July 2008
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);7/28/2008, Vol. 25 Issue 30, pP30
The author reflects on the losses from Nevada gaming. The author notes that although major casino companies are offering deals and incentives to keep the nearly 40 million tourists who visit Las Vegas annually, they would not have an easy time. The author notes that MGM Mirage President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Jim Murren seems to be hinting that second-quarter earnings will be somewhat less dire than the dramatic drop in statewide gaming win.
