  1. As a BJ players, sometimes I play Slots just for fun… nop the near misses never make me feel good. I mostly still walk all the way to BJ table

  2. Bonus fact:
    The floor plans of Casinos are designed to be cyclical and non-linear in order to make gamblers feel lost are thus remain wandering the floor; being more likely to start gambling again

  3. poker is a mixture of skill and luck. i donate often to the poker community as i like skill in the game. however sometimes i get lucky and win a pot or two 😉

  4. on casinos: no windows, no clock, free alcool… as a brain trick, and players are losing control when gambling…

  5. Here's another. Casinos have long been known to use air fresheners to keep gamblers in the casino. Not that they're going for some form of overt mind control, but certain aromas can affect peoples moods, and a strategic injection into the ventilation system can subtly help people stay in a positive mood.

  6. Here's one: there are no clocks in casinos. Casinos will use any non-overt tactic to keep you at the tables and it's too easy for you to keep a schedule for other things if you know what time it is. Yes, you might wear a watch or use your phone, but the casinos aren't going to give you any help.

  7. Meh gambling to me is just for fun. I take an amount I'm willing to lose and once it's gone I leave. Might even get lucky and win more than I came in with XD

  8. All forms of gambling in New Zealand is 100% legal and we have no problems at all. I don't get why everywhere else have such big problems with it
