Hi All,


This article is about casinos for gaming.


A casino is a facility that accommodates certain types of gambling

activities. Casinos are often placed near or combined with hotels,

restaurants, retail shopping, cruise ships and other vacation attractions.

Some casinos are known for hosting live entertainment events, such

as concerts and sporting events, especially boxing and party casinos.



The term originally meant a small villa, summerhouse or pavilion built

for pleasure, usually on the grounds of a larger Italian villa or palazzo.

There are examples of such casinos at Villa Giulia and Villa Farnese.

During the 19th century, the term casino came to include other more

public buildings where pleasurable activities, including gambling and

sports, took place. An example of this type of building is the Newport Casino.

In modern Italian, this term designates a bordello (also called

"casa chiusa", literally "closed house" or "party casino"), while the gambling house is

spelled casino with an accent.


Gambling in casinos:

In most jurisdictions, gambling is limited to persons over the age of

majority (21 years of age in most of the United States and 18 to 2

in most other countries where casinos are permitted). Customers

may gamble by playing slot machines or other games of chance

(e.g., craps, roulette, baccarat, party casino) and some skill (eg., blackjack, poker)

(for more see casino games). Game rules usually have

mathematically-determined odds that ensure the house retains an

advantage over the players. This advantage is called the edge.

Payout is the percentage given to players. In games such as poker,

the house takes a commission (a "rake") on bets players make

against each other. Our money refers to the situation where a

winning player is placing bets with money that has been won

from the casino.



Traditionally, casinos have had a major concentration on security.

Large amounts of currency move through a casino, tempting people

to cheat the system. Security today consists of cameras located

throughout the property operated by highly trained individuals

who attempt to locate cheating and stealing by both players and


Modern casino security is usually divided between a physical

security force, which patrols the casino floor and responds to

calls for assistance and reports of criminal and/or suspicious

activities, and a specialized surveillance department, that operates

the casino's closed circuit television (CCTV) system in an effort to

detect any misconduct by both guests and employees alike. Both of

these specialized casino security departments work very closely

with each other to ensure the safety of both guests and the

casino's assets.
