Avoid Playing with Borrowed Money
You should have that restraint in yourself that when you see you are losing, graciously step back from the game. People have known to get carried away when they are desperately betting to ‘win back’ what they have lost. In the end, they often lose a lot more, sometimes, everything they have.
That is why you need to know how much you can afford to spend in a game. Just like any other form of entertainment, allot a budget for the casino and do not exceed it. [blogoma_highlight ]The moment you start borrowing money to gamble, you are on risky ground.[/blogoma_highlight]
Playing without Knowledge
The slot machine is the easiest thing to play in a casino. You just put in your coins, pull the lever and pray for a win. The stakes are low and so are the wins, besides, it can get a little boring after a while. The table games are where the excitement is. With higher stakes, higher adrenaline and a whole lot more fun, they are what casinos are about. However, if you do not know the game, you will find yourself completely lost. Asking the dealer how the game is played may not work in your favour. To know all the rules and also some tips and tricks to better your chances, there are plenty of tutorials out there that can help you out.
Making Bad Bets
You need to know that in most casino games, the house has the upper hand, in some games, it is more than the others. While in the slot machine the house advantage can be around 15%, in games like Live Keno, Wheel of Fortune, Blackjack Hunch Play are some of the games that have a high risk of losing. That does not mean you cannot play them, it just means that you should play this games carefully. Start with lower bets and if you go on a losing streak, quit before you lose everything. Even if you end up on a winning streak, quit while you are ahead. And this brings up our next, and perhaps the biggest gambling mistake.
Yes, all we ever want is more, it is a proven fact and nowhere else is it more evident than in a casino. The possibilities are limitless and this is what gets to our head. We think we will go in a pauper and come out a king. This syndrome is further aggravated when we start to win, we get greedier. Look for smaller wins and stop betting these smaller wins in an all-or-nothing bet. Chances are, you will walk away with nothing. Winners know when to quit and the mark of a true gambling enthusiast (not addicts) know when to walk away.
