The Four Winds Casino in South Bend recently installed metal detectors at all entrances due to "too many guns getting through the door". The other three Four Winds Casinos in Michigan haven't done this yet. Has anyone seen this in other casinos?

I don't think I've seen it; possibly at Blue Chip in Michigan City (it's been a long time).

Are they more intrusive than the security tag sensors on the way out of a department store?
May the cards fall in your favor.

My wife's purse set it off (false alarm) and they had to search it.

Casinos will have to notify customers that they're walking through metal detectors so that people with pacemakers can avoid them.

Never heard of this, never heard of it being a problem. While there have been casino robberies they are very few. Unless you have a gang problem IMHO it is a bad idea as it will make people feel less safe.

The Las Vegas casino formerly called the Hilton very publicly installed a system that identifies guns.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

  • I feel perfectly safe when I stop for groceries in Gary.
    There's an armed security guard by the front door.

    It wouldn't shock me at all to learn that ardRo Northern Indiana (What the hck? Did they install the rest of the sign yet?) had metal detectors.

    Countless casinos around the USA have them. There are numerous reasons and install factors including that of insurance underwriters, surety companies as well as other governmental influences.

    They work more than they do not and might allow something through. But without almost everything would get through. FYI.

    For a while last year Wynn was utilizing metal detecting wands on weekends at all entrances.

    I am aware that at least Venetian X-Rays some incoming luggage that is handled through the bellmen.

    Currently Cosmopolitan allows only registered guests or those with Identity (player) cards to enter the resort on weekends.

    "No."

    They do seem to be sensitive enough to beep for metal in footwear or pockets.

    They have an aisleway edged with tensabarrier type cordons, the upright walk-through detectors like you might see at a store exit, and a security guard at the inner end checking you out if you beep the sensor, presumably with a wand type detector in the lectern style station.

    (In other news, construction seems to be going well. I think they were doing a gaming floor expansion along with the hotel construction.)

    edit: phrasing correction
