As I told the players in last weeks poker game, I went to Tunica MS Casinos this past weekend with my girlfriend.
I play poker, blackjack, craps, and possibly some pai-gow poker to pass the time.
Girlfriend plays slots, 100% of the time. She is smart girl, and plays some chip and giggle poker ($5 buy-in sit-n-gos home games). We played some mock games of blackjack and she understands the fundamentals. She has played craps with me at a casino many years ago.
But she does not do anything but play mindless slot machines. She basically played non-stop from 10 am to 12 midnight Saturday. I was with her for about 10 minutes at one point and I was absolutely bored to tears.
Obviously she is not alone, as most of the casinos patronage is on the slot machines and not at table games.
So what is about slot machines that can make reasonable normal people stay hours and hours and hours.
Mods, I think this is a game room topic and not IMHO, but I defer to your judgement.
