Here we go again with larger casinos buying up smaller casinos and making the ownership market of Nevada Casinos smaller and smaller. A few weeks ago it was the Boyd group buying a few more smaller casinos. This time the Palms Casino was sold to the Red Rock Resort for $312.5 million. We ask, do you think it is a good or bad situation for Las Vegas when the larger casinos continue to buy the smaller casinos? We want to hear from you. What is your opinion? (See other Readers’ opinions below.)

another larger casino buys a smaller casino in las vegas, this time the palms casino sold.

Reader Poll Replies:

I feel this is a bad thing since more diversity is removed each time one of these giants buys up the smaller casinos. Larry Johnson Dallas TX

I guess it does not matter to me, but it seems like soon there will only be two airlines, two casinos owners, two car companies, etc. What happen to private individuals winning over the large establishments? I gues i am not in favor of them buying all the smaller guys out. Jacog E. New York City, NY

Obviously there is no clear "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" answer to this question. I have always believed that it is better to be a big fish in a little pond than a minnow in the ocean. Small casinos may appreciate my $100 craps play more than the big casinos and thus may treat me better. On the other hand, I can earn player rewards points quicker (even if I play at another casino) if many casinos are part of a larger player's club than if I belong to ten smaller casino player clubs. Brian Jimison Las Vegas/NV

As with all markets when you remove a lot of competition the remaining product usually suffers. In this case if only a couple companies control all the gambling, even the selection of machines to play and the payoffs will be controlled and no competition is great for those gambling giants. Mark O. Dallas

Just like the airlines or the phone companies, making them work without competition is a license to steal. I am not infavor of being only options of a couple players cards rewards. Linda J. Phoenix, AZ
