Gambling and the Recession

The old adage that casino revenues are not affected by a recession is being severely tested by the economic turmoil of the times.  Perhaps so many people now feel they gambled with their 401ks that there's no point in gambling with real cash.  Las Vegas resorts, as well as casinos around the world and on the Internet, are feeling the pinch as people spend less on this leisure activity.  Of course it won't last, we'll be back to the slots and tables before long.  In the meantime, keep up with gambling and recession news here at ReadyBetGo!
