LETTER: Resort chiefs missing the boat on Nevada lottery

I have a suggestion to the resort industry, which objects to a Nevada state lottery. They need to rethink that. It actually could bring more customers into their resorts.

If we get a lottery, the resorts could volunteer to set up lottery ticket stations. It would definitely bring in some new customers. It would also give these ticket buyers a chance to take advantage of the resort’s amenities — hit a slot or two on the way out, maybe get a bite to eat or take in a show.

I think gaming officials are missing out on a potential moneymaking opportunity. Some of the 200,000 people who cross state lines to purchase lottery tickets would be coming into the resorts instead.

I buy the tickets, but I very rarely go to the resorts on the Strip. If they had lottery sales, I’d be there and most likely spend some time in them.
