“How casino high-rollers got hooked on dance music”
All roads lead to Los Angeles every October for the annual Monster Massive – a festival dedicated to dance music fans and avid audiophiles. But even without the Monster Massive, the world’s entertainment capital never runs out of something to offer dance music fans, from pulsating bars and clubs to talented and world-class DJs and artists. And among the biggest fans of LA’s dance music scenes are the casino aficionados, who regularly visit the city for high-stakes tournaments. In fact, some of the greatest DJs are known to be high rollers as well. Steve Aoki, the man who’s been on a quest to Aokify the world, is also quite the poker lover. He was even taught by Antonio Esfandiari, who’s credited with winning the biggest pot in poker history. Casinos and nightclubs patrons are always mixing in LA’s streets. The union is soon to be formalized, however, as Sam Nazarian, the man behind celebrity hotspot Hyde Lounge, has invested in the soon-to-open SLS Las Vegas. SLS Las Vegas is set to be “the birthplace of — and the gateway to — the next era of Las Vegas”, with renditions of his first nightclubs, and a casino packed to the hilt with IGT slot machines. IGT, whose games are also featured on Castle Jackpot, believes that the casino will help create “a phenomenal entertainment experience at SLS Las Vegas for local players and those seeking the hottest new travel destination.” SLS Las Vegas could very well be the next destination for people who want to experience great electronic dance music and state-of-the-art video poker and slot machines. But since the hotel isn’t opening until Labor Day Weekend, Los Angeles can rest assured that its patrons won’t be deserting it any time soon.
