Wiki Version:
<p>Interest in research around human casino behavior has increased over the last decade. Spenwyn et al. (2010) examined factors that might impact gambling behavior and found red lighting paired with fast tempo music led people to play faster and bet larger. Casino blackjack tables are typically covered in felt of a single color, but there is a paucity of research about how these colors impact gambling behavior. The current study investigated whether the use of common casino table colors presented in an electronic setting led to differences in blackjack betting behavior. 90 participants were randomly assigned to a red, blue, or green blackjack table and played a series of 10 blackjack hands. Microsoft PowerPoint slides simulated an online casino with blackjack as the active game. Participants recorded the amount of each bet ($5-200). A one-way ANOVA (ɑ = .05) showed no significant difference in average betting amount by table color condition (p = 0.61). These results indicate blackjack table color does not impact betting behavior in electronic settings. It is suggested future research examine how betting behavior is impacted by other table colors and the factor of player expertise.</p>
