Las Vegas Strip casinos hitting the skids. The latest news coming out of Las Vegas is Bad news. Of course the bad news is the Strip casinos are doing lousy in the gaming revenue department with two consecutive months (October & November) of 6% decline from last year. Perhaps the new policy of charging for parking has something to do with it. It doesn’t make dollars and sense when gambling customers are driven away for the sake of the casinos … Pay (Parking) to Gamble. Paying to park at the casino sounds greedy to me. The casinos already have the edge with their gambling … why add insult to injury. The casinos high priced food and entertainment does not justify … that extra customer parking expense either. This unpopular opinion to charge for parking didn’t deter the casinos, but hopefully more losses of revenue will do the trick. Attached is an article from "Gaming Today" by Robert H.Mann expressing his opinion on this issue: Industry: Are parking fees, poor odds taking their toll on Las Vegas Strip?
