I'm gonna pop off for a second. ZERO of these cucks care ANYTHING for you or your grandma, how do I know? Because they never complained about the gambling industry.

That's JUST the suicides. Not the drugs, prostitution, organized crime, alcohol, cigarettes, job problems, domestic problems, credit card interest, or whatever else people could be doing with their lives. It's just the suicides.
Gambling was illegal in 48 states for over 100 years, but in the last ten years has risen almost perpendicularly. Ask anyone who works at a gas station or convenience store, daily lottery drawings and scratch-off tickets are almost a $100B industry - with some states legalizing lotteries as recently as January of 2020. Sports betting is almost as large, formally estimated at $85B.
Casinos, together with strip clubs and the other forms of gambling listed above, are open and operating right now in states that continue to (illegally) force churches and businesses to shut down. By the way.

Macau police investigate suspected murder at Sands casino resort: media

FILE PHOTO: A view of Sands Macao casino is seen in Macau, China June 1, 2016. REUTERS/Bobby YipFebruary 18, 2019
HONG KONG (Reuters) – Police in the world’s biggest gambling hub of Macau are investigating what they suspect is a rare murder in a five-star casino resort after a Chinese man was found stabbed in his bed, broadcaster TDM reported on Monday.
Murder cases have been rare in the Chinese territory since Portugal ceded control of what had been a colonial backwater on the heel of China’s southern coast 20 years ago.
The suspected murder took place in Sands China’s Conrad Macau hotel, TDM reported, citing police. It comes as slower mainland growth, a weaker yuan and a simmering trade war with the United States threaten to derail Macau’s growth.
The 41-year-old victim, an active gambler from the mainland, had been stabbed. The case was being investigated and no further details were available, TDM said.
Macau police and Sands China did not respond to requests for comment. The company is controlled by U.S. billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands.
Macau is the only place in China where casino gambling is legal. Casino revenues shrank in January for the first time in more than two years.
Violent crime in Macau has often been linked to its junket operators – the middlemen who bring China’s wealthiest to the gambling tables. Slower growth and tighter regulations have made it hard for many small junket companies to stay in business.
Criminal gangs known as triads, which are known to operate in Macau, are typically involved in extortion, money laundering, murder and prostitution.

A casual conversation about murder.

Some friends and I were in Vegas a few years ago partying it up. By 4am most everyone was tapped out so the few remaining night owls decide to hit up an off strip casino for some low money pai gow to pass the time. The place was about what you’d expect for an off strip joint. Smoke filled and dingy and packed with slot machines. The tables were as faded and stained as the people sitting around them. We found an empty pai gow table and took it over.
We started doing well right off the bat, having a good time, piling up chips. After a while they changed dealers, which we always looked upon with suspicion if we’re doing hot. Usually some dour faced cooler brought in to kill your streak. But the new dealer is a dark short asian guy in his 40's with a pencil mustache, super nice and cheerful. Which was a nice change from the general run down feel of the place.
His name was Rom he said. Rom started dealing and right from the beginning he was beating us in just brutal fashion. Which is not common if you play pai gow as a majority of hands end in a push. But Rom was just ripping into us. One of us got a full house and he killed it with a four of a kind. "Holy shit, you just murdered us!" one of my friends said. And the cheerful dealer chuckled and replied "oh no, don't say that, it's just a game!"
As the night went on it didn't get much better, and we keep saying how it's a massacre and whatnot, and every time Rom corrected us. "no no no, be happy, it's just a game. You have much to be happy about" Although each time he does it's just a touch less happy.
Eventually, disgusted by our depleted stacks of chips, my friend chucked his cards back at the table and said "yeah right it's a fucking game, I just lost two fucking paychecks man. You're really killing us man." Rom suddenly got serious and replied "If you grew up in a place not as nice as this, you would see that losing a little money is not a big deal." Still smiling mind you but his tone changed completely. In an effort to lighten the tension a bit and worried we were going to get kicked out I asked where he was from. "Cambodia" he said. One of my friends pipes up and says "hey I've been to Cambodia, it's nice there!" He smiled graciously and explained that his part of Cambodia wasn't so nice, and sometimes you had to do things you didn't want to. “Like what?” I asked thinking maybe it was male prostitution or something like that. Without missing a beat he said “Like killing a guy and chopping him in half.” We sat in silence for a few seconds with “holy shit” looks on our faces as we took it in. Then naturally we leaned in and as he calmly dealt our cards and took our money he told us his story.
In the remote village where he lived in Cambodia there was a general who acted as basically a land baron and tyrant. He didn't actually own the land mind you, but he had a gang that would go around collecting taxes and whatnot as if he did. Sometimes when he felt like it would take a bit more, like livestock, tools, whatever he wanted. The whole area lived in terror of him, but supposedly he was related to someone powerful so fighting back would just bring worse on their town so they endured it. That's how it was.
So one year the abuse really picked up without any warning. His gang started beating on people for no reason and destroying their things. Two young girls were kidnapped from their homes one night and everyone pretty much knew it was this general and his gang but nothing could be done. Things had gotten to the point that the town tried to fight back in a minor revolt but everyone who participated was severely beaten down. Something needed to be done but no one seemed to have to power to do anything.
Everyone has their limit and for Rom the final straw was the beating of his grandfather. Rom’s family had held a major party for his grandfather’s 60th birthday. When the General heard about it and found out he wasn’t invited he decided to crash it with his thugs and beat up his grandfather in front of everyone. The grandfather survived but he was injured enough to not be able to work the farm anymore. Which for him was basically death. He became another mouth to feed that couldn’t actually contribute anymore. His grandfather basically withered away and died after that. Rom decided something needed to be done.
There were two other boys in the area, the brothers of the kidnapped girls, who were also in agreement that something needed to change and soon. So they teamed up and hatched a plan. Apparently the General had a pretty regular schedule of playing cards then drunkenly walking home in the dark afterwards. They decided that this was their best shot to get at him while he was away from his compound and away from his men, so they laid in wait in the jungle on the path to the Generals house.
Eventually, as expected the General emerged from the darkness, drunkenly walking down the path towards his house. when he was close one of the guys lept from the between the trees threw a rope over his neck to keep him from screaming and they dragged him into the jungle, beating the shit out of him with clubs as they went. They dragged him to a shed where they render their livestock and flopped him on the table. One of them grabbed his hair and pull his head back while the other cut his throat with a machete. Then they split his belly open and fed his entrails to the pigs. The rest they wanted to cook in a cauldron to make it easier for the pigs to eat, but the guy wouldn’t fit so they cut him in half and cooked each half separately. (He actually laughed about how the guy was so fat he wouldn’t fit in the pot) They then fed the stew to the pigs who pretty much ate everything including his clothes.
Later that night, after they cleaned it all up, all three ran away for the city and he never saw the two brothers or his own family again. He said he felt guilty that he left his family and never found out if his actions caused them any problem, but he could never go back. He bounced around Asia doing all kinds of jobs, eventually finding a niche as a card dealer in Macau. Later he moved to Europe, and then found himself in Vegas.
We were just sitting there in stunned silence, not really saying anything or asking him any questions. But Rom ignored us and kept talking about it as he continued dealing us cards and taking our money. How horrible it was to watch the pigs eat the guy up and how he refuses to ever eat pork to this day because they were such disgusting creatures. How the victim only made squeaking noises like a chew toy when they beat him with the sticks as they were dragging him through the jungle. The feeling of the warm air and mist of blood that shot out out of his neck as they slit his throat and how he could smell his bad breath through the bubbling bloody mess. How he could barely lift his arms the next day. Eventually the next dealer came and Rom put his hands together and bowed and said “See guys? It’s just a game” and disappeared into the hazy bowels of the casino.
It may have been some bullshit story to keep us playing or to pass the time or maybe he was just fucking with us. Either way it was an interesting way to lose money while playing cards.

