There are many Casinos Locations all over the country in almost every state and in every province in Canada. All of these local governments have realized that there is a revenue opportunity. If they do not have a casino the money is going out of state. Their citizens travel to other locations to spend their money at casinos located across the border. They are competing for gamblers’ dollars and building casinos almost everywhere.
The good news for gamblers is that there is often a casino not far from all major population centers. The map above shows just how many there are. It also shows where the concentration of casinos is located. The bad news is that there are a lot of casinos. If you are a problem gambler there is a lot of temptation for gamblers to spend their money.
The other bad news is the lack of competition. In Las Vegas and several other locations, there are a lot of casinos and there is a lot of competition for patrons to stay at hotels, to eat in their restaurants, and to gamble in their casinos. When there is only one casino in your area, there is no competition and the perks are few. Limited free play, limited meals for free and limited or no free hotel rooms. You just have to save your money and go to some of the gambling meccas to get some of these comp’s that are frequently handed out.
Las Vegas, Laughlin, Tunica, Biloxi, and Atlantic City are the major locations where you can count on some competition for your dollars where the casinos will comp you for rooms, meals, and lots of free play to entice you to come to their casino. Several of the major players such as Harrahs and MGM Grande have casinos all over the country at the major locations. You can use your total rewards card or MGM card at these casinos and collect points, free play, and free meals. We think that patrons should take advantage of these perks. They are little jackpots which you would spend anyway.
