Coinless Slots

15 October 2004

Dear Frank:

With the introduction of the coinless slots, I think the casinos are pushing the limits of greed. Will the jingle of the coins in the slots disappear from the casino scene? This is one of the great attractions of the casino.

Now it seems to be pure greed. It is too much trouble and too expensive to mess with coins? I can see the "pigs" walking around in the casinos!

Pretty soon the machines will be wired to deposit the proceeds right into the bank!! That will be less trouble!! It is only me or do others think that the fun is being taken right out of the casinos?

Dear Leroy:

The problem is that all modern casinos must show increase in profits from year to year or the executives, who are all looking to move on to other jobs, higher jobs, usually in other casinos, will lose their current jobs. So the casinos are always looking to increase the volume of play and the amount of the minimum bets people will make. Coinless slots eliminate the coin attendants and can increase volume by eliminating the "annoyance" of using coins. People will play what they are trained to play and the casinos are training them to play slots that don't make the loud coin noise. The casinos will substitute music or other special effects that don't slow the games down. Is the fun being drained by greed? The consumer will speak on this.

All the best in and out of the casinos!
