Rules for Winning Casino Gambling – The majority of people who gamble in casinos are losers. No surprises there. This can be witnessed by the million dollar monument to pleasure that is the state casino. They were built for one purpose and only one purpose… which is to separate the casino patrons who are suspicious of their money.
Gambling generates more annual revenue than the film, audience sports, theme parks, cruises, and recorded music industries combined. According to recent government statistics, casino gambling generates about $40 billion dollars annually.
The part that amazes me is, winning at casino gambling is just as easy as losing. The casino table games of craps, blackjack, and baccarat (and most even money bets on roulette) have the lowest “house percentages” found anywhere offering players the best chance of winning.
However, to win money gambling, first and foremost, requires an intention to win. Sounds a bit simple doesn’t it? I keep hearing people tell me, “I went to Caesars Palace or The Sands the other day and I only lost $50, $60, $100 or $150.” Are you kidding? It looks like they left with the intention of losing. It seemed they had a predetermined amount in their minds that they hoped would be lost.
With the table games mentioned above, the “house percentage” in the pass line/don’t pass line bet with no additional odds bet is only 1.41%. In baccarat it is 1.25% in “player” hands and 1.16% in “bank” hands. Playing blackjack, using a multi-deck “Basic Strategy”, no house advantage. The casino has no advantage over the players at all.
It is my firm belief that it is just as easy for a knowledgeable player to win at casino gambling as it is for an ignorant player to lose. It has to do with intention.
3 Rules of Winning at Casino Gambling
There are three simple rules that players must follow to be a winner. They:
1. Make only bets that reduce the “house percentage” to the lowest possible amount.
2. Money management… set a strict amount you will bet on each gaming session by limiting the minimum bet size to no more than 3 to 5% of the initial cash amount. If you lose that amount, stop betting and leave the table.
3. Always leave the table when you win. You can’t go wrong with leaving a winner. Always play to win and not just for the thrill of the action. In short, self-control.
Playing against a low house advantage and using a money management system that provides sufficient resources, there will definitely be times in each gaming session when you will earn money.
You shouldn’t worry about what you might have won. You won’t win a chandelier from the ceiling. That is a completely unrealistic expectation. If you always come out victorious, you will always have life left to fight another day and far more money to do so.
There are actual playing and betting strategies for each of these games which are sure to shift the advantage to the player in a fairly short gaming session. Failure to follow this simple strategy is the reason most people lose money while gambling in casinos.
It’s a much more enjoyable experience to come back from a trip to the casino a winner than a loser and if you follow these sound principles you really can’t help but be a winner.
By all means, take advantage of their elegant rooms, fine dining, drinks in the lounge, or maybe go to the show. But play smart and do all this with their money, not yours.
