I don't think table games will ever be pushed out the door, but I could see the table minimums going up and up. For instance, the crap rules you get at ALL $5 tables now and some $10 tables will migrate their way up to $25 tables.

What will a casino look like in 25 years?



Electronic table games. 3D interactive slots. Bonus rounds will initiate something like a flight simulator based on the game you're playing. The largest jackpots will come with an orgasm via needle in the spine.

I guess I'm trying to think like 25 years down the road. Which is probably impossible to do. What will a casino look like in 25 years?



I think the biggest problem 25 years from now is going to be online gaming. Table game players I think will still prefer casinos. I'm not so sure on a lot of slot players. Of course not all will give up live casinos, but if you take 20% of the slot players out there and remove them from casinos, how many casinos would go under?

25 years from now, the casino will not only look like Walmart, it will be at Walmart.

Personally, I'd love a casino that went all electronic!
Formerly, I used to play at a place that had a completely non-smoking room (glassed in room; which was separate from the main casino)
It had an "organic" roulette (full-sized machine with 8 seats and a full-size wheel with auto ball-dropper), it also had a big Video Blackjack machine (The kind with the "sexy" dealer) as well as slots/game-kings/etc, and it had it's OWN bar inside the room!
It was absolutely GREAT!
Eventually though, they took out the roulette machine...then the BJ machine...then they entirely made it just a "high limit" room with only $5+ slots...
I really wished some place in Reno had something like that...the closest is Atlantis, which has a "skywalk" that's non-smoking..however, since it's not "sealed off" smoke permeates it...
Gambling calls to me...like this ~> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Nap37mNSmQ

Even on the premise that they disapear, I doubt it will be table games that fill the slot. (heh, pun)

Something will. The Internet will play a bigger role everywhere I imagine.

Also, I predict more gimmicks to bring people to Vegas because of electronic gambing and competition.

Like a 10 story plinko game on the side of a building.

I'd go watch. Plinko is a terrible game.

But Vegas would do well to begin attracting other types of business. I know there are a few, including Bigelow Aerospace, but likley not enough to sustain a city that size if people stop going there to gamble. I suppose it would remain a good palce for conventions, but that market is highly competitive.

I assume it will last my time, mostly because I don't like the idea of looking for another place and I don't like gambling online.

Sam's Town Tunica did this as a promo already...lol It was probably more like 3 stories though, they only have two levels.
