In Vegas it's all or nothing, and for a group of Deutsche Bank investors who decided to ante up $4 billion (one of the most expensive resorts in Vegas history) to develop a new hotel and casino, they're hoping the gamble will pay off.

By the look of things, we're betting it will. The Cosmopolitan will be the latest addition to the Las Vegas Strip. Cosmopolitan executives have said their approach in design, style, and amenities will cater to a new type of client, the kind who finds other Vegas hotels too formal and are searching for relaxed luxury. Sounds like a good spot for a Minx!
