Seven tips for preparing for your first casino trip

If you are planning on a night out on the weekend, a trip to the casino can be great fun. At most casinos, you can enjoy a three-course meal in their restaurant beforehand or after, a drink at the bar, and of course playing on their casino tables. 

But what if you haven’t been before? That’s not a problem at all. Most casinos can seem a little intimidating due to the player playing on the table, but when you look past this, it’s not as scary as you may think. To help ease your nerves, below we have put together seven tips for preparing for your first casino trip. 

Do not overdrink

To calm your nerves, it can be tempting to have a drink beforehand. This is fine, but try not to overdrink. If you’ve had too much to drink, you can sometimes become reckless and bet more than you would if you didn’t have alcohol in your system. When betting on the tables, some casinos will give you free drinks, be wary of this and keep track of how much you have drunk whilst betting. The last thing you want to do is have a little too much to drink and bet more than you would because you have that extra bit of dutch courage. 

Learn the rules beforehand 

Before going to the casino, it’s always advised that you try to read the rules and play some practice games beforehand. Once you feel confident about the rules, you could always try depositing a small amount of money on an online casino TuskCasino to get used to playing. By playing online you are playing within the comfort of your own home and can withdraw your money as soon as you are done. Some online casinos have a play for free section where you can play with fake money to get used to the casino games on their site. 

Only bet what you can lose 

When going to a casino, only bet the amount of money that you can afford to lose. This way if you win, amazing! If you lose you aren’t stressing that you have lost more than you can afford. Set a limit before you enter the casino and as soon as you have hit that limit stop playing. Tell your friends about your limit so that they can remind you when you are playing to stop if you start to overbet. Going to the casino is supposed to be good fun, the last thing you want to do is lose more than you can afford. 

Watch before playing 

Don’t just jump into a casino game that you have never played before. Spend some time watching the people playing and take note of any habits they are doing. When you enter the table, start by playing with a small amount of money then work your way up once you feel comfortable. If the casino game isn’t for you, move onto a different table as most casinos have plenty of games you can play. 

Never chase your losses 

The saying goes that the house always wins in the end. For this reason, if you start losing, don’t keep betting with the mindset that you can turn it around and win, chances are you won’t. Stick to the budget you have set before getting to the casino and as soon as it’s gone walk away. When players go on tilt and chase their losses, this can be when they lose the most amount of money. 

Make the most of the freebies 

Whether you play live casino games online or play on a table at a casino, there are always some freebies for you to take advantage of. These freebies vary from x amount of free spins on a slot machine to a free £10 bet or deposit of £10 get £20 free. Most of these promotions will be aimed at first-time players so make sure you look into them before visiting the casino. Our only advice on a freebie is to make sure you read the T&C’s beforehand to make sure they are realistic and achievable. 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help 

Just remember with everything in life, we have all been there. Everyone has had their first trip to the casino where they have felt nervous and did not know what to do. It’s ok to ask the staff or other players for help if you are confused or something. If you are going with your friends, try and play next to them so that they can help you along the way.
