There’s some great value to be had when choosing which casino operator to opt for, particularly if the offer is indeed risk-free. Be sure to read the terms and conditions with such offers, however, as many require multiple bonus turnover requirements before a player is allowed to with draw any winnings.
aking advantage of some of these great bonus promotions is always a very simple process, but don’t be in such a hurry to spend your bonus money before gambling with your hard earned cash. Take your time to use up your bonus funds and learn the ropes of the games gambling you’re getting involved with.
I remember the first time I entered a bricks and mortar casino – it was like a huge carnival where the prizes were money instead of stuffed animals. I wanted to play every game they offered from the game where you try to knock coins off the edge (Flip-It) to the big huge wheel (Big Six Wheel). I had no idea about odds or what game is better than another. I didn’t care, I was there to have FUN! My money probably lasted me about 20 minutes until I was out, but those 20 minutes sure were fun!
I’m sure most gamblers have had a similar experience whether it was in a land-based casino or at an online casino. The huge selection of games can be overwhelming. The excitement to play can be tough to control, but after your first visit or two you must calm down and get a better feel for your surroundings. Don’t be dazzled by the bright lights and razzmatazz, as it’s all just part of the show which is masterfully designed to get you to spend, spend, spend!
Some gamblers never get this initial excitement under control and continue to gamble recklessly. That usually doesn’t end well. Thankfully, most respectable casino providers have excellent measures in place to detect signs of irresponsible gambling and will take strict measures to protect anyone who may show signs of gambling beyond their means. However, I’d always advise that as a responsible gambler, it is your job to learn the games BEFORE you play them. Find out what games offer the best odds and try to focus on those games.
The biggest reason gamblers don’t educate themselves to become more knowledgeable and disciplined is they believe it takes the “fun” out of gambling. Let’s be clear. If you are wealthy and have access to large amounts of extra cash, then you can have all the fun in the casino you want. However, for those that can’t afford to lose a lot of money every time they gamble, you can still have fun but you need to apply a more disciplined approach.
Gambling is – for most people – a form of leisurely entertainment. With the recent proliferation of internet casinos, millions of people now access casinos on on the internet via laptops, desktops, mobiles and tablet devices. No matter which medium you choose, the key is to maintain the entertaining qualities but increase your chance of success. Let’s go back to the Big Six Wheel. You may think that spinning that wheel is the greatest thing in the world, but the fact of the matter is it is one of the worst bets in the casino. Depending on what you bet the house edge is between 11%-24%, that is terrible. If you continue to bet the Big Six Wheel eventually you will lose a lot of money and there is nothing that can be done about it.
The good news is most casino games have ways to increase your odds and still have a good time. You don’t have to quit playing craps, but you should quit betting the hard eight and stick to pass/don’t pass line bets with full odds. If you have no idea what that means and you play craps, you’ve just proven my point. Whatever game you choose to play, educate yourself before you play for real money.Share on:
