Las Vegas companies win, lose from gaming ballot initiatives

"Gaming initiatives do better when times are tough," said casino consultant Joe Weinert with Spectrum Gaming Group in Atlantic City. "Voters are going to say, 'What's in it for me.'"

Gaming proponents in states such as Maryland, Missouri and Colorado were able to make a case that residents statewide would benefit from increased tax revenue, whereas those arguments fell flat in Ohio and Maine, where developers were proposing only one casino, Weinert said.

"When voters in Maine and Ohio asked, 'What's in it for me,' the answer was, 'Not much, if anything,'" he said.
