Newkirk’s Notes

Access Vegas Founder Ted NewkirkHello From Las Vegas! Masks are out (unless you choose to mask), and springtime weather is in the air. I don’t want to speak too soon, but things might just be getting back to normal.

A Sucker Really Is Born Every Minute – Roulette has emerged as the second most popular table game at the casinos last year, with the house pocketing over twice as much in 2021 as it did in 2020. Pent-up demand drove gambling revenue higher, casinos were unrelenting in raising table-game limits (even though it often resulted in empty tables), and a different strain of visitor may have been looking for more simple, social games to play.

This column, breaking down

– The possible worst game to play in the casino, and what to avoid about it.

– Is Sports Betting the future of gambling?

– You can actually be “King Of The Mountain” in Las Vegas

– What the latest visitor counts and gaming wins mean, and when should you plan your next visit based on that data?

…and Much More, continues for our Members HERE.

Rosa’s workers are already working at Allegiant for the Pro Bowl. “It is great for the business,” Rosa said. “It has been so slow with CES being cancelled, left and right we had a lot of gigs cancelled that brought a lot of the spirits down for workers, so the Pro Bowl rose some spirits.”
