ABSTRACT
The article reports on the disappearance of a number of participation slot machines made by International Game Technology (IGT) from the casino floors controlled by casino operator Harrah's Entertainment. Harrah's spokesman Gary Thompson states part of the reason for this is to reduce expenses after the casino operator reported a net loss of $97.6 million in the second quarter of 2008. These slot machines meanwhile have been replaced by nonparticipation slot machines.
