The Dos and Don’ts When Heading to a Casino

It’s finally time to go out and enjoy yourself! But first, let me give you some tips on not having an embarrassing night at the casino. Make sure that when entering any building or going through metal detectors; always keep your belongings in sight (don’t set them down), take off anything, including shoes/socks, so that they can check for bombs underneath..


  • Always monitor the bonuses on offer in a casino. Many casinos will offer larger bonuses than others, so it’s important to research the venues in your location to ensure you get as much value as possible. As a first-time visitor, you’ll often be entitled to additional bonuses, too; be sure to ask around or read reviews online before you go.
  • Think of the money that you wager as lost. If you cannot afford to lose it, then do not stake it. There is always a chance you could lose the money on the table, so avoid placing a year’s salary on red, and instead decide how much you want to spend before you go.
  • Ask about the betting and winning rules at different casinos and different tables. Most casinos will change their rules regularly, so stay in the know to ensure you don’t get caught out. If you check with the dealer or a member of staff, then you’re less likely to be confused when you miss out on what you thought was a major win.
  • Ensure you take breaks from whatever game you are playing. If you get engrossed in a game, you could lose focus and your money as a result. Regular breaks will keep your mind fresh and ultimately result in you remaining in control of the game you are playing.


  • Don’t be seen fiddling with an electronic item such as a mobile phone for an extended period. Casino security is always looking for players paying particular attention to a table or machine with a device. If you can live without it, leave your phone at home; if not, leave it in your pocket.
  • Don’t drink too much whilst gambling. Alcohol clouds the mind and greatly hinders decision-making, especially in high-pressure situations. So keep the booze to a minimum and your head clear.
  • Don’t get caught up in a game that you do not understand. Although going to a casino is a great opportunity to try games you haven’t played before, getting embroiled in a Baccarat game when you have no idea what is going on is shortsighted. Study the rules and mechanics of each game before you put down your chips.
  • Don’t interfere with anyone else’s chips. Gamblers are particular about their personal space and property when they are playing, and laying your hands on their cards or bet is a sure-fire way of causing upset. Stick to your hand and if it isn’t yours, don’t touch it.
