At first glance, the term “haunted casino” sounds like something stupid. Believe in the supernatural or not most of the people admit that there has to be something more to life, than what we see. All I am trying to say is that there are no atheists on a falling plane. Personally I am a Buddhist, thus I believe in karma and the reincarnation of my self. According to Buddhism after your death, and after visiting different stages of existence, your soul travels the earth before resurrecting. Like a ghost. Online casinos in the UK are seemingly ghost-free, however, you can never be sure. At least you will find some slot machines with ghost theme here.
If we suppose that there are ghosts running around on our planet who would make a better ghost than a poor soul of an excessive gambler? I suppose that casinos are the most haunted places ever. Let’s examine the relation of casinos and ghosts, which was the title of my Ph.D. thesis. So you can trust me, I am an expert of this topic.
Sticking with gambling over the grave – The cause of haunted casinos
There are many tragic stories are happening in casinos, unfortunately. While these occasions are the most popular in the US, you can find some weird characters in the UK casinos as well. Real gamblers are probing their luck, again and again, every day. Once you develop a taste for slot machines they can turn you into a sloth machine. Being a coin throwing sloth machine waiting for the jackpot is not the best way to spend your life. However, there are some people who are sticking with their favorite games even after their death.
They are watching your game
Being a ghost in a casino for a gambler’s soul is the highest rank of purgatory. Just think about it. They have to watch others playing but they are not able to put their favorite bets. In haunted casinos, you can be sure, that they are watching your game over your shoulder. The only way they can join the gambling process is by altering the outcome of the roulette wheel. Did it ever happen to you that you could not win for hours? That you got into a losing strike? Well, let me assure you that there was a poor gambling soul, laughing with greed, that ruined your game. In these cases, you can try these gambling spells to break the evil spirit’s doing.
Bally’s resort the most haunted casino in this realm of reality
If you are one concerned about parapsychology you were coming across the story of Bally’s casino for sure. The casino was previously the complex called MGM Grand. Friday, November 21, 1980, was a foggy day in Las Vegas. Despite the high humidity in the air (comparing to a usual Nevada humidity level), a fire was about to break out. The fire was caused by an electrical faulty. At the time of the fire, there were over five thousand people in the hotel, trying their fortune on the tables of Vegas.
The fire started downstairs at the casino and the restaurant area. While the fire extinguisher system was working properly, the Hotels air conditioning system was circulating the deadly fumes around the whole building. 85 people were dying that cloudy day in Las Vegas. Over 650 people were injured, including guests and employees. Most of the deaths were happening on the upper floors of the hotel in the stairwells, where the doors were closed thus the smoke concentration was the highest. Many of the victims were killed in their dream.
The cause of most death was carbon monoxide poisoning. This event was leading to the recognition that during a fire smoke inhalation is a more serious issue than flames.
The story of the haunted casino after the fire
The hotel was repaired and improved. Bally’s Entertainment was buying the facility after the renovations. The haunted casino’s name became Bally’s Las Vegas. Since then, there are many reports of ghost activities from gamblers. The soul of the ones dying in the fire trapped inside the casinos.
One of the pit bosses, John, was reporting that while he went to the toilet after one of his shifts in Septem 13, 2001, he was seeing a strange ghost-like creature heading towards the roulette room. A professional gambler, Carl, was reporting a similar issue. As he was coming out of the elevator he was seeing a foggy figure in front of him. He was surprised but everything happened so fast that he walked through the misty figure. After this, he made the biggest winnings of his life at the roulette table. He said that he felt like his hand is guided by someone else. Many argue, that Carl was possessed by a gambler spirit.
Stay safe with online casinos
Online gambling sites in the UK are offering a great variety of different casino games. No one likes to be possessed by a spirit, even if he wins the roulette. By staying home while gambling you can avoid harmful ghost activity.
