The Casino Needs to Realize Baby Boomers are still their Bread and Butter in gambling.
Sure, we don’t stay out until 2:00 am partying. But, we are more mobile, available, and interested in recreation than any senior groups before us. So why all the bother about those millennials? Word has it most are so in debt, free games like Jenga and Shuffle Board (yes, can you believe it!) now offered in casual casino lounge areas better be accompanied by the “oonce” of night club activity and cheap drinks to pry their money (destined to pay off beau-coups loans) away from them.
NEWSFLASH – Hey CASINOS, WE’RE STILL HERE! 55+ and we’re better than ever!
So, senior gamblers are not your great grandmother’s gamblers anymore. When it comes to gambling, value and comps, we are are usually (hopefully) smarter than many younger patrons, and value our relationships with casino staff, hosts, dealers and bosses.
So, it’s not a wonder that there are some great deals for senior gamblers in New England’s Casinos. Here is an updated list for May & June, 2016:
