Our $10k Payday Contest is back and better than ever!

You probably like extra cash, especially when all you have to do is listen to 96.3 KKLZ to win it.

Of course many of us need to pay bills (maybe a few traffic tickets, too). But if we didn’t have these mundane financial responsibilities, how would you spend $500 in an outrageous manner?

Our town isn’t known for its subdue nature. In fact, Sin City is associated with bright lights, gaudiness and indulgence. So if you’re a local who won our cash contest, we have the perfect list for you.

Vegas is a city of excess, which means there are endless things to spend your money on. Our city offers some of the most luxurious experiences revolving everything and anything.

As a local, the “amazing” things about Vegas quickly become a part of our everyday life. However, there are still some experiences that many of us haven’t participated in.

Here are 11 things you can do with an extra $500 in your pocket that are simply out of the box, unique and fun!

  • Have A Dinner For One At Joël Robuchon

    It’s one of the most expensive and exclusive restaurants in Vegas. According to MGMResorts.com, guests can expect to pay nearly $500 per person at Joël Robuchon, which is located inside of The Mansion at MGM Grand.

    The $500 goes toward a 16-course tasting menu and that doesn’t include wine pairings.

  • Jump Off The Strat

    Have you ever wanted to jump off The Strat? SkyJump is an open-air leap that holds the Guinness World Record for “highest commercial decelerator descent facility.”
