As an Official Sports Betting Partner of the Raiders, BetMGM will utilize assets to provide educational information about the BetMGM app to Raiders fans. Sports fans in Nevada can now register for the BetMGM app, available on iOS and Android, by visiting any MGM Resorts Sports Book in Las Vegas.

“We’re thrilled that BetMGM is the first Official Sports Betting Partner of The Las Vegas Raiders,” said BetMGM’s CEO Adam Greenblatt. “This new partnership complements what is already a wonderful and rewarding relationship with MGM Resorts and the Raiders and we look forward to introducing Raiders fans to the excitement of sports betting with BetMGM.”

We look forward to providing Raiders fans a world-class sports betting and entertainment experience, both in our BetMGM Sportsbooks and digitally, through the BetMGM mobile app.”

 

Since partnering in January 2020, MGM Resorts and the Raiders have been committed to collaborating on community outreach programs benefiting Southern Nevada.

The program comes alive through personal interactions between guests and trained staff based at the M life Rewards desk at each MGM Resorts property.

MGM Resorts International and Nevada Public Radio Members Team Up to Provide Nearly 105,000 Meals to Three Square Food Bank

A collaboration between Three Square Food Bank, MGM Resorts International (MGM Resorts) and Nevada Public Radio results in 104,305 meals donated to people in Southern Nevada who are food insecure. According to Feeding America, currently one in eight Nevadans is affected by hunger.

During Nevada Public Radio’s 2019 fall membership campaign, new and renewing members had an option to donate meals to Three Square in lieu of receiving traditional thank you gifts, with MGM Resorts wholly covering the value of the donated meals. Upon completion of the campaign, 104,305 meals were provided by MGM Resorts to Three Square–Southern Nevada’s only food bank, which provides food assistance to the residents of Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark counties.

“We were proud to be involved in this year’s Nevada Public Radio fall membership campaign to help combat food insecurity in the Las Vegas community,” said Jyoti Chopra, Chief Diversity and Sustainability Officer, MGM Resorts International. “For more than 20 years MGM Resorts has partnered with nonprofit organizations, providing resources and services to those in need. As we look ahead to the new year, let us continue to join forces through public-private partnerships and extend our reach and impact to serve more people in need in Nevada.”

“Every year, our neighbor organizations in Southern Nevada show their true colors with generosity and compassion,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square. “MGM Resorts and Nevada Public Radio members opened their hearts to the families that we feed, and we are honored and grateful for their kindness and contribution to the fight against food insecurity in our community.”

In the fifth and sixth seasons of the hit comedy series, the Friends gang headed west to Las Vegas to visit Joey on the set of his movie. What happened there 10 years ago, however, did not stay there. In the two-part season five finale, Monica and Chandler took a roll of the dice and impulsively decided to get married –– only to discover that they were beaten to the chapel by a very drunk Ross and Rachel. In the season six premiere, the gang faced the consequences of the night before, while Joey and Phoebe headed back to New York in her grandfather’s Yellow Cab.

Visitors to Las Vegas can relive some of those moments –– minus any last-minute weddings –– in a weekend celebration of all things Friends October 18-19. Experiences planned for the Friends in Vegas weekend include:

Friday, October 18 

The Fountains of Bellagio

“I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour…” On Friday, Oct. 18, the iconic Fountains of Bellagio will unveil a brand-new show set to the catchy Friends theme song, “I’ll Be There For You” by The Rembrandts. Created by WET Design, the show will debut at sunset on Friday and run on rotation throughout the weekend and beyond. There will also be exclusive photo opps with the Central Perk couch, which will be on site in front of The Fountains.

Saturday, October 19 

AT&T 5G Friends Fan Experience at The Brooklyn Bridge, New York-New York  

AT&T is bringing Friends to life in brand new ways, giving fans opportunities to interact with their six favorite friends in a massive and immersive custom built experience that’s more 2019 than 1994 –– but not without nostalgia!

