Alcohol Abuse In Montreal Casinos

In Canada, alcohol could be a new hot topic to save what has already been presented in the past on the ban on cigarettes in gambling establishments.

“Maintain the rules”. This is what the regional management has put forward with Doctor Horacio Arruda. The minister’s plan is to propose a new law that would allow alcohol to be allowed in play areas. Until now, consumption was only permitted in bars and restaurants. The minister’s plan is to now offer alcohol on the gaming tables. The new regulation has not yet been adopted, but it is already controversial.

If alcohol is not digested, it often passes through blood vessels and all parts of our body. The drunkenness is there and the lack of rationality leads to abnormal behavior in some players. Drinking a large amount of alcohol therefore causes a high blood alcohol level. This is what the public health authorities wish to avoid, but not the minister.

“ Alcohol can lead to decreased alertness, loss of self-control which can lead to violent behavior or even worse to suicides. Authorizing this regulation would entail an enormous risk for certain players ”declared the regional health directorate.

In addition, several surveys have shown that a person who gambles and drinks alcohol can significantly bet much more and bid more easily when he is on a gaming table. The government tries to defend itself by retorting that consumption exists. already in other establishments and in some casinos in America and that none of this has happened yet.

However, doctors and the opposition do not believe it and it still remains to be proven.

A player testifies: “ I am a player and I have the opportunity to come and play at the casino. I go to the bar and restaurant and there is alcohol. The croupiers make sure that alcohol is not on the gaming tables. And when there is an overflow, the croupiers make sure that people are consuming in a reasonable way. The law, whether it passes or not, it will not change anything. Croupiers are trained for this kind of misfortune and no overflow is likely to interfere with the atmosphere or the image of the casino. ”

Another player adds “ […] It is certain that alcohol could have an impact on the game. The manager knows it and it is moreover for this reason that the players drink at the bar and then come to play. Alcohol still remains in the blood. Nothing changes  ”

In any case, after several tax calculations, casinos could see their turnover increase by 40 to 70 million dollars between 2014 and 2015 if the regulations are passed. The financial profit generated is considerable and indeed shows that the impact of alcohol plays an important role on the game.
