South Point is among few casino operators that still offer “cheap food, good odds,” says Anthony Curtis, a publisher of books on Las Vegas. The resort’s video poker slots return 99%, compared with about 96% or 97% on the Strip, according to Curtis. “Gaughan knows that you get them in the door with food and liquor and entertainment and you make a few bucks when they gamble,” says Ted Newkirk, founder of Access Vegas.
South Point is unique among Las Vegas resorts for its 4,600-seat equestrian arena.
“The secret is you have to find people that want to play [on the casino floor],” says Michael Gaughan, owner of South Point
