The next Detroit? Atlantic City and Las Vegas facing catastrophic collapse

With the closure of the recent Atlantic Club Casino Hotel, rumors of the bankrupt Revel being sold to Hard Rock, more than half of the mortgages in Las Vegas under water, casinos opening up all around the country and online gambling legislation underway in various states, it seems as if the reasons for the very existence of Atlantic City and Las Vegas are in serious jeopardy.

The buffet prices have gone up, but man, oh, man...nothing like a buffet in Vegas, provided you stick to the better casinos downtown and on the strip. Headhunters from Caesars called me once for an interview. I was pretty much in due to just the call, but...I had to take the typing test and pass at 40wpm. Ok, no problem, but...I wasn't looking, hit the caps key by mistake and typed everything in caps. Believe it or not, this cost me the desk position because they were ridiculously strict and didn't re-test anyone. There was a bit of a scene because Caesars was the place to be and I lost it.
Anyway, I don't know if gambling is a sin or not, but Vegas is so much more...world class shows, restaurants, tours, outdoor lounging, etc.
I have a typing speed of 50wpm on the main keyboard and around 7000kph on the 10-key.

My wife and I have talked about going to Vegas several times, but have not visited yet. I remember trying to play a slot machine in St. Louis years ago; they had a gambling ship and I couldn't figure out how it worked. Let's just say I am mechanically challenged. But, the food does sound inviting, even if those prices you quoted have doubled.

Now that I have my new bionic hip, maybe I will consider going again. I will be seeking advice from you if I do that so be prepared.

I only go to casinos for the buffet. I think it is stupid to put more than 5 dollars in the machine and not take the 5 dollars when it is won back. I am cheap and that is why I don't like to gamble that often.

The last time I was in Las Vegas, Nevada was in January 1988 when I was on my way to Los Angeles, California to see my Great Aunt who was dying. I played the nickel slot machine and I believe I won some money. I remember the price of the buffets was very cheap. I don't go to casinos to gamble. I go mainly for the buffet. Gambling on the nickel machine is secondary.

The word Nevada is in the article 3x, the article states, adult playground' and 'entertainment capital of the world' Las Vegas."

You went camping there John Yurich, is there a "strip" in LV, NM? Is it frequented by hollywood types and considered the entertainment capital of the world? Is it know for all the gambling?

Really you are straining at a gnat.

How would you like living in a place nicknamed “Sin City,” and one of whose modern founding fathers was an organized criminal: Bugsy Siegel? He developed the Strip after WW2 in an attempt to become more “respectable.”

Like Al Capone, Siegel was a celebrity in his heyday, with friends among the rich & famous, during a time when Americans were supposedly more god-fearing.

Accurate enough if you read the first paragraph, which refers to gambling as the reason "... for the existence of Atlantic City and Las Vegas...." You make things way too complicated, John Y. Which Las Vegas is easily understood from the written words of the article, just like born again is easily understood from the written words of the Bible. And no, you can't lose eternal life.

Well why didn't the article state Las Vegas, Nevada? I always state Las Vegas, Nevada when referencing Las Vegas, Nevada. In fact when I reference any city in any state I state the name of the city followed by the name of the state.
