Some notes on this story:
1) This is nothing to lament about. The death of places where people lose games of chance and risk addiction is a good thing.
This is what happens when people have slightly more sense than their forebears.
2) The gentleman explaining the game is an uncharismatic bore.
3) If this industry really wanted to get people inside their doors, they should take a lesson from Nog on Deep Space 9 and create Virtual Reality Suites.
