Casino are establishments offering various forms of gambling. Casinos can be found worldwide and may combine hotels, restaurants, retail shops, cruise ships or other tourist attractions into one complex. Within the United States they can be found both in Atlantic City and on several American Indian reservations where state anti-gambling laws do not apply.
Casinos employ numerous measures to keep gamblers satisfied and prevent cheating, including security staff monitoring from the floor and looking out for scams such as palming, marking or switching cards or dice; dealers have keen eyes that can spot suspicious players; pit bosses and table managers can watch betting patterns to detect collusion and other forms of cheating; while pit bosses and table managers use broad betting patterns to identify collusion and other forms of cheating; free food and drinks may keep players on property; intoxication does not reduce house edge; using chips rather than real money may also prevents trackers from keeping tabs on losses/wins as easily.
Some casinos provide slot players with a high-limit room equipped with its own exchange area to convert ticket vouchers to cash, and with butlers on staff to cater to their every need. These rooms tend to be reserved for high rollers who have amassed significant comps through rated play, or special events or tournaments taking place there.
