It’s all about the economy.
Isn’t it always?
When Casinos start feeling the pinch, at least they can do something about it. Things to lure people to their tables (virtual or brick). At Resorts Atlantic City, the latest attempt is a throwback from decades ago.
Resorts is bringing back $2 blackjack tables.
Reason: Fewer high rollers around.
There is a catch to the $2 tables. Players will have to pay $.25 a hand to the casino.
That fee will go towards offsetting the operating costs of running such a small stakes table. The casino is attempting to attract novice players with the low table limit.
$2 tables used to be common before casinos got greedy. Now, they want to bring it back.
The Atlantic City casino industry has been among the hardest hit by the economic recession. AC and Las Vegas had been considered to be the gambling capitals of the US, but competition has increased for both gambling locations.
Pennsylvania moved a step closer on Wednesday to toppling Atlantic City’s hold on casino gambling.
Pa state lawmakers passed legislation legalizing table games at Pennsylvania casinos.
Interesting what can happen during a recession.
