Atlantic City Casino Revenues Experience Double Digit Loss

5106454e-e5cc-11de-af1d-001cc4c002e0.preview-300.jpg

Remember when the news was always good for caisinos? It seems lately the news is always about losses - and everyone here at Casino Snob is sick of it. Seems the east coast Vegas is experiencing year long decline to put the losses in the double digits.

Overall, Atlantic City's casinos took in$299.3 million in revenue for November, down 13.4 percent compared with the same month a year ago. Slot winnings declined 9.5 percent to $206.8 million, while table game revenue plunged 21 percent to $92.5 million, according to figures released Thursday by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission.

Good luck Atlantic City - we're going to hang in there with you and hope for an amazing 2010.

Online Gambling Under Renewed Scrutiny - Go Figure

Like this is a big surprise according to Information Week Congress has begun to grapple with the thorny issue of online gambling and Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has indicated he'll push new legislation that will legalize some forms of online gambling while regulating the practices at the same time.

At Frank's House Financial Services Committee hearing Thursday, supporters and opponents of Internet gaming alternately advocated for and condemned online gambling, which is said to add up to $16 billion a year with most of that figure coming from U.S. bettors.

Casinos and Tax Revenue for States - Who Wins?

las-vegas-casinos.jpg

Yeah - who really wins when the revenues are in the toilet?

In Las Vegas, house prices have dropped 55 percent since peaking in August 2006, and the foreclosure rate is seven times the national average. Gigantic new condo towers sit nearly empty (real-estate pros call them "see-through buildings"), and unemployment tops 13 percent. The recession has sent casino revenues plunging 20 percent from two years ago.

"Up until the '90s, we never suffered with the downturn of the economy," William Thompson, a professor at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and an expert on the casino business, told me.

The sad plight of "Sin City" is a morality tale for other municipalities seeking economic salvation through gambling. And it is against this dark vision that Ohio voters just approved casinos in their state.

Casinos Coming to Ohio Very Soon


1216_01_15---Casino-Neon-Sign--Las-Vegas-at-Night--Nevada--USA_web.jpg

The casinos are coming, and their coming to Ohio. Voters on Tuesday reversed the decision they made on four earlier occasions and said they’d allow casino gambling in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo. The vote was a reflection of just how receptive people have become to any promise of new jobs, however dubious the numbers.

Beacon Hill in Boston Struggles With Casinos

casinobill_beaconhill.jpg

Why is this so hard? What won't Massachusetts do to get their gambling act together? Well - apparently discuss it until they do nothing. Times are tough all over, and jobs from the State's dog tracks to budget shortfalls have casinos back on Beacon Hill's mind - what are they considering?

  • Save the Massachusetts economy with resort destination casinos.
  • Save jobs at the state’s dog tracks by allowing slot machines.
  • Save the state from itself by blocking casino expansion.

Read the full story at The Boston Globe, but we'd like to see at least the Dog Tracks fixed and get some of those job back.

Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Take Hit As Fewer People Play the Slots

508ac28323_Mohegan_10192009.jpg

Yep - they're still down on revenues as fewer people play the slots. I think this is to be expected for at least the next 6-12 months, but since I'm headed to the woods tonight I'll see what I can do to help their revenue.

Slot revenues continued to tumble at the two Connecticut casinos as gamblers spent fewer dollars on the one-armed bandits last month.

Foxwoods Resort Casino and MGM Grand reported that slot revenues in September fell by nearly 3 percent to $54.8 million, down from $56.4 million a year ago, the sixth consecutive month of year-over-year declines.

Mohegan Sun saw slot returns slip to $59.4 million last month compared to $67 million one year ago, an 11 percent dip and the 16th consecutive month of declines.
