I have a different take on all this. Corporate greed is an ugly thing. Karma is a bitch though, right now things are good, they can pull this crap. The economy will slow at some point then watch the panic ensue. All of a sudden resort fees will disappear, parking fees will be waved, and bigger free play for every one. I have seen these cycles before. They need the smaller bettors don't let anyone fool you. They represent the biggest % of gamblers in the casino. They are not the bane of the casino they are the average customer and put a lot of dough in the machines! Max bettors are great for the casino but represent a small percentage in the casino. Don't believe me look around when you are in a casino at the bets people are placing.
