Real Deal on the Planet Hollywood
At first glance, Planet Hollywood looks like bomb went off at a fashion show for Quiet Riot fans. For those unschooled in the joys of hair metal, this is a good thing, right down to the soundtrack whose every 8th song is a kick ass Journey chestnut from the era before they went soft. Upon further inspection, Planet Hollywood finds its niche right between the too hip for school casino moderne set and the threadbare smokestack factories slightly past their prime. As such, prices run a slight bit higher than the Flamingo et. al., and the clubbers are - generally - on the other side of the street at Aria, Bellagio and Mirage. Planet Hollywood is instantly comfortable, hip and definitely fun.
Are the vibes lucky at Planet Hollywood?
Despite all the haranguing we and many other Vegas aficionados have given Planet Hollywood (mostly because the brand is tired and tacky) the casino at Planet Hollywood actually kicks ass. The flow to the floor is effortless, there's tons of eye candy, the dealers are great, the mix of games and limits are playable and the slot machines are covered in red pleather - which probably cost a lot of money. It's a fun place, good vibes and is definitely worth the visit... particularly the Pleasure Pit where the cards are dealt by hot women in lingerie. Yum.
What casino games are offered at Planet Hollywood?
Planet Hollywood offers the usual tables/slots and more in a beautiful multi-leveled gaming area. Lotsa neato nooks and crannies (particularly the Pleasure Pit, where dealers are wearing lingerie and the tables are surrounded by Go-Go dancers). Definitely explore more than the Miracle Mile/Starbucks entrance.
Games offered include slots, video poker, blackjack, craps, three card poker, roulette, baccarat, pai gow, let it ride and some carnival table games like Crazy 4 Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold Em.
Sports bettors should definitely check out their brand new sportsbook - The Playing Field. It's not very big, but it's comfy and there is a bar right near by that serves everyones favorite Vegas drink - the Yard of Beer.
Does Planet Hollywood have casino comps?
