I found this really good 2014 documentary on Las Vegas. It feature brand new interviews with

Gary Loveman
Steve Wynn
Jim Murren

Its on NETFLIX. Its called “The Player: Secrets of a Vegas Whale”. I highly recommend it.

Agree that its a good one - certainly better than most Vegas TV programs. It first aired on Bloomberg in January. You can watch it on their website.

I remember the show and seems like they put a lot of emphasis on the rules (all of which were offered at low limit tables on the Strip until the late 90s) Johnson was able to negotiate, when the big thing that helped him was the discount on losses he was able to negotiate. He also claimed that he would bring various entourages in to try and distract the dealer into making errors.

Pretty sure this is the same tool who offered to pay deadmau5 $200,000.00 to play Livin' On a Prayer, and then didn't pay up. Not that I really have a dog in that fight.

For $200,000 you could get Bon Jovi to play it live. Some people have waaaay too much disposable income

I think for $200 in chips, a couple buffet comps and a bottle of white wine (with screwtop) Bon Jovi will play an entire concert

It'd at least get you "halfway there".

Bon Jovi supposedly asks $1 million+ for private shows.

This guy was able to negotiate loss limits during the Great Recession that nobody could get now...

He figured out how to work the system, and eventually was trespassed from just about every major Vegas Property..

If you don't have access to Netflix, you can also Google ''Secrets of a Vegas Whale'' and it pops up via Bloomberg's website..
