Does anyone know the story of this shrine?
How about some any lucky stories about it?

According to internet sources, it looks like a 3 headed generic Brahma (Hinduist diety ) statute.
The only info I am aware are also what I can find from the internet.
http://www.markslasvegas.com/brahma-shrine/
"The Brahma Shrine at Caesars Palace. It is at the North end of the Roman Plaza, near Hell’s Kitchen, in front of Caesars Palace. It was made in Thailand and was installed with the supervision of Buddhist monks. The shrine is a replica of the Brahma Shrine at the Erawan Hotel in Bangkok."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahma
Brahma (Sanskrit: ब्रह्मा, IAST: Brahmā) is the creator god in Hinduism.[1] He is also known as Svayambhu (self-born) or the creative aspect of Vishnu,[2] Vāgīśa (Lord of Speech), and the creator of the four Vedas, one from each of his mouths. Brahma is consort of Gayatri and he is the father of Four Kumaras, Narada, Daksha, Marichi and many more.[3][4]

Right, I haven't seen it up close in person.
I only saw pictures of it from the internet, which looks like only 3 faces from the front.
Maybe there is an extra hidden face in the back, not visible from the front as in the picture.

Yes, 4 headed, I believe based on the 4 brahma viharas. Here's a photo I took of it:
