Last week we asked about the age-old custom of not having the convenience of clocks in a casino. This week we are going to examine another ancient casino custom, windows or technically speaking the lack of windows. Yes, windows and casino gambling floors do not appear to meld together. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Do you think casinos should install any windows in their casino area so you can look out rather than feel like you are in a closed box?  What is your opinion?  Why or Why not?

PLEASE NOTE: The following text entries are the words of our readers

Casinos make me feel like I am in a dungeon, even the bigger ones and windows would be an excellent touch.  Margaret T.  NC.

 No windows . When I'm in a casino I like the feeling of being in another world.  Dee  Alpine,Ca.

Architecturally, you have to install windows on an "outside wall". Casinos by their nature have a lack of "outside walls", due to being surrounded by clubs, theaters, service counters and staff areas. Several years ago I found a Keno parlor at Treasure Island with a window looking out to a landscaped light well. It was so unique that they eventually moved the Keno. Windows don't make you gamble more, it gives no advantage for the house. Skylights and light wells might help, but again, why?  Don Bartley  Portland, OR

No, most people are focused on the games and pay little attention to windows ,also,old casinos are blocked in and the cost would not pay off. New casinos which are more spacey should incorporate the windows.  john Pierog  poland, ohio

*  Yes. Its more fun to people watch. Thats why my wife and i love Fremont St.  Ron Lee  milwaukie, Or

*   No windows please. Make the world go away. I love that when inside the casino I can't tell if it's day or night. I can't tell if it is raining, sunny or whatever. From my room I watch the sun rise over the mountains, the rain beat against the buildings, the lights of the most wonderful town in the world. But when in the casino I want to be timeless, completely at ease having a cocktail even if it's 2pm.  Judith Ketchum  Willoughby / Ohio

Yes as long as you can see out but no one can see in, there are people who are chlostophobic. I think it would be a good experiment.  Linda Brooks St.Helens,Oregon

*  Forget any windows; they would just take away from the unique kind of secrecy and privacy that the casinos now project.   Ron Brevig  Burnsville, Mn

*  No windows, no way!  One of my favorite recollections in Vegas was playing blackjack all night, then someone opens an exit door and says "Hey it's light outside"!  Richard C Gerhardt  Texas City, TX
