According to a <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-05/report-las-vegas-draws-more-millennial-first-time-visitors" target="_blank">recent report</a>, gambling time now totals 1.9 hours during an entire stay in Vegas, an hour less than in 2015 and over two hours less than twenty years ago. This change is being driven almost entirely by the younger generation who are spending just 8.5 percent of their income on gambling compared to the <a href="http://intraweb.stockton.edu/eyos/business/content/docs/LIGHT/Millenial%20Entertainment%20Preferences%20-%20FINAL%20REPORT.pdf" target="_blank">23.5% spent by their parents</a>. The American entertainment industry has therefore made it a top priority to grab, and keep, the attention of the millennial market.</p> <p>What does a less gambling-centric future mean for cities like Las Vegas?
