At the risk of making a serious reply in a lolhooker thread, there is a distinct difference between the hookers on the street and the hookers in a casino in terms of law enforcement.
Casinos are private property; their general attitude is that so long as nobody's causing any trouble, they leave them be - if you happen to strike up a conversation with a scantily-clad woman hanging out by the bathrooms or cashier's cage, and you happen to go to a private room, casino security isn't going to do anything about it. Often the popular clubs and bars are teeming with trolling hookers; while it's illegal, I've never seen casino security clamp down on anyone who wasn't making trouble (the only instance I've ever seen was a vocal prostitute who was either drunk or mentally ill).
The hookers on the walkways and sidewalks are pretty similar to streetwalkers, as far as I can tell. Police officers routinely patrol the public areas and I've seen plenty of officers harassing hookers loitering around.
