Again, live in squalor while the elite live lakeside.

You do realize the initial profit forecasts were made over 5 years ago right? The casino isn't going anywhere, and also remember that money they made is without the hotel being open for 5 or 6 months.

That is what a great businessman/owner thought here too. And it was on a famous boardwalk and ocean front, not in smelly cow country.

The Trump Taj Mahal, the Atlantic City, N.J., casino that the real estate mogul built for $1.2 billion in 1990, went for 4 cents on the dollar when it was sold in March.

No they are into two of the least desirable businesses that exist today in my opinion: gambling and cigarettes. I think their ancestors would be appalled.

Thank God that Europeans and their descendants from the time of Sir Walter Raleigh to Philip Morris to Donald Trump have never sullied their hands with such immoral endeavors.

Fool, educate thyself:

I am a gambler, have been for many years. I was thrilled with the prospect of a casino within minutes of my home .
When DeLago opened i went there on a regular basis saving myself over an hour travel to Turning Stone.

It has been many many months and will continue forever that i do not go to DelLago. I could post many reasons but first and foremost is I can't win jack there.......

I enter TS with 3 or 4 hundred dollars and play all day.
Same 3 - 4 hundred dollars in Lago is gone is less than 1 hour. same machines same bet money is gone.

Before you mouth off I am not new at this, been losing for many years. I have played same machines exactly the same machines at each establishment and TS returns way more opportunity than DelLago can even pretend to.

While multi million dollar casinos are built strictly to take my money, (i know this better than most) Lago is like a boat in my opinion, A boat is a hole in the water where you pour your money. Lago is a building that makes owning a boat look like a grand bargan.
Indians or not lago has to learn you can't milk your cows to death.
