Sorry, but IMHO kids do not belong in a casino atmosphere.


While most of us would agree, that's irrelevant to this discussion. The OP brought kids for non-gambling purposes and got treated badly because of it. Period.

Thanks, DJ.

I wanted to share a dinner with the family, particularly since I am not going to eat $165 in food at one sitting. So, it made sense to me.

As other posters point out, there are some casinos where families are welcomed. Certainly, you wouldn't argue that families shouldn't be brought to Circus Circus -- or is that indoor amusement park with the kiddie rides just for show.

And just about every casino in AC has a family fun arcade.

Op, just curious but are there signs at all that say no kids or anythung? If I were you I would send corporate an email explaining what happened and how unhappy you are. Include your players card number if you have action enough that they might care.

Good question. I don't know why but "A day at the races" is considered a family event - kids are welcome.



Why wouldn't it be?

I bring my kid to casino restaurants all the time. Of course I don't bring him on the gaming floor. But sometimes you have to go very near the casino (right next to it) to get to certain restaurants. I've never once been bothered by security. Kids have every right to go to a restaurant. If I'm staying at a casino hotel, what's the kid supposed to do stay in the room all weekend? He's gotta eat. Now granted Harrah's Philly (which by the way is fooling no one, it's still in Chester..shudder), is not a hotel. But you have every right to go eat there with a kid(s). There is a limit of course. No kid should be out at 2am, which I've seen some people do at casinos. But I don't see any issue going to eat. Yet another reason not to go to Chester.

Yeah, for those commenting on kids out at two am, this all happened about six or seven in the early evening.

I think that whole set-up is kind of crazy. Not one of Jay Sarno's better ideas. Call me old-school if you must but that is my position.

OK ...I had your back man. I just said I draw the line at the people I see out with their strollers and kids at 2am. See it in AC all the time.

I love to gamble and have a good time. Some parts of society see gambling as degenerate. I kind of find it hard to see why taking children around a casino and expose them to an arena where people are imbibing in a generally -EV event and allowing them to believe that they are seeing what children might perceive as adults having fun playing games (and spending money). Kids play video games (that cost no money) and have fun. Playing games is fun and adults are having fun. There is a cost when it comes to gambling. There is no cost when it come to video gaming. Children don't realize there is hard earned money at risk when they see adults gambling. But I play video games with Dad/Mom. Dad/Mom is having fun playing that game, I want to play it too. When I am old enough, I am going to play that game and have fun.

Kids need time to be kids and learn life as they go. Do they need to be influenced by casino play like they are influenced by video games? A baby sitter is completely appropriate when visiting a casino. If someone can afford to visit a casino, then they must have enough money to spend on a babysitter so the adults can have their time for relaxation.

I don't know what Atari 2600 games you are playing but when I get my kids their Xbox and PlayStation consoles, add-on controllers and individual games it most certainly costs money.
