The casino industry is trying its very best to overhaul their services to make them more appealing to potential patrons hence why many bands are now doing huge casino tours across the United States. Casinos in Las Vegas have been hit the hardest along with some of the smaller independent operators because of the spike in online gaming providers. Online gaming has become a popular option nowadays, as people can easily access slots on their mobile devices while on-the-go and the websites have modernized features such as free spins and top-up bonuses upon deposit – things that land-based casinos can’t offer. As a way to counterbalance the competition, casinos all over the world are upping the ante by providing extra entertainment to casino goers, and this includes featuring popular bands like Duran Duran being used as a way to get new customers through the doors.
Tickets to Duran Duran’s performance will start at $125, and are available at Fallsview Casino’s Box Office and Ticketmaster outlets.
