Response to Casino gambling as a revenue source?

 
In regards to beer/wine sales, a whole day of collected tax revenue adds up.
Georgia is only one of only three states that has that silly law still on the books. In regards to Casino gambling, it will create jobs and is also another tax basis. Looks like New Jersey does ok.
