VegasTripping is happy to announce that after months of negotiations, we've finally ironed out the last kinks in a merger buyout of the premier Las Vegas-centric user ratings and reviews destination - RateVegas.com. The terms of the deal will be released shortly, but we can confirm that this acquisition is, in fact, a results of a an all night game of Gin (which we won, obviously).

VegasTripping Director of Business Development, Vito "Two Fingers" Casaletto had the following to say "We're proud to add RateVegas, VegasLists and TwoWayHardThree to the 15 North family of websites. Hunter and his team of fine wine makers have done a fantastic job developing this fine cache of internet destinations, we're excited to incorporate their groundbreaking technology to make the best independent Las Vegas guide on the internets."

So the game plan moving forward is this - Hunter will be the head of the VT News and Podcasting department as well as blogging full time under the TwoWayHardThree banner. Additionally he will become a contributing Editor of Features in the "Gaming Industry" department. VegasLists.com will be incorporated into VT's MyVegas and both databases - PostgreSQL and MySQL - will be merged into a MSSQL database accessed through a brand new technology called ASP on Rails.

Welcome Hunter and the gang to VT!
