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. http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2008/feb/04/casinos-and-more-casinos-coming/
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 http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/04/BANSUQN1M.DTL 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.
