Castle grad Jacquelyn Holland
as Donna Sheridan at Mandalay
Bay

HENRY TAMBURIN, who’s been teaching people how to gamble for over 25 years, has written 10 books and teaches everyday people how to be a card counter in two days! What’s it like to play blackjack for a $1 million? Can he really teach you how to play craps in five minutes? Find out Tuesday at 6 p.m. on KORL 690AM and Oceanic Cable 882.

OK, you Castle High School alums, get out your annuals … Perched on the roof of many Vegas cabs is a sign that proclaims “Mamma Mia, The No. 1 Show in Vegas.” The star of the Mandalay Bay’s pride and joy is Jacquelyn Holland (she plays Donna Sheridan). The Castle grad was also the costar of EFX with Rick Springfield.

THE MGM Grand has the hot new sports book … count ’em: 36 60-inch plasma TVs, eight 42-inch plasmas, three electronic display boards and 17 betting counters. Each seat has an LCD TV with worldwide access to sporting events (who needs a room?). But what makes the MGM so Grand is … SKY BOXES! Each Skybox comes with a plasma TV, surround sound and seats 10.

DOES YOUR slot machine hand twitch whenever you see the Cars Cost Less at Cutter slot machine commercial that was filmed at the Cal? Then you’re overdue, and the Cutter guys are giving away choke trips to Vegas (at the Cal, of course). Just test drive a car to win.

DON’T FORGET, the Cal’s eighth annual Lei Day lineup includes an Opihi Pickers Block Party Concert on April 29. And the next day, members of the Pandanus Club (Ken Makuakane, Chris Keliiaa, Roddy Lopez, Jeff Rasmussen) jam with Marlene Sai, Gary Aiko, Bill Kaiwa and Nina Keali‘iwahamana! Stop by the festival and say hi to local artists Peggy Chun, Marc Turner and more!


The Wynn Las Vegas is the most expensive structure
ever built

STEVE WYNN says the Wynn Las Vegas is the most expensive, complex, ambitious structure ever built — in the world! There is no other $2.7-billion hotel … there is no other $2.7-billion anything, anywhere. The Wynn Las Vegas costs $400 million more to build than Euro Disney with a balance sheet equivalent to the bank of England … can I borrow 10 bucks for a Diet Coke?

IF LUCK is where preparation meets opportunity … then www.wizardofodds.com is where all the lucky people have gone. What I like about this site is it explains every casino game and lets you practice the game for free!. The site is simple for beginners and has the math for the gamblers who went to private school.

HAWAIIAN105 KINE is giving away Vegas trips starting Monday … complete with $500 in cash, room at the Golden Nugget, and you get to ride on Hawaiian Air’s new Midnight Madness flight.

SEEN POWER shopping in Vegas: Carole Kai, Jeanie Matsuda, Frannie Kirk and Dirk Fukushima. If you’ve ever seen Carole Kai shop, you know she can carry her weight in shopping bags and not break a sweat.

MAHALO FOR checkin’ out Kimo’s Vegas … Congrats to the Higas, who won tickets to see “V the Ultimate Variety Show” at the Aladdin Desert Passage. We’ve got more.
