An interesting aspect of the casino economy is its potential for providing unaccountable monies for covert projects. When you go to a casino and lose $250 at the roulette wheel do you get a receipt for your entertainment? No, you don't. It's just like throwing the money into a black hole; god only knows where it goes from there. It hasn't generated any records - therefore it's possible to deny its very existence, to a degree.

With all the money that would be needed to run a top secret base like Area 51 in the middle of the Nevada desert wouldn't the casinos be a perfect way to pay for it? Also, how would they power such a base in the mid 1940's? Maybe Hover Dam.

Isn't JANET (the airline that takes the Area-51 workers to the base) run out of the Las Vegas airports or something?
