The author comments on the bad publicity being attached to casinos. He notes an incident at the Water Club, a signature hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, where a poker player, who played for 17 straight hours, smelled and was ordered to leave the poker room. This incident was eventually leaked to the public. According to the author, casinos mostly make it into the news because of the bad things that happen to them. He says that many readers simply remember the bad things that are being said about casinos without recalling exactly which casino was involved.
