COMING SOON to a Vegas casino near you ... Shuffle Master has introduced Table Master Blackjack and Table Master Three Card Poker. The new versions of the traditional table games seat five players and feature a life-size dealer, who interacts with the players, pays winners and collects losing hands. The difference is the dealers are now virtual dealers - actors and actresses who were recorded and are played back on large TV screens while you play. Soon we’ll be able to play against our favorite celebs like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie.

AND THE Wynn-er is ... A couple of columns ago we talked about the 20-foot-tall letters T-R-U-MP on The Donald’s new building ... the folks at the Wynn are quick to respond that their boss’s name is 69 feet tall (from the top of the W to the bottom of the Y). When you’re a billionaire, you can afford to have sign envy.

THE VOODOO CAFE on the 50th floor of the Rio has been renamed the VooDoo Steak Restaurant.

THE TOP 10 fashion cities for 2007, according to the Global Language Monitor, are 1) New York, 2)  Rome, 3) Paris, 4) London, 5) Milan, 6) Tokyo, 7) Los Angeles, 8) Hong Kong, 9) Las Vegas and 10) Singapore. It’s the first time Vegas has made the list.

IT’S LIKE finding money on the street ... The Golden Nugget and Binion’s are giving away 10 bucks in free play just for joining their players club.

TO DISTRACT US while we are gambling, the casinos give away free booze served by sexy cocktail waitresses. Then came the Pussy Cat Doll dealers at Caesars, followed by the Playboy Bunny and Playmate dealers at the Palms. Now at Harrah’s you can watch your favorite game on the 40 plasma screens TVs while you shoot craps or play blackjack in the Sports Pit.

IT’S A NICE place to visit, but you may not wanna live there ...
