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

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS is now on HDnet ... Vegas Confessions is a new show that cruises the Vegas VIP rooms and gets celebs and everyday people to confess their Sin City transgressions. Hosted by Cindy Taylor (Wild On E!), the first episodes have (rapper) Ludacris and (rocker) Tommy Lee hang with five of Vegas’ best party girls and a newlywed getting surprised by a couple of hookers with Adam’s apples.

JOIN THE SHOWGIRLS of Luxor’s FANTASY as they host “Girls on Top"every Monday night at miX in the Mandalay Bay. Champagne bottle specials start at $60 and include chocolate-dipped strawberries.

LOOKING TO CELEBRATE your latest jackpot? ... Try a 1900 Chateau Petrus from Aureole in the Mandalay Bay. Before you get too thirsty, make sure it’s a big jackpot so you’re not in the hole. The magnum costs $45,000!

VEGAS ON SALE ... Every hotel has rooms on sale, some up to 75 percent off regular rates. If you haven’t been in awhile or wanna check out someplace new, just sign up for the hotels’ e-mail specials online.

SO THAT’S HOW the other half lives… Expedia has leaked the first images of the suites at Encore, sister property of the Wynn Las Vegas. Get the link at

THE VEGAS LINE on who we can expect to see at the Super Bowl XLIII came out last week (before the Patriots lost their third pre-season game). The oddsmakers said we’re most likely to be watching New England and Dallas play for the title next February in Tampa. The Cowboys are favored 2-1 to win the NFC, and the Pats 3-2 to take the AFC.

THE BOOKIES ALSO like Tiger Woods to win the 2009 Masters. He’s a 2-1 favorite at the Las Vegas Hilton followed by Phil Mickelson at 10-1, Padraig Harrington at 15-1 and defending champ Trevor Immelman at 50-1.

IT’S BAAAAK! Tim Lager, general manager of Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel, said “The million-dollar display is a major component of the Binion’s legacy, and a piece of Las Vegas history remembered and loved by locals and visitors alike. Reintroducing the display with a modern look is part of our strategy to preserve tradition while refreshing the Binion’s brand for today’s market.“The new pyramid display is filled with $270,000 in 100s, $688,000 in 20s, and $42,000 in singles. Vegas veterans will remember that the original display was created with 100 $10,000 bills. One of the original Binion bills from the display was listed on eBay for $160,000! Unlike the old display, there’s a catch to get your picture taken in front of the cash - the photo is free with $20 exchanged for $25 in non-negotiable (keep what you win) chips or slot play.

THAT WAS MULTIMILLIONAIRE Star Wars creator George Lucas gawking at the waitresses (can you blame him) and checking out the Olympics at the Hawaiian Tropic Zone ...

SEVEN OUT ... Ooh La La, the newest topless show at Paris, closes on Sunday. Also out: Luxor ventriloquist Ronn Lucas.

VEGAS MARQUEE DJs, DJ Crooked, DJ Neva and kimchi shoe guru Kenn Davenport have opened a streetware boutique called Knyew (pronounced new), and it’s an acronym for Keeping New York Everywhere. Get your culture a short cab ride from the Strip in Chinatown.
