happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Well,
so they say, But that leaves the
question – what happens in Vegas then?
Seriously, Vegas is all kinds of fun
whether you like to gamble, or watch the
shows, or just eat the incredible food.
Which ever reason you have for going,
there is something to be had for all.
There are easily more slot machines than
most people have seen in a life time,
and they are everywhere.
Truly, there are more slot machines in
Vegas than probably anywhere else in the
world. You get off the plane in the
airport – there are slot machines. You
go to the store, and you have slot
machines. Obviously the casinos have
them as well, but it gets to be a bit
extreme at times. But even so, there may
be tons of slot machines, but their
numbers are down just like they are
everywhere else. Slot machines are not
bringing in the money that they used to
as people just don’t have the money to
play at them. They are stuck trying to
make do with whatever they are getting
and are trying to figure out ways to
bring in more money.
say it is because President Obama told
people not to go to
Las Vegas. This
is not what happened – he told the big
companies that had been borrowing money
from the US under President Bush to stop
spending our taxpayer money on trips for
their executives to Vegas, and if they
didn’t need it they could give it back.
course, everyone took that as a slight
against Vegas, but they really did need
to give that money back. But it is the
normal guy who goes to play the slot
machines that has had an effect on them.
It is the guy who goes in each week and
plays for the heck of it, that can’t any
more because he lost his job. That is
why slot machine revenue is down.
