Dealing With Huge Amount Of Varying Light?

In my current work environment which is a casino. There is a huge amount of varying lighting conditions. The slot machines with all the neon lighting and various other lighting issues. My question is would it be better to have a small FOV ie; less lighting issues ..maybe or have a wide FOV and try for the best possible iris setting?
