Why Casinos Lack Surveillance In Their Hallways?

The AP found that 23 of the 27 major casinos on the Las Vegas strip had no cameras in their hallways or elevator landings. Like this story says, I've always thought casinos had to be pretty well watched considering the number of cameras on the casino floor, but it's weird to me that this doesn't extend off the floor to the hallways as well -- especially considering their patrons could possibly be walking around with large amounts of money and that elevator landings and hallways are also common egress/entry points. Anyone with experience in a casino know why this is?
