WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!

WHEN THE LEASE expired on the million-dollar digs he called home, Michael Jackson moved into his buddy’s house - a $60 million, 100,000-square-foot Las Vegas compound owned by Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei. The King (of Pop) has left the building ... for a bigger building.

THE NEVADA Gaming Commission has approved a new game we’ll soon be seeing in the casinos ... Pong! The game is the first of its kind because it’s a game of skill and not a game of pure luck like slot machines. The bonus round is randomly generated and occurs about once every 70 plays.

THE LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL out’ed the Della Spiga Cafe at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, located right outside FAO Schwartz. The café features 24 different flavors of gourmet gelato ... the big problem is the prices are only displayed next to the register and not where you order. Imagine the look on people’s faces when they learn their gelato is almost $17! Hang on to your wallet, ‘cause the “Terminator” (the extra-large size) is $35!

AFTER HER SECOND DUI arrest, someone asked what the Las Vegas line was on Lindsay Lohan shaving her head ... ouch! She reportedly told the police, “You can’t arrest me, I’m a celebrity.”

SPEAKING OF HOLLYWOOD bad girls, Britney Spears was thrown out of the Wynn because one of her bodyguards got into an altercation with a photographer that injured her son. The story gets uglier because Britney brought her kids to Vegas without permission from the California courts ... but don’t worry, she’s a celebrity too.
