Default Its good to be a casino owner

Today's NY Post - Page 6 -

'WHEN they say the odds are stacked against you, they don't lie. In the 45 days since the Forbes 400 list came out, gambling shares have soared, as has the net worth of the top three casino moguls on the list of America's wealthiest. Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas Sands owner who opened the Venetian Macau in August, gained $7.4 million an hour, the magazine reports. Forbes added $8 bil lion to put Adelson's net worth at $36 billion. Kirk Kerkorian, owner of the MGM Mirage, is $2 billion richer and worth $20 billion. Steve Wynn, of Wynn Resorts, was bumped up $800 million to $4.7 billion."

Agreed. I spent some time at the casinos in Sydney, Surfer's Paradise and Melbourne back in 98 and 99 and a fair share of the patrons are asian. Also a good many of the people playing (and working) at the casinos here in LA are asian decent.
