Slots Should Slot Machines stop screaming,"Big Winner!"?

    I think they should. I remember someone who was just minding his own business playing near me won $5,000 on a Quick Hits machine at a $5 bet when he got 9 Quick Hits symbols. The machine screamed,"Big Winner! Big Winner!" Along with big flashing. A huge crowd crowded around to see. He had an uncomfortable look that clearly read, "Great. Now a bunch of people know that I won $5,000! I just might end up screwed!" I don't blame him especially with recent reports of people being mugged and robbed of their winnings. Someone even got mugged for a $50 win! O.O Imagine a $5,000 win! A guy minding his own business playing his machine got knocked out of his chair by a crowd that rushed by when a woman playing won $80,000 playing WOF. The woman was unnerved and smartly asked the Casino staff to pay her in the back in private with a check. Most people do not want complete strangers knowing they won thousands of dollars on a machine. Who could blame them(Look at my recent sentences).

    I think that "screaming" is rather part of a certain tradition rather than some rational element of a slot machine. Perhaps, to ensure the safety of casinos' guests it is better to discard from this option
