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

THEY DON’T NEED much of an excuse to throw a party in Vegas, but Halloween is like the “Holy Grail” of Sin City holidays ... Chriss Angel (magician) hosts the Pure Halloween Bash, while Paris and sister Nicky Hilton do the honors at LAX. If hangin’ with the beautiful people isn’t enough for you, each club is giving away $20,000 for the sexiest costumes.

AUWE! If you had a problem making a reservation online, by phone or checking into the Bellagio, Mirage, TI or Signature at MGM Grand, their new computer reservation system was to blame. It took the IT department a few days to get the bugs out, but it’s all good now.

KIMO’S VEGAS SHOW TIP: Only in Vegas can you get $10 in cash (or free tickets to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum) just for watching TV. That’s the deal at Test America Preview Studios in the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood, and there’s a similar deal at the CBS Television City research center inside the MGM Grand. All you have to do is watch a TV pilot and tell them what you thought of the show.

ORCHID LOPES and Darlene Conselva of Ewa Beach both hit the Main Street video poker machines for $2,000.

BLONDE MOMENT ...Pamela Anderson has reportedly turned down a $10 million deal to pose for a 40-foot sign. The Vegas club Burning Bush wanted the newlywed to straddle a car wash on their outdoor signage. However, the ex-center-fold believed it would be harmful to her, ah, reputation ...

UNTIL NOW, the Wynn Las Vegas has been the city’s only 5 Star (Mobil), 5 Diamond (AAA) hotel, but that’ll change Nov. 9 when AAA announces its 5 Diamond award winners for 2008. Getting its fifth diamond for the first time will be arch-rival hotel The Venetian.

EVERYONE KNOWS the slogan “What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas,” but the mantra at the Palms is a little more CIA: “What Happens at the Palms ... Never Happened”!

THERE’S A NEW game in town ... Ante Up 21 combines two of the hottest casino games, blackjack and poker. First you play 21, then you play head-to-head two-card p5ker against the dealer (even if you bust). Check it out now at the Fremont, California and Main Street.

CHRISTINA BINKLEY used to write about casinos for the Wall Street Journal. Her new book coming out in March is titled Winner Takes All: Steve Wynn, Kirk Kerkorian, Gary Loveman and the Race to Own Las Vegas. In the book, she describes some tense meetings and touchy subjects with the kings of Vegas.
