Recollections – Developing New Casinos by Chris Moore
When I began my casino career in 1974, most of the casinos in London were owned by individuals. One or two owners had slightly disreputable backgrounds and a few were actually ex-croupiers. The casino business has changed since then, becoming much more regulated and far more corporate. At the same time it has become slightly less vibrant and a little less stimulating. That is of course only an opinion, many accountant-types would argue that the industry has improved beyond recognition with no core damage whatever. What seems undeniable is that the casino industry has a dynamic future, as it continues to adapt and expand around the globe.
