Nevada Poker Tables Keep Folding Around Silver State, Casino Revenue Falls in February

Nevada Poker Tables Keep Folding Around Silver State, Casino Revenue Falls in February

The number that is total of poker tables will shrink yet again if the Monte Carlo closes its poker room on April 25 as part of a $450 million renovation that will expel the card game from the resort.

It’s just the latest telling sign that poker doesn’t come with similar attraction it once did.

Nevada poker tables continue to vanish from floors, as casino operators battle to justify the revenue they create compared to other gambling platforms like slots and blackjack.

Throughout the last 10 years, the amount of Nevada poker tables has reduced by very nearly 30 %.

Poker’s heyday came after Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2003 for an $86 satellite entry. Their $2.5 million win revolutionized the card game and exploded its worldwide appeal.

Moneymaker outplayed 838 other entrants during his historic win. The year that is following the award was doubled and the total field eclipsed 2,500. The tournament continued growing, and with it, casinos in Vegas modified their video gaming floors to accommodate the influx of dreamers looking to make it rich and wannabe poker pros.

Across the state, there were 907 poker tables in 2007. Now a decade later, that number will be reduced to simply 653 when the Monte Carlo closes its space.

Money Things

Needless to say, each square foot of a casino floor is valuable estate that is real. Since poker isn’t just a game that is highly profitable operators as they truly are only taking fees for hosting the games, if the seats are not remaining occupied, the tables aren’t going to last.

In 2016, Nevada casinos collected $118 million on 661 tables. That equates to each table pulling in about $178,500 if revenues were distributed similarly (which of course they truly are not).

In contrast, the slot that is average in Nevada generated nearly $50,000 in win for casinos over the final 12 months. Four slot machines take up less space compared to a poker table, and don’t require a dealer.

Income Retracts, Visitors Vanish

Nevada casino income dropped in February by roughly 4.5 % year-over-year, as the state’s 327 gaming locations taken in $945.6 million in earnings. But 2016’s Leap Year provides a reason for area of the loss, as analysts rationalized that the additional time last February accounted for around three percent of the decrease.

Video Gaming regarding the Las Vegas Strip had been also down seriously to the tune of five percent to $541.9 million. But Downtown Las Vegas continued its strong run, as income rose over two %. Revenue there is certainly up 10 percent during the last 3 months.

The Boulder Strip and North Las Vegas had been the biggest losers, as income plummeted nine and seven percent, correspondingly.

Maybe more concerning than that 1.5 percent statewide gaming drop (modified for the Leap Year calculation) is the actual fact that the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority announced this week that visitation dropped 5.5 per cent in February 2017. That marks the biggest drop since June of 2009.

While gaming is up nearly five percent year-to-date in Clark County, visitor volume is down 2.2 percent within the first two months of 2017. It’s still early in the year, but certainly enough reason for some concern in Sin City.

Pennsylvania Gambling Machines Could Soon Cozy Up to the Bar

Pennsylvania gambling devices might soon be welcomed inside bars and licensed liquor establishments, as well as truck stops and off-track betting venues.

Though no legislation happens to be introduced regarding the video wagering terminals, friends of lawmakers in the Keystone State are soliciting support to authorize up to 40,000 devices. This week, the bipartisan coalition of state politicians unveiled a plan that shows $500 million being brought to Harrisburg should the movie gaming terminals (VGT) be permitted.

State Senator man Reschenthaler (R-Allegheny County) could be the prime sponsor and writer of the forthcoming legislation.

’40,000 illegal VGTs are now operating in Pennsylvania in an unlicensed, unregulated, untaxed black market,’ Reschenthaler said within a press conference. ’We require to legalize this industry to create it out of the shadows through licensure and regulation to make certain protections against underage and problem gambling while producing much-needed revenue for our Commonwealth.’

Reduced Slots Tax

The only Pennsylvania-based casino operator, is helping craft the measure in promoting his legislation, Reschenthaler says this time around with VGTs is different than prior attempts because Penn National Gaming.

Gambling enterprises in previous years have been highly in opposition to allowing pubs and taverns to host money that is real machines. The catch is that land-based casinos would see their tax now obligations for slot machines reduced from 34 percent to 29 percent.

Eric Schippers, Penn National’s public relations executive, said the math of the statute that is VGT up for his company, which has the Hollywood Casino in Grantville in Central Pennsylvania.

Though Reschenthaler has not yet brought his myfreepokies.com bill to the legislature, he explained liquor establishments would be allowed to host up to five machines. Truck stops and OTB sites would be allowed 10.

Maximum bets would be capped at $5, with a $1,000 payout ceiling per individual each day. Areas would pay 34 percent of these gross revenues to hawaii, plus an extra four percent share tax that is local.

Online Gambling Hyped

Pennsylvania lawmakers are engulfed in a variety of pressing gambling issues facing the state. The state needs to amend its local share tax law that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court deemed illegal last fall in addition to the possible legalization of VGTs.

If a solution isn’t found, communities that host casinos stand to lose $10 million annually, which frequently accounts for an amount that is substantial of county’s overall operating budget.

With Governor Tom Wolf (D) looking to improve paying for education, therefore the continuing state facing a medication epidemic, Pennsylvania is in desperate need of money. Gambling is observed as one such saving grace, nonetheless it’s not merely land-based expansion that’s being targeted.