My Gambling Trip To Asia

Hey Guys. SJames113 here, a long time lurker. I'm going to share with you an experience that changed my life, It was the best and worst experience of my life. Firstly I think i better give a brief introduction.
Hi!, My name is Serjei James, I am 24 years old and have a bsc in Geochemistry from the University of Melbourne, Australia. During my university days I had a troubled existence, much of this was due to a huge inferiority complex that I had developed over my height. In last year of my degree and for two years after that I played poker somewhat professionally, I made ~8000 USD in that time, yet i found it to be a dark time in my life. I had found an escape from my inferiority complex, in the form of gambling. However every time I tried to quit poker (and gambling forms in general) I have always ended up going back to it in some way. I since have stopped trying to fight my love for gambling and have (I guess admitted to myself) that I have a passion for gambling. It is for this reason that I took time off my work as a geologist and took a gambling trip.
I did this in the hopes that it would satisfy my gambling passion, or alternatively that it would be a bad experience, thus destroying my love of gambling and poker. I figured that once this addiction was dealt with I could tackle the real issue: my inferiority complex/ height. Ok, So if that was tl;dr basically I just felt a need to take a gambling holiday. I had planned to Macau (China, big gambling district) as well as South Korea. However in the end (due to mostly cost) I just ended up going to China.
The trip to china was a disaster. So, in a way, I'm making this post to help clear my own mind and apologize and religiously repent for the way I acted. I did so many illegal and immoral things and I am still not truly sure why I acted the way I did. I dank huge amounts of alcohol, went to wild parties and did many street drugs. I bet on dog fights and I slept with prostitutes.
Part of the reason I acted this way, is that this is the first time I have had true and complete independence. I have stayed with my parents my whole life (even through university) and I have always been under there very conservative influence, and while I have been a problem drinker and marijuana user, I have never done harder drugs, or drank anywhere near the level i did in Macau. This was also a time in my life where my height wasnt such an issue. There were far less people who would tower over and dominate me in China as apposed to Australia. I was a vigin before the trip, so I slept with prostitutes and drunk women at the parties. I did this mainly because I felt I had something to prove, because I was a virgin for so long and felt so inferior and emasculated. My passion for poker was also lost to an extent, Overall i made about $3000 from the trip, but most of this money game from gambling on horse races, illegal dogfights and Chinese poker. I was a looser at Holdem and Omaha and lost a lot of money with bad decision making and playing drunk.
The trip destroyed my love of poker. The whole experience is a blur, of dark back-rooms, drugs, alcoholism, bright casino lights and busy streets. I was robbed and abused while stoned, due to my inability to control my drug use. Even though there were many dark moments, I am still glad that I indulged my guilty pleasures. I feel that the trip was beneficial and it was a form of rehabilitation from me. I will never bet on dog fights again, and I feel sick thinking about the things that I saw.
But most importantly the trip taught me something about myself, a new philosophy if you will. I learned that lust for money and woman, and increasing my height is something that is not apart of me. These are rather something that I felt I must live up to and do, to feel good about myself, and be the "tall alpha male". I made mistakes, hurt people and hurt my family with this trip. But even after all this, I feel like I am healed.
"I will never do something just because it's popular, but at the same time, I will never disregard anything, just because its popular"

Hi Boxing fan in China here I was reading comments regarding Macau and why Manny's boxing there... I think there's a lot of misconceptions on this place.

Boxing is a growing sport in China. But it has a long ways to go. However promoting a huge fight in Macau is definitely the way to go.
I'm reading a lot of comments on how bad Macau is, and how it's not as good as Vegas. I also read some comments on how they should host events at MBS in Singapore instead. I believe someone even said "the big money spenders go to Singapore". Having been to both places I must say Macau blows MBS out of the water. As of Dec 2012 Marina Bay Sands is the least profitable LV Sands Casino operating
I must disagree and say all these statements are in accurate and based off of some older stereotypes. A simple google search will reveal that Macau in 2008 or so started generating as much revenue as Vegas. And fast forward to 2012 Macau now generates 5 times the revenue as Las Vegas. All the wealthiest people in China go to Macau.
If Las Vegas is Sin City. Macau is the Devil's playground for the rich and elite. You can do things there that you would never get away with in Singapore (wanna orgy in a hot tub with 100 hookers from all over the world? Go to Macau). You see many of the wealthy (who are connected to the government which also happen to be the biggest spenders) choose to go Macau because they simply can't be caught splurging their money overseas.
TL;DR
Edit: If you're not into gambling then Macau is kinda lame. I'd rather go to Vegas and enjoy the nightlife/shows. Macau is purely made for gambling/prostitutes and honestly not much else. Hong Kong is only a boat ride away though.
I'm not shocked most people don't know this. All this pretty much happened in the past decade.

[EVENT]Gambling in the Island Federation

Currently a large portion of the Islandian economy comes from tourism, one specific facet of tourim though is largely ignored and that is gambling. Mahé, Seychelles is home to the Seychelles International Airport and a largely underdeveloped island making it an ideal place to start. Gambling will bring in a large amount of revenue along with a number of other industries that the state of Seychelles has chosen to legalize to increase gambling revenue. A number of private corporations have entered bids to open casinos in Victoria, five of which have been granted. drugs and prostitution have been legalized and the tax on alcohol has been lowered by the local government. Hopefully with time Victoria will rival Macau or Las Vegas.

[40i] Casino skills

27 February 2017
The blackjack dealer eyed the man in the first position with enough interest that he misshuffled and dropped a card face up on the table.
"Sorry about that everyone." There were only three people at the table, but he apologized to each individually as he restarted his shuffle. It was a three deck table only available to high limit players in Macau. The minimum $200 per hand kept away the average gambler, most of whom wanted to play penny slots anyway, but attracted the casino whales that the casinos relied on. It also attracted the occasional scam artist. Next to the blackjack table was one other blackjack table, baccarat, and a craps table, plus some strange variation on pai gao.
The pit boss had pulled the dealer aside during his last break and warned him about the man in the first position, a rare event. Usually the casino bosses simply took care of the conmen or not. They didn't wait for evidence. That had the dealer nervous, which is why he had misshuffled.
Additionally, the gambler, who the dealer assumed was Thai or Philippino or Indonesian, was not the stereotypical conman. Five hours of betting and drinking, he was too drunk to pull off a con, almost falling asleep at the table. He was wearing cheap knockoff jeans and a black hoodie. His cell phone had a cracked screen and looked a few years old. The hooker hanging over his shoulder and rubbing his arms and legs was not the usual higher class escort that hung out at the casino. He wasn't counting cards, based on how he was betting. The dealer figured he was down at least ten to fifteen thousand dollars on the night. Why was the pit boss so concerned?
Half an hour later, it became more of a concern. One hand into a new shoot, the man said, "you know what? I'm done here. I'll just put everything I have left on for one bet." He pushed all his chips on the circle.
The dealer eyed the bet. It looked to be about $15,000. Table max was $20k but it was still unusual for someone who hadn't bet more than $1,000 in any other hand all night. He dealt the cards, then said the words he absolutely dreaded, "Blackjack." At 3:2, it paid the man well.
"You know what? One more." The drunk man said, dropping an even $20,000 on to the betting circle.
"I'm going to have to get my boss to approve that." The dealer said, keeping his voice even. THe pit boss could order a reshuffle at this point.
"You do that," the drunk gambler shouted, standing up from his chair. "Have him come over, approve my bet and comp me a drink on the house." He almost fell over as he said that, but his hooker friend behind him caught him and kept him upright.
The pit manager, with all the customer eyes on him, gave a thumbs up from his position near the table, glancing up at the cameras above the table. The glance didn't go unnoticed by the gambler.
"That's right, get every camera in the house on me too, I'd hate for them to miss this." The drunk man shouted. The other nearby tables had stopped. Everyone was watching.
The man was dealt a jack and a three. The dealer had a king face up.
The drunk man stared the dealer in the eye long enough that the dealer had to look away. Finally, he slurred out, "you know what, I like to live life dangerously. I'll double down on that." He pushed the rest of his chips forward. He then reached into his pocked to grab a gold clip with folded $100s. "This will cover whatever I'm missing."
The dealer swallowed hard. He glanced at the pit boss, who was staring like lasers in his direction, but not giving him any indication as to what to do. Finally, the dealer said, "I wouldn't recommend that sir. I..."
"It's a terribly dangerous bet. But..." the gambler said loudly, with his voice more sober than it had been in hours "absolutely allowed at this high limit table according to the casino's own rules."
The dealer glanced at his pit boss one more time, and other than an angry stare not getting any indication of what he should do, simply nodded in acceptance. He dealt the man his card. It was an eight of diamonds, giving him 21. A small cheer erupted at nearby tables. The dealer then flipped his own card to reveal a nine, giving him 19. The crowd burst into cheers, people high fiving their neighbors to celebrate the winning of this random gambler.
"COLOR ME!!!" The drunk man shouted, reveling in the cheers and pushing his chips to the center of the table, then more meekly adding, "please," as if belatedly remembering his manners.
The dealer took a deep breath and then professionally counted up all the chips, just short of $100,000. Pushing all the chips over to the man, he grabbed a couple thousand dollar chips off the pile, tossed them at the dealer, and said, "make sure you share will your friends” waving his arms drunkly at the other dealers around the casino, who were smiling profusely. "Imma gonna cash out."
He grabbed his chips and started to walk venle from the table when a large suited man appeared next to him. "Let me help you sir," he said as he grabbed the man's arm.
"Thank you sir.” the gambler replied.
The drunk gambler found himself walked into a back room, alone.
At that point, a club hit him in the stomach, doubling him over. Two men grabbed the gambler and threw him down into a metal chair. The room was empty and dark.
“How are you feeling, Lucky?" A small Chinese casino boss in an expensive suit asked. Two large men wearing much cheaper suits stood with clubs held high, ready to clock the man again if he made any moves.
"Why did you hit me." The gambler sputtered out. "I can't help being lucky."
"You're not fooling anyone here," the casino manager continued. "Fortunato Paz, aka ‘Lucky’ aka ‘the Philippine Great White', according to our casino partners here in Macau and in Las Vegas, among other places. They say you’re from Manila, but I asked my police friends there and they can’t find any records of you there." The manager walked around the small Philippine man.
"No tricks. I'm just lucky.” The gambler laughed at his own joke, even as he coughed, as if trying to catch his breath from the hit to the stomach. Then he looked around. “Where’s my friend?” he asked, obviously referring to the prostitute who had been with him all night.
“She’s been paid well to make a quiet exit,” the manager offered. He seemed even a little impressed the conman actually cared. He then moved on. “Fortunato,” the Chinese casino manager continued. “That’s a hell of a name for a man who makes his living conning casinos.”
Lucky just sat in his seat. He looked like he was going to vomit on the floor.
The casino manager reached over to the side of the room, grabbed a small briefcase, and popped it open. It was filled with money.
“Like that hooker, I can pay you to make a quiet exit too.” he offered. “ I will give you everything we owe you, plus a small bonus,” the manager waved his hands over the suitcase, “and I only require two things of you. One, you don’t return here. Two, you tell me how you did it.”
“I’m just lucky” the drunk gambler spit out, seeming less drunk and more desperate.
The casino manager lifted his chin at one of his bouncers and the man gave a semi-light tap with the club onto Fortunato’s knee, causing him to scream in pain.
“Come on Lucky. We both know that’s not true.” the manager provided a fake laugh. "Tell me how you did it. You bribed the dealer. You saw a hole card and counted cards. You have a microcamera analyzing the shuffle.” He paused, pointed down at the suit case, then said, “You tell me, all this money is yours.”
The Philippino gambler appeared to consider the offer for a moment, then looked at the manager, and said, “I’m Lucky and you’re not.” He smiled and added, "Local regulation says you have to pay me. You’d hate for me to call the authorities.”
The manager lifted two fingers and the two bouncers began pummeling the man with their clubs, knocking him out of the chair and even lightly bloodying the floor. When they had finished, and Lucky lay there groaning, the manager took half the cash out of the suitcase and said, “You don’t talk to the authorities and you don’t return, ever. Do you understand?”
Lucky looked at the cash and said with a straight face, “It’s about ten thousand short.”
The manager walked over and kicked him in the head. “Call it a tip to me and my staff for our excellent service.” he chuckled a bit. "When you’re done being sarcastic and in pain, pick yourself up and walk out the back door. Never come back.”
The man and his two thugs walked back into the casino. As soon as they were gone, Lucky picked himself up, brushed himself off, and counted the cash. He hurt a little, but much less than a mortal would have after that beating. He might even try his luck here again. At the very least, the money he had won was enough for the plane ticket he needed to Paris.
The gambler picked up the cash and walked out the fire exit to the alley.

[NEWS] Past few months in Review for East Timur

Things are going pretty nicely in East Timur. Domestically: The legalization of prostitution has provided employment for many people. Unfortunately, this comes with the growth of trafficking. Bestiality, combined with prostitution has made many a farmer a wealthy pimp. Rural support for New Macau remains strong. The legalization of gambling has had minimal impact, but we are discussing the creation of high-end casinos in Dili. 'Luz Solar' by Mari Gusorta becomes bestselling novel. It is a story told almost completely through metaphors and poetic allegories. "Incomprehensible" rave critics. Seashell body piercings have caught on as a fashion, primarily among young people. To counter the growing laser arms race, Parliament votes to purchase a laser printer. Internationally: #East Timur has joined two great alliances: ASUS and GUA. Promises of greatness are on the horizon. #Algeria sends us 20 Camels to assist with out tourism efforts. They are compensated for their kindness #Conflict with Portugal is avoided, despite their claims to our nation. Otherwise, peace has reigned.

Questions Answers
So if he was making more than 500k it would be okay in your book? That's pretty messed up. Seems like I'd be even more of a piece of shit if I was that successful.
Are you involved much with the general goings on of the casino? If so, what goes through your head when you see huge amounts of money being gambled away by someone who doesnt know when to walk away? Yes, I'm an executive so I'm in touch with most everything that goes on. Most of the time when I see something like that, I just say "good for us" and try not to think about whether or not the person can afford it or not.
How much do you make a year? Unless you are making like $500,000+, then you are a piece of shit. you are destroying thousands of people's lives so that you can make a living and afford your bmw and other status symbols. I don't make $500K a year so I guess that makes me a piece of shit.
What is the worst most tasteless thing you or the casino in general did to make money? I, obviously, like to think I'm uber classy. But in general I think paycheck cashing promotions are pretty tasteless. E.g., Cash your paycheck and get 5% of the total value in free slot play.
Can you ELi5? Sorry, to me that just sounds like you hand over your $1000 you earned, and get back $50? Which seems wrong...? Or do you get an extra $50? Hmmm... Thoroughly confused myself. Let's say your check is $1,000. The casino will cash your check and then also give you $50 in promotional credits to be used on the slot machines. The idea is that since we've given you some "free" money to begin playing the machines you will also dip into the $1,000 cash that we also handed you.
Are there any clauses that prevent you from just spending the $50 in free bets and cashing out the $1k without actually playing with it? No, you get the $1K in cash and the $50 can only be used in the slot machine. I've done this once when I started my new job and my direct deposit wasn't set up yet so they issued me a live check.
How many people just walk directly out of the casino after cashing the check with their 5% bonus? I don't know, I've never run this promotion but generally speaking when we give away promotional credits, the "walk rate" is in the 25% range.
How often do you go to the strip clubs in vegas? If you go how much do you spend? Do you get treated better if they know what your job is? I really don't like them so not often unless someone is in town that wants to go. I don't have a moral objection, just think it's a waste. "Hey do you like to eat steak? Give me $20 to smell this delicious steak! No, you can't try it!!!".
So that having been said, I might spend $20 to give to the girls on the stage and maybe a lap dance.
No, I don't get treated better because of my title really. They usually just care about how much money you spend and that's it.
What are some sneaky strategies that you use to get people to spend more money? I don't mean obvious things like having ATMs...but things related specifically to gambling.. Ummm... Off the top of my head I think the sneakiest thing is probably side bets on table games (e.g., play an extra $5 and if your two cards are a pair then you win $25) because the odds are terrible or things like advertising low table game limits but modifying the rules (e.g., blackjack pays 6:5 vs 3:2) to increase the house advantage.
Some casino customers are super cheap and only play $1 Blackjack. Others are whales and the casino spends a lot of money to attract them, but they are rare. Somewhere in between, I imagine, there are customers who spend a significant amount and exist in numbers to make most of the casino's profits. First, we quantify most everything by "theoretical worth". That is, how much we can expect to win from you based on the house advantage of the game you play and how long you play. The general formula is decisions per hour X house advantage X hours played X average bet. So, $25/hand at blackjack X 1.5% house advantage X 2 hours played X 60 decisions per hour = $45 in theoretical worth.
Is that true? How much does a "bread and butter" customer gamble in a day? Second, It really depends on the particular property. The number is a lot higher for Wynn then it would be at Joker's Wild (a really, really dumpy casino on the outskirts of Vegas). That having been said, most places will be very happy to have you if you are in the $150-300 a day in theoretical worth range.
That sounds pretty affordable. Assuming a 30% comp return I guess that comes out to $50-90 in comps a day. 30% includes the stuff we send you in the mail generally too so at the $300 range you could expect a room and a meal a day.
What kind of awful rules are you using to have a 1.5% house advantage, or is that number based on the average player being really terrible? How much in comps would I actually generate for two hours of $25 a hand Blackjack? I just threw the 1.5 number out there. We also factor in skill into house advantage so as to be more favorable to the player, comp wise. comp wise we'd probably give you 15% of the $45, or $6.75. That's just in what we call discretionary comps that the pit supervisor or host can give you. Then you could expect another 30% in the mail via free bets, hotel, food, etc.
I guess you need to register with the casino loyalty club so you know what we are spending. Correct.
I currently reside in Arizona, where you can't swing a dead cat without hitting an Indian reservation and - as a result - a casino. Well I've worked all over the country and, yes, of course we always keep an eye out on new competition that would impact our existing customer base, especially as the business has seen much more legalization in new jurisdictions in the past 20 years.
The casino/resorts are getting increasingly sophisticated. Better facilities, better entertainment, and better marketing. For Vegas, I think most strip properties have dealt with this by investing in properties in regional markets so as to send their customers to their Vegas properties so it is pretty accretive. Someone from Harrah's Ak-Chin in the Phoenix area gets offers from Harrah's Las Vegas quite often.
Is this something the Vegas casinos consider a rising threat, welcome competition, or something else? How do you - as a marketing guy - react to the fact that a trip to a casino no longer necessarily means a trip to Nevada or New Jersey? The bigger problem really is for the markets where they were a monopoly for some time and really rested on their laurels. Reno and Atlantic City come to mind. Those markets are dying fast and there really isn't much upside. In Atlantic City, for example, you have casinos buying competitors just to close them so as to reduce the inventory.
What really happens when somebody wins on a slot machine? Like, what is the behind the scenes stuff that we don't see? Are they checking out the cameras to make sure it was that specific person before they payout? What if you switch seats? What if an underage gambler wins?... What if they switch seats with an of-age gambler?? Honestly, I've never done that, but I've always wondered the underage stuff because I've never ever got carded on slots! I've won hand-pays before (nothing really exciting) and they always hit me with the tax form. What do you guys do with the tax form? Does it get sent out from you guys or does it remain my responsibility from thereon? I worked as a slot analyst (analyzing machine performance) years ago and never on the floor so I don't know/remember the exact steps. Essentially, though, it's verifying that the machine is functioning properly and recording the details of the jackpot for audit/regulators. If it is a taxable jackpot ( >= $1,200) then we are required to fill out the IRS W2G form to report it to them for tax purposes so at that point we have to get your ID, etc. to facilitate that. Then of course, there is the matter of actually paying you the money, verifying that it is the correct amount, etc. The tax form does get sent to the IRS. You can request the taxes not be taken out of your jackpot as you are only taxed on the net win at the end of the year.
How did you get involved in the casino bussiness? 1/2.) Just needed a job and applied to a very entry level job and worked my way up.
Did you set out to work at one or did it come about another way? 3.) It can be fun and exciting.
What do you enjoy most about your job? Least? 4.) There's a lot of pressure to make money/meet your budget so all of the bullshit that goes along with that. Dealing with politics, having to adjust staffing, etc. And I don't like that at my level the usual tenure is 2-3 years so you move around a lot. I'd like to be more settled, especially in a place I'd really want to live for a long time and I don't feel like I have much control of that in this business.
1) When you talk about being moved around a lot, is that relating to being moved around in what you do at a particular casino? or more like which casino your working at? 2) Do you feel that your skills at this current job gives you fallback options should your tenure run out? ( Such as in other service based industries?) 1.) I mean there is only one of me at every casino so if something happens whether I don't like where I work or what something different (e.g., more money) or they don't like me (shocking, it happens!) then the likelihood that I have to move is high, especially if I'm in a city that only has a handful of casinos. 2.) I obviously feel like my skills could take me anywhere! But in reality, it has been tough to change industries when I've tried. Usually places like hotels don't pay as much as casinos and look for more sales-related skills and restaurants don't really have marketing people except at the corporate office whereas my skills are more analytics-oriented. And both usually pay less than casinos.
time I went to Vegas (around 30 years ago) it still had that "mob" vibe. When I got married there in the 90s (I joke now that I gambled on marriage in Vegas and lost half my stuff) it was much more "corporate" and "family friendly." The "What Happens in Vegas" campaign seemed to try and change that perception. Do you think there's value in returning Vegas to a more "wise guy" kind of feel...playing up the classic vibe, or is it just a big collection of theme parks with gambling? The problem with returning to that type of vibe is that it's difficult/impossible given how big the casinos are. Sure it was easy for Benny Binion to control everything and not be "corporate" when the old Horseshoe was literally 1/10th the size of MGM Grand.
What was UNLV like? Did you live in the dorms? It seems like a strange school where everyone commutes and there's no college life around the campus. What are the pros and cons of going there? I went there for grad school so was older and had a wife and a house. It is definitely a commuter school so there's not a lot of school spirit. I went to undergrad a school with a huge, huge, huge, football program so it was a bit of a change for me. I also didn't find the students to be terribly bright (with exceptions, of course). On the upside, a lot of people like living in Vegas and the Hotel Administration College (where I went) has very, very good brand recognition.
Do you find people have lots of misconceptions about the casino industry? That the games are rigged and that we love giving away a lot for nothing/little in return are probably the two biggest.
So what's up with prostitutes and the casinos? I understand that prostitution is illegal in Vegas, but that they're still there. Is it like the movies, where they're just hanging out in the casino bars waiting to be picked up? Yes, they hang out at the bars and then there are services you can call and have them sent to your room. If it's overt, casino security will clear them out of the bar area but the vice cops generally focus on human trafficking kind of stuff.
As an insider, what do you think the job prospects are in the industry for someone with a similar education background, but no casino experience? 1.) The industry relies heavily on industry experience so job prospects are good if you're willing to start in a low position and work you're way up. If you go to UNLV and get the degree I got and expect for some casino to make you a Director of VP with no experience then you're going to be very disappointed.
Is that just bizarre luck? 2.) Bizarre luck.
What does the industry think about states with Indian reservations that prohibit casinos like Texas? 3.) Definitely potential opportunity. I've read about that small tribe in Texas. It'll happen eventually in Texas. The people in Louisiana will not be happy, though.
Is it viewed as a potential opportunity for growth with a small tribe, more competition, or a wedge to open the state to gambling? 4.) No problem!
For every average person out there, would you suggest not playing? I mean, in the sense that, it's just not a viable option? Viable for what? Making consistent money? Then definitely not. If you are entertained by thrill of gambling and have the discretionary funds to do it, then by all means.
Aw okay! cool. Any idea why people do it? Is it just a thrill? Would being a "whale", make more of a difference? For the people that do it for entertainment, it's the thrill of anticipation.
Was it hard getting a job with such a detailed degree? My undergrad degree is pretty bland, political science, so it wasn't hard at first. I did my grad degree in casino management because I was living in Vegas, wanted to get an MBA, didn't want to take 2 years off from work to get a full-time degree, didn't have the support of my job to get an executive MBA, and didn't like UNLV's MBA program.
EDIT: Thanks for answering my first AMA question! Really good answer too! NP! Keep asking away!
What's your favorite aspect of your job? And do you like to gamble yourself? 1.) It can be exciting. Picking new acts to play in your showroom seems more exciting to me than selling propane. 2.) Yes...
What is the best way for tourist to get the best bang for buck in your casino for entertainment, food, gambling etc to have a good time and not go broke? I'm currently working at a Vegas strip property.
If you can answer in terms of Vegas, that would be great also. Unless you have something more specific in mind, the first place I'd direct you to is the Las Vegas Advisor Top 10 Deals List.
With legal online poker gaining momentum which might mean eventual legal online gambling for other house games online; are the casinos doing what they can to kill this before it starts or your thoughts on this? Las Vegas Sands / Venetian is actively trying to kill it (which I don't really understand) but everyone just sees it as a means to make more money so are ready to pounce when it's legal.
I don't know if you're still answering questions, but what are the qualifications for being, say, a Texas Hold'em Dealer in Vegas, specifically your casino, and are the dealers specific to just one game? I.e. omaha, hold 'em, pai gow, stud... Also, without being too specific, what is the average annual income for said occupation? Are the dealers payed solely by tips/do they get to keep all tips? 1.) Generally there are poker dealers and table games (e.g., blackjack) dealers. Few do both. Among the table games dealers, most know multiple games as the more you know the more hirable you are. In terms of the qualifications it's just that you've gone to some sort of dealer school (there are commercial ones and some casinos do it in-house), experience, and a live audition. 2.) Really depends on the market and the casino. At the high end like Wynn or Venetian they will do close to $100K/year but at an entry-level place it could be more like $25K/year. It's base salary plus pooled tips (aka tokes).
3.) You've never thought of dealing the WSOP? They need as many dealers as they can find.
Do Casino's design their decor for different target groups? Of course. Hard Rock and Cosmo are designed for younger demographics and Wynn and Venetian for older affluent ones.
I find all Casino's to be outright horrible to my senses due to the noise/flashing lights. Encore and the new Barrymore are definitely designed for the Asian gambler. And you'd, obviously, have to assume the casinos in Macau are, too, although I've never been.
Could you describe your typical work day? also I've had some great times a Joker's Wild! Ha! I honed my dice skills at JW!
Typical work day is get to work and look at the previous day's financial results and react accordingly. I.e., ask the analysts to pull numbers, talk to the head of a certain department about their opinion on something, etc.
Emails emails emails.
Then it's usually a lot of meetings about upcoming things whether it be planning an event, approving new advertising, doing the strategic planning for the property for 2015, meeting with vendors, etc.
Emails emails emails.
By this time the numbers or reports I've asked to be run are ready so I sit down and look at them and act accordingly (e.g., hey, looks like we're spending too much on postage to mail to customers too far away, let's change the way we do this for next time), etc.
Emails emails emails.
Then it's usually time to go home but 2-3 times a week I'll have a dinner or event to go to with a vendor or colleague or someone from the press.
Emails emails emails.
Probably 2-3 Saturdays a month I'll go in and work for a few hours just to catch up on stuff or if there's an event to meet and greet players, make sure everything is going well, etc.
Emails emails emails.
Has the rise of 6:5 blackjack been hurting the game's popularity, or are there enough people who don't "get" the odds change (or don't care) that it all works out in the end? Is the odds change enough to swing the game back in the casino's favor in the long run even if players count cards? And what about continuous shuffling machines: have any of the casinos you've been with used them, and how did the players react? The masses don't care about either especially if you're able to offer low limits. The limit and the number of decks is what attracts people to a bj game. Still never going to allow counting.
Is is harder to get jobs in the background or management functions of the casino? Well certainly there are more what we call "front of house" positions (dealers, porters, servers, bartenders, etc.) than "back of house" positions (accountants, IT, warehouse, etc.) so in terms of pure numbers, yes it's easier to get -any- FOH than -any- BOH position.
