Before we delve into how to leave the casino with a fortune you need to know some truths. All games in the casino try to engage players. All of them with promises of huge jackpots. It’s fair to say those jackpots are usually beyond the imagination of the average person.
The casino also employs marketing and branding experts that know exactly what gets your attention. Images of beautiful people and luxury lifestyles flow freely around promises of huge jackpots. It’s not hard to see why players are easily enticed. Time for a reality check. The chances of hitting the jackpot are miniscule. Though not impossible. But as the heading reads this is a reality check. Go in knowing you’re playing the odds not the jackpot. Games are pure chance, luck or at best designed with odds in favour of the casino. But they are usually measurable. Always look to that measurement. The odds. It’s better to avoid those ones that deal with luck. There may be measurable odds on some level but for the most part these are pure luck. Do they ever pay off? Absolutely or there wouldn’t be a casino industry to begin with. Which games are luck only? Some of the games based on luck are slot machines, keno and craps. This means you while you may hit it big the odds are against you. Know this going in and play accordingly.
For better odds you may want to stay with games that require skill. Games like poker and blackjack require some skill and reward players with those skills. Does that mean there is ‘no-luck’ involved?
Unfortunately the answer to that is no. There is always going to be the luck-of-the-draw. Basically the hand you’re dealt. But once you have those cards in hand your unique skills, experience and personality can begin to shine. This is where knowledgeable players jockey for position and dominate a game quickly. It’s worth developing those skills if your goal is to win any decent jackpots.
The good news is there are tips you can adopt. These will get you closer to that goal a lot faster. Master a single game.
The first thing you must do is to pick a game you can relate to. One that you enjoy. You will know it when you find it. For example you may feel comfortable with Blackjack or 3 Card. Don’t make the mistake of trying to know everything about every game. Focus your time and attention on becoming highly proficient at a single game. Practice, play and study everything you can about that game. Make it your game.
Believe in yourself.
Okay you’ve studied and practiced until you can play in your sleep. Now you’re ready to take it to the next level. You need to walk into the casino like you’ve already won. Approach your game with a cool confidence. Wear your confident attitude from the moment you arrive. Confidence is a giant vacuum. It lives and breathes. It can gain strength from others while undermining theirs. And when that happens when done correctly, your opponents may soften their approach. They may hold back as they second-guess a move. Don’t underestimate the psychological effect of this. It’s a skill that’s invaluable to have. Be conscious of your image. We’ve all seen the players with the dark glasses, baseball caps and sponsor badges plastered all over their shirt. This is an example of a cartoonish image and hopefully one you want to avoid. Unless you want to look like you’re playing in the World Series of Poker.
This goes hand-in-hand with the paragraph above – “Believe in yourself”. Your image is part of your cool confidence. Avoid being the caricature poker player at the table. So how does one leave the casino with a fortune? Playing allowance. Let’s talk realistically. But if you have been following along you know odds are measurable. If you’re in it for the long game and done your homework then you begin to turn any odds to your advantage. Regardless of your chosen game you will need real money to play – your stake in the game. You want to win that fortune but that’s not likely to happen playing Blackjack for $20 dollars a hand.
This will likely require a substantial amount of money. You need to play big to win big. There is no simpler way to put this. You may want to consider playing the table max. For a Blackjack table that could be $1000 dollars. No one said winning was easy or painless. You will require a sizable bankroll. Apply what you know. Remember you can play this game your game in your sleep.
Pick your table.
Your choice of table can influence your game. Think carefully about the table environment before you jump in. Are the other players more or less-experienced than you? Always remember if you are playing against the dealer make sure to pick a table with players as good or better than yourself. If you’re playing against others, such as Texas Holdem, then pick a table with players that have with less experience than yourself.
It’s not fool-proof but it will give you a great edge against the other players.
