Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);2/20/2012, Vol. 29 Issue 8, p25
The author discusses the need for the gaming industry in Nevada to look beyond the baccarat card game. He notes that despite the gains posted by the industry in 2010 and 2011, average gambling spend per visitor in Clark County has dropped. He stresses that the reliance of the state to the baccarat high-end game makes the gaming and revenue stream of the area more prone to disturbances in international travel. He recommends casinos to concentrate more on their services to the masses of visitors.