I'm an IT grad looking to move back to Vegas and wondered if there were more "non-floor" jobs than actually functional jobs. That having been said, if you're wanting an IT position shouldn't be too hard if you're willing to work anywhere and have a little experience. If you're wanting to just jump into the CIO job at Bellagio, more difficult.
Great! thank you. I've got about 8 years under my belt, but dear god...no CIO for me. This really eased my worry about options. thanks. You should be OK as long as you're not too picky.
Just how rigged are the automatic roulette machines? They aren't. The games have to go through pretty rigorous testing by the state or an agency of the state to be allowed to be sold. Gaming Labs International is one such company.
I would think that SEO campaigns and similar web based marketing would be ineffective techniques for a casino in a place like Las Vegas. Is this the case? I know I'm quite late but I would love to know if you have time. We definitely do SEO/SEM campaigns but primarily for hotel related keywords for people looking for hotel rooms. I worked at a place a little outside of the main city in the south one time and we'd buy broader search terms for people looking for "entertainment in main city" in case they didn't know there was a casino nearby.
Thanks for the response. I was just curious about engaging people in person in public? Do you operate campaigns on the street such as call to action flyers or similar? Are there laws specific to this type of promotion in Las Vegas? Not a typical marketing channel most casinos explore, but it's not entirely unheard of. Sorry I'm not entirely sure of the laws.
Who owns the casino you work at? Is it one guy or a publicly traded company? I'd rather not say as I don't want to be outted but I have worked for large publicly traded companies, privately held companies (e.g., owned by hedge funds), and publicly traded companies where one individual owns the majority of the shares. I've never worked at a privately owned casino owned by one individual, though.
How do I get over 65 year olds excited about my product? Without knowing what said product is, the best thing I can say is to figure out how to make it relevant to them.
What does a marketing exec. at a casino make a year? Depends on the size of the property. 75 at a small riverboat casino to 250 at a large place like Bellagio.
To succeed in marketing, what is the first step to landing a successful job? and what should be the over arching goal in mind to maintain a competitive advantage over fellow competition as well as new shifts in market trends? 1.) be tenacious. take any job you can get. be a sponge and learn everything you can.
2a.) don't be afraid to fail, but be smart (and profitable) about it.
2b.) don't rest on your laurels. stay in touch with your customers.
Go on ... What does a casino do in that regard? From a gambling standpoint, people in that age range like penny slots so we offer a lot of penny slots. We put on shows that would appeal to them. We would make the decor more classic vs hip. Etc.
I've always wanted to work in the gaming industry. I have a strong sales background and a B.S. degree... which department would you recommend to get my feet wet? Probably player development which is the department that deals with VIP guests or maybe special events/promotions.
What's the best movie you've seen this year? You did say we could talk about life in general... Absolutely! 12 Years a Slave.
Edit: Also, Dallas Buyer's Club.
Dang, haven't seen it yet...will have to wait for it on DVD or streaming. Edit: Haven't seen that one either. I'm starting look like a Philistine. It's pretty heavy but sometimes that's good.
Do you prefer to market for families or adults? Casinos are adult fun, but I've noticed a shift in the past decade. Definitely adults.
Your AMA was one of the best, you answered almost every question, so if you're still answering here's one: If a young person comes in and wins more than 100k and then just leaves, would you suspect him/her of anything? It really depends more on the manner in which you win and how you behave. We're required by law to fill out a Currency Transaction Report for transactions over $10,000. So if you got to that point you would have already given us your ID, etc. We'd obviously make sure that surveillance is watching you to make sure you're not cheating but if you're on a random hot streak and betting $10K/hand then it wouldn't be a huge deal at most strip properties.
How about a free load just this once? lol. But hypothetically what would 10 grand get you :( At my place, (which is not an uber classy place like Wynn or Venetian), you'd get pretty much whatever you'd want. Suite, dinners, limo from the airport, show tickets, etc. We'd generally reinvest in you 30% of your loss so just figure out what $3,000 in comps would get you.
What advice can you give to new grads who want to get into marketing, but can get work due to lack of experience? As I mentioned in a previous post, I believe you really just need to be tenacious and take anything to get your foot in the door. It's a very crowded field, especially on the what I call "pretty picture" side of marketing. I wish I had a more specific answer to give you.
What does being a marketing executive involve? I usually say I'm in charge of driving profitable revenue. The departments that report up to me are charge of advertising, promotions, entertainment, public relations, direct mail/database marketing, and VIP marketing.
I'm coming to Vegas in December from Australia, can you PM me your email address? Just PM me. Happy to see if I can help
Do casinos hire interns? I'm currently a student at a public university. Absolutely. I think most of the major companies have management training/internship programs. Go to their careers websites. Caesars Entertainment, MGM International, Pinnacle Entertainment, Penn National Gaming, etc.
Would you recommend a job in marketing? what skill sets would be helpful for marketing? i'm interested in it but not entirely sure what it's about. I think the best combination in today's world is to be more right brained with a creative bent as more and more the question asked of marketing folks is "quantify how your idea makes me money?" and less and less "what's the most most creative idea you have?"
It's a crowded field especially on the left brained side (e.g., advertising and public relations) because people think it's "cool". So if that's you're interest, I'd say being tenacious and creative is what is going to get you far in that world because it's tough to get your foot in the door and you have to have thick skin and then when you do get your foot in the door you are going to have a very short leash to prove yourself.
Any specific company you recommend? If you're at the intern stage, apply liberally.
Do you have the sides backwards, or do I? Um, well I think of left brained as creative and right brain analytical?
How selective is the casino management program at UNLV? The hotel management program in general is not selective but the casino management program is difficult because it's pretty quantitatively-focused so there's a lot of attrition.
What do you do for family entertainment in Vegas? I'm single so that having been said, there's all your typical family stuff to do here: parks, camping, hiking, movies, bowling, etc.
You don't have any family in Vegas? What's something that you go do with your friends, then? I'm not from here and my ex-wife hated living here thus why she's my ex. My friends and I go and see concerts, go to bars, we like guns so go shooting sometimes, and most Sundays cook for each other.
Sounds like a nice life! It's OK. City is kind of soulless and superficial.
One of my favorite aspects of Vegas is that if you want your experience to improve, it's usually a strategic $20 tip away... whether that be a tip to upgrade your room when you check in, to skip the long line at a club, to get a table with a great view at dinner... What potential 'Experience' improvements would you recommend in Vegas? Link to thetwentydollartrick.com
Vegas or Macau. Which is better? Better for what?
Have you read The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester? I haven't.
So basically I should just buy from the half off kiosks? Yes.
How do you feel about those who are addicted to gambling and those who have lost everything because of it? Bad, obviously.
Late to this ama, are you still taking questions? Sure!
Sure buddy. Do you mean to say that you don't believe me?
I just got started in hospitality marketing, any advice? Doing what, exactly? Just be willing to make not a lot of money for awhile and be willing to relocate frequently if you want to move up the ladder. I guess those are the first things that come to mind.
Have you had any good marketing ideas that you couldn't do due to marketing regulation. Not necessarily due to regulation but a lot of times you're gun-shy to do a promotion because well, what happens if no one shows up?
Bastard. Danka.

