“GET ESP or wat?” is the bumper sticker that should be on Kailua resident Joan O’Connell‘s car. She hit not one, not two, not three, not even four ... but seven jackpots at the Cal, bringing her total winnings to $8,158 ... maybe it was her lucky Vacations Hawaii airplane seat? Cedric Conselua of Ewa Beach only hit one jackpot, but it was good for $6,000. And how about Dathan Kepilino of Honolulu? The Farrington High grad’s only jackpot was good for $25,000!

IF YOU’D seen every Vegas show for free, what would be your favorite? Mike Weatherford, the entertainment reporter for the Las Vegas Review Journal, has some surprising favorites. Then Nick Kallos, who’s done every job in the casino, talks about dealers and some of the outrageous things players have done Thursday at 9 a.m. on Sports Radio 1420 AM.

WHEN YOU or I walk up to a slot machine and put $20 in a $2 Reel Spinner, we’re good for at least 10 spins. Walking by the high limit salon I wondered how people play those $100 machines - the high rollers would have to put in 20 $100 bills or $100 in coins to get the same number of spins as we do. Well, at the Wynn Las Vegas, all you have to do is buy a ticket! Go to any cashier give ‘em your fist full of hundies and they’ll print a ticket that you can insert into any machine. With my luck, the ticket would get wet or I’d lose it.

WHODAGUY Ron Jacobs checks in to say that in or out of Vegas he’s never bet on a Rams game in the 45 years he’s been a fan. That’s the mark of a true fan - a 45-year commitment ... So how do you feel about the Red Sox, RJ?

VISIT to win a WPT Season III DVD boxed set ... and get more Kimo’s Vegas in MidWeek the Weekend and with Brickwood Galuteria Friday morning at 7:20 on Hawaiian105 KINE and in Oceanic Cable’s Around Hawaii.
