Casinos Do NOT Pump Oxygen Into the Air.
« on: October 08, 2014, 03:11:45 AM »
From time to time I come across some absurd stuff.  Recently, on the blog section of this forum, I read where someone claimed that oxygen is pumped into the casino.

This is straight up nonsense.  If you were to add oxygen to the air you would create a big fire hazard with all of the smokers.  Casinos never have, and never will add oxygen to the air in the casino.

Hi Real,

Thanks for your comment.
You are probably correct and that point will be corrected in the article. However a good word about the time and the thought that went into writing it would also be welcome, before (or after) critisizing it :-)
Here is the original article about why all kinds of gamblers lose, well worth reading IMO:
Understanding the types and mechanics of losing in gambling.

Btw, the myth does have a starting point. I believe ground zero comes from Mario Puzo’s book, Fools Die, where the practice of pumping oxygen was written by Puzo regarding the mythical Las Vegas casino Xanadu. I guess your friend translated this fictional work into reality, but hey, Colin, maybe casinos one day will try decreasing the oxygen to disorient the players even more than they already are.

If Oxygen smells like body odour, they defiantly pump it into my casino.

I believe , legal casinos does not do. It is possible to add a gas to feel you more comfortabel. In commerce it is usual to add stuf to influence your behaviour.

Use of different aroma via airconditioning to soothe, de-stress or to just make the place feel good is common in hospitality and entertainment industry. Nothing illegal abut it.
