What Others are Saying About Spectrum

Mr. Pollock and his team were extremely knowledgeable about the Arizona gaming economy, the demographic and geographic impacts on casino feasibility, and the manifold factors that impacted the viability and profitability of gaming facilities in general.

Scot L. Klaus Dickinson Wright PLLC

‘We have long known that hundreds of millions of Kentucky dollars are flowing out of our state and into the budgets of surrounding states with expanded gaming — paying for their roads and their schools,‘ Gov. Steve Beshear said in a statement Monday night in response to the (Spectrum) study. ‘The fact that gaming could generate nearly $2 billion in Kentucky in the first year reminds us just how much we are losing.‘"

Lexington Herald-Leader, January 7, 2012

That leaves the Spectrum Group‘s study. I thought when I started working through it that it would be just more industry cheerleading. But it wasn‘t. It was a sober, professional piece of work full of cautions and qualifications.

Working on short notice, Spectrum Gaming Group produced two reports, including a market study, that were comprehensive with supportable, conservative projections.
