Vegas Strip gambling revenue plunges in aftermath of mass shooting – Eagle

The mass shooting in Las Vegas by a gunman perched high above concert grounds left 58 people dead, hundreds wounded and thousands scarred by the trauma of that night.

Now the Las Vegas Strip is seeing the economic effects of what unfolded Oct. 1.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Thursday that in October the Las Vegas Strip saw a decline in revenue of more than 6 percent compared with October 2016. Then, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority released its data showing visitation to the city was down 4.2 percent to 3.6 million visitors in October compared with the same month in 2016.

Shows Resume on Las Vegas Strip After Mass Shooting

LAS VEGAS — The fountains at the Bellagio Resort and Casino resumed Tuesday and many Las Vegas shows were back on, a day after the attractions were closed out of respect for the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting that left 58 people dead.

Jennifer Forkish, vice president of corporate communications at Caesars Entertainment — which owns the Palace, the LINQ and Paris Las Vegas, among others — said that cancellation fees were being waived for guests wanting to change their trips “but none of our cancellations appear to be out of the norm.”

Jennifer Lopez performances planned for Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at Planet Hollywood were postponed out of respect for the victims.

One could hear a pin drop on the closed section of Las Vegas Boulevard near the scene of Sunday night’s shooting, in which a gunman opened fire from the 32nd-floor window of Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino before apparently killing himself. More than 500 other people were injured, and police haven’t determined a motive.
