Assuming you weren't required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, perhaps a pro- insider casino revelation or personal experiences book with some new twist would make for informative reading for players (using an appropriate pen name, of course). Short Stories with some sparkling expose are always in demand by weekly publications.

Often times for anyone who has had a long career. when they L@@K back through the spins & come outs LOL gathering & collecting these past happenings ignites a unique mental flash will occur..... food for thought. Tape recording your narrative is a good tool and then there is the DRAGON software that will correct & print to get you started. If for nothing else your experiences will become valuable family history fo your descendants and not be hone with the wins(d) Wink ~~~~

 

Give first call on the doing the movie, OK?

That's a great idea, in the past I've often wished I had kept a sort of diary of short stories rather than sit down and try to do it all at once,

but I never new it would last that long. tape recording some of the folks I worked with over the years might work.

                          The real killer for AC was Pennsylvania. A ton of clientel came from the Philly/Bucks County area. 

                          PA brought the casino to the masses. Right in the neighborhood. You can mow your lawn, go gamble..then come home and relax 

                          or do whatever. Going to A/C required a whole day affair. They gouge you parking fees. And you come home late at night

                          pissed off. IMO NJ should have been proactive in this regard and allowed casinos to be built at or nearby every border point.

                          PA is now the 2nd largest gambling destination in America. Sports betting in AC?? Too little too late. In 2-5 years those outlets 

                          in AC will be a ghost town. 

                           

                          They ruined it.

                              Caesar's facing $23 billions in debt;Caesars weighs layoffs, but Las Vegas Strip could be spared

                              Caesars Entertainment Corp. expects to create an extra $250 million to $300 million in cash flow in 2015 through various cost-savings measures. Much of the cash flow increase could come through cost savings, such as layoffs and other measures.
