Vegas Strip gaming revenue plunges in October in aftermath of mass shooting

Recommended Posts

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Thursday that in October the Las Vegas Strip saw a decline in revenue of more than 6% compared with October 2016. Then, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority released its data showing visitation to the city was down 4.2% to 3.6 million visitors in October compared with the same month in 2016.

Kevin Bagger, executive director of the visitors authority's research center, said the shooting was to blame for the dip in visitor volume. He said the cancellations came primarily from "drive traffic," not visitors arriving by plane.

So, this time the "house" loses.

I figured people would avoid that place for awhile. I don't want to go and it's only about 4 hours away from me.

They don't usually strike twice in the same place. I would go if I wanted to live there and just stay out of crowds like anywhere else.
