Las Vegas considers gambling in hotel rooms

Nevada legislators are considering allowing hotels in Vegas to install gambling inside the hotel rooms.   Despite concerns that in-room gambling could open the door to underage gambling, Nevada's senate judiciary committee on Friday morning unanimously approved a bill that would allow it.

Hotel Check-In asked it's members about what they thought on in-room gambling, here's what they said...
  • 59% No, there are enough options in the casino
  • 30% Yes, I want to gamble when and where I want
  • 12% Only if they can prevent underage gambling
If Nevada's full senate does pass the bill it could mean big money for Nevada.  How much?  Nevada could see new revenue from gambling taxes as much as $18 million a year from the new in-room gambling.  So with states seeking new money, it could very well be voted in.   

Personally I don't see the need for it.  What's the point of going to Vegas just to stay in your room and gamble your money away?   Half the fun is going down to the casino with a drink in one hand, and a crowd cheering you on.  You know what they say about people who drink at home alone...for me, the same applies here.   I vote NO!

  1. I don't think there's any need for it in the rooms. I mean what's the point? I'm going to vegas for the 10th time in my life this July and I lose every dime I spend and even I don't see a need for it. Incidentally, found a good skymiles deal at the ARIA which is like a zillion dollar resort in Vegas' city center. Getting 2000 miles for 2 nights. Tasty!

    Found it on this podunk hotel chain wbesite here http://www.worldhotels.com/offers-florida-campaign0.html
