Why Casinos in Las Vegas Have No Clocks

Why Casinos in Las Vegas Have No Clocks

Have you ever visited the casinos in Las Vegas, Macau or Monaco?

Or maybe you've ​experienced some of that ​glamorous ​high roller​ lifestyle on display in Las Vegas from the comfort of your own couch by watching the TV show with the same name starring Josh Duhamel and James Caan?

In any case, you might have noticed most casinos don't have clocks.


It's a ploy designed to help you to forget the time and stay in the casino longer.

The longer you are in the casino, the more chance they have of winning some money off you. They want you to just lose yourself at the slot machines or roulette wheel for hours. Or until you've maxed out your credit card.

How do you beat them at their own game?

By wearing a watch. Set a time limit (an alarm would be even better) for your gambling session. Once that thing goes off, cash in your remaining chips, then head for the exit.

Which is great advice for the gym as well.

Optimally, your training sessions wouldn't last much longer than an hour.

Counting from your first work set of the day, you should be done within 60-75 minutes. Once you inch close to or pass the 90-minute mark, you'll be physically and mentally fatigued to the point where your level of effort drops like baggy pants on a street thug.

Any extra work done beyond that point will not make you stronger. Only put deeper into a recovery hole.

So keep a close eye on the clock. Just like you should when touring the casinos in Las Vegas.
