Security at a Casino

A casino is a public place where games of chance are played and gambling is the primary activity. While musical shows, lighted fountains, restaurants and hotels help draw patrons, casinos would not exist without games like slot machines, blackjack, roulette, craps, keno and baccarat that provide the billions in profits that they rake in each year.

Something about the glitz and glamour of casinos encourages people to cheat, steal or lie to improve their odds of winning. That is why casinos spend a large amount of money and effort on security. The first line of defense is the casino floor itself, where dealers and managers have a close view of the tables and can spot blatant cheating easily. Casinos also use technology to keep track of the exact amounts of bets placed minute-by-minute and can quickly discover statistical deviations from expected results.

Most of the world’s casinos are large, elaborate places that rival a theme park in size and scope. They have hotels, restaurants and non-gambling game rooms in addition to enormous gaming areas stocked with everything from jukeboxes to baccarat tables. Many of these casinos also feature a variety of shows and dramatic scenery that add to the entertainment value.
