Yet Another Update : Planet Hollywood Launches New Website - now with less Crap

Newly uncorked Planet Hollywood Resort Casino has pushed out a brand new website to go with it.

Its a Flash 9 interface embedded into PHP on a Windows server (? - Tomkat? - check the 404 page). The design features all sorts of sliding doors and vertical bars moving around the joint. Particularly annoying is the soundtrack to the "Stomp Out Loud" video loop on the homepage. Yikes. The photos on the main category pages are quite goofy - most notably the George Clinton wannabe on the Entertainment and the wiggy royalty on the dining page.

From a graphic design point of view, the designers of the site don't have a particularly good command of typography, the left navigation is quite bland. Why not use some neato stylized fonts? It is flash after all.

Follow the link to check it out and see whats new at P-Ho.

And one more thing: VT Reader Clifford (thanks Cliff!) mentioned that the Table Games listing has no mention of craps. So if you're one of those people who believe everything they read on the internet... ahem... don't bother going to Planet Hollywood to play craps, cause there ain't any.

And yet another thing...

So Clifford emailed the P-Ho PR department about whether or not they have craps. He was kind enough to forward the email exchange:

Clifford -

It was an oversight. The Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino DOES how Craps tables; we have eight of them. Thank you for calling the oversight to our attention.

On your web site you list a long list of table games, but Craps is not listed. Has the casino removed Craps from the table game offerings since the change over from being the Aladdin casino? Or was this just an oversight by bad web site programmers and people who can't properly proofread?


Way to rake em over the coals Clifford... you win an award. Not really sure what it is, but we'll think of something. Props to Andrea for being nice in her reply. Hysterical.

No mute on the Stomp promo. A bar themed on the tv show Extra? is Sugar Ray dude or Pat O'Brien pouring the scotch????

How can you have a casino without craps?
