President Barack Obama is a good bet for the Vegas casinos.

Not much stops the gambling on the Las Vegas Strip.

But yesterday the slot machines were silenced for a few moments as President Obama was inaugurated.

The big screen TVs in the sports betting parlors switched from games to news coverage.

Even the blackjack dealers paused to see a new hand in history being dealt.
