The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem says that regardless of what you may have heard, patrons aren't being bitten by snakes.

(Thanks to Don Raymond, who notes that the concept of casino snakes was explored in this classic work of fiction.)

Regardless, the odds of it are stacked in favor of the house.

Do they really not get that the term 'snakebit' means being extremely unlucky? No actual snakes have to be present.

Don ~ I'm not 100% sure that the book was fiction.

There are probably trouser snakes lurking

This pretty much guarantees that someone will soon sneak serpents into the casino.

Paging Mr Jackson, Mr Samuel L. Jackson....

I'm staying there (Bethlehem, PA) right, and I will check it myself tonight. Wish me luck. If I don't come back, call my wife and tell her that I loved her, but I always faked those orgazms.

They aren't being struck by lightning either.

Still more Snakes on a Plain.

Those looked more like plain snakes to me.

Sorry, sir, snake eyes. And teeth.

I'll see your rattlesnake and raise you a python.

I'd say it's pretty certain that there are the occasional snakes there.
Just no reptiles.

I can say with nearly complete confidence our tarts are not poisoned. Such a ludicrous rumour.
