There are several arguments against the idea of a magician being banned from a casino. One of these arguments is that casino gambling is a way of socializing and relaxation. Most of the people who play cards at a casino are there for a friendly game. If a magician visited a high stakes poker game, the odds would not be very good that he could pull off tricks that were of interest to the general players. This is not so true when talking about the smaller card games that most people play in a casino. The people who play roulette, craps, baccarat and other low stakes games are there for more socializing and relaxation than to get rich quick.
Winning Consistently at a Casino
Another argument against magicians being banned from casinos is that they could lose their ability to perform due to the new rules laid out for the 2020 season. The new dress codes for caterers and waiters at most hotels are designed to make the customer feel less self-conscious. If the customers see a magician with a bright red top and jeans, they are less likely to want to dine with him. These changes are also aimed at making the overall dining experience more enjoyable for the customer. Many of these customers are older adults who enjoy drinking and gambling at night.
It all boils down to the fact that there is no legal or moral code that states that you can only do sleight of hand tricks at specific times. This is true of all forms of entertainment. People are often banned from theaters for showing clips of shark attacks because the government considers them disturbing to the public.
This is another argument against magicians being banned from casinos. The entertainment industry is one of the largest employers in the United States. Magicians earn an average of forty thousand dollars a year and most work well into the eight figures. Some do well outside of the United States and travel around the world to work. It would be hard to find a professional magician working at a regular job. They usually have a very busy day or evening schedule and choose to work only when they are free.
