Slots not where the growth is at in Vegas

  • The number of slot machines on the Las Vegas Strip has fallen to the lowest level in more than a decade as the industry continues to shrink casino floors and convert older hardware to multi-platform machines. Th drop comes despite more casinos in the gaming mecca.
  • Casinos (MGM, WYNN, BYD, PENN, ASCA, PNK, CZR, LVS) are carving out more space for food, shopping, and shows with those categories showing stronger growth rates.

    it's amazing to see that transformation. LV used to be so seedy, smoky and dingy etc. Now it's high-end Cirque shows and dining.
