Maybe I am getting old and crotchety, but I realy am getting annoyed at the volume of the music in some of the casinos. I played all over the strip and downtown this week. At the Gold Coast the music was so loud the stick could not hear me to book the bet correctly and I was standing two people away from her. I had to repeat it about 4 times before she got it right. ANother time at the Flamingo, a new player was asking the dealer questions and the player could not hear the answers. I had to answer for the dealer - kind of a whisper down the lane type thing. I like the party atmosphere, but at some places it got realy annoying.
