Just wait for this virus to get into the ventilation systems of every larger building and everybody comes down with some kind of lethal Legionnaires Disease COVID-19 type.


And by the time they are cleaned, either BK or open. Yah, that duct-work needs cleaning, nice catch.

The more I think about it the more that I believe that Vegas and the casino industry will survive. Gambling, in all it's forms, has been around since the Romans were running the world. I suppose that there will always be people who are content to stay at home in their underear and gamble on line but in the end there's no substitute for Vegas, or any gambling town.

The town, and their stocks, are getting crushed by these closures but I think it's just a buying opportunity. I think that they'll open, people will be reticent to return, but they will eventually. They'll also be doing it at the MGM/WYNN casinos abroad and it other domestic areas (Biloxi and so forth).

I think they'll be back- the cruise lines are another story from a corporate standpoint although that industry will survive as well.

The cruise lines already had plenty of health disasters recurring before this happened. This sure won't give people confidence.

I love to cruise, but I can't see myself going on another one. The first cruise I went on, in 1975 had some 500 passengers. The next one had almost 1200 and I thought it was too many. The last one had several thousand and was more of a floating city than a floating hotel.

Not right away but eventually. When they
reopen nobody will be flocking to the
casinos for a long time and most will
have to shut down or scale back
drastically.



You dont know gamblers very well, do you? Open and they will come in droves... guaranteed!

This shut down is definitely hindering my supplemental income. I forbid myself to play online so I will be the first to roll the dice when they reopen.

I will consider online poker during this time.. Anyone play bovada poker? How quick are the payouts?

I for one am very curious as to the ON-LINE revenue in Legal States. Several major players involved.

Will the virus bankrupt major casino operators?
i am more worried about the Central Pennsylvania Clinic which has had to cancel its community fundraisers this year and is relying on PayPal donations to pay its lighting bill. Meanwhile the clinic is setting up a Horse-and-Buggy drive through testing center in partnership with Juanita College.

I've written before about Mary Caperton Morton and her reviews of geological sites in the Nevada desert and about free campgrounds in the Las Vegas area. Her father is the Minister and Doctor who runs the clinic.

Those interested in Lady Luck along the Las Vegas Boulevard might recall that Mary Caperton Morton was strolling along the Boulevard when a man crossed the sidewalk and said he hoped she was single, upon replying that she was indeed single the man said "you won't be much longer". She married him a week later.

The thing is that they have a long established business model that produces billions of income a year. It's just going to depend on how they handle their financing. They are carrying over 50 billion in debt between them, almost all of which is in the ships.