Many of the experiences will be powered by AT&T’s live 5G network and its 5G Innovation Program members, including Ericsson’s 5G network equipment, Nokia network infrastructure and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphones. The Fan Experience includes:

Phoebe’s Yellow Cab Escape Room

“It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear…” But for Friends fans, this will not only be their day, their week, their month, but also their year!  Located outside New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Phoebe’s Yellow Cab Escape Room offers the challenge of an escape room with the fun of a Friends trivia game, in a fully operational taxicab. Parked –– where else? –– on the Brooklyn Bridge, the Friends Escape Room allows fans to test their knowledge of the series inside Phoebe’s iconic mode of transportation. 

Here’s a sample to get you started:  Which of the following is not true?  A.  Phoebe inherited the cab from her grandfather.  B. Ross named it the “Death Cab” because of Phoebe’s driving abilities.  C.  Princess Consuela Banana-Hammock also owns the vehicle.  D. None of the above. If you guessed D, you’re a natural.  Head to Vegas to try your luck!

Central Perk LEGO®

Go big…or go home! At nearly 700 square feet, this re-creation of one of the series’ signature sets will be on display exclusively at New York-New York. Built out of 900,000 LEGO bricks over a period of four months, this life-sized re-creation from acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya features everything from the iconic sofa to the latest menu board.

Fun Facts:  No one has ever built a life-sized TV set out of LEGO bricks before. Although the creators binge-watched every season of Friends, it took them longer to build the set than to watch the series. The furniture is all fully functional –– allowing visitors to sit on the couches and chairs. The signature orange couch took the longest time to build –– as the most challenging part of the process was replicating the patterns in the upholstery.

A miniature version of the LEGO Central Perk set is now available at retailers nationwide. 

The 7th Friend Experience

Fans can record a 3D version of themselves doing Chandler’s happy dance or their own favorite move. Using AT&T’s 5G with Ericsson’s 5G network equipment, fans can drop their virtual twin into a miniature replica of Monica and Rachel’s apartment. This experience uses data-intensive volumetric video to put you in the center of the action, which can be viewed on Samsung tablets and the Galaxy S10 5G.

Performance by The Rembrandts

“I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before…” The Rembrandts will perform an exclusive live set at The Park, the immersive outdoor dining and entertainment district located adjacent to New York-New York. Famous for their iconic theme song, the musical duo will be on hand to perform their hits and other Friends-related songs. The concert will also be livestreamed over AT&T 5G with Nokia to a big screen onsite to make sure you have the perfect view as you belt out those memorable lyrics.

Give it Your Best

What better way to celebrate Friends in Las Vegas than with a Friends-themed karaoke booth where fans can sing along to iconic music from the show.

Marcel!

Also in the neighborhood, keep an eye out for Marcel, Ross’s onetime pet Capuchin monkey. Although Marcel has gone on to a successful film career with Jean-Claude Van Damme and more, he’ll be on hand to meet and greet fans. Autographs are discouraged. 

Friends in 4K & Download Station

The show first aired in 1994 using 35mm film, but has since been remastered in Ultra HD quality. Check out the release of Friends in 4K as it’s streamed using new Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphones with its immersive 6.7” Dynamic AMOLED screen over AT&T’s 5G network with Nokia. Fans can also stream their favorite episodes or download them in a matter of seconds – much faster than 4G speeds.  Compare the difference in a side-by-side 5G and LTE download station. Working with Nokia and Samsung, AT&T is offering these experiences on Galaxy S10 5G devices to let fans enjoy the show in new ways.

Friends Tech Timeline

It’s clear technology has changed since the show first aired –– remember voicemails and dating IRL? Guests can follow an interactive timeline that shows how Friends has used technology over the years and how different it is today.

Blue Man Group – Blue Friends Couch

The world-famous Blue Man Group may not be able to pivot a couch, but they sure can paint one. From their home at Luxor Hotel and Casino, the enigmatic Blue Men will transform the iconic orange Central Perk sofa in a way that only this bald and blue trio could. Their newly painted creation will be on display inside Luxor on Saturday, Oct. 19.  

