Why can't casinos have volume controls?

They are pretty much all guilty of this, though MG casinos like Ladbrokes and 32 Red are the 'worst' in that they have the maximum volume 'goodbye' message you have to tolerate. You can't shut their software without them announcing loudly that you've just been playing there.

I can't think of many other kinds of software that absolutely force you to endure their maximum volume audio whims, and it's annoying (especially after a losing session) to have a voice ringing through the room rubbing it in.

Surely it wouldn't be hard to have proper volume controls within software and not have to be riding the windows volume control all the time, to cut out e.g. Patsy Kensit's booming, excited response to the dealer pulling a Blackjack against your 21.

Actually you can adjust the volume on MGS by clicking on the small speaker icon in the top right corner. You're right though, there's no way (that I know of) to prevent the annoying welcome and goodbye messages (other than adjusting your Windows or PC volume).

I can imagine that a big loud "WELCOME TO THE CASINO" and "THANKS FOR PLAYING" could, indeed, be a problem for some people... ;)

Yep, when you decide to use your HTPC and its connected to your tv and surround sound system, scaring the absolute s#%$ out of you.

Then you cop a blast from partner because she was apparently sleeping when some woman started yelling in our lounge room.

LOL,,,,The LAST thing you want after a crappy losing session is the cheesy biotch chirping out 'thank you for playing, goodbye!' when closing the casino......:axeman2: :axeman2:
