There is a motto that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. That means that whatever sinful and embarrassing things that you do in the place, it should remain a secret.
That being said, that motto is surely followed by the workers at the casinos. But, there are some that are brave enough to tell the truth.
Going to a live casino is a pretty exhilarating experience but you may want to read through the rest of the article to find out what secrets lie behind the curtain.
Every Game Has a Different House Edge
You might have already heard that the house always has the upper hand and that term is known as the house edge.
According to Jenn Tseng and Ilya Veygman, among all of the casino table games, the roulette is probably the worst when it comes to house edge as it is the highest among the bunch.
Generally speaking, the house edge if 5% in roulette for a standard double-zero roulette wheel. The lowest, they said, is blackjack which is only a measly 0.28% and it is the game that you’d want to play if you want to win big.
It is also important to note that since the smaller casinos aren’t able to retain the best dealers in the area, the house edge is far lower compared to the bigger ones.
Drinking Can Make You Lose, a Lot
Jon Mixon, who is a Nevada native, said that the free booze that is being offered by Vegas casinos is actually part of the plan.
You see, copious amounts of alcohol can help impair the player’s judgment and if they lose consistently, their instincts would tell them that they should continue playing on in an attempt to recoup the losses.
It is best that you only take small sips of the drink at a time since the casino pit bosses are okay with you not really consuming your alcohol. Then again, do not be fooled by the ‘free’ drinks that they offer because you are going to pay a price.
Wager the Max Bet on the Slots
According to Tseng, if you want to play the slot machine, you’re better off wagering a max bet as opposed to getting the minimum. You see, the motto that you should have when playing the slots is that you bet big to win big. Therefore, place a max bet right from the start.
The Buildings Are Built to Bedazzle
Las Vegas casinos are made in such a way not only to bedazzle you but to also disorient you at the same time. Veygman said that the casino floors are made using a labyrinth-like design and it is pretty easy for anyone who is not a casino regular to get lost in the premises.
Garrick Saito, a Los Angeles native, said that you will never find a clock anywhere in the casino. The reason is simple: the casinos do not want you to go home. The good thing, though, is that you are permitted to wear a watch; so wear one.
