The Aces Casino Blog: "It's All Fun And Games, Until Someone Gets Hurt" -- Here's The Other Side - Addiction And The Life Of The Compulsive Gambler


We think it may be time for "just one of those times."

We'd like to take the time to stray from our perch as the top entertainment tool in the casino night party industry for just a moment, and put aside our irreverent, goofy blog ideas for just one quick moment...We can ALWAYS be hokey, fun and goofy.

This isn't one of those times, however.

Make no mistake about it -- We love our position as the top orange county casino party company on the west coast, the company known as Aces Casino Entertainment.   We love bringing up one of our favorite sayings around here (Ed. Note: Besides the companies' motto of 'this beats working,' of course) -- "It's all fun and games at Aces Casino."  And, it quite frankly IS.  The chips are fake, the dealers are encouraged to cheat for the "players," and subsequently, a good time is had by all.  That's what Aces Casino is all about.

Unfortunately, we know full well just how much these "games of chance" that people love so much can quickly become an enemy of every man, woman and gambler that can't say "no" to the lure of what they feel is the ability to win that quick and easy buck.  There's no doubt about it -- Compulsive gambling is an addiction, just as strong or stronger than an addiction to smoking, to alcohol and hard drugs, and many other addictions that tear families apart and ruin lives.

Aces Casino Entertainment fully realizes this fact.  That's why we always tell our many clients up and down this west coast of ours that we make it look easy to beat these games when we cheat for the guests.  BUT... When the games are REAL, it's a whole new ball game.  We didn't get to be the top orange county casino night party company around by just playing games. We not only teach clients just how to play these games we love; we also teach them the systems of money management, patience and time management -- "To learn how and when to quit while you're ahead. 

Sometimes, hearing the sobering words from the people that have suffered the slings and arrows of compulsive gambling is the only way to get through to people that it CAN happen to anyone. So, we thought this might be a good time to stray away from our normal blog-foolishness, and tackle a task that can harm so many people from all ends of the spectrum.  We found this segment on the world of gambling addiction and the compulsive gambler a few days ago.  Check it out, courtesy of Aces Casino Entertainment -- Your orange county casino party company leader in the area of all things gaming.  We hope you like it, but what's more, we hope it tells a story that some people might need to hear.  It's pretty interesting we hear at Aces Casino hope you like it.


Addictions, and the compulsive gambler.

We'll be back on Thursday, with what we do best -- Looking at the lighter side of life, gaming, and all things in-between.  Take care, thanks for checking out the Aces Casino Blog, and we'll see you later!
