The new world of casinos

13 June 2020

ABBY: I think for aficionados of casino play the past few months have been very difficult. It has for me and that is for sure. I truly miss going to the casinos and since the epidemic I have not really ventured out very much.

CINDY: I didn’t realize how much of our leisure time was taken up with playing in the casinos. I think for movie lovers, trips to the movies or watching on your in-home theater fulfills a true need. Well, my trips to the casinos satisfied just such a need, yes, an actual need. I am not a crazy player and I am disciplined. I have my casino money aside to play with but I do love to play the games. And that has limited me during the virus outbreak. A big part of my life is missing.

ABBY: I tried to gamble online but it doesn’t have the right feel for me. I enjoy being around people. I now even like the pains in our-you-know-what at blackjack; those players who love giving unasked for advice to the rest of us. How could I miss them? But I do. The whole experience is just fun for me. I think being away for this period of time has made me see what a great mind-trip casino gambling can be.

CINDY: I also miss the smell and feel of the casino. I think it is a combination of alcohol, even the smoking, and the music, the people being excited, the cheers, the moans, the shows, the great restaurants…the whole thing. It’s a total experience.

ABBY: The virus has kept me at home because I am in the danger-group.

CINDY: So am I. I have a storehouse of masks. Right now when I go outside I sometimes wonder who might be the actual criminal inside that mask!

ABBY: I have worked out more than I usually do so I guess that’s a good thing. I’ve also eaten more.

CINDY: This may sound silly but there is a kind of emptiness the past few months and I am looking forward to getting back into play when the casinos open their doors for good. I have noticed some of the changes they are making and I am not sure that the experience will be quite the same. Crowds are bad for the virus avoidence but casinos are crowds; that’s part of the fun of it all. So I am up in the air about how it all will go in the future.

ABBY: I am guessing we are talking about the short-range future. With a vaccine and herd immunity, we will probably get back to our normal lives. And the casinos will get back to being what we all experienced as the casinos of the past. I’m hoping that is true.

CINDY: I’m hoping that is true too.

ABBY: I have been looking at some of the proposals for social distancing in the casinos and I wonder at some games, such as craps, if that can work. Even if you reduce the number of players in half, they will be right next to each other anyway.

CINDY: I think about the virus on the chips. There are a lot of aspects to this.

ABBY: I am guessing that the casino bosses are thinking about all these aspects of the games too. I think slot machines are easier than table games.

CINDY: We will see. We will see.

ABBY: Yes, we will see.
