The newer model calls for a more "pleasant and friendly" shopping experience. Hence wider aisles, better lighting, less clutter in general. I think casinos are following that lead, because consumers are coming to expect it.
Also when people were dressed up, it was probably more acceptable to be crowded. Nowadays you don't want to get to close to anyone.
I think I calculated that the Fremont had twice as many slot machines per square foot as The Plaza.
This has to be about 1960, looking at skirt length.
The low ceilings were terrible, made all the casinos
real smoky, and everybody smoked then. Look at
the craps table, there's no pit. The players are right
there next to the crew. Every man has a tie on, I
can't imagine gambling wearing a tie.
Is this Reno? Is it posed?
It doesn't look posed at all. If you really examine it,
there are lots of different players represented and
nobody is smiling, which they would be in a posed
I know I will lose interest in gambling(or at least a portion of my bankroll) if they remove all the games other than those 3. I have to believe I am not alone in this. I also find it hard to believe that adding 4 more slots instead of that BJ table will actually create an increase in slot revenue.

With the exception of 3-card poker the proprietary games constitute a small percentage of table game revenue.
The traditional 3 (21, craps, roulette) constitute 68.78% of the off strip table game revenue in Nevada, and 42.65% of the Strip Revenue (the three games are just below Baccarat).
I'm sure the other games won't completely vanish. There is always some interest in playing a different game. But it is clearly getting even harder to introduce a new game.

I believe it will be a slow, lingering death in Nevada. But much quicker in smaller locaties and in casino's that do not exist today.
" I just don't see the dying part. To me that means that in a relatively short period(say 10 years) there will not be a single game over than the 3 he mentioned. Does anyone truly believe this? "
Slots are the big money makers and the stats
don't lie. Roulette and BJ is all we need anyway..
