Know when you've lost. Blackjack especially is a major pain. It's too addicting...

Re: For all the gamblers out there

Scout out a casino that offers you the best odds on craps. Take Don't Pass, and Press the odds, since Odds is one of the only things that casinos do is a pure mathematical coinflip at 0 percent. You have no edge, they have no edge. You'd only be giving up .3 or .4 on every roll that way. Blackjack card counting has mythologized the game. But house edge on Perfect By The Book blackjack is .5 percent, and I fucking PROMISE YOU that you are not playing perfect by the book blackjack. If you're even an average, typical blackjack player, you're probably anywhere between 4 and 10 times worse than perfect, by the book blackjack, meaning the house edge is anywhere from 2 to 5 percent!

Fuck blackjack, go to the craps table, turn your brain off, and if you don't deviate from Don't Pass/Press you get to roll dice and freeroll comped drinks minus what you kick to the croupier as a tip.

Re: For all the gamblers out there

If you have no self-control, any hint we can give you is worth nothing. Don't bet the maximum, bet according to the bankroll available to you. If you start with $300, the absolute maximum you should bet on any given game is $5 a game, and even that is probably too much. Don't bet on games you don't understand, or you'll go broke in no time flat.

Re: For all the gamblers out there

I'm going out there next Friday for 2 weeks.

I would recommend play lower limit tables. Places like Casino Royale have $5 tables (not the only one but one on the strip that has $5 tables). Or if you are in old Vegas there are casinos there that have low limit tables as well.

If you start winning, don't increase your bets drastically because you aren't going to win every hand (or dice roll, or roulette spin or whatever game you play).

Follow up on "optimal strategy" for your game of choice. The odds are still going to be on the house (unless you play poker against real people) - but you can minimize the house edge by playing correctly. There are blackjack charts on the internet for example that can help you make the right decisions.

Don't take ALL your money with you. Meaning, if you bring 1000 for the trip - keep most of in the safe at the hotel, only take like 100 or 200 bucks with you at a time. If you lose what you brought out for that session, stop for the day or at least take a break and get some food, get a drink, look at pretty girls, etc. Don't just go back to the hotel to get more money out. Stuff like that.

Also - I will never tell anyone not to gamble because I'd be a huge hypocrite lol - but I will say just manage your money wisely and don't play with money you really can't afford to lose. And hopefully you will win something!

Re: For all the gamblers out there

You need to take your time and set a limit on what you're willing to spend. It all comes down to willpower. If you lose a few hands, head to the bar and get a beer and slow it down.

For me, I found the penny slots are a good way to stretch your money out. A max bet might be $3, but you can actually win a decent amount with all the multipliers.

Re: For all the gamblers out there

What ever your budget/bankroll is, you have to split it into bets accordingly.

If your total budget is $500 and you sit down at a $100 limit blackjack table you're going to go broke in 5 minutes.
Find some tables, maybe at Freemont Street that are a little cheaper.
Play 100 hands of $5 of whatever you play.
You can take $50 and play 5-10 cent bets on a slot machine for like hourssssssss.
Play some 1-2 poker, unless you donk it all off right away, you can usually get a few hours out of it, even as a casual player.
Sports bet and then watch the game.

Take breaks and walk around. There's tons of cool shit just to look at even if you've been to Vegas 100 times.

Re: For all the gamblers out there

1/2 poker or 1/3 poker is a good suggestion. The only way you can really fuck yourself up is bluffing too much and a boneheaded all in. If you show up to that with 100 to 300 big blinds, you shouldn't blow it all in 5 minutes. You take a few hundred to a higher stakes blackjack table like you did in the past twice, you're just gonna light your money on fire again.

Tbf you can get really unlucky but yeah it is really hard to blow 300 big blinds quickly if you are slightly OK in Vegas

Or get KK first hand against AA and it's all in preflop.. That happened to me once.. I suppose you could argue I should have laid KK down and cut my losses.. But not too many people are going to lay it down and it was my first hand so I had no idea if the guy was tight or a loose cannon or what.. I think I actually jammed and got called anyway.. I don't remember it was awhile ago lol..

But yeah 99% of the time you are correct you should at least get a few hours out of your money unless you are playing like a fool..

But here is the advice you should actually be following. Never bet money you can't afford to lose look at the gambling in Vegas as part of your entertainment dollars spent and not as a way to "make money" Unless you're a professional gambler, but if you were I would assume you'd be much better at managing your money when gambling at this point.
