Casinos Bet On High-Tech Slots To Improve Returns

from the solitary-gambling dept

It seems that the modern gambler is a bit confused by table games, or prefers not to socialize while having their money sucked away. They’re sticking to the slot machines. In order to keep the player, and their rapidly thinning wallet, glued to those slot machines, the companies that design the machines are are getting more sophisticated. It used to be that casinos carefully planned the design of the actual building to keep people gambling – but now, even the slot machines are designed to keep you dumping in money. New improvements include celebrity slot machines that heckle you if you’re slow in spinning and even (at least in one case) smells.
