In American history, early casinos were originally known as saloons. The creation and importance of saloons was greatly influenced by four major cities; New Orleans, St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco. It was in the saloons that travelers could find people to talk to, drink with, and often gamble with. During the early 20th century in America, gambling became outlawed and banned by state legislation and social reformers of the time. However, in 1931, gambling was legalized throughout the state of Nevada, and Las Vegas, presently known as 'Sin City', spawned America's first official casinos. Soon after, in the state of New Jersey, Atlantic City joined the Casino industry in 1978 to become America's second largest gambling city.

SeychellesI have added the Seychelles casino link, because Dmoz is not listing any of those. (http://seychellescasino.com)
If you're talking about deleting Biloxi, that city was considered the leading gambling center in the Southern U.S. The article on Biloxi even says so if you had bothered to read it. Mike H (Talking is hot) 02:45, 2 October 2005 (UTC) If you had checked, you would have seen I also removed Laughlin. I was also thinking about Reno along with most of the others. But the question about why any of these cities needs to be listed is still on the table. How do they help understand the word casino? Vegaswikian 05:50, 2 October 2005 (UTC) I think it's helpful in understanding where the famous casinos in the world are. If you want an understanding on the word, go to Wiktionary. That's what it's there for. Mike H (Talking is hot) 07:50, 2 October 2005 (UTC) But that is exactly my point. List some famous casinos and not cities with casinos. Vegaswikian 08:13, 2 October 2005 (UTC) I don't have a problem with every casino in the world being listed, although, at some point we should break it off as a 'list of casinos' article and provide a link. This would solve the problem of the list being 'in the way'. StuRat 20:26, 6 October 2005 (UTC) Which is already included in the 'see also' as List of casinos. Vegaswikian 00:12, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Good point, that eliminates the need for an internal list. StuRat 01:55, 7 October 2005 (UTC)
I will take any suggestions of where it should go (other than the trash, LOL). I was thinking it is more of an economics related section, with the casino investment vs. education and infrastructure discussion similar to the classic guns vs. butter economics question. The issue of an oversupply of gambling facilities in the Detroit/Windsor area is also an economics issue. I do believe it is directly about casinos, although some of the issues would also relate to gambling in other forms. Other issues are casino-specific, though. Lotteries and horse tracks don't typically have associated hotels like casinos do, for example. StuRat 21:05, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Economic and social impacts of gambling maybe? There appears to be additional material in various gambling articles. Not sure what categries it would be in, but I can see quite a few links to it as a NPOV article. Vegaswikian 21:10, 7 October 2005 (UTC) And the vast majority of casinos in Vegas don't have a hotel either. Keep the discussion to the gaming area and you can address all of the associated forms. Vegaswikian 21:22, 7 October 2005 (UTC) I can't see anybody typing all that in, can you come up with something shorter ? Also, when I drive thru Vegas I sure see a lot of hotels attached to casinos. The same is true when I stay there. Are you sure that most of them don't have hotels ? StuRat 21:45, 7 October 2005 (UTC) When I see a link that should be in other articles I use copy and paste. It will be findable when doing a search. It would be no where near close to the longest article name in wiki. But I believe that it would be a very accurate name for the article. It would be easy when you create the aricle to copy and paste in that links as appropiate. --- I would guess that in Vegas, there are likely almost as many casinos with a supermarket attached as with a hotel attached. Probably casinos with a bar attached is the most common, but I don't have that break down. Vegaswikian 22:32, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Ok, I say we leave it where it is for a few days to elicit more commentary, then move it if we get a consensus. The section is written explicitly for casinos, so perhaps a casino section could be added to the new article. Please include links to other sites you have found which contain text you think should also be moved to the new article and I will take a look. StuRat 22:54, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Racino for one. Gambling advertising for another. Searching for economics and gaming gives quite a few hits. Any of the Las Vegas area articles have material that could be included from history or economics. Vegaswikian 23:17, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Thanks, I'll look at those. Please list any others you come across. StuRat 23:23, 7 October 2005 (UTC) I would change the name, at the very least, to 'Economic and social impacts of gambling'. I see no reason to accept the gambling industry's euphemism for gambling, as it can easily be confused with games which don't involve wagering. StuRat 22:59, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Perhaps it should be called 'Economic and social impacts of legal organized gambling' to distinguish it from a penny-ante game of cards between friends and from bookies. StuRat 23:27, 7 October 2005 (UTC) Just create the article with a reasonable name. It can be moved if there is a problem. If you think it needs to include legal, then do it. However your text already discusses how this interacts with illegal gambling so maybe it would be best to stay with what was suggested. Vegaswikian 23:31, 7 October 2005 (UTC) It interacts with illegal gambling, but that doesn't mean the section is about illegal gambling, any more than it is about prositution, illegal drugs, or theft. I still want to wait a few days and hopefully get some other voices here before doing the move. StuRat 00:38, 8 October 2005 (UTC) Eight days and no further discussion. Time to move that text? Vegaswikian 05:52, 17 October 2005 (UTC)
There should be mention of legislation on casinos in various states of the world and attitudes etc: the sort of games played, membership etc.
