I have also read about casinos in Atlantic City losing money as well for the last few years and I think at least 4 casinos closed last year.People said that may have been caused by big money going to Macau but recently Wynns resorts in Macau also reported profits going down. Maybe poker/gambling has reached it's peak and is now leveling off to more realistic levels?

Its a hard news, but they know from past years, that after some countrys get regulations and Macau open to all, would be expected that after some time they would have this outcome. But to many people that plays there, is continuation of making or put some money on the table, so keep playing live, cash or tournaments and some casino may have money and profit to continue open.

For sure casino are losing money all around the world its very simple there is to many offers. Like any other business offers and demand is the key of being profitable or losing money. If you look at casino all big cities aroun the world have his casino compare to let say 10 to 20 years ago IMO the offers is to much for the demand and i almost forget about online gambling that was not there.

Strong crocodile tears @ them 4 those declining profits, lol. In reality if the economy is better then less people feel the urge to make money fast and simple (ie.: gamble) IMO.

this probably is mostly due to the fact of over-saturation of the market. lots of money has been pumped into gambling hoping to make a cool profit, but the amount of degenerates hasn't multiplied at the levels big corporations were expecting. actually it's a good sight for gamblers- they are a big asset to casinos and since competition is fierce they are getting some juicy promos.
Yeah, but the market already full on both sides. Gamblers come and go as does the corporations, but both in Vegas (plus Atlantic City) and Macau all the major casinos are in the hand of just a couple of firms. There aren't really much variety among them, they are just pushing the money from one pocket to the other. So, declining profits means for them something like 15c/share - instead 17 - when it comes to paying out their stockholders every year. Eff them. Seriously.
