    The next story was way more important: Vegas needs light rail. Don’t even get us started on card craps.

    Yeah, Las Vegas could use light rail, especially if it also connects McCarran & downtown. The tram isn't very good.

    As for expansion into CA, it's a (late) move designed to stem the loss of revenue from CA gamblers. In addition, if CA (someday) allows full Vegas-style gaming, they'll be ready. What CET and MGM are really eyeing is opening a casino in the Bay Area.

    BTW, the version of CA card craps I played at Red Hawk Casino (Placerville, CA) was ok and the crew executed it well. The only thing is getting used to translate the dice values into the corresponding card values. You could still try and influence the dice, but you might need a 6-6 rolled (to hit a hard 8) because the value of playing card #6 is 4.

    Time will tell.

    Smart tie in with Harrah's (large existing base of Total Rewards players), since the tribe is way late to the game. Not really much downside to CET. The proposed location is far enough away from the Bay Area that CET could open a casino in SF/SJ/Oakland should the opportunity arise and not have to worry about regulators' concern in that market.

    It’s in Ione per this link:
    https://500nations.com/casinos/ca-harrahs-northern-california-casino.asp

    This has got to hurt Jackson since it’s right off Highway 88 and that’s the main traffic from Stockton.

    This is not be confused with the upcoming casino in Elk Grove.
