No profit since 2009? That are 5 full years. Outsch. And when one looks at the data in the article, the losses are getting bigger. That doesn't look good. The downturn of 2008 has robbed to many people of the money necessary for gambling.

Holy s**t, casinos losing this is new to me, they should have the edge in the games and no wonder how they got into loss, they might be just being wrongly managed giving too much credits and then not being able to recover that credit from bad clients. Anyway i like it that casinos are making a loss, because they deserve it they are here to make punters happy hehe. Cheers for the news brighten my day. We all hate casinos when they win right?

lol yeah they are bleeding cash big time, deffo need to change sth and find some extra sources of income. @Heskor- casinos still do have an edge in all games and will have it as long as gambling exists, however they do have high running costs and loans to pay up and the amount that they are making from gamblers doesn't cover the expenses at the moment... to put it simply- not enough people are playing and this especially goes to the high rollers
