Playing in an online casino nowadays is as easy as going to the gambling club in your neighborhood. The security of your funds and the privacy of your personal data are guaranteed as there is strict control over the online casinos. Of course there are many fake online casinos but the trusted ones are so many that you will not have a problem at all to find a good casino where to play. I will not discuss the ways to find trusted casinos in this article. For further information regarding this issue read my bio below where I am posting a link to another article which will guide you in finding legitimate and reliable online casinos!
Anyway, let's move forward. Let's say you have made your research and found a trusted casino where to play. In order for you to start playing there are a few basic steps you should follow:
1. Create an account.
First of all you will need to create an account in that casino of course. For that aim just go to the sign up page and fill out the required data. The registration should be free and you should not be forced to put any money in your account if you do not want to - otherwise just skip that casino and move to another.
2. Play with real money or for pleasure.
If you've chosen the right casino then you will have that choice - whether to play with real money or for fun. If the casino doesn't allow you to play free then skip it and go to another one. If you want to play with real money then you should make a deposit by using one of the payment methods the casino supports. They are usually:
Check the fees before funding your account as there might be different fees for the different payment methods.
3. Software installation
Most of the casinos will require you to download and install software of theirs in order to play their games. So don't worry if you are asked to download some.exe file - that's normal and you will not have any problems at all if you've chosen the right casino. After you've downloaded the software you should of course install it. Run the exe file and follow the steps in the given in the installation process.
So... that's all. You are ready to play:) Enjoy!
If you decided to build a new home, would you start construction without first developing a plan or blueprint? Or would you begin a new business without having a business plan? Would you go to war without knowing your enemy and having a predetermined plan for victory? Well why do you go to the casino without a plan for winning?
Winning is what it is all about. I have never lost money at a casino and felt good about it and if you are honest, neither have you. I work hard for my money and when I go to the casino I want to know I have extended my very best effort towards winning. It is a small consolation when I lose and I do lose a lot but I also win a lot.
Here are a few tips to extend your next gambling vacation or casino day trip:
Plan Your Trip
Make your visit to a casino more enjoyable by calling ahead and finding out what is happening at the casino you plan to visit. Ask questions about available comp promotions and entertainment options. Are tickets available to upcoming shows? Inquire about food establishments, when they are open and if they are offering any specials?
Also never nail yourself to one casino. Find out if there is a neighboring casino. If so, call them and ask them the same questions. You may want to plan a visit there.
If you do plan to visit more than one casino, ask how much rated play is required at your host casino to have your room comped both at Casino Rates and fully comped (If you do not know what I mean by this, read Comps 101 or The Ask Game.).
Count Your Money
Before you go to a casino you should determine how much money you have to spend. Decide how long you plan to stay and divide your money up accordingly. If you have $200 and you plan to stay two days, plan on spending $100 per day.
Or if you only plan to stay several hours you can divide your money by how many hours you staying.
Set your stop losses and stay with them.
Plan Your Play
Plan your play based on your bankroll. How much money you have should dictate how much you can wager on a single hand, throw of the dice or pull of the wheel. Use common sense and decide this before you leave home and stay with it.
You should always have a good knowledge of the game you are playing if you play table games. Start slow and see if you are hot or cold. If you are winning, put some back for later. If you are losing, walk away. The tables will be there all night long. Do not try and create a hot streak.
A good slots system should be studied and used if you play slots. Slots pay in trends. Take your time and look for a trend. Watch what is going on around you and make your decisions based on what you are seeing. If you are winning, put some back for later. If you are losing, walk away. The slots will be there all night long. Do not try to start a trend.
Take A Break
You should have planned other activities when you called ahead to the casino. Stay with your plan. Go to a show or eat your meals when planned. Get away from the action and clear your thoughts. If you have friends at the casino, meet with them and get their opinions about what is happening. My dad always said two heads were better than one even if one is a goat head.
Plan On Taking Money Home
I have visited casinos where every penny I put in the slot was gone with the pull and I was not smart enough to walk out of the casino. Do not be afraid to leave. Many people won't leave a tight casino because they have just got there. You are not there to give your money away. You are there to have a good time and losing every dime you have is not having a good time.
Leaving when you are broke is easy. No decision to make, you just leave. On the other hand, it is hard to head for the door when you are winning. In your planning you should always set a time to go to the room or to go home, win lose or draw.
If every time you hit a jackpot or have a Gorabet hot streak at the tables you put some of your winning away and do not touch it till you leave the casino, you will never have a long ride home.
Setting a game plan and staying with it requires a lot of self discipline especially in the bright lights and hot action of a casino.