And Much, Much More!

MGM Resorts International is celebrating Lunar New Year 2019, the Year of the Pig, with festive dragon and lion dances, spectacular displays and authentic cuisine at a variety of restaurants. 

According to Chinese culture, the pig is the 12th animal in the Zodiac and serves as a symbol of wealth, honesty and general prosperity. Individuals born in the Year of the Pig are known to be hardworking, compassionate and generous. They are ambitious and have a strong sense of responsibility to always achieve their goals. 

Dragon & Lion Dances

The gardens radiate hues of red and gold with 32,000 flowers, silk-lantern chandeliers and a family of pigs as the centerpiece.

Four happy, golden pigs welcome guests as they enter the Conservatory through breathtaking 20-foot jade medallions. Regarded as one of the most valuable and precious stones in Asian culture, jade signifies wisdom, bravery and honesty. Five pendants crown the top of the pavilion, each decorated with a gilded dragon.

A family of pigs capture visitors’ attention as they walk through the entryway surrounded by the riches of nature. Nine piglets are seen frolicking through fields of fruit and corn. Nearby, the North Bed depicts notable landmarks of Macau, including the Golden Lotus sculpture. The original sculpture marks the return of the sovereignty of Macau to China, marking its 20th anniversary this year. Across the gardens, a 32-foot tall replica of the Temple of Six Banyan Trees, a Buddhist temple in Guangzhou, China, towers over the South Garden closely guarded by two Chinese Fu Dogs. Giant red lanterns strung with fire crackers brighten the gardens overhead while koi fish swim in the tranquil pond below.

The Conservatory is complimentary and open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Lunar New Year display is open now through March 9.

Stay Well Meetings is the most comprehensive wellness meeting experience featuring healthy environments that promote high-performance meetings by increasing attendees’ energy, focus and productivity through evidence-based elements.

The November 2018 opening of the 7,000-square-foot Ideation Studio has ushered in a new way for people to meet. Working with Cisco Systems, Park MGM is the first hotel in the world to offer groups Cisco Webex™ Boards and Cisco Webex Teams, which give teams a virtual meeting space as well as messaging, file sharing, whiteboarding and even video calling. Whether in the room or virtually connected, groups can collaborate, share messaging, notes, files, presentations across all devices and have access to all the notes and materials long after the meeting has ended. Beyond the technology, elements within the Ideation Studio are based on behavioral science and how people interact with the environment. Chair and table height, lighting, flooring and room configurations were selected to enhance engagement. With four distinct layouts and 10 rooms for groups of six up to 24, the variety of options provide the right solution for that next strategic planning session.

Mark Cooper, IACC’s CEO, said, “The designs of Park MGM’s Madison Meeting Center and Ideation Studio have taken into consideration many of the trends and preferences from meeting planners that IACC has identified through its research. The Park MGM leadership team has poured so much dedication and passion into developing a haven for small meetings and we look forward to bringing our own events to these inspiring meeting spaces in the future.”

With 80 percent of MGM Resorts’ groups at 100 guestrooms or less, the Madison Meeting Center and Ideation Studio reflect the company’s commitment to providing small groups exceptional choices.

Las Vegas 3on3 Basketball Tournament Announces
Findlay Toyota “Prep King & Queen of the Court High School Bracket”

High School Basketball Programs are Cordially Invited to Square Up Against Each Other October 27 – 28 in the New Tournament Bracket 

 

 Las Vegas 3on3 will introduce the Findlay Toyota “Prep King & Queen of the Court High School Bracket” at its new event location, Las Vegas Festival Grounds, October 27 – 28. Local and out-of-state high school basketball teams are invited to bring their talents to the famous Las Vegas Strip to compete in the new bracket sponsored by Findlay Toyota. This bracket will give teams the chance to take on some of the nation’s best high school basketball programs, including the defending champions Findlay Prep Pilots, for an opportunity to be crowned “King & Queen of the Court.” 

