retail news in context, analysis with attitude

This is the kind of story that one runs into while in Las Vegas...

"Grocery store gambling is undergoing a major overhaul in the Las Vegas Valley as Golden Gaming prepares to spend millions of dollars renovating all of the region’s supermarket casinos," the Las Vegas Sun reports.

Ten gaming parlors are scheduled to be upgraded this year, with another 70 slated to improved over the following 24 months.

According to the story, "Game banks at most supermarkets feature older machines, mostly video poker, in open areas," while "the new salons feature enclosed rooms with updated games and modern décor."

This is, apparently, a pretty big business: "Golden Gaming operates more than 2,000 slot machines at Vons, Smith’s, Albertsons and other grocery stores statewide," the Sun writes.
