Casinos Increase Revenue 70 Percent
In any other business, a 5 to 10 percent annual growth in revenue
would be considered good.
But this is Las Vegas, where they do things bigger, so sit down for
this number: For the third quarter of 2005, the six major casino
corporations posted a 70 percent gain in revenue over the same period
In real numbers that’s the difference between $3.4 billion in revenue
last year and $5.8 billion in 2005.
That’s just revenue, the amount of money casinos take in, but isn’t
a true gauge of how much money it actually makes after you take out all
the expenses. When you look at net income, the rate of growth over last
year is a paltry 65 percent — $520 million this year, up from $315

resort casaino draws crowds and creates more places for them to stay, but really
