E-421: Neeeeeerow

 Random Vegas

Caesars Entertainment's loyalty program uses 90 different demographic segments for its customers. "Player value" is most associated with frequency of play, type of game played and number of coins/credits per spin or hand. (via Vital Vegas, via "Addiction by Design" by Natasha Dow Schull)

I never had the chance to check out Lady Luck.  The first time I came to Vegas was 2004 and the property was already closed at the time.  I’m told, at least in the end, she was a dump.  But there is something about neon that romanticizes the past, regardless of its shitholery. That’s what Lady Luck’s Neon exterior does.  It’s a shame that we lost such an iconic name as well but again, having never experienced the place for myself, its easy for me to say.  My vision of the property will always be influenced by the feelings it stirs up when I look a pictures like the one shared by @summacorp.

Lettering longer than a football field and taller than a house is what travelers got to experience upon a person’s arrival at the original incarnation of the Stardust.  Part of the magic of Vegas is the often larger than life displays, whether it be the signage or experiences, available every time you visit.  Its also one of the reasons why the Neon Museum exists and is so popular.  Having the opportunity to roam amongst the titans of old gives you a perspective unique to the city and its magic.  Thanks to @_GrandPaD for sharing this flash back in time
