“I’ve heard stories of men making astronomical sums in the casinos; life changing stories about a single slot win; man making a couple of millions on roulette on the run. How can I be that man?” Every young man who’s ever had the urge to gamble asks himself this question. This article will teach you how to win more often than you lose.
Win big. Or not.
Ok. First, a reality check. As much as you’d like to believe that you’d win 32 trillion dollars on your first night in the casino, you probably aren’t going to win all that much. In all probability, you’d be lucky to win just a couple of dollars. So, do not set your expectations too high.
Gamblers who play high stakes and win are professionals. Yes, there are professional gamblers in this world and no, they aren’t anything like your “down-on-his-luck” friend who keeps borrowing money from you to pay his bookies. These men are self-trained experts who know their game. To them, gambling is just another day’s work and they have trained vigorously to become professional gamblers. They know their art and you won’t be able to pick their moves on your first weekend in Vegas. If you are lucky to meet one or indeed be friends with one, you could pick up a few pointers, but do not expect to win big immediately.
Another thing that you need to keep in mind is money management. You must decide how much you are going to spend in the casino. Set a limit. Decide for yourself that you are not going to spend over, say, three hundred dollars in the casino. And stick with it. No matter how many times you lose.
Keep a record book for all your expenses like an accounts journal if it helps you.
Pick the right game
Pick a game that you know how to play. If you have never played blackjack in your entire life, stay away from that table and play roulette instead. This is just common sense. If you don’t even know the basics of the game, you cannot possibly hope to win at the table.
If you are only playing for fun and would like to learn while you play, go online and play the game for fun money on one of the many websites that offer this service. You can play for real money when you think you have at least mastered the basics. You may be able to find learning tables at land-based casinos as some, not all, have them for a small fee.
Play on a table that offers you to play with the rules that you are most comfortable with. If you play slots, play on a machine that allows you to play with a denomination that fits your budget. If you play roulette, bet on the colors and odd/even brackets. If you play blackjack, pick a table where dealer stands on an all seventeen. If you are into poker, play pot limit poker. Play with the right rules set and you will have a better chance at winning.
