I work in a casino as a dealer here in the Bahamas, and was wondering if you had casinos there. — Denika, Bahamas
Is there anything more garish than a casino? The bright flashing lights… the beeping of machines… the well-worn carpet… the crisply dressed attendants… and the smell of cash being spent by the bucket-load by gullible gamblers, many of whom appear to be under the delusion that it’s a way to make money, rather than being for entertainment purposes.
Gambling is legal, but heavily regulated in Australia. While there are poker machines in many pubs and clubs around the country, casinos are pretty much limited to one or two in each capital city of Australia, plus a few more in such tourist areas as the Gold Coast (Queensland). See Casinos in Australia (Wikipedia).
(Denika also asked about racism in Australia, which I’ll cover in a separate answer.)
