I come into the casino today, the music is blaring so loud. Bass low, but loud. I started getting nervous and couldn't settle down nor concentrate. This casino just drives me crazier by far than any other I've been to. I can't even understand the music most of the time, I latch onto it for a bit then lose it. It gets to me, the feeling I have is like the same feeling I would get if I was being berated. I'm theorizing what the sound system really is doing, The possibilities I gather, they're playing multiple copies of the same music fractions apart and maybe throwing in random noise and sounds. Even in an empty casino with no people, I've felt the same way there when they blared the music loudly, nervous, mentally confused, and agitated.

I'm not a licensed psychologist, but from the way you are describing this, you might have other issues going on.

When the New Orleans casino opened they had some good VP at the bar. Unfortunately, they had a very loud washboard band that played the same stuff over and over. It was torture, a sense of relief came over me whenever they took a break.

P.S. Don't ever visit Hard Rock LV on a weekend.

When in Laughlin, I play The Trop Express late at night simply because they play my music.
Same thing at the Emerald island. They play some XM station that just hits my sweet spot.

OK, the D and Hard Rock. What else to avoid?

Yeah you too buddy. Seriously choke on a **** in a **** ****ing contest. How else do you expect me to communicate feelings when it's hard to explain. No wonder they left you stranded.

Panic attack?

I did get positive feedback from my acquaintances regarding the noise. They also think it's something unusual to the joint. It's simply put reverb I think, but the effect isn't obvious. I dont really understand what a panic attack, is, but I can say I did panic and I could sense my blood pressure was up. It's just so stupid to have loud music but yet you can't really hear it. The bass might not be there but the treble is at 11.

I apologize if you took offense to what I said. It wasn't meant to be serious, or I wouldn't have followed it up with the bad noise experience I had, or advice not to go to HR on the weekends.

You most likely have anxiety and the music is triggering a panic attack. Everything you describe points to a panic attack. Pop a Xanax or avoid that place. You will never find me in a Walmart. 😜
