Whether you are playing your favorite slot machine through an online casino website, or else in the real-world at a casino or other gambling establishment, you will undoubtedly already be aware of the catchy theme tunes, music and jingles heard as you play.

Music Stimulates the Senses

Real money casinos on reputable online gambling platforms understand and appreciate the importance and value of carefully selected music, not only in the games themselves, but also when initially opening the account and logging in. 

Developers of the software behind each and every online game, from slot machine games to card and even roulette and sports betting, all work incredibly diligently to create music, jingles and even quieter undertones and hints of sounds during each and every gameplay. 

Music Encourages Creativity

Just as in your local gym music is played at a high-tempo and fast beat to encourage action and energy, fast-paced background melodies played throughout the day and night in casinos serves to increase the overall feeling of a ‘night out’ and being entertained. 

Not only does music encourage creativity with the individual gambler, it also serves to help the individual brand of gambling establishment to stand out from the proverbial crowd, especially as the world of casinos is now significantly more competitive than ever before. 


Las Vegas, otherwise known as ‘Sin City’, is the ultimate place for gamblers and it can be incredibly easy to get swept up in the excitement and sensory experience casinos in Las Vegas go to great lengths to provide and sustain. 

Not only does each individual fruit machine in Vegas play its own tune and melody each and every time you press the button or pull the handle, but over the roulette table and even in the poker and card rooms, music is played, to create an entertaining, comfortable and social environment.

Las Vegas hotels and casinos also implement other various techniques alongside playing music to enhance the overall gambling experience, including but not limited to, the following:

  • No clocks on the casino floor to give a sense of infinite time
  • A lifetime ban on the non-smoking ban
  • Waitresses to the tables and machines so you don’t need to get up
  • Numerous bathroom facilities so you don’t need to leave the casino floor
  • Air conditioning everywhere
