Dive Casino

The enormous casinos that everyone has heard about attract tourists from all over, but there are

other, cozier places nearby. These smaller locations are quieter and more low-key, and usually

bring in the same group of locals on a regular basis. There are many perks to visiting a dive

location, but there are also pitfalls.

Do: Play what the others are playing.

If you are looking for fun, trust the locals. They know the best games.

Don’t: Play competitive table games.

Many of the people at a dive casino see each other regularly, and may even be friends. Chances

are high that when a newcomer walks in, the locals will gang up on the new player.

Rugged Old Casinos

Not all casinos are in prime condition. Things happen sometimes, and a once-was casino sinks

under the water. These unkempt casinos may be falling apart, but they still have uses for clever

gamblers.

Do: Play roulette.

Watch the wheel carefully to see if it favors any particular numbers, or if it is more likely to pick

a certain side of the board. Roulette wheels in places such as this are the most likely to provide a

distinct player advantage.

Don’t: Play on the gambling machines.

There is a small chance that run-down gambling machines will not work right. They might not

pay out for a win, they might crash, or they might do any number of other things. These errors

may be beneficial, but if the machine does something to your deficit instead, there is no way you

will get a refund.

Online Casino

These casinos take place on the computer or on the phone. The advantage is they can be played

anytime and anywhere, but the disadvantage is they can be played anytime and anywhere. For example, we recommend Slots of Vegas for first time players.

Do: Play for bonuses.

Sometimes bonuses are unleashed for playing specific games on specific days. Go for it.

Don’t: Play the slots.

Unless you know for sure that a specific online slot machine is fair, find something else to play.

Some online slot machines have a respectable house advantage, but others are through the roof.

Big, Fancy Casino

When at a large, commercial casino like the giants in Las Vegas and Macau, the rules change.

Some things make perfect sense to do, even if they would not make sense in other places.

Do: Play high-roller games.

If you can afford it, being a high roller is amazing. High rollers receive real special treatment

including coupons and free stuff. It’s not even necessary to bet large amounts so long as you can

make it look like you are doing so.

Don’t: Do Nothing

At large casinos, the machines are working (or properly marked as out of order). The

competition is fierce but not targeted at anyone in particular, and the slot machines are as fair as

they are anywhere else. Nothing is closed off here.
