Casino Etiquette

When visiting any casino it’s important to understand the casino etiquette as well as having some knowledge of game strategy. The thing you need to avoid most is being the player who makes folks uncomfortable. Try not being either to loud or rude. Understanding the online casino game rules and keeping your cool will allow you to concentrate on winning, or walking away from the table and taking a break if you don’t, it’s a mugs game chasing after lost money.

First and foremost you need to keep your emotions in check. Sure there is money involved and everyone likes to win, nobody likes to lose, but that doesn’t mean you carry on either way. No one likes a melodramatic player.

When you do win there is no need to holler and shout. When you lose, take a deep breath and don’t go chasing lost money, try and work out why you lost and maybe keep an eye on the consistent winners, this may help you in trying to formulate a winning strategy, never jump in with both feet this can lead to irrational decisions and ultimately a loose of your stake money.

When you visit a online casino, brick and mortar casino, it seems like everybody makes an attempt to be a comic. The key to being funny is basically not commenting on everything. Less is certainly more, that way when you have something to say it is worth listening to as opposed to the people who just never shut up. You don’t want to be one of those people.

Manners are important when speaking with dealers and waiters. Don’t be demeaning or patronising, especially if you believe in karma. There is nothing worse than angering the karma gods while at the blackjack table. This could see your very sizable chip stack quickly disappear.

It is also important that you are polite to your fellow players. Again you just don’t know when it is going to come back to bite you. So as much as you would like to snap at them when you are on a losing streak, you need to hold your tongue and let it pass. You will be better off for it in the long run.

If you are at a roulette or blackjack table your cell phone should be switched off or at least muted until you leave the table. There is nothing more annoying than someone at the table with a cell phone that is ringing. It really is inexcusable and very inconsiderate. It could also see you thrown out of the online casinos.

Dress code is not as important as it once was, but if you are playing in a high rolling casino such at Monaco you would be well advised to at least be smart casual with maybe shirt and tie. You should not go in shorts or flip-flops. You can be wearing casual clothes without coming off as a total slob. The image you convey is the way in which you’ll be handled. If you come across as a gentleman you’ll be treated as one.

That is the thing about the online casino. You are going to meet people of all backgrounds and persuasions of life. You don’t have to be friends with all of them. It can be difficult to do so when they are unlikable and you’ve lost money to them but you just need to be civil. You don’t want to make a bad situation get worse.
