Half-price holidays: As it does every year during the holidays, South Point is running its “Pay Less with Your Points” promo, during which almost everything is half-price when you use club points. This includes all restaurants and bars, hotel rooms, shows, bingo, bowling, spa and salon, movies and the gift shop. Drinks at the bars are $2 ($1 with points). The promo runs Monday through Dec. 24.

Question: Is it still possible to get rooms for New Year’s Eve?

Answer: Yes. In a check of 93 hotel-casinos late last month, 78 had rooms available. The lowest-priced room for New Year’s Eve was at the Lucky Club in North Las Vegas for $200. Others at the lower end for price were Gold Coast for $305, South Point for $366, Circus Circus for $387, along with two-night packages at El Cortez for $548 and Binion’s for $558. The most expensive was a two-night package at Nobu for $2,197.
