    Hey guys,

    I just finished a 5 day visit to Vegas. Went from maybe 1,000 TCs Sapphire to Platinum at mLife during that time. I was wondering how tough it is to get a room and tickets to the fight at this point. I know they haven't officially gone on sale, but I assume many big mLifers will be in town and at the event.

    Any advice on how to go about getting there? Are tickets comped or discounted for anyone?

    And if that isn't possible, are there good viewing parties that I could find my way to at any mLife properties? Thanks!

    NYNY has sent out invites to their viewing party. You should call there and ask to speak to a host.

    well 92% of the rooms in vegas are sold out for may 2nd , excalibur rooms which are usually $50 ish are aroung the $600 a night mark

    tickets to the fight .........no chance at all unless you want to spend between $5k - $7k to sit in the nosebleeds

    you may get a ticket to a screening but it will cost you around $150 upwards


    good luck

    This is one of those times when having a good relationship with a host and/or concierge pays off. And, they need to know from prior interactions that you're going to make it worth their while.

    Elf70,

    Did NYNY send out the invites to their viewing party to loyal NYNY players? Trying to grab some tickets to a viewing party.

    I assume I got an invite because of past play there. The first invite was from my host. The second was a generic email.

    Online at MLife, I'm seeing every suite everywhere sold out. Platinum rate for rooms at Luxor or Excalibur for less than $300. Monte Carlo at $370. NY NY and Mandalay at $600+, and everything else at $1,000+. The MGM Grand properties are at $1,300+. Those are all just for the most basic room you can get. Insanity! It's going to be epic.

    I got an invite to the viewing party at NY NY as well. Also got one from Monte Carlo. No real details on the e-mails.

    the lack of information on viewing parties and general tickets (if any) is frustrating

    Agree. I think tickets go onsale next week though so we should hear about the viewing parties shortly after. Do not worry, MGM will have a ton of them to accommodate the entire strip.
