New Casinos = When will this stop?

No I'm not at all against new casinos or fun, but I'm wondering how long before the number of casinos and too many choices will cause some of them to go out of business.

In Wisconsin, some have built larger and are now stagnant. That's also fine, they have a hotel and casino and over building wouldn't make sense. Rainbow in Nekoosa is now Ho-Chunk. Majestic Pines in Black River Falls is now run my Ho-Chunk. I'm not sure what's going on with the ones up North that are smaller and more out in the country than the ones closer to cities.

Reno didn't go down the drain, just because of Las Vegas, AC and tribal casinos took away enough of the business to make Reno difficult for business and unable to support the smaller casino market.

Now states that had no casinos, are joining the party. Not only that, many are allowing sports betting. This is all about money and tax revenue.

For Example:

Since the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), the federal law prohibiting sports gambling, in 2018, 30 states and Washington DC now offer some form of sports wagering. Of those, 21 states and DC offer both in-person (retail) and online gambling; two states offer only online wagering; and in eight states, bets can only be placed in person, typically at a casino or racetrack.

In addition, three more states have legalized sports gambling but have yet to launch any in-person or online platforms.

Six more have legalizing sports betting, in the works. I don't know the actual 2023 numbers. Fair to say 30 or more.

Checking, and this could have changed... Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia do not have any land-based or tribal casinos.

Arkansas by the way, three casinos are operating, one lost the license and in the news, a second. "A court in Arkansas has reversed the state Racing Commission’s decision to offer Cherokee Nation Business’s casino license in the state."
