PROOF THAT YOU never know when it’s gonna happen ... Allen Nitta of Kekaha, Hawaii, hit the Wheel of Fortune jackpot at the Main Street for $214,450! Then on Saturday, Justin Pantoham of Ewa hit the Wheel of Fortune at the Hard Rock and won $1,049,419! Putting in only $20, he said,“I wasn’t sure if I had won, I just wanted to spin the wheel.“Amen to that, brother!

MANY BELIEVE that boxing is taking a back seat to ultimate fighting. However, tickets for last week’s most lucrative fight in boxing history, the Mayweather-De La Hoya fight, started at $1,000 for nose-bleeds and up to $20,000 for ringsides. Since it came down to a decision, is a rematch in the future? Is George Washington on the dollar bill?

DIDJA HEAR about the two Vegas locals who booked $3.3 billion in sports bets over 28 months in New York?

LAST WEEK’S Baywatch babe swap had Pamela Anderson replace Carmen Electra in Hans Klok’s The Beauty of Magic. Her Vegas jackpot? About $4 million over 12 weeks.

HOPING TO spice up its (yawn) music awards, MTV is moving the show to the Palms Hotel in Vegas. Promising a full weekend of happenings, the 24th annual show is scheduled to air Sept. 9.

LOOKING FOR something spe-cial for the guy who has everything? How about a SKYLOFTS Porsche Escape - the new partnership combines the five-diamond award-winning accommodations with the high performance of a Porsche sports car and a personal butler to plan a thrill-seeking driving adventure created just for you.
