FREE ADVICE TO GROW YOUR CASINO BUSINESS

  This advice is for the casino Chief Executive Officer and the Board of Directors.  Why?  Because there are many incompetent casino General Managers being employed who are ignorant and uneducated when it boils down to customer satisfaction.  These  ignorant managers will drive a casino to its knees with lost sales and potential and many casinos have gone out of business by sowing these seeds of destruction.  Don't let it be your business!  Get smart.

   Most all casinos have a restaurant so click on our free article, "Free Advice to Grow Your Restaurant Business."  Print it out and use it.  Give it to  your accountable restaurant manager and your General Manager and make sure you see results, not lip service! 

"Management is so busy running a broken machine to make a profit instead of fixing the machine so

it can automatically hum all the way to the bank."

  Many of these suggestions are basic and common sense, but common sense is no longer common in management.  Management has fallen to intolerable levels of gross mismanagement and incompetence to a hellish degree.  They don't even care about their customers.  One by one you will see more casinos go out of business because they are not accommodating their customer's desires, but somebody else will win their votes, those who know how to please the casino player.

"People expect to lose money in a casino, but they dislike casinos that are hostile to their needs."

bullet

Out of Balance Casino - You may be surprised to hear of this term, but many casinos are totally out of balance.  What does this mean?  It means the ambient noise level is intolerable or set to insane thresholds that drives your customers away. 

bullet

Automated Music Volume - This is an ambient noise measuring system that is set at a minimal level and as the noise level rises in the casino the music volume increases to catch up.  The problem is this.  The system does not work.  It upsets players, gives them a headache and they leave.  Loud music is the best way to drive customers out of your casino.  It can actually make them ill and force them to their hotel room for the night.  Keep in mind, that people come to play the games, not listen to music.  It the machines and tables that make money, not the disk jockey.  You run a casino, not a concert.  Do not lose this prime focus.  It is amazing how many have!  Set the music volume level to soft levels, not loud.

bullet

Quiet Zones - Here you can dedicate a portion of your loud casino to a quiet zone.  Why should the entire casino be an intolerable noise-pit?  Section off some areas that do not have loud music or zero music.  See what happens.  Put up signs "quiet zone" to promote the environment.

bullet

Splash Over - Make sure casino noise does not invade your restaurants.  People do not want to hear other people winning when they have lost their shirt.  It is also a noise they are trying to escape from for a little peace and quiet to dine in a  relaxed atmosphere.  They need to eat and rest.  Keep bombarding them with noise and they will have to leave the casino to escape.  Noise punishes the brain, even music will do it if the volume is loud and it often always is too loud.  No human is exempt.  Employees will also become irritable and not know why.  That is why there are industrial noise standards.  The casino that violates these standards is its own worse enemy... they are punishing their customers for coming into their establishment and upsetting their employees) with ongoing noise pollution induced stress.  That is insanity to make customers irritable and force them to leave. 

bullet

Balance the Sound System - Each area of your casino, depending on size and construction, retains unique acoustics.  Marble floors and mirrored walls will "echo" sound while floor and wall carpets will absorb sound.  If the speakers are not properly wired for ohms and voltage one volume for all zones will fail to work.  One section will be normal, the other section will be nauseatingly loud.  It is easy to make these correction with a rheostat type of device to be wired ahead of each bank of speakers to adjust and balance the system.  An unbalanced system just makes your casino a hell hole of gross noise.  The music can't be heard as it echoes and bounces and it just makes a bunch of noise that wears down your players... fast!

