The casino is a very exciting place to be, especially for beginners that are only tasting the true mobile casino gambling experience. In this case the experience can also be bewildering at first, with so many different games to play many first time casino gamblers report not being able to choose a game to gamble on at all.
It doesn’t take long to settle into the art of casino gambling, however, and many people on their first trip to Las Vegas, for example, will quickly realise what they do and don’t like. But here’s the thing: beginners are still liable to make some pretty catastrophic errors of judgement when gambling in casinos for the first time. Read ahead for 5 things you should never do in a casino.
Play American roulette instead of European roulette
We would be surprised if any casino beginners knew this, but there are actually two different types of the game of roulette readily available to the public. They are called American and European roulette, and the main difference between the two is that the former has one extra zero value than the latter.
Now, this may not sound like much to worry about at all, however it actually serves to double the house edge, and half the gambler’s chance of winning. For this reason you should never play American roulette instead of European roulette in a casino.
Sit down at a poker table with players above your level
Due to its presentation in various films and TV series’ the game of poker has become somewhat of a “cool” gambling game to play, and for this reason many beginners can be tempted into sitting at a poker table where they really do not belong.
You simply cannot sit at a poker table where you can see that your fellow gamblers are way more experienced than you are. All it will end up with is a crippling loss on your part, and the fellow gamblers licking their lips.
Do not get too drunk
This one may seem pretty obvious, but you would not believe how easy it is to get a little too drunk when casinos are offering you so many free drinks. If you are a beginner this is especially dangerous, as you can make some disastrously poor decisions whilst under the influence.
You simply cannot get too drunk in a casino, it is rule number one!
Gamble away all your lifesavings
This goes without saying, but you should never gamble with anything close to your life savings in a casino, because this is a certain recipe for disaster. Can you imagine leaving a casino with absolutely nothing to your name? All because you were silly and decided to place a few bets with your savings. It just isn’t worth it!
Stay in the casino for too long
Some people have been known to stay in casinos for days on end, however this is never something you should do, as it will only result in addiction.
