The days are numbered for the iconic volcano on the Las Vegas Strip.

After more than 30 years of daily explosions at the Mirage, it has been confirmed that the volcano will be demolished as part of the resort’s full rebranding to Hard Rock.

When the Volcano was introduced in 1989, it was the first of several free shows that were introduced around that time, including the Pirate Battle at Treasure Island, the Fountains at Bellagio, and the Light Show at Fremont Street Experience.

The volcano space is expected to be used for an advertised guitar-shaped hotel tower. No demolition date has been announced.

Rams favored: The Los Angeles Rams are 4-point favorites against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Super Bowl. The game’s total opened at 50 and stabilized at 48.5. The betting handle is expected to increase significantly from last year’s pandemic-hampered results.

Re-adjustment of the ghost bar: The Ghostbar returns to the Palms. The rooftop nightclub which opened in 2001 is considered one of the first “ultralounges”. It became Apex Social Club in 2018 for a short time before the resort closed, but will resume its famous name when the Palms reopen this spring.

Just for Laughs: Wiseguys Comedy Las Vegas has opened in the downtown arts district. The club offers paid shows and free open-mic nights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Question: What is the betting line on how long it will take to sing the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl?

Responnse: The bet on the national anthem proposal has become a staple of the Super Bowl. This year’s line on how long it will take Mickey Guyton to sing the anthem is 1:35. That’s a low mark considering last year’s time was 2:17 and seven of the past nine have exceeded two minutes. You can’t bet this “prop” in the Las Vegas sports books; it is set up in the offshore books only.