"There will be a very high price to pay if you employ incompetent management. "

bullet

Throwing Money Away - You can throw as much money as you want toward marketing, but it makes no sense to have an environment that is abusive to the players.  This only makes them leave your casino to go play somewhere else.  Cheating machines with inferior payoffs insult and rob your customer of his money.  Poor seating makes  your customer have to get up and leave.  You must take full notice of your environment.  Throwing money at attracting more and new customers is tossing money down the rat hole if you can not "retain" your customer.  Do a retention study/survey to find out where your customers, once they have arrived, migrate.  This is money better spent, especially if  you fix the problems when you discover them.

bullet

Glitter Attraction - Sure, a casino with lots of exterior glitter lighting is super advertising and a powerful attractant, but beware of interior glitter lighting.  This lighting flickers and flashes into your customer's eyes and soon they can't focus and they feel uncomfortable.   Their brain is rejecting this relentless lighting assault.  They get up and leave and you lose.     

bullet

Rest Area - Many large casinos have quiet zones with a couch or tables so guests can escape the noise and rest without having to return to their hotel rooms or worse, go to some other casino who is more sensitive to their need for some peace and quiet.  Accommodate!  Noise will drive people out of  your casino long before they would have left.

bullet

Machine Noise Levels - There is nothing worse to be sitting at a machine and hear nothing.  The sound has been totally cut off.  You can't hear the cards flip on video poker.  You can't hear the "ping" hits when playing video keno.  Then all you hear is loud music from the sound system or the machine next to you blasting loud.  All machines must have their volume set to the same volume.  Invest in a decibel meter and have your slot mechanics use them to match and balance the machines.  Everyone should hear their own machine without  undue noise intrusion from neighboring machines.

bullet

Machine Lighting - Harsh spot-lighting is a serous problem.  It reflects as a ball of bright light into the video screens of your machines.  This spotlight will absolutely hurt the eyes of your player and they will quit playing and not even know why they don't feel like playing anymore!  You need to shield your lighting with a soft plastic lens that removes the solar-bright ball of fire spot-light.  Go ahead and locate such a machine and you will see how it shines into your eyes and wears your mind dead tired causing you to quit playing.  A great way to make your customers miserable.

"Casinos advertise millions of dollars to get people to come, then they make them uncomfortable and miserable.  Go figure!"

bullet

Seat Height - Want to see a casino killer? Set your machines so high or your seats so low that your customer, when sitting down playing, must elevate the arm to reach the controls.  In ten minutes or less you will feel a seriously painful muscle strain in the arm.  Again, your customer is now uncomfortable and will stop playing and likely leave your casino.  Often, the customer does not even know why, but now you do and so should your General Manager and slot personnel.  The arm must be level to the machine at the least and preferably above the machine controls.  Try it and you will see what I am talking about.

bullet

Seat Stools - Never cut cost by inserting stools.  I have seen small and very respectable and large casinos in Nevada go out of business after they installed stools for seating.  Why? Discomfort.  Most people who gamble are elderly and have bad backs or weak muscles.  A stool aggravates their pain.  Invest in comfortable chairs with good back support with adjustable height features.  A player will play for hours if he/she is comfortable.  The moment you make them uncomfortable by loud pounding music, improper seating and harsh lighting you will force your customer to go elsewhere.  Comfort is king.  Make your customers comfortable and they will play, and play and play.  Many casinos do the opposite due to ignorant General Managers who is totally out of touch with the customer.  What sort of comfortable chair does the General Manager sit in?  Shouldn't the paying customer have comfort also?  They deserve better.

bullet

Tips on Seating - Sit in a chair while playing and cross your leg.  You will instantly feel pain if the seat back is too short as the edge will dig into your spine.  People need to shift position when they sit for long periods.  Never purchase seats until the sales person has supplied samples for testing purposes by customers, then ask the customers which seats they like the best with a written survey.  Get professional opinions by the end user!  Also have your employees test them and give you feedback.  Try to get seats that adjust in height by the end user and will swivel.  This is a wise investment because an uncomfortable player will quit playing way too soon.  The General Manager also needs to sit in the chair and play the machines so he/she can instantly feel any painful pinching or just plain discomfort.  Does the chair pitch forward making you slowly slide out of your seat?  Casinos have a comfort problem.  You are dealing with customers sitting down to play.  Do not skimp on seating.  A cheap chair will cost you more money than you realize... it can drive you right out of business.  Try putting painful chairs at your 21 tables and see what happens.  So why do that to your slot customers?  Invest in high quality chairs.  Cloth chairs tend to remain cool and are easier to repair than leather or synthetic coverings.  Set up an array of different chairs on a bank of machines and let the customers decide which they like best.  They will move them around just to sit in the most comfortable chair.  If you see customers playing musical chairs it is a strong sign you have painful seats that need to be replaced. 

