Christmas Just Another Day For Casinos and Their Workers

"What better way to relieve the stress of the holidays than to come enjoy the casino for a couple of hours," said Mike Blintz, a dealer at a South Florida casino.

Christmas is a day when no matter what your religion, there is a good chance that your place of employment is closed. One of the only exceptions is casinos, where it will be business as usual.

Casinos make their money all year round. They do not follow the schedule of any government, or of normal everyday people. So when it comes to Christmas day, it is no surprise that most casinos are open for business.

In Ontario, government operated casinos are open today. The fact that there is a demand for their product, even on this most holy of days, super cedes family time for the casinos employees.

In the United States, just as in other countries, most casinos remain open to cater to the demands of the public. "Most people on Christmas day spend the afternoon with their family, then when they are finished with the family, they want to relieve stress. What better way to relieve the stress of the holidays than to come enjoy the casino for a couple of hours," said Mike Blintz, a dealer at a South Florida casino.

Although it lends little comfort to casino employees, most of what Blintz says is true. That means that the demand is there and when money can be made, it makes it hard for casinos to close their doors.
