Casino needs top acts, cheap buffets 

Casino needs top acts, cheap buffets 

Lorene Huntley, Schenectady 


I’ve been reading about how the Rivers casino isn’t doing as well as expected and several complaints have been offered.

The gambling bug hasn’t never bitten me, although in my 20’s, I did spend most of a week in Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe.

When I first entered, I was struck by a dimness and the lack of clocks. I hit the blackjack tables. It was very easy to play all night.

Then it was time for breakfast. For 79 cents, I was able to get a breakfast of steak and eggs, hash browns, orange juice, toast or English muffin and endless cups of coffee. Naturally, that’s not feasible these days.

I was young, but I immediately refused the free drinks. A lot of people did like them though.

I was in Monaco a few years later. I refused to enter because it was for tourists, not the James Bond casinos I would have liked to see. I spent the day at Jacques Cousteau’s headquarters. Very interesting. Perhaps there should be more of a tie-in with Viaport.

And the entertainment -- big shows, dancing girls and big-name entertainers. Why can’t these people entertain at the casino? I think this would bring in a lot of money. People of all ages like to have a good time. It’s so necessary with all the stress of life, especially these days.

I think our casino should see that there are some big winners — people tend to flock to these places. Good luck seems to follow itself.
