive technical production ever created to tour arenas. DELIRIUM is a multifaceted event of unprecedented proportions.

HAVE YOU seen the latest addition to the Wheel of Fortune Slot Machine family? It’s called the Wheel of Fortune Super Spin. Nine players sit around a HUGE Wheel of Fortune. It’s a 40-line, 10-bet penny machine, $4 max bet per spin and the bonus round hits once every 40 spins (on average). The payback percentage on this Nevada-only wide-area slot is between 88.4 percent and 89.2 percent. It’s fun to play and watch people play because Pat and Vana make frequent appearances. The latest casino to add the machine is the Imperial Palace ... But you’ll find it at Caesar’s, Monte Carlo, Barbary Coast and 330 other casinos. The progressive is more than $5.9 million and resets at $1.5 million, and definitely worth an Andrew Jackson. Check out all the Mega Jackpots at