So: does anyone other than Geirn and his/her clones agree with keeping the link? Agree with progressing this matter with the aim of banning? Comments welcome. --Mike Van Emmerik 02:06, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
Looks like moments after I posted the above, our spammer was warned once, warned twice, then banned. Let's see if another user pops up with the same behaviour first. --Mike Van Emmerik 04:10, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
What on earth are you talking about. It's a relevant link covering content that can't be put in the article itself. It;s obviously not 'promotional', whatever you mean by that, jeez. Please don't make random edits to the article. 2005 21:47, 31 May 2006 (UTC) Definition #2. --Nnp 22:31, 31 May 2006 (UTC) Exactly. The link is obviously not self promotion (and you know this unless you amzingly haven't evn look at how the site has gambling laws for every US state) so dishonestly labeling it as such is not editing in good faith. Please refrain from such actions in the future. 2005 22:46, 31 May 2006 (UTC) Nnp, the definition of promotion that you posted doesn't apply at all to the site in question. (It's not an advertisement for legal services; it's an outline of gambling laws.) The closest thing to an 'advertisement' on the site is a picture of the webmaster and his contact information, which is information commonly available on many good quality websites.Rray 22:54, 31 May 2006 (UTC) I can easily see why Nnp had a problem here. The entry page has a pretty large bio of the lawyer who created the site, along with a solicitation, and there is very little content on that first page. There's a pretty nice site behind the links at the top of the page, however, and I think that it's comprehensive and informative enough to be included here. Kuru talk 00:16, 1 June 2006 (UTC) Come on. The lawyer bio is not large at all. Saying that the link should be removed because it fits better in the Gambling article makes sense, but being unable to distinguish between a useful resource and an advertisment or self-promotion is something else entirely. Most reputable websites explain who is the author of the site, and that site is no different.Rray 01:30, 1 June 2006 (UTC) Eh? It's fully a third of the linked page. While I agree that the link is a useful resource, it's very easy to see how someone could presume spam without cliking on a few links. Agreed also that it would more properly fit the gambling article. Kuru talk 01:52, 1 June 2006 (UTC) Let's skip the silly stuff please. It's one-third of a page on a 200 page website! It's ludicrous to call that 'promotion', and obvious the link was removed without the person caring to look at the website. What we had here is someone unfamiliar with the topic randomly removing a valuable link that is on topic and not promotional in any sense. External link policies are pretty darn clear and a dislike of lawyers is not a reason to remove one. In this case the link is totally relevant to the article, and no content reason was mentioned for removing it. The encyclopedia is here to deliver quality content to users, not as dislike of lawyers platform. The fact the website makes money of course is of no consequence at all -- it's the quality of the content, and the consideration that obviously we can't have articles on the laws about casinos in every state in this article. It's a perfect example of how linking SHOULD be done in the Wikipedia. However, the additional consideration is that there are other resources out there that are more fully-casino focused, rather than just the law part, so adding other links that are even more relevant is a good thing, and can render this link unneeded here since other resources can mention legalities (even if not as in depth) while dealing more in depth with 'casino' topics. 2005 03:23, 1 June 2006 (UTC) Regardless of self-promotion or not, why is that link here? This entry is about casinos, not gambling or gaming law. Wouldn't the link be more suitable there? A link to someplace like ildado or casinocity would be appropriate here.
