The 1 October attack that occurred at the Route 91 music festival is impacting gambling statistics for casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. 

For example, Caesars Palace has felt a decline in international gamblers since the 1 October shooting.

For days immediately following the shooting, a haze fell over the Las Vegas strip and casino floors. 13 Action News reporter Marissa Kynaston captured photos of the empty casino floors following the tragedy.

What no one could predict is how the attack would impact the city in the long term and those early numbers are showing that it has made some gamblers cautious.

Projections show that the number of gamblers should rise again but it may take 3 or 4 months.
