In business, things must move forward..At Mountaineer (Chester) all things have stayed the same...If you go back into time let's say 8 years ago, you would NOT see any change whatsoever in this gaming establishment..Ted wants it to move forward but WVA. won't let it happen..This is the MAIN reason I won't own the stock..It is flat, and too basic with nothing on the horizon to change it..No tables, no high powered progressives, no high limits 10 and 25 dollar slots. NOTHING!! This is NOT a casino but a racino connected to VIDEO lottery and WVA. is going to see that it remains that way....SELL!!!
Why does Keeneland racetrack do better than River Downs or Turfway, why does Argosy Lawrenceburg do better than the Grand Victoria, why does the Atlantic City Borgata do better than Trump's Taj??? Doesn't matter or does it??? What matters is MNTG diversify its' gambling fortress before Pennsylvania begins to knock holes in it..Their plan is to surround MNTG with racinos and keep that money in the state of Pa..If MNTG stays frozen or on their current course, the menu suddenly changes..No longer just cheeseburgers and fries but "have your way" now throws a powerful thrust into the choices that are available...Nickle hell will put you right there..just cheeseburgers and fries ain't going to do it anymore...There is no "moral" equivalent of being good in gambling..Ancient ideology will suffocate MNTG!!!!
Does Mountaineer have all the triple point days and things of that sort that Charles Town has? I went to C-Town last Monday, and just playing quarter slots and quarter (betting only a dollar a time) video poker, I got enough cash back for lunch and dinner for two of us in the food court. I live too far away to visit MTR for comparison, but PENN has an absolutely wonderful operation.
