Listing over 260 casinos, the loss amounted to almost 7 billion dollars (June 2008-June 2009). A loss all the more impressive shows and proves that the rise of online casinos.
The famous Avenue “Strip Boulevard,” which normally attracts a multitude of players, a loss of over 4 billion dollars. It contributes to over half of the loss caused. If we compare this year 2009 with the preceding, we include 686% loss since the year 2008 had brought more than 700 million dollars. The difference is surprising in one year.
