UK Government to Ban Psychological Tricks in Casinos

Image result for UK Government to Ban Psychological Tricks in Casinos

“They will be run according to
British rules and we’ll simply not allow any tricks which people are subjected
to unawares and which increase the risk of problem gambling.” One tactic used
in the US is simulating daylight during night-time to lull players into
remaining at the tables and slot machines. Casinos also frequently offer free
food, drink and hotel accommodation to keep punters betting.”
I have my own personal
daylight simulators right here in my home, except I call them lights. Next
thing you know the government will be banning other popular psychological
tricks – like advertising, the National Lottery or democracy.
We can but hope.