bullet

Management Involvement - When was the last time you saw the General Manager found sitting down and playing the machines the customers must play?  Never?  That needs to change.  He will find broken and wobbly chairs.  Chairs that have short back supports with an iron metal brace that painfully digs into the spine.  Chairs that cut off the circulation below the knees.  He will find the music and the sound volume of other machines so loud he can't hear the machine he is playing and this equals no fun!  You need to get those General Manager's out of their plush office suites and get them into the "real world" where the customer resides.  He may even have to eat the slop the cooks are producing in your own casino restaurant.  Upper level managers need to get involved at the grass roots level so they can feel the pain and anger customers feel.  Only then will changes be made to enhance the gaming experience and enhance customer service and satisfaction.  Most players will not bother to complain as they know managers will not listen to them.

bullet

Employment Hostility - Anger boils downward from upper managers to the floor employee.  We can sense it in the air.  Customers know when employees are being mistreated and are hated.  The employee is never happy and it shows.  You can't blame them, they are human with feelings too, but this employee abuse has a long standing in casinos.  The cycle needs to be broken as it upsets the customer when they are in turn mistreated by disgruntled employees.  Morale is a management responsibility, not a privilege to abuse to feed their egos.

bullet

Foster the Locals - Do whatever you can do to get the locals back into your casino.  You need to learn why they don't like your casino.  That's right, we want to know the problems so they can be fixed.  Use the questionnaire below and make sure the actual results are read by the  Board of Directors.  Do not let General Manager's hoodwink  you with statistic results.  Read the respondent questionnaires yourself then make the changes!      

"Casinos that are in tune with customer desires will promote absolute customer satisfaction... and that is the key to success!" 

bullet

Excessive Comps - There are many players who don't give a hoot about comps.  What they really want is an enjoyable experience.  Give us some peace and quiet so we can "concentrate on the game" we are playing.  Give us a comfortable chair to sit in.  Just make us comfortable and we will be happy.  Comps are useless if the player won't play due to being uncomfortable.  All it does is cost the casino money while the player always seeks out his favorite casino to play where he is made comfortable.

bullet

Clean Machines - Make sure the gaming tables and machines are free of sticky soda syrup, fingerprint grease, ashes, etc.  Players hate touching filthy things.  Don't you?

bullet

Loud is Not In - Many casinos are loud because "incompetent" managers think louder is better, but they are sadly mistaken.  Any medical doctor can tell you what will happen when a person is bombarded with loud music or other loud noises like a excessively loud slot machine.  When the brain tires the player quits and no comp and nothing you offer them will stop them from leaving.  You have insulted and assaulted them with your loud noise and they will go play elsewhere.  If sales are going down, cut the music volume and balance the casino's noise levels.  The moment you do you will see player retention rates increase.  Noise will drive them right out of your casino, but you General Manager likely does not understand these proven and factual things.  Educate them.  If they don't comply, replace them!  Prolonged noise pollution will kill any business.  It is only a matter of time.  Casinos where not always loud.  They became loud due to ignorant managers being hired and now they copy each other to see who can have the most awfully loud casino on the strip.  It is out of control.

