Evansville casino plans 1,000-seat theater
#1 Aug 9, 2007
When are these numbskulls going to figure it out? There is only so much of this gambling/resort money to go around. Competition begats lower prices and lower profits. We can't ALL own a casino. Who would come.

I've said it before...and I'll say it again. The dips at the Indiana Gaming Commission have allowed too many casinos along the Ohio River. In time, only the one near Cincy will probably survive. These idiots have screwed up Evansville's chance at jobs, prosperity, and growth by allowing the market to be flooded with all these casinos. I'd like to see us turn the boat into a dinner-cruise ship that offers a two-hour cruise and dinner with live bands! Take the slot machines off and you'll still have plenty of people who would pay good money for a trip up and down the Ohio for a couple of hours. Also, church groups and conventioneers could rent the vessel for their parties. We still have the Hotel and Pavilion on the waterfront along with a newly opened Entertainment District. I blame the Commission for this disaster waiting to happen...and the fact that Aztar was recently taken over by a Kentucky-based company.I want this boat to succeed...but the chances are becoming slimmer all the time.

The Gaming commission has truly screwed Aztar, opening way to many gambling spots around the area. I suppose that the new French Lick casino is pulling business from Aztar also. There are to many of these places around. I myself don't gamble but its plain to see that the state is once again giving E-town the shaft. They were the first casino, and they will be the first to go.
