One Direction Barred From Las Vegas Casinos As Underage

One Direction's Las Vegas gambling plans came unstuck after they were barred from casinos because they are underage.

The pop stars were hoping to party it up in Sin City, recreating the boozy madness seen in 2009's The Hangover.

However, don't expect to see the boys striking it rich in the casinos - gambling bosses were ordered to keep the chart sensations out.

A source told The Sun: "The boys were hoping to go wild in Vegas by boozing and gambling into the early hours. But security at every casino in town knew who the lads were and threw them out because the legal drinking and gambling age in the US is 21."

While their gambling dreams may have been dashed, the boys will be able to console themseves by living it up in their swanky two-floor suite at the £16,000-a-night Palms Hotel, which has its own hot tub and basketball half court.

And it's not as if they needed to stop in the casino for a monetary boost - they are set to be worth £64m by this time next year.

UK Sony Music boss Nick Gatfied told The Mirror recently: "We fully expect to double (their current) £32m figure next year."
