Slots, Slots, and More Slots

I couple of articles caught my eye this morning, and they all add up to one thing -- more slots.

The Las Vegas Sun is reporting casinos, and more casinos in North Las Vegas.

More casinos means more slots, and it looks like Stations Casinos will continue its grip on the local's market.

I've been pretty hard on Stations, but they did send me a $15 food voucher for my birthday, so they're not all bad.

Truth be told, Red Rock is the nearest casino to me, so it is where I spend most my time. I really have no one to blame but myself for giving them my play.

The San Francisco Chronicle offers us this nugget about the amount of money spent on the Indian Gaming Wars, i.e. propositions for 17,000 more slots to be voted on tomorrow, Super Tuesday.

I don't live in California, so I haven't been subjected to the 69 ads per week, TV viewers in the Golden State are subjected to regarding these slots.

17,000 Slots would probably be the equivalent of 4 Large Casinos, so here in Las Vegas we'll get that increase in due course.

The good news for Cali players, if the props pass is more slot selection -- the bad news is they are in Indian Casinos that will pay a 25% tax on the profits. I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- these slots are gonna be tight.
