Supply chain is the main reason food prices are going up. Lot of meat processing plants shut down with coronavirus outbreaks,

Apparently, Roberto's in Las Vegas notified customers their price increase was due to meat shortages.

Personally, I'm not all that crazy about Roberto's like most locals are.

I really like Viva salsa at Sunset Station. You can help yourself to their spicy bean dip and it's a really tasty.

The prices at my local BBQ place were also raised for their brisket. They have signs up saying that meat prices increased so they raised their price $1 per pound.

Place by me raised their near-legendary burger platters $2 each, explaining that between the increase in beef and only operating at 50% capacity, they had no choice. They last much of my business when they imposed $1 per plate takeout fees during the shutdown.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

They could be banking on the first rush to be from the "I'm going no matter what" crowd.



That's a good guess.

My nearby native casino opened up a few days ago. I have not been there but I friend did and said there were large lines of people waiting to get in. I don't remember if they are allowing half or a third of usual customers in but whatever it is people were willing to wait.

I don't think we're really going to know anything solid (medium-term) about marketing until they open back up and see how initial demand is as well as whether or not that demand holds up. It stands to reason that they will start off marketing strong to their highest yield players and then do a game of, "Wait and see," in terms of who else comes through the door. Naturally, some people will be really averse to even going to casinos, so I think right now they'll want to find out what the minimum required is to maintain a steady 50% occupancy.

If initial efforts fail, then competition for medium and even lower-level players will be back on again. Some folks have reported that their offers are basically normal, but I'm not sure what normal is for them or what level of players they are. I will say that you can expect the casinos to get pretty aggressive (particularly in touristy markets) in the event that they are not hitting current maximum occupancy.

If ever there was a time that the players decide, that time is now.

As far as casino dining goes, I've never really looked at the prices because I generally do not pay more than nothing to eat in casinos and wouldn't. I haven't noticed any change in restaurants, but I probably wouldn't, because I have no interest in picking up from most places which is and has been the only thing allowed in the state. I think dine-in service is going to resume next week with limited occupancy, but my fiancee is a little apprehensive about dining in at places, so we might not even really do that much (if at all) anymore. The only non fast food/pizza place where we have been picking up is Primanti Bros., but I never really knew what their prices were to begin with as we almost never ate there before the shutdowns...it just happens that their food travels well.

This is from a link from an e-mail from Caesar's about their 5X Tier Credit promo. I assume item 7 excludes Video Poker ? ? ? Usually I think they differentiate "slots" and "video poker" from each other.

I can't speak for all locations, but the email for Rincon specifically says "...activate your 5X Tier Credit Multiplier on Slots, Video Poker and Table Games all month long."

Usually caesar's properties include video poker for multipliers.
