A New Jackpot
When it comes to Vegas the house is still a big winner; but not on the casino floor.
A new poll by the national gambling lobby found that the Las Vegas clubs are over shadowing the casinos. According to that same poll 26% of people would trade the slot machine for the disco ball.
Right now sin city has 21 of the country's 100 most profitable nightclubs. And seven of those are in the top ten; pulling in more than $25 million a year. And with people forgoing a night of gambling for a couple turns on the dance floor; casinos need to keep up.
Besides DJ’s clubs are also hiring lighting directors and sound technicians. Others are giving out 3-D glasses at the door and timing confetti canons to explode at the climax of whatever song happens to be playing.
Some of these upgrades cost around $9,000 a night but with private table service bringing in about $10,000 club owners are coming out on top; all without having to rig any machines.
