Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg Industries Brian Miller reports on Ceasars Federal money-laundering probe on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West." (Source: Bloomberg)

Largest network of casinos in the united states and generated $7.5 billion over the past year.

For more, brian miller joins us from our princeton office.

We can talk about the quarter and we can talk about some of the headlines recently about some regulatory and approval issues in massachusetts.

How much of a problem is this going to be for caesars?

Not right now for this quarter bed looking forward this is going to be a knock on their future revenue.

Massachusetts is not the biggest part of the company's revenues.

That is las vegas.

About 35% of sales.

That is good for the casino.

Non-gaming revenues are 50% of the picture.

That is also growing.

Caesars stock is about 170% this year, trading at a premium to other operators.

They do a lot of revenue overseas.

That is good for equity holders.
