10 Ways to Beat the Casino’s at Their Own Games

Casino games can make you or break you. Use these 10 in person and these online casino tips to play like a pro using tricks that will help you win.

1. Play Higher Denominations on Slots

Know the casino slot machine secrets! It may seem like penny or nickel slots allow you to get more bang for your buck. However, that only holds true if you play to play and not play to win.

You will find that dollar slots offer a higher payback percentage than a quarter or penny slots. Yes, you could lose more money at a faster rate.

But, you also increase your chances of getting ahead. The higher the risk, the greater the reward when you hit. Learn slot machine math to fully understand your odds on the spin.

While putting money into the slots, also pay attention to the minimum bet required to hit the Jackpot. You want to hit the big prizes to really make something on these machines.

2. Choose End Slots

While playing at the casino, rumor has it that the end slot machines win the most. The casino wants people to see others winning, therefore people claim that they place machines that win the most in visible areas.

3. Set a Timer

Whether you visit a casino or play online, games can suck you in quickly. Once the addiction sets in, people often lose track of both, time and the amount of money they spend.

Casino’s do this by keeping you from seeing the outside world and not displaying clocks. Even playing from your home, you can get lost in the screen.

To avoid this, wear a watch and set an alarm. Make it go off frequently, as a reminder to check your budget.

4. Learn Craps

This dice game offers some of the better odds at the casino, if you learn how to keep probability in your favor. Let’s look at how to do this.

Play the Pass Line

Playing the pass line gives you fantastic odds of winning. House always takes advantage in a casino, but on the pass line, their advantage is only 1.41%.

You place this bet prior to a new roll. If the shooter rolls a 7 or 11 on the come out, you win.

The come out roll sets the number for the round. You also win if they hit it, but lose if they roll a seven at this point.

Place the 6 and 8

Dice probability reveals that you receive the best casino odds by placing chips on the 6 and the 8. Due to the amount of possible number combinations, you will hit 6 or 8 more often than any other numbers.

If you play one or the other, it gives you a 13.89% chance of hitting. If you play both, then your winnings odds increase to 27.78% with those two numbers.

Skip the Impulse Bets

The Craps table temps players with big odds bets and fancy decor. These include the Big 6 and 8, hard ways, other one roll bets, and come bets. Skip these to play the smart bets- at least until you find yourself way up and just want to add a little excitement.

5. Avoid Keno

Keno carries a large house advantage. Casino’s tempt people with the giant play screens in open places for a reason.

Your best odds, 1 in 4, come from playing only one number, which also gives you the lowest payout ratio. To avoid losing big, you most likely want to steer clear from 25% house odds.

6. Pay Attention

Las Vegas gambling throws you into a whirlwind of excitement. Though you may enjoy the moment, the distractions can lead you to make poor choices at the tables and lose more cash than you hoped to spend. The most vigilant players often come out on top.

7.  Play Bingo

Bingo does not trap you in a game that continues to suck money away. You pay for your cards up front and then get a couple of hours of play time. Still, follow some guidelines at the Bingo Hall.

Look for Sign Up Bonuses

Bingo Halls will often give you a percentage of your initial deposit as gameplay credit. Look for these bonuses to get the most bang for your buck.

Don’t Pull Tabs

People walk around the Bingo Hall tempting you with pull tabs. If you really want in on the fun, set a budge. Do not play the “just one more” game when you almost hit the Jackpot, or you will find yourself spending more than you hoped.

Play More Boards

Nobody can argue that the more boards you collect, the better your odds of winning. However, this can get expensive and exhausting if you grab too many. Limit your paper.

Set a budget for boards prior to walking in, and take into account any specials they will walk around with during the game. Using the computer at the halls will allow you to better control your boards.

8. Sign UP for VIP

Some people see the line and skip the VIP casino cards. Take the time and wait.

The cards technically do not increase your odds. However, the points will add up to give you free game play, food, and entertainment.

9. Steer Clear of 6:5 Blackjack

This type of payout increases the house edge. You should look for the 3:2 Blackjack payout tables

10. Play Poker Boldly

Playing scared will quickly kick you out of the game. While playing poker, fold often. But, also raise aggressively more often.

This will make it difficult for the other players to read you. This will both increase your pot and cause more people to fold as you raise.

Gamble Wisely

All of life is a gamble. The key to success is a solid strategy, especially in casinos. We are here for your entertainment! Please read more on Odd Culture!
