The Casino Experience
Casino is a card game that can be played with 2-4 players. The object of the game is to capture cards from a layout in a specific sequence, thereby building up points. The player with the highest point total wins the game. If a pair is captured, the point value doubles. A player can also make a point by capturing the “Big Casino” (the 10 of diamonds) or the “Little Casino” (2 of spades).
Something about gambling encourages people to cheat, steal and lie in order to win. This is why casinos spend so much time, money and effort on security. Security starts on the casino floor, where casino employees keep an eye on patrons to look for blatant cheating, such as palming or marking dice. Casino floor workers are also familiar with the routines and patterns of casino games, so if someone does something out of the ordinary, it’s easy for them to spot.
In addition to the gaming facilities, many casinos have prime dining and entertainment opportunities. Some have Michelin star restaurants, while others feature performance venues for top pop, rock and jazz musicians.
Although the average casino gambler is a male over 40, females are the majority of the casino’s customer base. They have a higher income and more vacation time than men, so they are more likely to gamble. According to the National Profile Study by Roper Reports GfK NOP and the U.S. Gaming Panel by TNS, approximately 23% of adults in the United States gamble in casinos.
