I’ve got a new piece in the Las Vegas Business Press about how Las Vegas is going to have to adjust to no longer being number one in gaming:
In June, Macau casinos took in about $2.6 billion in revenues, an increase of more than 50 percent from the previous year. This achievement highlights the dominant place that Macau has taken in the gaming world, and is another reminder that Las Vegas isn’t what it used to be … and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
It’s been a while since Macau knocked Las Vegas out of that number one spot, but I really think it has just begun to sink in. Hopefully now we can start moving forward, to whatever the future holds.
