Ahead of Veterans Day on Friday 11 November, a number of gaming and casino companies are forming partnerships or making a series of donations.

The Salute the Troops celebration lasts five days and is now in its 12th year, although it now has a 'new home' in the Mandalay Bay.

As part of the celebration, American Airlines will fly active-duty service members to Las Vegas from around the US – for free, while MGM Resorts will provide a free weekend of accommodation, entertainment and food & drink.

As part of the holiday, Las Vegas and Southern Nevada will host a series of 'activities, events and excursions,' while MGM Resorts has reiterated its commitment to supporting military members and their families.

MGM Resorts CEO & President Bill Hornbuckle said: "We are incredibly grateful for the dedication to service that members of the armed forces and their families have made for our country and all of us.

"It is with awe and appreciation of their courage and sacrifice that we celebrate these heroes by providing them a world-class guest experience."

In financial news for the company this week, MGM Resorts reported a 26% year-on-year rise to $3.4bn in Q3 revenue.

Despite that increase, however, MGM Resorts' share price has fallen this week, closing at $31.41 on Thursday afternoon, having started the week at $35.57.

MGM China continues to suffer from low revenue in Macau, while MGM Resorts-owned LeoVegas also this week reported a 1% decrease in Q3 revenue.
