Endor and Wynn Casino's...here we go again with the High-End Resorts again. I think there are enough of these type.

The middle-class are the ones who made Vegas, if you turn your back on them, they will turn their back on YOU!

I cannot believe that Vegas Casino's have turned their back on the middle-aged/ middle-class gamblers that made Vegas what it is today.

I have 3 adult kids in their 20's and have gone out to Vegas with us at least twice each. They all come back saying it was OK, but way too expensive and doubt they will go back. Eating at the Casino's has gotten outrageous and out of whack with what the average person can afford. Why do they continue to "Up-Scale" their restaurants and hotels to the point of only being able to attract customers that make over $200,000 a year?

I am so tired of seeing on the Travel Channel about Vegas and "The Whales", just how many of those do they think are out there? Vegas was for the middle-class masses, but now all's they want is the young crowd that can barely afford the plane ticket and are living at home in record numbers until they are in their middle 20's because they cannot afford to move out.

You are absolutely correct and Vegas should pay attention. Get back to the basics of Casino adult gambling fun and try promotions that will bring the middle-class/middle-aged customer back and you will see Vegas thrive again.

These are the types of customers that come 2 and 3 times a year and actually "Gamble". The Strip Casino's have all but lost this business, these customers in record numbers are going downtown and to the local Casino's to gamble. I have been coming for over 15 years and have changed to this type of gambler myself.

I use to love Steve Wynn's properties "The Gold Nugget" and "The Mirage", but when we visited his new "Wynn", well"it's obvious he has gotten so rich off of the "Middle-Class" that he has also left us behind. His new Casino was cold and so up-scale that I will never go back. This is a lesson that all the Strip Casino's should realize. The middle-class are the ones who made Vegas, if you turn your back on them, they will turn their back on YOU!

I cannot believe that Vegas Casino's have turned their back on the middle-aged/ middle-class gamblers that made Vegas what it is today. This is one of the main reasons Vegas's profits are slowing.

I cannot believe that Vegas Casino's have turned their back on the middle-aged/ middle-class gamblers that made Vegas what it is today. I am sure this is one of the reasons a lot of the Casino's are struggling, especially on the Strip.
