WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!
LAS VEGAS native Andre Agassi has announced that the ‘06 U.S. Open will be his last pro tourney. The eight-time Grand Slam champion won the open twice - in 1994 and 1999. You bet the folks in Sin City are pulling for their local boy to go out with another win.
WE’VE ALL heard the story of Britney Spears marrying her childhood sweetheart late one night in Vegas.

It’s not Britney’s fault - the bureau’s trying to save a little money ... from now on hitching hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

WASSUP at the Planet Hollywood? The evolution from Aladdin to Planet Hollywood is going much slower than anticipated. Look for the conversion to be completed as late as spring 2007.
PEOPLE ARE always asking me if there’s a foolproof method to picking a hot slot machine ... The players at Caesar’s Indiana found such a machine, without a jackpot being hit or a reel being spun. Huh?
Seems the machine’s bill validator was set to read Philippine currency, so when players inserted a $100 bill the machine registered $1,000 in credits. Akamai players immediately cashed out! Two days and $487,000 later, that’s the kind of hot machine we’d all like to meet.
