Casinos often employ shills in order to create an environment of fun and excitement for customers. Shills are outgoing people who are paid to sit in the casino and play casino games. When shills are on duty, customers experience a livelier casino floor and are more likely to play casino games and to play for longer periods of time. Although casinos retain any money that shills win in card games such as poker, they allow shills to keep any money they win at slot machines while they are on duty. Therefore, shills should be able to keep any money they win playing "Chicken," a new game in which a live chicken chooses the cards that a player will receive.

The conclusion above would be drawn more logically if which of the following premises were to be added to the argument?


A) Winnings from card games are generally larger than winnings from slot machines.
B) Employees are more likely to win at "Chicken" than at slot machines.
C) Card games attract more gamblers to casinos than do slot machines.
D) In the experience of most casino owners, "Chicken" is more marketable than slot machines are.
E) In terms of the amount of luck versus skill involved in winning, "Chicken" is more nearly comparable to slot machines than to card games.

As per the argument:

Shill Plays card game -> doesn't get the winning amount.

Shill plays slot m/c-> gets the winning amount.

Shill plays chicken -> gets the winning amount.
That means chicken n slot M/c are similar in a way.

Only option E provides that information. Hence correct.

E is the clear winner here. It compares the 'Chicken' Game with the Slot machines in terms of Shills keeping the winning amount with themselves.
