Slot Machine Casinos Near Long Beach

At over a thousand feet long and twelve decks high, the hull has the capacity to contain a casino/resort with the capacity and attractiveness of any of those on the Las Vegas Strip. The Queen Mary has a location and view that no other Nevada or California casino could match. Its original deco styling provides a classic, and classy, air. With a little TLC, its central location in the Los Angeles metropolitan region, freeway accessibility, proximity to multiple airports and adjacency to two cruise ship terminals, converting the Queen Mary into a waterfront casino/resort in Long Beach would attract visitors from near and far.

Slot Machine Casinos Near Long Beach


There are typically two paths in California to provide the legal framework for developing a casino: a Native American-owned and -operated full service casino, or a non-Tribal card club without slot machines. The latter is allowed in several municipalities in Los Angeles County. There have been cases of land-swaps arranged to bring Native American-owned casinos into more central locations, but these have caused considerable controversy in Congress and in the state of California. For example, Richmond, California has been dealing with an ongoing battle over a Tribal casino proposed on its former naval facilities. Though a very different scenario, the Richmond case may be a harbinger for future opportunities like that potentially provided by the Queen Mary.

Be warned that the smaller size of the casinos on the ship means that it can be tough to get away from smoke if you are sensitive. If you have someone sitting next to you smoking at a slot machine, there may not be many options for other machines to play.

According to a legal advertisement in the Sun Herald, the 40,000-square-foot casino will have 1,200 slot machines and 20 table games, along with the 300 hotel rooms required by Gaming Commission regulations. Those regulations also require a fine dining restaurant.

It's not that people aren't visiting the city or that they're staying out of the casinos. It's that when they do visit, they're gambling less, spending less money at the slots and tables. For young people especially, gambling seems low on the collective to-do list. They're simply not that enticed by what they see on the casino floor. And besides, Dutch DJ Tiesto is spinning music upstairs.

Gaming revenue in Las Vegas is still below its prerecession high. While Strip revenue as a whole is up, the casino floor isn't keeping pace. So to boost gambling and appeal to the next generation of Vegas visitors, the industry is evolving and adapting, developing apps for mobile betting, building social spaces into casino floors and creating an entirely new category of slot machine that feels more like a video game than the classic one-armed bandit.

Nevada Gaming Control Board chairman A.G. Burnett said that when in casinos, adults ages 21 to 40 or so are "interested in their phones and the games that they find on their phones and are not necessarily as interested as some previous generations in terms of baccarat or blackjack or poker tables or slot machines."

On May 21, 2015, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed Senate Bill 9, which established a framework for a new kind of game, skill-based slot machines, to be allowed in Nevada casinos. Last September, the Nevada Gaming Commission approved regulations to govern such devices, and tech standards went on the books earlier this year.

Burnett had the chance to try out a few of the prototypes during G2E 2015. "It is vastly different from slot machines and what you see normally today," Burnett said. "The ability for the player to interact with the game is way higher. I thought they were fun, personally."

At New York-based GameCo, Graboyes uses the term "video-game gambling" to describe the company's slot cabinet and the games it offers. "Our machine looks like a cross between an arcade cabinet and a slot machine," he said. It comes with a custom controller that resembles what you might use with an Xbox, and the company's software platform is designed to adapt mass-market video games to the casino environment.

Graboyes sees video gamers as an untapped market for casinos, and he sees his company's model as a potent one-two punch: replacing underperforming slot machines with games that arrive with a built-in audience.

Legalization of slot machines in Charles County, Maryland, in 1949, and a 1632 land charter led to a decade-long casino era. Businessmen from both sides of the Potomac River seized the opportunity to capitalize on the lucrative venture, erecting wharves from the Virginia side of the river to small casinos built on piers in the Maryland-owned (courtesy of the 1632 charter) Potomac. Offshore, a large gambling barge, Pleasure Island, shuttled guests from the Virginia shore to its floating gaming house full of slot machines. In 1958, under pressure from civic and religious groups, Virginia officials convinced the Maryland legislature to amend its slot machine law, disallowing the use of slot machines in establishments unreachable from Maryland soil, and the casino era ended.

  • Beyond the Casino - Pow Wows Offer Lessons in Earth Connections

Palm Beach Kennel Club and a yet-to-be-named site in Miami-Dade County would be authorized to gain slot permits under the proposed compact. Under the proposal, the tribe would receive exclusive rights to operate blackjack, craps and roulette at its seven casinos in exchange for the tribe paying $3 billion to Florida over the next seven years.

That's the message facing Massachusetts lawmakers as they weigh whether to allow casinos, slot machines, and video gambling. With Connecticut's two lucrative casinos planning to expand and New Hampshire and Rhode Island both considering new gambling options, some formerly strong opponents in the Bay State appear willing to be persuaded.

Michigan, for example, was the most recent state to approve casinos. It did so after watching a steady stream of people cross the border to gamble at a nearby casino in Canada. A recent study valued Massachusetts residents' trips to Connecticut casinos at $620 million.

In the past, the Station formula has been built on placing those elements within the casino. That way, when customers walked through the casino, they would have plenty of opportunities to drop a few bucks on a slot machine or blackjack game.

Still, other development companies have steered away from directly investing in the casino business. Howard Hughes Corp., for example, had long planned for casinos in Summerlin, but sold gaming-entitled land parcels to outside operators. The Greenspuns instead swapped their land parcel for a 50 percent equity stake in Green Valley Ranch. 350c69d7ab
