I'm one of those... visit Vegas maybe 3-4 times a year, spends far more money dinning, watching shows, and clubbing than gambling... Bigger clubs than LA, lots of bachelor/bachelorette parties, and whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I think for the younger generation, facebook, twitter, what have you made people less sociable in everyday setting, so going to a place like Vegas to party provides a different type of escape from everyday life. Gambling is too much of a "loner" activity.

Last I heard, the Chinese government is limiting how much you can withdraw and put on credit card to curb gambling in Macau... Singapore is still the money laundering center of Asia, Macau is there to satisfy the typical Asian gambling addiction.
