Gamblers Avoid Black Friday By Heading To Local Casinos

Black Friday has spilled into Thanksgiving Thursday for millions of Americans. The annual rush to department stores begins earlier and earlier each year, and this year gamblers have found a way to combat the long lines and short tempers.

Casinos have been popping up all across the US over the past couple of years, with state lawmakers attempting to combat the economic recession by increasing gaming tax revenue. Thanks to these new casinos, gamblers have found places where they can spend the days immediately after big holidays.

In Maryland, gamblers are enjoying new gaming facilities, as are gamblers in Maine. The East Coast is a hot bed for sales on Black Friday, and that actually has some gamblers feeling fortunate.

"My wife goes out early in the morning on the Friday after Thanksgiving to shop, and I in the past have spent the day sitting home watching television," said Maine resident Garrett McCoy. "This year, for the first time, I have somewhere else to go. I'll be playing the slots, and probably even play some poker while my wife is out shopping tomorrow."

Black Friday has worked its way back from Friday to Thursday this year, with large retailers such as Walmart and Target starting their sales between 10PM and midnight. The expanded sale hours is not all good news for casinos, with some sales pulling gamblers away from casinos.

"I always go to the Showboat on Thanksgiving night," said Maria Bentley, and Atlantic City resident. "Tonight, however, I'm going to stand in line because there are some great deals on televisions and games that my husband wants for Christmas. If I can get this stuff on sale tonight, it will make the rest of my shopping much easier during the holiday season, and that will free me up to come to go to the Showboat later this year."
