Six Things You Should Never Do at a Casino

If you're a regular at casinos or are planning your first trip, check out this list of the top six things you should never do at an offline casino.

I never thought gambling could be so fun. The first time I ever went to a casino, the whole thing seemed a little intimidating. But, I soon found the thrill. I’m by no means a gambling addict, but I have come to love the “sport” and I’ve learn a bit about playing in a Casino along the way. Read on for a list of the top ten things you should never do at an offline casino:

1. Don’t ever believe the drinks are free. First, you’re dropping probably 20-50 bucks in the time you wait for the waitress to return. Then add her tip, usually a dollar, or she won’t be returning to see if you need a refill any time soon.

2. Don’t listen to the dealer in most cases unless he precedes his statement with “house rules”. House rules are the rules the casino has to play by (such as you should never split Kings in blackjack) and they’ve spent thousands of dollars deciding what gives them the best edge. So, a house rule is usually a good one. But, dealers are trained to make you have fun and have a good time – and to make sure you keep spending money. They may offer you “friendly advice” – but before you take any of it, ask them what the “house” would do in the same situation. Better yet, look up strategies on games like blackjack and roulette before going (You'll find a great interactive one here for online blackjack).

3. If you’re a woman, never carry a purse. Nothing brings a fanny pack back in style faster than sitting in front of a slot machine looking for somewhere to stick your purse.

4. Don’t stick around at a cold craps table. Call it superstition, call it whatever you like, but I’ve tried various craps strategies and the only sure fire thing I’ve seen happen every time I’ve played is that when the table goes “cold” (a term used to mean it starts losing a lot), it stays cold. If a craps table has a hot run and a few sevens in a row come out afterwards, pick up your chips and find a new table or grab some lunch.

5. Don’t play without your player’s card. Remember that almost all Casino’s have players cards which keep track of how much you gamble. A variation of things such as money spent per hand, time spent gambling throughout a day, etc. contribute to gaining points, but even smaller gamblers can usually score a “free” lunch after a weekend of gambling (see #1).

6. Don’t play if you’ve been drinking. By far, some of the biggest losses I’ve seen (and incurred myself) were after the player had downed a few drinks. Granted, the casinos aren’t supposed to allow obviously intoxicated customers play – but your definition or drunk and they’re definition of “obviously intoxicated” may not be the same. Gambling is like any other sport – best done when sober, possibly dangerous when not.
