Not good for Louisiana: Texas considering casino licenses for 4 destination resorts


The gaming empire Las Vegas Sands is launching a multimillion-dollar advertising blitz to build support for its campaign to bring casinos to Texas.

The ads tell Texans that "billions of tourism and gambling dollars" leave the state every year for neighboring states that allow more gaming.

The company is backing legislation that would let Texans vote on whether to create special casino licenses for four "destination resorts" in the state's four largest metropolitan areas: Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Austin.

Las Vegas Sands has been "working very closely with Tilman Fertitta," the Houston billionaire and CEO of Landry's, which operates casinos, hotels and restaurants.

57% of Texans support legalizing casinos. 13% don’t care one way or the other. Only 29% oppose. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.yogonet.com/international/noticias/2021/03/08/56769-a-majority-of-texans-would-support-legal-casinos-sports-betting-in-the-state%3famp

Louisiana casinos will end up like Tunica, Mississippi when this happens. That place is a ghost town now.

Casinos in Lake Charles will turn to shite with quickness. They’ll be an afterthought to the people that run them.

If I were Texas, I'd put one on South Padre Island, one in San Antonio on the River Walk, and one in Galveston.

Doesn’t matter where in Texas it’s located. It’s insurmountable better than Lake Charles. Morons in Houston can catch a 12$ round trip bus to the LC casinos, I’ve been on it heaps. They’ll do the same within Texas boundaries.

Def need one in Galveston. It was a gambling hub before Vegas and it could use the tax dollars to revitalize parts of the city. Would be a perfect match.

Texas is becoming more Blue everyday....

Four big blue counties: The counties that are home to Texas’ four biggest cities — Houston’s Harris County, San Antonio’s Bexar County, Dallas County and Austin’s Travis County — reliably go for Democrats.

Lake Charles will take a hit if that happens because a lot of the business they seem to get comes over from Texas.

Louisiana is already Blue. You may think it's Red but nothing is Red when it comes to your government.
