The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem held a public forum on the progress of the casino that opened five months ago in Bethlehem, Pa. Although the casino's slot revenue averages $200 per day per machine instead of the $300 forecast, the casino has created 1,000 permanent jobs in the region. The $743 million casino has not drawn as much traffic as expected, and plans for a 300-room hotel adjoining the casino are on hold.
