On Saturday, Reddit user u/LilKoolaid03asked casino workers to share some secrets. They came through with some interesting tidbits — from behind the scenes info to small tricks used to keep people gambling and spending money.
Here's what they said:
1."What we don't want you to know is how many people die in our hotels. Gamblers are risk-takers by nature — people come to casinos to tear it up. We bus in seniors by the thousands. Drugs and alcohol, nonstop consumption of cigarettes, lights, noise, spectacle!"
4."If anything, the casinos want the average gambler to continue believing there's some secret to winning that we don't want to tell them, because as long as you believe there's a secret that you might find out one day, you'll continue gambling trying to find that secret winning strategy — and spending your money."
13."After we reopened during the pandemic, the most common form of payment being used were the unemployment cards. I can’t tell you the amount of times people have told me they gambled their rent away."
14."They tend to keep the temperature at a constant temperature (I think it's around 70 degrees). The one I currently work at uses a technology that pulls the smoke straight up from the smokers to the filters, so you could be sitting a few feet from a smoker and barely smell it, if at all. I think it's a negative ionization system or something like that. For it to work, the air must constantly be moving and replaced with fresh air."