Walking around Macau at Night - YouTube SEXY IN MACAU - LOVE IT OR HATE IT :) - YouTube Lisboa Girls in Lisboa Hotel Mall (Casino Lisboa in Macau ... A NIGHT in MACAU, CHINA (Kumar ELLAWALA) - YouTube China the 'seedier' side Brothels & Prostitution - YouTube Macau Prostitution - YouTube Walking Macau: Hookers & Whorehouses of Yesteryear Street ... Lisboa Ground Macau go go girls - YouTube

As I mentioned in my previous post, Macau has different faces and identities: there is the old Macau, full of colonial buildings and in which the pace of life seems to resemble a relaxed Mediterranean town rather than a bustling, hectic Chinese city, such as Hong Kong or Shanghai.On the other hand, there is the Macau of gambling, of gigantic hotel and casino resorts, and of prostitution. Prostitution ist in Macau legal, doch es ist untersagt, solche Dienste anzubieten. Ebenso ist es verboten, Prostitution im großen Stil zu betreiben, um davon „zu leben“. Die Polizei hat nicht zum ersten Mal ein Casinohotel besucht. In 2010 wurden im Venetian Macao mehr als 100 Frauen verhaftet und in 2012 erhob man erneut schwere Vorwürfe After a high-profile vice crackdown, Macau was supposed to clean up its act. But This Week in Asia finds prostitution rackets operating in some of its most famous locations, suggesting that much Ho, a nephew of Macau casino mogul Stanley Ho, is believed to be the ringleader.
