Slot Machines at Casino

If I take my mom to the casino will it interfere with her pacemaker? She is 85. Thank you for any info as she has only had it less than month. Thank you.

Nope. Very few things will interfere with modern day pacemakers. 

Casino - perhaps not just now

Personally I wouldn't take my 85 year old Mom to a casino now during Covid restrictions, so soon after her pacemaker implant.  Is there some other form of entertainment around you that you could safely enjoy or has she specifically asked for a bit of gambling which she is perfectly entitled to do at her age?  Maybe it would be best though to take her to a casino when she is fully immunised against the virus and when it is safer to do so?  

Your Mom sounds full of life, bless her!  I wish you both well

Safe for the pacemaker?

Sure, just don't let her bet it. As Gemita said,  I'd be a little leery about covid but if she's good with the shots, I'd not get in her way except to bring up the subject. Life is more than cowering in the basement.

send me the money

send me the money and Ill go gamble it and share the winnings...wink wink...LOL

The slots wont hurt her but the pandemic will. Nothing to worry about from a pacemaker perspective, but still a very bad idea (even with the shots). 

Take $50 buy an amazon fire tablet, download a slot machine app (or two or 10 or 20), and she can play that all hours of the day and night...And she is only out $50...

No issue playing the slots

I live in Reno,NV.

I go to the mom and pop casino sometimes for dinner and drop a few dollars now and then and have had no issue with my pacer playing slots.

Enjoy life ,if it makes her happy, then so be it. 

You know you're wired when...

You have a maintenance schedule just like your car.
