The absolute best casino to visit is a new casino still within the same calendar year it opened. Why? Because they are literally giving away money to establish their reputation within the local community for decades to come.
There are solid business reasons for them to give away so many jackpots. Casinos are in a highly competitive environment. With so many casinos these days, it is likely several local casinos compete for your gambling budget.
For example, consider the billboard advertisements of casinos alongside highways. What do they say? Wouldn’t a casino love to be able to (truthfully) say: “#1 Casino in the area: We give the most jackpots!” And so, they do say that.
The casino spends quite a lot of money in its first year to earn the right to say that during the second year of operation – and during every year after. Forever.
Be aware this “best” approach equally applies to any casino that had been closed for some time, sometimes months or even years, due to extensive and major renovations.
Carefully assess any casino beginning with the year after they opened. Don’t assume it’s the same situation. Their solid business reasons for establishing a reputation in their first year will have been modified. It behooves you to check.
Maybe they established their reputation in the first year, and now it’s time to recoup their losses from the gambling public. Maybe they didn’t establish it as well as planned and need to continue for another year.
I’ve seen this happen, where the second year was not nearly as freewheeling as the first. But it turned out to be far better than the third year of operation. Either way, it’s time to assess that casino.
Too many players quickly adopt an extravagant gambling lifestyle based on the first and second year of operation of a casino. Then, in the third year they get into deep financial trouble when the casino switches over to a long-term growth business model – because the players can’t adapt quickly enough because they didn’t understand why they were winning in the first place.
