The $10 Million Raid the Vault & Legendary Loot Spectacular also has an online component whereby visitors to raidthevault.thelvh.com can win prizes daily including the chance to win a “Party Like a Rock Star Package.”  This exciting package rewards the winner with a stay in an LVH suite plus a meet & greet party (where they can invite ten of their friends) with celebrities in one of the LVH’s amazing Sky Villas.  A total of 12 such packages will be given away during the course of the promotion.
