Super Casino: Inside the New Las Vegas | Pete Earley | ISBN: | Kostenloser Versand für alle Bücher mit Versand und Verkauf duch Amazon.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book is really two books in one. The first part deals with how Las Vegas came to be, the establishment of the first casinos, a small description of how Jay Sarno established Caesars Palace and Circus Circus nothing like the more detailed story of "Grandissimo" , background on how Steve Wynn established himself in Las Vegas, and how Circus Circus established itself as the largest casino company on the strip.

Its really the last part that dominates the book, describing how Circus Circus turned itself around after Sarno had to let it go up to getting the Luxor off the ground and the building of Mandalay Bay.

The background on all the owners and managers is far from superficial and was very interesting, but if you are looking for multichapter biographies you will be disappointed; wars between owners are investigated and presented from both sides, but you won't find psyche analyses.

The stories of the casino employees is great in getting to see how things work at a casino and the type of culture that exists.

The stories about the gamblers and the prostitute did not fit in well and would have been better in a book just about Las Vegas stories prostitute finds old customer who falls in love with her and helps her get out of business, prostitute finds true love, old customer gets mad and dumps her, true love dumps her once he finds out she was prostitute, and then old customer takes her back and gets her out of Las Vegas.

Also throughout the book are interspersed quick page stories from people who work at casinos or are customers, ones to just give you an idea how cut throat Las Vegas can be.

Overall it's a really nice read if you want to learn more about how Vegas came to be. I dropped one star from the rating simply because of incorporation of the individual stories in some cases took away from the casino stories and history.

Las Vegas has certainly changed in the past 20 years. Casinos have become big business, and their owners are now Fortune companies with Wall Street ties rather than the shady characters from Cleveland.

Pete Earley attempts to contrast the old and new Vegas, and finds many differences and some surprising similarities. The action in the executive suites is just as cut-throat now as it ever was, although the casino business is quite different.

We get to meet a sampling of casino executives and lower management, as well as a few dealers and even some of the denizens of the gambling floors and cocktail lounges.

Some of the stories are heartbreaking, some slightly vulgar, but in total they present a good overview of how a super-casino functions. He makes the case that the newer casinos are very different, and rely more on entertainment and lodging for profits than the older casinos did.

With that comes a new focus on quality of foot and beverages, better accommodations, higher standards of service, and blockbuster entertainment.

Throughout the book, the author constantly contrasts the requirements of the new Vegas with the traditional casinos of the 's and 70's.

We see the tool the casino takes on its workers, its gamblers, and the others who are a part of the tawdry casino business.

The environment is cut-throat, especially in the executive suites where the ultimate high-stakes gambling is underway. The story is not told in chronological order, but frequently jumps back in time between old and new Vegas.

Some of the tales seem a little cliched, and I would love to read just one Las Vegas book that doesn't mention "Casino" and Tony Spilatro.

The book was easy to read, and captured and held my interest throughout. I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in the business of gaming.

The description of the early "grind joints" sets the stage for contrasting the "Super Casinos" of the s. The second half of the book deals with a behind-the-scenes look at the Luxor from the perspective of numerous characters- corporate management, the general manager, a gaming shift supervisor, a security chief, and a cabaret dancer.

Having formerly worked as a securities analyst, the Wall Street angles throughout the book were of interest. Earley does a great job of tracking the industry's access to financing.

Earley does a great job of tracking the industry's access to financing. One also better appreciates the factors which drive gaming stocks as evidenced by the volatile stock price of Circus Circus now Mandalay Bay Resort Group.

Overall I found Earley's book informative and enjoyable, he is a hardened journalist who is extremely thorough and leaves himself out of the plot.

This book had its flaws yet it was a somewhat enjoyable taste of Vegas. It stops before the Wynn was built so it feels a bit dated in some of its stories.

It has a tendency to jump back and forth, up and down and left and right in the stories it tells, so sometimes it's easy to get mixed up in which timeline of Vegas history you are in.

Worth a read, just keep in mind it's often more about the people and their stories than the city itself. See all 73 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

One also better appreciates the factors which drive gaming stocks as evidenced by the volatile stock price of Circus Circus now Mandalay Bay Resort Group.

Real gambling is standing at a craps table and shooting the dice with your entire paycheck spread out on the numbers.

You ever go to the circus? I remember as a kid watching a guy do all sorts of flips and twirls and turns, and he was really, really good.

You knew if he missed that bar, he was going to fall and die. I have felt that same psychological rush gambling. When I gamble, I am having the best time of my life and I am having the absolute worst time too.

It can be absolutely terrifying and absolutely beautiful. What am I going to do if I lose! And then that card falls or the ball stops or the dice quit rolling and you see the results and you either have won more than you dreamed possible or you have lost everything….

Those are the moments that really count because you are up there flying without a net.

Through this insight it becomes extremely obvious that being a Las Vegas casino dealer lacks glamour and is often extremely stressful. Earley is too intelligent to be this off-target. Asked by investigators from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to aid in solving a murder, Tony launched his own searches for forgotten victims with clues provided by the killers themselves.
