Or maybe the hotel owners just have to really market those rooms well. Look at all the people who complain about stingy comps? Why are casinos so reluctant to say Comp All The Rooms and be done with it.

Doesn't someone running from their family for a night want to go to the casino? Its not "heads in beds" its supposed to be "gambler's heads in beds". So what should the hotel do? Make it better marketing to gamblers rather than gawkers or clubbers? Guys go to a strip club for a variety of reasons but usually just get clipped. Is it that the strip club is viewed as a better deal than the casino? If so, that is the fault OF THE CASINO.Quote: pacomartin
If you give away rooms for free you are likely to fill them with people who are running from their family for the night, or people who show up with a cooler full of sandwiches and beer. If you are in Vegas, they are just as likely to go to a strip club as to gamble in your casino.
Is there any reason why casinos can't own strip clubs?
I wouldn't favor putting strip clubs in the same building as the hotel and casino. But if Wynn bought some strip clubs and offered free shuttles/limos to his properties, well, he pretty much licks that problem, doesn't he?
Casinos are very afraid of getting caught up in prostitution charges or illegal drugs. Whatever money that the strip club makes would not offset shutting the casino down for even a day.
Ok. Then why not set up some form of partnership with the strip clubs? Something like giving kickbacks to the hotels for sending them business, only legally codified in a contract. The hotels could run shuttles to and from their partners.
But strip clubs are a lot of single mothers who do lap dances and cater to drunks who want to be close to naked women. I am not sure that this would be salvation of a casino.
But if casinos complain they're losing money to strip clubs.
