(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Las Vegas will soon have a new area code.  The state Public Utilities Commission will decide on a new code, because available numbers in the current 702 area code are expected to run out by the middle of 2014.

New customers will use the code, but all phone users will have to dial a ten-digit number for local calls.

Unfortunately for bettors, it’s unlikely Vegas’ new area code will be 777, since triple digits are reserved for various services.

The 702 code was first used in 1947.
