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

THE GOLDEN Nugget‘s expansion plans got approved, and it will be adding a new tower, a second casino, more restaurants and other entertainment offerings (maybe even an aquarium). The expansion will occupy an entire block of Carson Avenue (the street with its parking lot).

DOWNTOWN Gordie Brown has extended his Golden Nugget contract through March 2006. This is a great mid-priced show that Alexa (Krater96 weekend love songs hostess) highly recommends.

MARITZA Dillion wins big when the Quarter Million machine pays off at the Palms ... $363,577 on a quarter slot! At the Fremont, Amelita Alfaro of Ewa Beach won $25,820 on the $1 Black Gold, while at the Cal, Frank Tsuchitori Jr. of Honolulu won $20,000 on two 10x’s pay jackpots.

THE WORLD Poker Tour, Five Diamond Bellagio Tournament is happening now - let’s all wish the Hawaii players good luck. Last year’s prize pool totaled over $5 million and Daniel Negreanu had the $1.7 million first-place payday.