bullet

Parking Lot Safety - Now loud music is played in the parking lots and this raises a red flag to your customers, especially the women.  They know if they are attacked their screams for help will not be heard.  Criminals know this too, so it attracts them to your casino!  Nobody can hear the glass break when they break into your customer's vehicles.  This loud music pollution is out of control and it needs to be controlled.  Locals avoid this abuse and they don't feel safe at these noisy casinos, so you are driving customers away with your music.  Loud music in a parking lot is an atmosphere of risk and jeopardy, but your General Manager is incompetently ignorant of this danger to your customers and to your bottom line.

bullet

Random Noise - Turn off the "attract mode" feature on all of your slot and video machines.  There is nothing worse than to be comfortable playing and suddenly hear a machine begin making noise to break your concentration and ruin your fun.  It is a nasty irritant that will drive customers away.  They simply get upset, cash out and they leave.  It is another good way to say goodbye to a valued customer.

bullet

Disgruntled Slot Mechanic - This bad guy or incompetent slot supervisor can create powerful damage to the bottom line by driving away your local business customers "the locals."  How?  Easy.  Just take the fun out of playing the game.  The local people demand that they can hear the machine they play, so the mechanic turns off the machine's volume or turns it up so loud it annoys the player.  The local player also wants to be able to set the speed of play of the machine, especially with video keno and poker machines.  If the mechanic sets the speed lightening-fast it will give players a headache from eye-stress and they will quit playing and they will go elsewhere to play, permanently!  The mechanic can also put nearby machines into "loud attract mode" and set the activation frequency once each five minutes and that will drive your customers away.  Attract mode should never be used as it interferes with a players concentration.  Casinos have gone into serious financial trouble just from the "get even tactics" of disgruntled slot mechanics with a chip on their shoulder.  Your slot supervisor should be checking these machines, or else! 

"An improperly run casino cheats its playing customers.  The General Manager and Board Members don't even realize it."

bullet

Machine Lighting - Make sure no bright lights near or above the machines (marquee) are flashing into the screens of your video machines and slots.  Flickering lights look nice, but they can make it very hard on the players eyes as "eye-strain" creates a silent tension headache.  The player does not realize what is happening, but they just feel ill and need to stop playing and leave.  Make sure the machine's play button lights are not bright.  This is a trend that seriously and adversely affects the player's eye focus.  It really is a game killer and your mechanics need to place some opaque plastic or a thin layer of paint on the switch undersides, so they will softly glow without casting a bright "flashlight effect" into your customer's eyes (or change the bulbs to a lower wattage if not LED's).  Go ahead and play one of these machines and see how long you will last.  Not long at all.  Now ask yourself why your General Manager does not know or even care about these things?  It is time to hire professionals with hands-on "real world" experience.

bullet

Equitable Payoff - Don't cheat your customers.  Once they catch on (and they will) you will lose thousands of dollars from tens of thousands of people as they will not ever return your casino again.  You can even go out of business (it happens).  Example: On video poker a full house should pay 40 to 45 coins, not 30.  A three of kind pays 3 coins, not one or two.  Get rid of all games that employ these cheating payoffs.  Once a customer is cheated he will despise your casino and tell everyone to badmouth and to stay away.  Do a serious survey to locate these machines.  Also, get rid of those machines that pay nothing of value when a player gets a four of a kind, like paying 125 or 250 coins for the high aces or the 2,3 and 4's.  These machines tells everyone not to play at your casino.  You may profit from the tourist fools who are not savvy, but in the end it will catch up to you in a very bad way.  

bullet

Sequential Royal Flush - These machines are attractive to locals and the serious player, but do not compensate by reducing the sub-pays for a chance to win a rare jackpot.  Players know better and will avoid the machine and your casino for cheating them.  Also, have your slot mechanics (or other employees who play, test and inspect these machines on a routine basis) examine payoff equity.  This is called a denominational drifting payoff.  Example: a nickel denomination with ten coins in (fifty cent play) should pay equal to a dime denomination selection with five coins in (fifty cent play).  The game is the same and the cost is the same, but more and more casinos are cheating their customer and instead of paying 2,000 coins on four aces will pay only 1,400 coins on the nickel machine.  Not just the aces.  The lower payouts are across the board down to the full house on video poker.  Players do see these things and they start to hate your casino for attempting to cheat them and other innocent people.  It is cheating!  

