In this talk, Rowley discusses his research into the origins of the locals casino phenomenon in Las Vegas. Locals casinos, which cater primarily to residents of the city rather than tourists, date from the 1970s and are a characteristic development of the local landscape. Rowley also links the expansion of the locals gaming market with the proliferation of casino gambling across the United States.
