We empirically analyze the return on investment of different casino resort amenities (e.g., casinos, hotels, restaurants, and other entertainment). We model casino corporation stock prices using regression analysis of cross-sectional time series data. Stock prices are explained by variables that represent firm-level investments in and revenues from different functional areas of the typical casino resort, and two macroeconomic control variables. Results are sensitive to the dependent return variable chosen; and revenue variable results differ from expenditure variable results. This suggests that subsequent research should focus on market-specific analyses, which may help to determine which amenities provide greatest returns in particular markets.
