Question about casinos and hubpages.

    I have read other posts that claim that hubpages does not permit hubs on gambling. Does that also include the forums?

    My question really isn't about gambling, it is about casino's in general. We just had a new one open here in Michigan, and the attendance has been so incredible that they actually had to close the highway, because the exit near the casino was at a stand still.

    They also had a report on the local news that the casino was being watched by the county fire marshal, and they were counting everyone that was going in and out. With something like 500 people waiting outside to get in. That's really bad!

    I personally wouldn't have waited to get in. Just wondering what everyone thinks about it.

      Sometimes I go just for the buffet. But, this new casino apparently doesn't have one. They lose customer points for that!!

    I used to love going to casinos. Even if you had no money or didn't want to play the tables, you could watch while eating the free sandwiches and coffee they used to give you. Better than stopping off at a cafe where you had to pay!

      I've never seen free food at a casino. Well, the one in Manistee gives away bags of popcorn, and they give away free soda, but not food. The popcorn is so loaded with salt all it does is make you thirsty. Once you drink enough of the free pop, you spend a good portion of your visit in the restroom.

      They do this, because they want to keep you moving. If you spend enough time at the machines, you might eventually find one that pays off.

        I've only been to a couple, but both give free (alcoholic) drinks.  Drunks will spend more.

          They don't give out free alcohol at any of the casino's I have been to. I think the only time I ever saw them doing that was on Halloween, and New Years.
          They also gave out Champaign.

          Halloween at Soaring Eagle in Mount pleasant was a trip. It was halarious to see guys dressed up as playboy bunnies playing the slots. Mixed in real good with the priests and guys dressed up as nuns! There were some really cool and wacky costumes for that.

    I live in a area with 2 casino's in it, they have never offered free food, they do give free coffee/tea but only if your sitting at a machine or table, if your just walking around you have to pay for it...These 2 casinos are always busy, funny thing every time I go, which isn't all that often I never win anything, so are all these other people winning or just losing?

    I've dealt Black Jack, Roulette, Pai Gow, Craps, Poker, Let It Ride, and numerous other games in casinos. I still work as a dealer sometimes. Good money.

    I have never gambled and have no interest in gambling. There's no way I would risk money I worked for on a gamble.

    Many people love gambling.

    Absolutely beyond me. I have no understanding why anyone would want to lose their money.

      That must be a very interesting job.

        Not so much. Many of the dealers are just gamblers in disguise. Coincidence in the gaming environment is fascinating, though. I've never worked in a casino where 'inhouse' cheating takes place, although I've witnessed players taking the house.

    Yeah, that's usually the reaction to a new casino. The casinos near us in RI and CT have really felt the recession and have laid off staff. So they aren't as recession proof as once thought.