bullet

Old Machines - Get rid of those old machines nobody likes to play anymore.  Do not waste your floor space.  Divest in those dollar slots few people want to play.  It is better to have a bank of nickel and dime slots and video machines packed with players than to have an entire bank of dollar slots nobody is playing.  Do the math.  Find out what your customers want and then give it to them.  The locals like double-double bonus poker machines in nickel and dime denominations, so oblige them.  They will pack the area solid with players. 

"Arrogant and prideful managers will not stoop to consider customer satisfaction pays his salary."

bullet

Changing Management - If management is rotating in and out too much the casino is in trouble and they think it is their management when all along a loss of business is a clear sign the players don't like what you have to offer.  It is common to see these seeds of destruction printed here in this list and yet management is blinded to them.

bullet

Monetary Denomination - Multi-denomination machines should be truly multi-denominational. It is a waste of floor space to have machines that will not take nickel, dime, quarter and dollar denominational selection choices.  Not everyone wants to play quarters and dollars so why limit your machines?  Many machines have all the denominations.

bullet

Dead Machine Menus - There are machines that the main menu will not operate unless money is inserted.  This is like trying to sell a best selling book wrapped in sealed plastic so nobody can browse the pages.  It is not good at all.  Locate and fix these machines.

bullet

Multi-game Selection - Be careful that your machines are well stacked with internal games.  It is frustrating for a customer to play video poker then only to discover 4-card keno is not on the machine.  Pack the machine with games.  Stop crippling sales by limited player choices.  The customer needs variety and will search the main menu screen for a choice.  Make sure there are choices available.  Often the machine is crippled in some manner.  Another frustration is to change monetary denominations only to find the same game has been deleted.  The  player wanted to bet more and now can't do so.  That is not conductive to accommodating the player's desires.   All the machines on a bank should have the same menu game selections.

bullet

Soft Drink Station - Consider installing a few self-serve soda and coffee stations.  This way your paying customer does not need to wait forever for a drink on a hot day in your crowded casino.  This takes the pressure off the waitresses so they can better serve the table players with less stress and more tender-loving care.  Everybody is happy.

bullet

Customer Respect - Go out of your way to make customers feel welcome.  If you must, get someone to do the welcome to our casino greeting.  Casinos have slipped here and by bringing back customer satisfaction everyone is happy.  Tell your employees to smile more.  Too many appear glum, grim and appear to be rude or will not give a player the time of day.  Remember, Walmart does this for good reason, because other stores don't and Walmart gains market share by customer loyalty and satisfaction. 

bullet

Beware of the OEM - You would think the OEM who makes the gaming machines would make the best product for the player, but they are often grossly wrong.  They have created cheating games with grossly low paying payoffs.  They have made machines with fixed seating that you can't even cross your leg or move about in the chair to gain comfort.  They have seats that are terribly painful to sit in that protrude into the spine.  There even have machines with sharp razor-like metal edges that cut/scrape fingers when playing (something your slot dept needs to address, but they too are oblivious to the problems players face).  They ship machines with the volume leveling chip disabled so now you are stuck with a machine you can't lower the volume.  Beware of the OEM.  Make sure your buyer and slot dept inspects the machines by playing them to insure comfort, sound level, smooth operation.

bullet

Fix the Beat-up Machines - Don't leave a video machine with a worn out fuzzy and hard to see blurry image on the television tube.  Nobody is going to play it and it says, "We don't care to fix our machines for your enjoyment." Fix or get rid of them and install a new machine.  The machines are the money makers.  Casinos will spend more money on visual things that look pretty or by investing in useless loud sound systems instead of focusing on gaming... the core of the business.  Gaming generates income. 

