The music of a casino fulfills the function of a soundtrack for the place, and it must have characteristics that accompany the game and avoid distractions—feeling of peace, tranquility, and harmony. Although sometimes overlooked, music in casinos plays as important a role as decoration, lighting, or clothing for employees and can make the difference between enjoying a game of roulette, poker, or blackjack or feeling uneasy.
The background music
If we ask a random person, they could tell us that the best music to enjoy a poker game is the great rock hits of the70s, others will prefer the pop songs that are trending today. But beyond personal taste, casinos have to think about all their clients. The favorite music of some may be hated by others.
Casinos are noisy places by their very nature, the conversations between dealer and players, spectators commenting on plays, comings, and goings of friends with their anecdotes, and for this reason, those responsible for casinos often opt for music that alleviates to some extent the chaos from other noises. It is frequent to find muzak music, environmental themes without frights, widely used for studying, waiting rooms, shops, and the like. Jazz themes also feature catchy rhythms without overloading the sound with too many instruments, catchy notes, and relaxed for the player. Although other venues prefer the great classics of yesterday and today, such as Michael Jackson, Queen, or Madonna, although that is true, at a noticeable volume without overlapping conversations. In online casinos, they use neutral music, but within this format, it is the player’s decision to keep or mute it to listen to their favorite song list.
Games with their own sound
There are casino games with their own music and sound effects; of course, we are talking about the noisy slot machines, whose noise can only be overcome by Japanese pachinkos. The slot machines have their own music and effects that warn us of advances, bonuses, and, above all, the scandal caused by the prizes. The music of the machines usually serves the purpose of not distracting the player, unlike the effects that warn of the achieved achievements, with loud beeps and phrases.
When playing online slots, we also find sounds identical to the physical format. On the other hand, the music becomes tenser in special moments, for example, when two figures of great prizes appear, and the roller in the last row continues to work. A few seconds that will overflow emotion and uncertainty, shooting our adrenaline. Depending on the theme of the slots, music will sound reminiscent of fantasy adventures, the pyramids of Egypt, the Wild West, and even popular themes from movies or series soundtracks, for example, with machines based on Superman, Matrix, The Game of Thrones or Batman Begins.
