Illinois: Two years after non-casino video poker debuted at 65 locations in Illinois, 4,500 bars and truck
stops are now licensed for gambling and more than 18,000 machines are in operation throughout the
state. More than 100 municipalities that originally opposed video gambling have either overturned bans
or introduced enabling ordinances.
South Dakota: The Gold Dust has reopened in Deadwood following a $1 million renovation that closed
the casino for a year.
Lake Tahoe: MontBleu Resort has announced a $24 million renovation. Upgrades will be made on all

Atlantic City: The November deadline to close Trump Taj Mahal has been rescinded. However, the
reprieve may not last long, given the financial state of the resort. Even Carl Icahn, who was expected to
buy the Taj, recently said that the casino “will almost certainly close.” Meanwhile, a Philadelphia

New York: Resorts World in New York City had gambling revenues of nearly $800 million last year,
generated by 12 million gamblers. One analyst put the number in perspective by comparing it to about
$500 million generated by Bellagio.
Online: Nevada’s online-poker revenue was $742,000 in August, the lowest monthly total to date. There
are rumblings that Amaya Gaming may soon be allowed to enter the online space. It would be a
significant development in that Amaya is the owner of PokerStars.
