Part 1: Casinos Close Up!

When most of us think of casinos we think of the Las Vegas Strip and why not it is glamorous, fun and dare I say it… SEXY! I live 900 miles away from Las Vegas and yet a sizable part of my income has come from casinos.

There are 40 casinos in Colorado alone. 21 other states have some form of casino gambling and this does not include Tribal casinos.