"Every manager needs to be educated to all phases of customer satisfaction and harmful environmental conditions."

bullet

Disabled Speed Control - Activate the speed control on your video machines.  Many players hate to play at fast speed.  It is also bad for business as fast play only works against the casino and the player as mental fatigue sets in rather quickly and the player tires and quits playing.  Both the player and the casino lose.  Find those machines with disabled speed controls and fix them.  Don't let lazy and uncaring slot mechanics cripple and destroy your machines unintentionally (or by retaliation for mistreatment, etc.).

bullet

Alcohol Abuse - Be ever more vigilant not to give too much alcohol to players.  It is a good way to kill your own customers.  Your walking floor managers need to be more aware of the drink status of players with input from the waitresses.  Make sure nobody leaves drunk or impaired to drive their vehicle out of your parking lot.  Be a good neighbor to your community by being more responsible.  Consider drink limits per player per hour.  Hard liquor should even be removed from the casino.  It is a trend that needs to begin.  It is bad enough with beer and wine, but to load up hard liquor on a player is unethical and most responsible players will agree. 

bullet

Intercom Volume - Don't turn your casino into a loud industrial assembly plant.  Keep the public address intercom volume down so it is not "shouting" so loud to grossly disturb your players.  Some casinos do this and it really upsets customers.  It is unnecessary and it needs to be addressed.

bullet

Environmental Satisfaction - Consider employing, on a rotating basis, employees who for a month will roam the casino and randomly walk and play machines, to blend in with the players with open ears.  Also, to talk and coax the person to speak about the casino experience they are having.  Here  you will discover what players like or hate about your casino.  Your employees are now becoming more aware of what the player is experiencing and they are also learning how to identify environmental intrusions that upset customers.  They will discover that some machine volumes need to be raised and other lowered.  The air conditioning vent may need to be adjusted as it is freezing/overheating customers so an entire bank of machines remain idle.  All sorts of things can be found if you are willing to go look for them.  If you have a bank of machines not being played, then sit down and play and see what is wrong.  It just may be the payoffs are so bad the customer just will not play the machine or it may be uncomfortable seating.  This will pay big for the casino who takes environmental satisfaction seriously.

bullet

Big Board Keno - Many players that used to play no longer bother.  Keno halls used to be packed, but now most are just empty seat theaters.  People in the restaurant look at your keno deals and just stuff the junk back into the literature display.  They have lost interest because there is no sense of reward, but a great sense of a low payout.  The odds are with the house, yet the keno scams continue.  Give people the chance to win and they will play.  Too many casinos are copying other casinos programs and the game has died on the vine.  Bring back the old games with the low prices.  Get rid of those $5 per game tickets.  Let people play for $1 (and ten cent way tickets) all the way up to the 20 spot game.  The way it is now the keno games are a rip off with no fun for the player.  Who wants to play when to win break even you must hit four out of six numbers?  Or worse, six out of six to even win anything, which happens to be the jackpot on an all-or-nothing rip off game at the players expense.  These creative games have killed keno and it seems to be getting worse, and worse and worse.  Remember, low price + high payoffs = More Volume Play instead of No Play.   

"Ignorance is no excuse.  Train your managers to please the repeat-paying customer or you will comp the connivers."

  There is much more to be revealed, but what is on this page will certainly get you on the right tract to increase customer satisfaction, retention and profit.  I write this not to promote gambling, but to provide an industry that is out of control and is cheating and upsetting their customers and employees due to ignorant managers in the casino industry.  It is they who are ruining the gaming experience and cheating the players and ultimately cheating the principal investors.  I have seen many large casinos go out of business due to managerial incompetence.  The employees lose their jobs and the city suffers tax loss as a result.  This is my effort, free of charge, to create a more equitable system that will be fair and enjoyable to all.
