How to win at a casino might seem like a silly question. If there was a safe way to win then there wouldn’t be casinos, they all would be out of business. But there are a few tips that can increase your chances of winning, or decrease the chances of you losing. Follow the simple “rules” below and change the odds to your favour.
1. Play online
Online casinos offer lower bets, more bonuses and better odds. These are three things you can turn into advantages.
2. Put limits on your time, your budget and your winnings.
Before you start playing in a casino decide how much time you will spend there (1-2-3-4 hours), define the budget you can afford to invest, and how much you would like to win. Be realistic, everybody would like to win millions on a progressive jackpot, but in most cases doubling / tripling your money (depending on your budget) would be more than enough.
3. Don’t drink too much alcohol
Having a drink while playing casino games is something most players do. But if you want to have a clear head, stay loyal to the limits you’ve set, and stay calm when you win or lose, then don’t overdo it. Alcohol is responsible for bad choices, over betting, and takes away the fun element of playing in a casino as the player becomes obsessed with numbers, combinations, jackpots etc.
Let’s see a realistic example of how the above could apply to a casino. Suppose you open an account at Spin and Win Casino. You deposit £100 and get another £100 as a bonus, plus 10 free spins (something that wouldn’t happen in a land-based casino).
You start playing at Jazz Cat Slots, listening to jazz music and enjoying a glass of wine. You have set a time limit of one hour, a budget of £100 and a winning limit of £200.
You are having a bad day. Most of your bets are lost, and after one hour you are only left with £30 in your account. If you stay loyal to the limits you’ve set you will stop playing, minimising your loss to just £70. If you continue to play you will probably lose your £30 and your total loss will be £100. Therefore setting a limit can save you from bigger losses on a bad casino day.
You are having a good day. You are playing for an hour and you are winning £120. You have enjoyed the game, you are on your one hour limit and you’ve exceeded your winning limit of £100. If you keep your personal promise and stop playing you are a winner. If you continue to play you could win more, but you could also lose not only your winnings but your initial budget as well. Just because you’ve had a good day so far doesn’t mean you will continue to do so. Remember, in a casino the house always has an advantage.
If you are an existing casino player you will understand exactly what we are saying and you will test the above by applying them in your next casino visits. If you are a new player, start your gaming sessions by following these steps and see for yourself how control and limit setting can help you win at a casino.
Note that the same rules apply if you are a bingo player. Poker is a different story.
