Main Street Station Artifacts and Antiques

One of the lesser known free Las Vegas attractions is the Artifacts, Antiques & Artworks collection at Main Street Station. They have a collection ranging from “The Blackhawk” private rail car used by Buffalo Bill, the entry doors from the Pullman Mansion, to chandeliers from the San Francisco Opera House and the Coca-Cola Building.

Total Rewards 50% Tier Credit Bonus

Total Rewards is offering a 50% bonus on Tier Credits earned between January 1, 2015 and March 31, 2015.

Caesars Entertainment Operating Company Bankruptcy

Caesars Entertainment Operating Company filed for bankruptcy today. That is not a surprise to anyone who has been following the issues. It is a voluntary reorganization intended to reduce Caesars’ long term debt. Guests and gamblers should not really notice a difference. The casinos and resorts are still open for business as usual. The Total Rewards players club is still intact and your comp/RC balances should not be affected.

Many of Caesars’ more popular properties in Las Vegas (like The Cromwell, The LINQ, Flamingo and Planet Hollywood) are actually owned or operated by other Caesars Entertainment subsidiaries and are not part of the bankruptcy filing.
