Don't like the big casino's much unless it was a special occasion.

Honestly I couldn't care less about it, my parents lost my family home to it when I was a kid, so I guess you can say I have a grudge.

The only thing I'd consider is maybe some sports bets or some quick pub bets.

I mean I dont gamble-you have to be 21 for most casinos in the US-but I went to one once in the Bahamas last year on vacation so I have a funny story. I had no idea what I was doing and me and my friend were both given $20 and that was it. We went to a slots machine and I stuck mine inside and pressed a button. Her dad-who was apparently much more experienced-told me I shouldnt have pressed that one cause it used all my money. He swallowed his tongue soon enough when I ended up winning $4,000 off that one time lol :lol:
After that I only had the few one and five dollar bills in my pocket. Ended up getting another $200 and then left before I could press my luck. Played one round of roulette but had no idea what I was doing lmao. All in all I had a fun time tho!
Maybe I should go back now that I know how to play poker :wink:

I played blackjack a lot for a while on my graphing calculator when I was in high-skewl. If my head was in the game I could win a little more than I lost so I came out ahead a little when I played a lot but I also lost a lot at times too. I'm sure playing blackjack against a real person instead of a computer/machine is very different. BTW there was a movie called Blackjack in the 90s that I haven't seen in AGES.

I played the slot machines 50 years ago. It was more fun then. They had penny slots. They used mechanical slots not electric. Many times when a machine paid up, the cams were aligned so that it might produce another winner. So you watched, many times when someone won they collected their winnings and left. Those machines were hot. So if you played that machine for a few times thereafter, you might become a winner. That strategy worked for me.

But there is no such thing with electronic slots. It is a losing proposition.

Casino odds are deliberately set to ensure - on average - that you lose and the House wins.



PvP games at casinos - Poker being the most famous one - allow the opportunity for winning, as you aren't gambling against the casino, but against other players. But if you *do* find a potentially profitable high-stakes game (physical or online), there is a good chance that a much more experienced poker pro will be there at the table to take all your money…

Professional online poker players sometimes play multiple (4, 5 or more) games at once and use third party software to check if their playing strategy is optimized to ensure the highest statistical probability of winning…

"The truth is... the game was rigged from the start."

Everything at casinos are horribly rigged against you, mostly games of chance to make you feel like you could win, you are only going to be bled dry by taking part in casinos, especially considering probability, which makes it ridiculou.

I have been to casinos within video games though.

Yes, personally, I very often play online casinos. Before that, I very often went to ordinary casinos on my street, but over time I got tired of this environment. A regular casino is not always open and there are a lot of drunk or just unpleasant people. I like playing through online casinos much more because there are a lot of games and bonuses in online casinos. True, I like casinos with a huge number of different games much more, because in my opinion it is better to always have a choice between games than not. If you ever want to play at an online casino, I can recommend because it is a really convenient and high-quality service where you can find many games and opportunities to earn games.

You can win.

We saw that with the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay shooter.

He exclusively player poker slots.

"Michael Shackleford, who runs a gambling strategy website called The Wizard of Odds, said based on what is known of Paddock's life, the gunman seems to have been what the casinos refer to as a "premium mass" player — one who bets in higher amounts, with a better understanding of the game than the typical player.

Premium mass players pay close attention to the odds in the game they're playing and the payout, and they typically need access to a lot of money because they may have long dry spells where they lose exorbitant amounts.

Eventually, Shackleford said, if players stay true to a perfect strategy — one designed to maximize their performance over the long haul, such as by getting rid of potentially decent cards like low pairs to increase chances of a big-payout royal flush — their luck will turn, based on statistics, and they'll break even or come close to it. When you add in the freebies from the casino, the player can come out ahead"

When I was 18, I decided to bet $75 on my favourite team and lost. Then I realised that just being interested in teams was not enough. I began to study probabilities and other factors influencing winning .I always knew my limits in everything: there was never a problem with losing possessions, alcohol.
I went to Las Vegas to meet the ""computer group"".
. After a few years, when I made some good money at the casino vietnamwar.net, I seriously got into bookmaking and got into gambling, investing my winnings in the business.
