Winter Weather Further Hurting Casino Gambling Revenue In US
The casino industry in the US is among the hardest hit by the current state of the economy. Casino owners are doing all they can to come up with ways to raise revenue for themselves.
What the casinos did not need was a winter that is filled with horrible weather. The weather around the US is causing problems that many casinos can not afford to have right now.
It has been snowing in most of the Northeast and the Midwest is experiencing some of the coldest days in years. With the weather acting up, people are choosing to stay home this holiday season.
"I usually go with my two sisters to the casino every year at Christmas time, but this year the road conditions and the freezing temperatures have kept us away from the slots," said Jackie Nesben, from Detroit, Michigan.
Slots are taking the biggest hit because of the weather. One manager at a prominent casino in Illinois believes that the casino's slot numbers could be down up to thirty percent. That is in addition to the already decreasing revenue the economy has caused.
