WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas ... the Player’s Edge!

JUST BEAT IT, No One Wants To Be Defeated ... The King of Pop’s slot machine made its debut in Las Vegas. Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, Smooth Criminal, Beat It and Bad are featured in the game as is some iconic Michael Jackson video. A spin on the wide area (a jackpot that is offered at many different casinos), penny progressive will go for 40 cents to $4. Look for the baddest machine on the planet early next year in your favorite casino.

IF YOU CAN’T WAIT that long, check out Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: Immortal starting Dec. 3 at Mandalay Bay. And if you need immediate Micheal Jackson gratification, then visit Madame Tussauds at the Venetian for “The Michael Jackson Experience” showing now through Dec. 27.

IF YOU’RE HOPING to get in on this year’s most auspicious date, you are not alone! Vacations Hawaii had people calling for reservations before

they uploaded the packages for 11/11/11 into their system. As of last week there were only a few seats left to join the action at the Cal’s craps three the table that hosted Stanley Fujitake’s historic threehour roll.

WHAT’S GOT the execs at the Wynn angrier than the birds on your phone? A group of craps shooters took them for $700,000! The casino says the shooter set the dice to a winning combination then slid them across the table without rolling them. Anyone who’s visited a craps table for more than a second knows you’ve gotta bounce the dice off the back wall. The casino says the same player slid the dice not once or twice but seven times ... How come the dealers never lose their collective peripheral awareness for me?

IT SEEMS LIKE every day is Halloween on Fremont Street, but the official second annual Las Vegas Halloween Parade happens Monday, Oct. 31. Look for the all-ages parade a block North of Fremont Street between 4th Street and Ogden. Anyone in costume can be in the parade. Go to 4th Street and Hoover by 6 p.m.

ELTON JOHN kicked off his second Sin City residency last week and surprised everyone with his show titled “The Million Dollar Piano.” It took Yamaha four years to build it, and most recently it called the Rocket Man’s living room home. If you saw “The Red Piano,” the six digit version’s imagery is considerably less sexual and more moderate. Also note that his shows run longer than the traditional 90-minute Vegas standard, so it’s a good idea to visit the lua before the curtain rises. Impress your friends with a little Reggie trivia the piano is named Blossom after jazz singer Blossom Dearie.

HOLLY MADISON, star of Planet Hollywood’s Peepshow, insured her breasts with Lloyds of London for $1 million ... Who knew silicone was that expensive?

IT’S TRUE the economy only sucks for some of us ... At the fourth annual Barrett-Jackson Auction held in Las Vegas they sold $24 million in cars. The first 2012 Camaro ZL1 offered to the public went for $250,000, but the king of the automoball was a 1964 Ford Fairlane that sold for $700,000!
