We study casino revenue management through the pricing of hotel rooms in the presence of gaming revenue, which is random. We identify a stochastic order based on customers’ gaming profiles, from which a monotonic inventory price of rooms is obtained. We develop a threshold-type pricing policy for a special customer segmentation scheme that allows customers’ winning profiles to be ranked in terms of the failure rate order. Our results shed new light on customer valuation and market segmentation.
