George, you're kind of making my point. Why would they go to Slots? The building is uninviting toRead Moresa y they least, if you don't like playing the machines there isn't much for you or whomever you're with, and the parking lot is empty so you know no one else is there. Millennials don't want to SLOT gamble, they want poker, blackjack, and roulette, games with more than lights and sounds. Guess what would change all of that? About 40 million dollars, more attractive gaming, more attractive events and shows, and a MUCH more attractive appearance. And your facts are wrong about Twin River, their income has increased significantly over the past 5 years (estimated to be around $470 million this year up from $396 million in '09) with them not being a destination casino, just like Newport would be. Again, what is going on in Vegas, Atlantic City, and Connecticut has little to do with what Newport will have. They are not the type of Casino that Newport will have, and they are FAR from the type of place that Newport is. Obviously I'm not going to change your mind on this, and you're not going to change mine, but personal feelings aside, right up the road in Lincoln is a gambling facility that had gone through highs and lows in the past, but just approved Table Games and their income has increased over the past 5 years despite other casinos revenues falling. You don't have to look far for an example of what we could have here as a continuing asset and amenity that would pump millions of dollars into the city and state budget that is always stretched paper thin.
