With the opening of the Bell Jackpot Casino last week, the potentially lucrative business of gambling is back in the city for a third time. Although it's a player again in the $7.5-billion California card club industry, the city is hedging its bets.

The temporary closing of the Regency Club card casino--which Bell officials had expected to provide $955,000 to city coffers this year--has sent the city's finances into a tailspin.
