The Various Tricks Casinos Use To Keep You Playing

There is a lot of thought put into the design and the layouts of the casinos across the globe.There has been a rumour around for many years that brick-and-mortar casinos will pump oxygen through the air to keep their customers energized.

This is a myth and is not true. Casinos will keep the air nice and cool (if it is too warm, people will get sleepy and want to leave), though they won't pump anything extra into it.

There are, however, various other tricks that casinos use to keep you playing. Essential, casinos want you to forget about the outside world and the passage of time, so that you still inside of their building and continue to play.

Here are some of the tricks that they use:

1) Clocks are removed.

Have you have tried to find out the time in a casino? Casinos do their best to remove clocks or any evidence of what time it is from their walls.

2) There are no windows in the gaming areas.

In order to see windows, you will have to leave the actual gaming areas and move to the outer parts of the casinos.

Again, this is done to confuse customers as to what time it is.

If you can see outside, you will know that it is now nighttime when you thought it was earlier, etc.

3) Noise Levels are elevated.

All of the noises inside of a casino are enhanced to make it seem as though it is the absolute center of the action. The sounds of the slot machines, the hum of voices, etc., are all enhanced using a number of different methods. In addition, this is done so that people are less likely to get tired, as a quiet casino will like sap the adrenaline from people.

4) Casinos are built in a circular shape.

The harder a casino is to navigate through, the harder it will be to leave.

Casinos are purposefully built in a circular shape so that customers find it harder to leave.

5) The best stuff is found in the center of the casino.

In order to get to the slot machines and blackjack tables, you will usually have to walk to the center of the casino. Again, this is done on purpose in order to make it harder to leave.

6) Comps.

This is a tried and true method to keep you inside of the casino - free food and free hotel rooms.

Now, you will probably have to play quite a bit to qualify for these perks, though comps are frequently given out.

If you are wondering if you qualify for a comp - just ask!
