SimCity (2013) City Specialization: Gambling Reference Guide

City Specialization - Gambling Reference Guide

If straight-up tourism isn't your cup of tea, gambling is great choice for one-stop trips for entertainment, lodging, and hopefully lots of spending. As usual, having comprehensive transit systems is important to ensure that the tourists don't clog your city and spend more time in the casino. To attract more medium- and high-wealth tourists, place a Ferry Terminal with a Cruise Ship Dock nearby. 

But don't just sit on your laurels; criminals seem to breed right out of casinos, so you need to make sure that your police can handle the increase in crime. In fact, you should probably make sure that there's a police station before you build a casino in the first place; maybe even put the casino right next to the police station for good measure.
