Nevada Casino Win Drops 14 Percent
Nevada's casino win for the month of November 2007 dropped 14 percent compared to November 2006. "Experts" attributed the slump to a decrease in the number of high rollers - baccarat play was down 61% - and a lack of any major events during the month.
I can't help but think that maybe we - as a collective gambling community - are hip to the casinos game these days. They've been ratcheting down slots, yanking out full pay video poker, 6:5 blackjack is taking over and lots of bj and craps tables are being replaced by high house advantage carnival games like Three Card Poker, Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud and more.
Could it possibly be that visitors have started to realize that there is NO beating these changed games and are spending their money elsewhere - shows, food, shopping, lap dances?
Are you more or less likely to gamble when you visit Las Vegas now then you were three - five years ago? If you are less likely, what has changed to make you less likely?
