Kim Kardashian is featured in this week's Ecks-Rated Tales From Vegas

Ecks-Rated Tales From Vegas: Kim Kardashian's Next BF, Cheapo Concert Tickets & How To Win A Horse Bet!

LAS VEGAS - Kim Kardashian is all over the news and social media, and the MOST important question before us is, who is next. Who is gonna share Double Ks life & bed?

Who will Be Kim's Next Boyfriend?

We have seen Kim Kardashian odds in a few places, and the popular names at the top of the list include Michael B. Jordan, not to be confused with just plain old Michael Jordan.

Apparently, the oddsmakers have not listed ANYONE from the Subban clan. Make a call to your favorite bookie and ask him to put a price on Pernell-Karl Sylvester Subban, PK to his friends, who is a free agent after breaking up with superstar skier Lindsey Vonn.

And if you're looking for a LONG SHOT, ask for a price on PK's brother Malcolm, who is a goalie for the Rochester Americans in the AHL. Or, you could try baby brother Jordan. I'm listing the Subban brothers as an entry at, with odds of 12/1.

BetBenj is not official yet in the U.S., but there's a small island off the coast of the Dominican Republic where you can throw down a wager!

It's called Cayos Siete Hermanos and ranks among the wildest and least visited islands in the Dominican. Located about seven miles off the coast, it is mostly uninhabited except for the birds, crabs, lizards and the BetBenj tent which provides the only SHADE on the island.

Normally, concert tickets can run you over $100 and up to $500/$600 for front row seats. This is officially Concert Week, and you can get in to a bunch of joints for ONLY $25, ALL fees included.

Mage Cashes For Your Guy!

Close up shop this week with my Kentucky Derby BIG BUCKS BANG!

As you know, I know very little about horses and need to tap into a few experts to get a sense of what's what in the Triple Crown races.

This year started out a bit different.

With all the death & scratches at the Derby, I was prepared to just sit and watch. When the horses came out of the barn and walked on to the track, Mage was bucking and rearing up, and I'm like, hmmmmm.

Then I did a little dive into his jockey, Javier Castellano. Turns out that Castellano is a Hall of Fame jockey who ranks second among North American jockeys in career earnings. Also found out that Javier was 0-15 at the Derby.

Yea, OH for FIFTEEN! So, he's DUE right? HELLZ YEA!

Mage ran a gorgeous race and this guy's ticket was listed at 17-1. SEVENTEEN TO ONE odds baabbbeee!

Mrs. Ecks-Rated is still asking me every day how much I won, but as every gambler knows, you NEVER tell how much you bet, how much you won or how much you lost.