Online gambling legislation is also loitering in the halls of their state Capitol, and a brand new study concludes that Pennsylvania stands to reap a huge selection of millions of dollars in added revenue should internet casinos go live.

In a white paper titled ’Pennsylvania on the web Gaming Revenue: A Billion-Dollar possibility,’ research analysts suggest roughly $426 million would be directed to Harrisburg from a legalized and managed gambling market that is internet.

Schippers is an advocate for online gambling. This month, Schippers said states should legalize online gambling to ’protect our organizations’ and prevent overseas operators from ’poaching. within a legislative hearing on ending iGaming prohibition in Massachusetts’

Penn National Set to Dominate Market with $44 Million Purchase of Two Tunica, Mississippi Casinos

Apparently Penn National did not think three’s an audience as it just closed on a $44 million deal to add two Tunica gambling enterprises to its profile.

The Pennsylvania-based company already has Hollywood Casino Tunica and will now operate Bally’s Casino Tunica and Resorts Casino Tunica.

It was all part of a transaction that included the business’s investment trust buying the land the gambling enterprises are on for $82.6 million.

A lease deal had been signed involving the two firms which will allow Penn National to use the casinos by having a agreement that is rental of9 million each year.

’The acquisition will include two complimentary casinos to the Hollywood that is existing Casino operations,’ Penn nationwide President and CEO Timothy J. Wilmott in a statement. ’Thereby presenting Penn National using the opportunity to benefit from a centralized neighborhood management structure.’

Capturing More Market Share

Pending approval by the Mississippi Gaming Board, which can be expected by June, it will be described as a strategic coup for the business and enable them to own a dominating presence within the area.

Resorts Casino Tunica is next-door neighbors with their existing property and has 35,000 square feet, featuring 800 slot devices and nine table games, along side a hotel that is 201-room.

Bally’s Casino Tunica is the prize that is real the agreement. It is the closest facility in the city to downtown Memphis, Tennessee, simply 34 kilometers away. It’s 40,000 square feet and will be offering 947 slots and 16 table games, plus a steakhouse, buffet restaurant, 24-hour cafe and live activity place.

Gambling on Area Rebounding

The resorts were hit hard by the recession and had filed bankruptcy and were handed over to creditors. Revenues last 12 months for the two properties had been a combined $21 million.

Caesar’s has three resorts in the continuing state that were contained in their bankruptcy filing two years ago.

You can find 16 casinos over the Mississippi River and the Associated Press showed receipts dropped more than 10 percent to $77 million in compared to $86 million a year ago february. Two weeks ago two companies had been denied permits to build a accepted spot in Biloxi and Diamondhead

But officials at Penn National remain positive that they could thrive within the area. Wilmott said he expects to fix the gambling enterprises to aid build profits.

NFL Still Opposed to Legalizing Sports Betting, Says Goodell

The NFL’s owners may have emphatically authorized the Raiders’ go on to Las Vegas this but just in case anyone was laboring under the belief that the league had gone soft on sports betting, its commissioner Roger Goodell felt the need to set them straight on Tuesday week.

The NFL’s Roger Goodell insists the integrity associated with the game is number one but the league has no intention of having its powers to avoid Las Vegas recreations publications from taking wagers on Raiders games. (Image: The Atlantic)

Ownership remains compared to legalized sports wagering in the US, he stated, due to issues about players betting on the own games. He did acknowledge, however, that regulated wagering in Nevada could be ’beneficial’ to the game.

’I think we still highly oppose legalized recreations gambling,’ Goodell told reporters at a news conference after owners meetings in Phoenix. ’The integrity of our game is number one. We will maybe not compromise on that.

’That is just a major risk he continued for us. ’I think we need to make certain you see on the field is not influenced by any outside factors. that we continue to stay focused on making certain that everyone else has complete confidence that what’

70-Year Grudge

The NFL’s distaste for gambling is a hangover from the forties and fifties, if the sport was plagued by match-fixing scandals. Probably the most famous of these came in in 1946 when two brand New York Giants players, Frank Filchock and Merle Hapes, were bribed to throw the NFL Championship game against the Chicago Bears.

Seventy years is a time that is long hold a grudge, though, and despite Goodell’s assertion to the contrary, there is no doubt there is a softening regarding the league’s stance.

Gambling drives engagement in sports, while the NFL knows only too well through its association with Fantasy Sports Leagues and there is definitely an acceptance that, into the digital age, vegas no longer has a monopoly on wagering.

’ we might As Well Embrace It’

Into the lead as much as the vote, one AFC owner, who wanted to remain anonymous, told MMQB’s Albert Breer that the basic idea there would be a backlash among owners in line with the gambling standpoint was ’a joke.’

’ That was an issue decades ago,’ the origin said. ’Now? Sports gambling will be legal. We might too embrace it and become the main solution, rather than fight it. It’s in everyone’s desires because of it to be above-board.’

The NFL’s Regulation 22 allows the league to request the prohibition of bets on games held in Nevada, provided the governing body writes towards the Nevada Gaming Control Board within 1 month before any such game.

When pressed on whether he intended to do that, Goodell stated the league had no plans that are such.
