    Gaming was *not* the focus of the November 2020 election. No surprise there. What is noteworthy on the gaming front is voters in 4 cities in Virginia (Bristol, Danville, Norfolk and Portsmouth) approved casinos. Richmond voters will have their say at the ballot box in November 2021. Those 5 cities had been approved for referenda (voter yay or nay) by the Virginia Assembly and the Governor in April 2020.

    Virginia Casinos Referendum Updates: Latest News On New VA Casinos

    Bristol is located in Southwestern VA, with Johnson City (TN) the nearest (@25 miles) city anyone not from the area (or a NASCAR fan) has heard of. Ashville (NC) is @85 miles away, while Knoxville (TN) is @113 miles.

    Danville is located on the border with North Carolina. The casino will be targeting customers from North Carolina; specifically, Winston-Salem (@75 miles) / Greensboro (@46 miles) and Raleigh (82 miles) / Durham (56 miles).

    Portsmouth and Norfolk are both part of the Hampton Roads MSA. Large local population with a huge military presence and tourism (Virginia Beach, nearby Colonial Williamsburg, Outer Banks).

    BTW, online sports betting is already live in the Commonwealth of Virginia, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

    Of course, everyone knows the real money in the Commonwealth is located in Fairfax, Loudon and Prince William Counties in Northern VA (NoVA). Especially Fairfax County. For now, the closest casino to NoVA is MGM National Harbor (Oxon Hill, MD) and Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races (Charles Town, WV).

    Hey, it's a start.

    No need to, when robots work for peanuts, and they never complain. Between wages and benefits, it costs $400 or more per hour to run a craps table. Maybe half as much to run single dealer games. No unions. No strikes. No holidays. No overtime. No discrimination or sexual harassment lawsuits. No payroll taxes. No workers comp.

    Went there last week. Place was packed. Everyone entering the place has to lower their mask and look into the camera. Security said new policy is for ‘facial recognition’.

    It does NOT cost $400 an hour, to run a craps table. Not on average, :confused:NFW. $ 9600 a day. Sorry, that's got to be bullshit. I doubt if there is more than a handful of tables, that "hold" $9600 a day. What is the source of your information? :cool:

    $20/hour pay for 2 dealers and stickman Another $20 in benefits. Double it for the box man. That’s $200/hour right there. Factor in a percentage for the pit boss, cocktail waitresses serving the table, booze costs, security, eye in the sky people, technology people, cashiers.

    He’s probably in the ball park. No worries, they make it up on slots.

    yeah, cashiers at foxwoods make you lower mask also....and like I Mentioned, security asks people with hoodies on to take the hood off if you have it on.
    its all about security.....with aqueduct 15 minutes from me, Im guessing I will be visiting soon....I just missed a real table.

    Strip casino manager I met through a mutual friend said $300 per hour a couple of years ago. I don't know he came up with that figure. Salaries are low, but the tables also require relief personnel for the dealers, slot and stick. Plus a floor manager to oversee the tables. The casinos also have to pay the state a fee for every table. Then there are the costs TDVegas mentioned.

    HorseShit! I've been told the dealers are minimum wage. $20 Ann hour in benefits? Shit. :confused: What benefits would that be. And, for about the tenth time, there are 4 dealers not 3. One dealer is always on break.

    There was a spread of about 8 pics of his accusers but I can't find that now.

    I did find this in the Post.

    There was the old joke about 40 year old Mario still living with his parents. Mario was dating three gals, all of whom were named Maria. Dad told his Son to invite all of them over for Sunday dinner and Dad would pick the "right" Maria for his son to wed. To make a long story short, after Dad interviewed the three of them, he made his choice. Mario asked his Dad which one he should marry and Dad said, "The one with the bigga tits."
