LAS VEGAS (AP) — It’s a long way from Birmingham, England to Las Vegas, and James Kennedy isn’t likely forget his first trip to Nevada’s gambling metropolis.
Kennedy was treated to a superstar welcome Monday when he became the 40 millionth visitor to the Stratosphere Tower, a famous Las Vegas attraction that stands 1,149 feet.
He was greeted by Stratosphere vice president and general manager Paul Hobson with balloons, an entourage of Stratosphere staff and cameras.
Kennedy was presented a package of “getaway” goodies valued at $2,500.
His prize includes a two-night stay for two in a Stratosphere Suite, dinner for two at the Top of the World Restaurant, show tickets, champagne, $1,149 in free slot play and limousine service.
