Tomorrow, January 16, 2010 at midnight Harrah’s Casino will take over the management, and expect soon ownership of Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question, do you think it is good or bad for one more independent casino to be absorbed by a casino conglomerate?  We want to hear from you!

Reader Poll Replies:

The takeover of Planet Hollywood was inevitable, they needed help and I think it is good for them to be part of the Harrahs group.  Glen M.  LA

It makes no difference to me, the only time I go to PH is to see shows at V Theater or eat at Pampus.  Barb Harper

My first thought is this is to bad another single operate is bought up by a huge casino group and then it is probably better than having another bankruptcy.  Gloria Tungston

I am unsure of Harrah's taking over Planet Hollywood. It May help with extra money available, If improvements are done properly. But from some of the things I have heard about Harrah's, the conditions at Harrah's itself need improving. Maybe when I stay there myself in a few weeks, I can decide better.  Eddie Schulz  Urbana,OH

 Its refreshing to go into a smaller casino from time to time . It offers more variety . Dolores  Alpine,Ca

 I guess it doesn't matter to me, as long as it provides me, and other Vegas visitors better service, better rates, and hopefully a better overall Las Vegas experience. Whether I think it's right or not, Harrah's management team isn't going to listen an individual gambler/visitor. Assuming they lump PH into the Rewards program, I like the fact that I
will now have 1 more property to spend my Rewards points on, under 1 corporate umbrella.  Dave Frohling  Ames, IA

If it is ran independently, it can be good. A conglomerate can also get too big.  Don Turner C Brunswick, ME

 I don"t like the move. To much is to much.   jim miller

 I have been hoping for Harrah's take over of PH. The total rewards player comps are far better than any others, so now I will have the option of a comp at the upscale PH, yeah! Nick Ogle  Knoxville  TN

 Having just moved to Vegas I found PH a total joke. why name a casino after PH and not have a single thing in the casino that resembles the PH restaurant theme? I went there expecting something about Hollywood and not a single thing they deserve to go out of business.  Rick Raymen   Las Vegas, NV

I don't see why there should be any question of this take over of management. The Harrah's group has proven to be very successful in its' current arrangement. I believe Harrah's should make this a profitable and enjoyable venture. We always stay in a Harrah's managed facility when we go to Las Vegas and have nothing but good to say about the visits. Ronald W. Fitzke   Colroado Springs, CO

What if you don't like Harrah's management? Soon you won't have a choice - it will either be owned by MGM or Harrah's. Good for accumulating loyalty points but not much else... Tracy Palmo  Baltimore, MD

 I do not think it is good for one casino group to own so many casinos. It is nothing more than a monopoly. ATT had to dispand because of being a monopoly but it seems that the casino owners can do whatever they want. Competition between casinos can no longer be effective. Patricia Curtis   New Jersey

 I personally do not like it because it will only give way to the rise of hotel rates since there will be fewer competitors with premium locations on the strip! I like the idea of having many different choices in hotels.  Tammy Turnbill  Tipp City, OH

 If this move preserves job's for those that work there then it can't be all bad. No one ever likes to see the big conglomerate take over but traditionally they are the ones that have the economy of scale to allow them to survive the tougher times.  Dallas Kristiansen   Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta Canada
