The $20 Dollar Trick Nets Sahara Visitor The Elvis Suite (minus the $20)

Sahara Elvis Suite

We get a lot of press releases from casinos, usually hyping some ridiculous ploy to get you to spend (or lose) more money, 99% of the time, we give it a quick scan and click *delete*. However, a recent email from Sahara Las Vegas deserves mention, particularly since we were just talking about how they chose to announce new casino stuff on The Hills instead of here, or at least somewhere competent and interested folks will read it.

Sahara has begun running a 'double secret promotion' at their reception desk - a lucky winner will get an instant upgrade to the Elvis Penthouse Suite, without having to slip the clerk a $20 - or more. This is the suite that The King stayed at while filming "Viva Las Vegas".

Thomas Bagshaw Sahara Suite Winner

And the lucky winner is... Thomas Bagshaw of Gact, California standing like a deer in the headlights at Sahara's reception desk upon finding out that his $40 room has been upgraded to the $1500 Elvis suite - for free.

Seeing that guys grin alone is worth $1500 bucks to me... congratulations Thomas!



Comments & Discussion:

I now have a goal in life...........to stay in that room!!

I was thinking that this might be a great location for the 'Oh Lordy Chuckmonster's 40' party in Nov 2009. :D

Have you seen the suites at Bills Gamblin Hall? Wow, 1980's. Red walls with black leather couches and mirrored headboards with the black lacquer furniture. I want one of those rooms to party in so bad.

BUT looking at this suite at the Sahara, this thing does not look worthy of $1500 a night. It's probably $500 a night and they tack on that extra $1000 because ELVIS stayed there. LoL

That is an EXCELLENT freaking idea, CMo.

Now carry on and pretend you never mentioned this.
