Las Vegas plans to attract more Roulette Players from Abroad 22.01.2012

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority wants to increase the number of tourists from abroad that visit the city every year and spend money at its hotel and casino resorts. Tourists’ money is highly needed in most US states that have yet to recover from the recession that hit the country in 2008 and are battling soaring unemployment rates.

There is another reason that Las Vegas is interested in attracting more foreign tourists – the average US visitor to Las Vegas spends on average $645 during an average three day stay. Compare that to the average international tourist that spends on average $1011 during their trip and tends to stay longer than 4 days in the city.

In 2010 Las Vegas was visited by 37.3 million tourists, with 18 percent of them being international tourists (about 6.7 million people). The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority wants to increase the percentage of international tourists to the city to 30 percent.

International tourism is considered as an “exported goods” although the visitors come to the US and spend their money there. As an “exported good” international tourism contributed more to the US economy than any other exported good, therefore it is of little surprise that tourist boards across the US wish to increase the numbers of international tourists.

However Las Vegas casinos will have to make a special effort if they wish to appeal to European roulette players and this is due to the fact that most Las Vegas casinos offer mainly Double Zero Roulette games which are less common in Europe and offer players worse odds than Single Zero Roulette.

If Las Vegas casinos would add more European Roulette tables and provide European players with the odds they are used to getting when they play roulette in Europe, then the task of attracting more roulette players to come try out their luck in Las Vegas would be a much easier to perform.
