I thought you needed good defined for you.

Well, yes. There are ups and downs to having a casino in your city as there are ups and downs to most things. So in order to answer the question whether a Casino is good for a city, one would have to clarify what "good for a city" means to the person that is asking the question.

Casinos belong on native reservations and urban centers. Not in areas where normal god fearing types live.

Right. The normal god fearing type will travel into the sin centers to gamble.

Honestly, I wish gambling were legal in most states. Yes, sure the 'addicts' would have an issue as they always do, but if you build it and you tax it, then the revenue stream is almost endless..... (The bad is the spending (by citizens and government) is too).

Gambling should be legal. If people want to pizz away their money, let them pizz it away. In fact, gambling is legal in most places - it's just that the states love to have that monopoly on it. The lottery. That's gambling. And it's legal just about everywhere. Big revenue source for the states, too.

Gambling parlors everywhere around here. The Po Po turns a blind eye. It's all done under the guise of winning merchandise. You win 800 in merchandise. Get a 5 buck mug and 790 in change .

Hello and regards,

Thank you for all the responses.

By good I mean the impact on quality of living for residents in close.

For example, some individuals say it attracts crime, ok, but what kind.

Sincerely and regards

We have one casino in town - the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. My wife has family that works at that place and without reservation I will say that it is a super employer paying their staff well, treating their staff well and offering superb benefit packages compared to their peers in the hospitality industry - where can you get comprehensive, quality health insurance for $10.00 a week? They employ a couple thousand people at least at that facility and that has got to have a positive impact on the city and county. Nothing in terms of trouble or crime around that place so I don't see much in terms of a downside. Except gambling addictions but I am not aware that a casino in town actually makes that worse. It may, I am just not aware of any evidence that it does.
