    The Lucky Cat was a temporary art installation that was only up until early June of last year. The fortunes were sometimes only fortunes but I won freeplay a few times when I went over the Memorial Day holiday. There were supposedly prizes of free rooms but the workers there said they hadn't seen anyone win a free stay yet (and it had been open for several months at that point) so there must have only been one or two of those prizes printed. It wasn't moved elsewhere in the Cosmo (I was there for two weeks last May and tried every day and spoke with the people who were running it - they weren't sure what was happening. They thought something else might go in that space, or that Lucky Cat might be moved elsewhere in the city. I went back twice last year in July and November, and there was no sign of Lucky Cat of any other art installation replacing it at The Cosmo.

    Lucky Cat has been removed and that area was currently under construction when I was there in January, however it was around until at least mid-October of 2015 as I took photos of friends with it during that month that I put in a trip report. I never heard of anyone getting the free rooms either, but like you we got free play, and some got free drinks and free buffets but most of the times I went I just got fortune. :)

    Me too. My gf got a free drink once. But really, I just loved it because it was silly fun. Whenever we walked past Cosmo or stayed there, we always had to go in and give the lucky cat a high five and take a pic

    It was my mission to make it to Lucky Cat during my stay at the Cosmo last Aug. Then I got sidetracked, lol. I really wish I taken that extra time to see that installation.

    I was wondering the same thing when I stopped by the Cosmo last weekend. According to the lady that I spoke with, the Lucky Cat space is being replaced by a Starbucks...

    It's interesting because one of the Vegas news sites mentioned it in affiliation with Chinese New Year & that you were supposed to stop & have your fortune done. I was thinking they may have put it up somewhere else in the hotel during this special time period but no one seems to have seen it yet. (And yes, this was a 2016 article).
