With the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas this week, many new casino games and technologies are on display. Once again the technology to allow a player to insert a credit card in a slot machine is a topic. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Would you like to be able to insert your credit or debt card directly into a casino slot machine to play? Why or Why Not?
Reader Poll Replies:

I really like the idea of being able to use my credit card in a slot machine, it is as good of idea as when they did away with coins in slot machines, it just makes it a lot easier to play.  Linda M  FL

Using a credit card in a slot machine might be to easy for me, not sure I have that much will power to remember when to stop playing.  It would be an interesting challenge and maybe I could use a card with a lower limit to control my spending.  Wayne Vickers  SC

Good question. Personally, I would avoid it. The mechanism of stopping at an ATM conveniently located in the casino, and playing until your wallet is empty, would seem to be the best regulator. Allowing a card reader to suck the money out of your bank without getting out of your seat is a dream come true to the casino, which means it is not in the interest of the player.  You need to have your buddy there to hold your seat and offer the wisdom of not going to the well, to make you think about shaking the money tree.  Again. On the other hand, its only a matter of time before this machine pays off, and it would be a shame to see someone sit down there while you are buying more cash, and take your jackpot...  Don Bartley

Right to the point. no way Jose. I don't even like bringing my credit card with me. but do cause of the room charge. the cash I bring is my fun money. I don't want to loose it but if I do I do. bringing a credit or debit card for use is asking for trouble. lets get even. ever hear of that phrase? bet you have. if you didn't and this credit card thing happens you soon will.  Ralph DiDomonic

* Guess it would be okay to insert credit card in machine. Have a nice day.  Margaret Smith

* This would insert an entirely new meaning into the "lost credit card" problem. Or how many times are "players cards" left in machines now?  What would happen if someone left a credit card in a machine? We would all pay one way or another.  I love Las Vegas and I love to gamble but this is a problem we do not need.  fergie2065

^ I like technology and I am all for ease and convenience, but not sure when I mix alcohol and an easier way of spending money that the temptations may out way my will power.  So I guess I am not in favor of this type of modern convenience.   Robert S.  Tulsa OK

Sure, I like the idea, anything to speed up the process of feeding bills into a machine and most of the time they do not accept them on the first try.  Sylvia Williams CA
