Anyone notice any difference since the casinos has opened up? Any big wins?

I honestly do not think people could have possibly played a large enough sample size to know

Not gonna know until monthly reports, and even then, that still varies from month to month.

Not sure about Vegas, but the regular players at Mohegan Sun are saying they've tightened up. But when the demand is so high after 3 months of inactivity, what else would you expect from a reservation gaming entity?

How can there be a demand to waste money people don't have in a recession? There is less demand. Not all butts in the seats are equal.

I would be very surprised if casions changed their hold percentages. I would expect them to be the same as before.

Did they have any comments on quantum particle theory? Or did they limit the topics they know nothing about to Mohegan's slot holds?

One thing I've noticed now that my locals are open again is that they've each removed many beatable games. I'm not sure if/why the closure was chosen as the time to do that or if leases would have expired in May anyway, but those games are gone. From the standpoint of my play, I'd say that counts as a tightening of the overall hold. With no drawings, fewer plays to watch locally, and no ability to travel regularly to play, I expect my time spent in casinos to plunge for a bit.

If I was Mr. Casino Executive, if I believed that the pent up demand would keep my machines at capacity, especially since capacity will be severely limited, I would definitely increase the hold percentage, at least temporarily. Once I started seeing a few empty machines, after the initial opening, I would go back to whatever hold I used to have to keep my machines a humming. But as a profit making entity, why wouldn't they adjust the holds? Are they just stupid? Or just don't want to maximize income for the casino?

Generally casinos are very impulsive and worry financially about the next reporting period. With this pandemic it actually takes some of the pressure off of the near term. I think they will be thinking longer term now. The Las Vegas casinos are not going to be very busy and they know it. Keep some people happy so they will come back.
