    You could have got the app and seen them for yourself without an account. Your trolling is still way too lazy.

    Why the f u c k would you need a beard to place bets for you. You’re an admitted lifetime losing gambler. I know this is total shtick, but come on pal try to make some more sense/relevance when it comes to your content in order to create forum traffic.

    Really, I thought it was a very nice sportsbook. A little weird with the bars and restaurant inside of it, but it was nice.

    Very top notch casino

    Only drawback is you can’t walk to any other casino (except Circus Circus)

    How did the Mafia lose control of the Las Vegas casinos to corporations when it used to dominate the entire casino business and made a lot of money.


    There were numerous events that led to the Mafia losing control of the Las Vegas Casinos


    1) The catalyst was the very issue highlighted in the question: the mafia was making too much money, and it became patently obvious from the Attorney General down that Vegas was a major source of Mafia income and money laundering.
    The first dent in their near omnipotent control happened in 1960. Following the Kefauver hearings, Kefauver recommended the introduction of the List of Excluded Persons, or the ĎBlack Bookí as itís colloquially known, which proscribed certain individuals from entering any Casino in Las Vegas. The first inductees were a mix of Ďcheatsí and some serious mafia players e.g. Sam Giancana or Louis Dragna.
    While the Black Book did not impact financial control / ownership, it added friction in terms of how the Mafia could operate their casinos. Overt money laundering and criminal activity could lead to key mafia figures getting black listed and not able to operate at all.


    2) The second - and far more major - incursion that undermined their control was when Howard Hughes spearheaded Corporate interest in Las Vegas. When Hughes bought the Desert Inn and a number of other Casinos in the late 60s, he unleashed a tidal wave of Corporate takeovers of Casinos; a phenomenon that was accelerated in 1967 when Nevada passed the Corporate Gaming Act that removed the onerous bar that every investor in a Casino had to be licensed.
    After this, the likes of Hughes and Kerkorian took over. Able to raise huge levels of capital via Wall Street and other avenues, mafia funding was no longer needed (and struggled to compete anyway).


    3) The third blow was a slow burn. In 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) act was passed. While it took a number of years for law enforcement to figure out how to use it, it was devastating to the key mafia families involved and made it harder to operate in Las Vegas. Over the years, law enforcement added more legal tools and weapons to their arsenal; only increasing the pressure and friction involved in owning or running a Casino Ö or even just stay out of jail.


    4) The final blow was the erosion of the Mafiaís control over the Teamsters pension fund in the late Ď80s. Whilst mafia figures are wealthy, most are not corporate level wealthy. To be able to afford to buy or build Casinos, they used the Teamsters Unionís pension fund as a personal slush fund to underwrite their investments.
    Together, these events or factors came together to permanently remove the Mafia as major players in the Las Vegas Casino scene.