Since its 2007-08 season, Findlay Prep has been highly successful with 280 wins and only 19 losses. Findlay Prep has won three National High School Championships and has advanced to six National High School Tournament Final Fours.  Since 2010, eight Findlay Prep Pilots have been drafted by NBA teams, including 2013 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett.  

“We wanted to bring the best high school athletes together for some friendly competition prior to their regular season,” said Daren Libonati, Vice President and General Manager of Festivals & Outdoor Venues for MGM Resorts International. “Playing in a 3on3 setting against a team known for producing some of the best high school athletes does not happen often, and I know the other teams are eagerly looking forward to having the chance to go head-to-head with one of the most elite squads in the country.”

The Findlay Toyota “Prep King & Queen of the Court High School Bracket” is priced at $140 per team. Teams will be bracketed according to height, gender, age and competition level. Registration is now open for the Findlay Toyota “Prep King & Queen of the Court Bracket.” Admission is complimentary for fans who wish to cheer on their favorite teams throughout the weekend.

Matt Santangelo, Executive Director of Spokane Hoopfest, said, “This new division is designed to encourage pre-existing rivalries to play each other for the ultimate bragging rights. This is the first high school division where we are bringing in such a well-known team ready to take on any willing competitor. I can’t wait to see the excitement on the courts and the increased competitiveness that will surely transpire.” 

As the world’s largest 3on3 basketball tournament for more than 29 years, Hoopfest has hosted over 24,000 players on 6,000 teams, 3,000 volunteers and 225,000 fans on more than 420 courts spanning 45 city blocks in Spokane, Washington. For the past three years, Hoopfest has partnered with MGM Resorts International to bring the exhilarating competition to Las Vegas.

Three Square Food Bank Works to Bag Childhood Hunger with ‘Fashion For Three Square’

Three Square Food Bank Works to Bag Childhood Hunger with ‘Fashion For Three Square’
Seventh annual event transformed Three Square headquarters into elegant social gathering in support of longstanding charitable campaign to benefit children in need


On Saturday, May 5, “Fashion for Three Square,” a special event underwritten by the Bennett Family Foundation, transformed Three Square’s north campus, which ordinarily houses operations, volunteering, food rescue, warehousing and distribution, into a grand party venue. The gathering featured elegant décor, fashion models, entertainment and local culinary tastes as attendees supported the Bag Childhood Hunger campaign, now in its seventh year.

The event featured fashions by Etro, presented by Neiman Marcus, along with food provided by top Las Vegas restaurants including: Blue Ribbon, STK, Buddy V’s Ristorante, La Strega, Libertine Social and Carnevino. In addition, Three Square’s executive chef John Hilton and his team prepared live dishes at the food bank’s demonstration kitchen & atrium. One of Three Square’s storage coolers was converted into an ice bar, featuring Artisanal Foods and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. MGM Resorts International provided an array of sweet treats. The event also welcomed entertainment from Las Vegas-based soul singer Jessica Manalo; Strip headliners The Australian Bee Gees, who performed hits from one of the most successful acts in musical history, the Bee Gees; and students from the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts.

Contributions made to Three Square’s Bag Childhood Hunger Campaign, which continues through May 31, will be used right here in Southern Nevada and will have double the impact thanks to a generous $500,000 contribution to match gifts toward the food bank’s goal to raise $2 million.

The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign supports one of the most vulnerable populations in Southern Nevada, children. Proper nutrition for children is critical as hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges. One in four children in Southern Nevada live in households that are food insecure. Additionally, more than 62 percent of children in Clark County schools are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs. That’s more than 203,000 students.

In its 10th year fighting hunger, Three Square is able to provide three meals for every dollar donated to the food bank. Thanks to the support of matching sponsors throughout this campaign, Three Square will be able to provide six meals for every dollar donated.

