Casino Hosts — Concierges for Gamblers

This post is syndicated by the Las Vegas Advisor for the 888 casino group. Anthony Curtis comments on the 888 article introduced and linked to on this page.

A.C. says: The author references Steve Cyr’s interview in Cigar Aficionado. For those who don’t know, Cyr is the subject of our book Whale Hunt in the Desert, written by LVA’s Deke Castleman.

The article was written by Sean Chaffin in association with 888Casino.
