Many Parker biographers, including Dirk Vellenga and Alanna Nash, have stated that Parker's gambling really began to get out of hand in the mid-1960s. With his wife's health deteriorating, and Presley's career struggling, Parker found an escape at the Las Vegas casinos. Fans and biographers alike believe that one of the main reasons Parker signed Presley to a Las Vegas hotel in 1969 for his live comeback was to help cover the losses he had experienced in their casino. He would often spend 12–14 hours at a time gambling, betting large sums of money instead of little amounts. At the time of Presley's death it was suspected that Parker owed the Las Vegas Hilton $30 million. In a lifetime that saw him earn in excess of $100 million, Parker's estate was barely worth $1 million when he died.

EPE paid for his collection 2 million $ in the mid 90's, so he had more money.

2 million for the whole parker collection is like giving it away. They didn't wanted to have many attention about the deal so they transported the whole collection during the night from madison to memphis. This was the best deal for EPE ever because the Colonel was like Vernon and saved everyting around Elvis.
happy they did...
