Sounds of Las Vegas, or Rather, Inside a Casino

This week I spent a few days in Las Vegas attending a work function. The event was held at the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino/… I don’t gamble much at all but I was amused by the sights and sounds while I walked the ~mile from my hotel room to the conference center. Naturally, one must navigate myriad gaming devices along the way, each with some flashy system that attracts and entertains the gambler. Some are cheesy, some are even a bit clever.

I used my phone to record some sounds as I walked around among the slot and video machines.