To make a donation to Bag Childhood Hunger and for further information about Three Square’s childhood nutrition programs, visit www.bagchildhunger.org or call 702.644.3663, ext. 334.

About Three Square Food Bank
This year marks Three Square’s 10th anniversary serving as Southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger relief organization. The nonprofit offers wholesome, nutritious food to nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites that serve a wide range of Southern Nevadans. A national model project inspired by Founder Eric Hilton with a grant provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with businesses, nonprofit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the Clark County School District, governmental entities, the media and thousands of volunteers to efficiently and effectively work together to serve those in our community struggling with hunger. Three Square currently provides more than 37 million meals – the equivalent of more than 45 million pounds of food and grocery product – per year through a network of more than 1,600 community partners. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks.

MGM Resorts and Sydell Group Reveal Pool Oasis at Park MGM in Las Vegas

 

MGM Resorts and Sydell Group Reveal Pool Oasis at
Park MGM in Las Vegas

Connect and socialize with craft cocktails, plush cabanas and poolside bites

MGM Resorts International and New York-based Sydell Group have debuted the new pool oasis at the much-anticipated Park MGM. Channeling the sundrenched South of France, the vibrant outdoor escape features three pools, an oversized heated spa, 12 cabanas, lounge areas and multiple bars serving up delicious bites and beverages.

“Park MGM’s pool scene was designed as the focus for social gathering, an open-air enclave where guests can connect and unwind,” said Patrick Miller, Park MGM’s president and chief operating officer. “Balancing the energy of Vegas with the sophistication of a European retreat, we’ve created an alluring space that offers a variety of experiences for our guests.”

Guests can mingle among friends at one of three pools – the South Pool, the East Pool or the North Pool – while lively music evokes a cool, laid-back vibe. Martin Brudnizki Design Studio drew inspiration from the natural surroundings of a country estate, incorporating layered horticulture to shape each pool space.

In addition to chaises throughout the deck area, each pool boasts Baja shelf seating and submerged wet decks, allowing guests to sunbathe while staying cool. Those seeking an elevated experience can upgrade to the VIP area by the East Pool, where they’ll find deluxe cushioned chaises.

Pool Features

  • Craft Drinks – Three bars offer refreshing poolside cocktails, such as the Park Punch, a frozen pineapple cocktail and mix-and-match craft beer buckets. Guests can keep cool with drinks including young coconut, fresh fruit juices and a Bacardi Dragonberry rum-spiked Frosé topped with ripe strawberries. Vista Bar serves as the main pool bar, featuring a tropics-inspired beverage program and dedicated seating with a view overlooking the pool.
  • Poolside Bites – Light bites and poolside fare include mouthwatering dishes ranging from a Watermelon & Arugula Salad to Fajita Chicken Nachos. A Tuna Poke Bowl made with spicy tuna, pickled carrot, English cucumber, green onion, toasted sesame, nori and steamed rice offers a light treat ideal for Vegas’ hot summer days.
  • Reserved Seating – Chaise lounges are available for reservation throughout all three pools. Guests who reserve these seats will enjoy complimentary amenities throughout the day from frozen grapes to specialty cocktails.
  • Private Cabanas – Twelve private cabanas serve up VIP treatment with deluxe amenities including a 55” LED television; misting system; personal safe; and ample seating with plush cushions, lounges and umbrellas. Cabana guests enjoy a variety of beverages including large-format bottle service and fresh, summery food.

The new pool experience is part of MGM Resorts and Sydell Group’s partnership to transform Monte Carlo Resort and Casino into two new distinct hotel experiences: a Las Vegas version of Sydell’s widely acclaimed NoMad Hotel, and a new luxury resort, Park MGM. Upholding MGM Resorts’ commitment to environmental responsibility, Park MGM’s poolscape incorporates sustainable horticulture, including a selection of climate-appropriate species to mitigate water usage, and palms and fully grown trees salvaged from the existing site.
