Ever get lost in a casino? It's not that tough to do the first time you wander around a large property. Of course the casino owners are able to take advantage of that and get more money from you with clever casino designs.
I don't know why, but I always get lost in Caesar's on the Las Vegas Strip. I know the casino is pretty much a horseshoe design, but I've turned the wrong way at the poker room more than once. Of course they like that. Instead of an easy route to my hotel tower I have to walk a long way past tables and slots from the Race & Sports area with each game calling me softly.
Usually, I try to map the casino in my mind with point "A" as the parking area I used, Point "B" as the poker room, and point "C" as my hotel tower. Problem is, employees keep telling me something is to the left, or to the south. I'm no good with compass directions. Of course I have that same problem on the highway.
The MGM seems to get me too. In Atlantic City I find it really tough to leave valet at the Borgata and get back later in the evening, even if I'm not drinking! It should be easy. Maybe it's just all the lights winking and blinking. I haven't made it into the Revel, but I understand their revenue went up several million this past month. In fact, the $20 million the casino won was only about $5 million more than they need to make to pay their debt service. Good luck, Revel!
