When it comes to onsite and online casino, there are certain social rules that you should live by if you do not want to look like a newbie, or simply an odd person.
Not that there is anything wrong with being an odd person, but sometimes this can lose you potential casino buddies at best, and at worst, lead to getting thrown out of the casino altogether.
But this is only in extreme circumstances. Overall, there are things you should never do in a casino for the simple reason of making sure you are being a fair player to your peers and having a great casino experience yourself.
1. Never drink too much alcohol
Obviously, heading into those gaming temples is a great excuse for a tipple, but like any place you would go to that serves alcohol, you should never overdo it in a casino.
This is for various reasons which are completely obvious, but if you want us to get into the specifics of it, you are going to be annoying to everyone around you if you act like a drunken fool in the casino house.
Being a drunken fool means yelling at people, being over zealous when and if you catch a win, and leering over the wins of others, amongst other inappropriate behaviours that you might be inclined to engaged in when you are drunk in a casino.
But, like most other places that revolve around society, there is an etiquette to follow in a casino.
2. Never learn ‘on the job’
Learning on the job, as far as it goes, is a fantastic rule to follow. Blag, get there, do good, be a pro, that is fine. It is fine because there is a small risk and a big pay off, and nine times out of 10 people who do fake it until they make it usually make it after having faked it.
But, this does not apply to a casino. The main and obvious reason is because, unlike learning on the job in the workplace, you will not be paid, instead, you are the one doing the paying and as such there is just too much to lose.
So in conclusion, at the very least have an understanding of a casino game before you put your money on it.
3. Never offer advice
This one is obviously self explanatory, but to go into detail, nobody likes that one person at the casino harassing them and ‘helping’ to explain games or give playing advice.
Go home Gary.
4. Never chase your losses
Do not do it. If you lose, you lose, move onto something more fun that you might have more of a chance of winning, because with the one you have lost on more than twice, clearly there is none.
5. Never spend more than you can afford
Set a gambling budget, stick to it, and then call it quits when that has run out so that your money does not.
