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

SARAH LARSON won $50,000 on Fear Factor for eating a scorpion, but the Moon cocktail waitress has been on leave from the Palms because she’s been busy flying around the world in her latest role as George Clooney’s girlfriend. The couple got into a motorcycle accident last week in New Jersey that gave George a broken rib and Sarah some broken toes.

DANNY OCEAN is back on DVD and Ocean’s 13 starring George Clooney (Syriana, The Good German), Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting, The Bourne Supremacy), Al Pacino (Scent of a Woman, Godfather), Brad Pitt (Babel, Seven), Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, Crash) and Elliot Gould (Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve) comes out Nov. 13.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL reported that Boyd Gaming (Cal, Fremont, Main Street Station, etc.) stock soared 86 cents to $43.55 on rumors that the owners of the Venetian, Las Vegas Sands Corp., had the company in its sights.

SANDS CHAIRMAN Sheldon Adelson wants to build Las Vegas-style strips around the world, saying, “There are other parts of the world where we can convert gambling dens into cities of entertainment.

Good news for fight fans: The Dec. 8 match will be shown on HBO pay per view at the MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Treasure Island, New York-New York, Luxor, Monte Carlo and Excalibur. WHEN CHECKING IN to the

Monte Carlo, ask about the 32nd Club Floor and Lounge. For an extra $35 a night on weekdays and $50 on weekends you’ll be upgraded to a deluxe room on the 32nd floor that includes a concierge service and VIP lounge access.

HOW COME most big jackpot winners don’t know they’ve hit the big one and always put just $20 into the machine? Jomel Wilkinson of Bermuda was vacationing in Las Vegas when his girlfriend suggested he play the quarter Wheel of Fortune Mega Jackpot at the Luxor. You guessed it ... he had about $20 in the machine when the reels lined up and the guy next to him said, “you just won $494,112”!

“THE LAS VEGAS” is what Smart Beauty calls its new collection of coloring and styling products for the bikini area. There are seven shades (of course) and a Smart Bikini Styler that allows you to go as bare as you dare and includes 10 trimming templates. Dare we ask ... what will they think of next?
