The amount of time gamblers in the nation's second-largest casino market are spending in Atlantic City casinos is falling, and they're holding on more tightly to their wallets while they're there. A new statistical study shows the amount of time gamblers spent inside the gambling halls is down more than 22 percent, and the amount of money they spend there is down almost 30 percent over the last four years.
