SAY YOU’VE just won a potload of cash, it’s early in the morning and you’d like to do something “Rich & Famous.” Now you can get the world’s most expensive … pedicure. The Amp Salon at the Palms has a special after-hours VIP Pedicure — a lingerie-clad technician (ladies can get the male dancer option) will do the toe-job and you’ll be served Cristal by candlelight with appetizers from N9NE steakhouse. The cost for such luxury? $2,000 for one and $3,000 if you wanna bring a friend.

THE SALE OF Caesars to Harrah’s is pau, making Harrah’s the largest gaming company in the world … folks everywhere are wondering wassup? Chairman and CEO Gary Loveman says Bally’s will be renovated and re-themed under a new name. They may even implode it and rebuild it as … The Horseshoe!

HARRAH’S and MGM Mirage will continue to employ different strategies … (good news for players). MGM Mirage continues to fill its rooms with cash-paying customers who are attending conventions, shows and other nongaming attractions. While Harrah’s continues to focus on gamblers.

PENN & TELLER will perform the “World’s Largest Card Trick” at the opening of the 36th Annual World Series of Poker at the Rio … we can’t reveal the deal (bad pun intended), but they’ll be shuffling the giant 4-by-8-foot aluminum cards with forklifts!
