Casino owners adopt cunning strategies to prevent players from winning too much. That much is known to all gamblers. If you look at the odds, they’re always favoring the casino. What can you do to win big even when the odds are against you?
We’ll give you not one but nine simple, yet effective tips to hit the jackpot.
1. Practice and Observe
What’s the game you’re interested in? Is it poker, slots, roulette, or blackjack? The key to winning big in any game is to keep practicing. Look at other players and what they're doing wrong or observe the big sharks get a read on their working.
2. Know When to Fold
The worst mistake a player can make is going all-in when it is obvious that they are losing. For example, a person playing poker has two of hearts and the king of spades. The dealer has thus far dealt four cards, the sequence is such- 5 of spades, 7 of diamonds, 8 of diamonds, 9 of diamonds. Poker players know the odds are drastically against this person. Now, if another player goes all in, it is best to fold. Don’t go bankrupt trying to call their bluff.
3. Bonuses Come with Limits
Many online casinos come with exciting bonuses. But players often ignore reading the terms and conditions. Most casinos have a limit on how much you can win from bonus funds. If you win $700 and the limit is $500, you can only withdraw $500.
4. Don’t Fall for Branded Games
Slots associated with Hollywood movies, pop bands, and celebrities are a combination of low RTP and high volatility. Steer clear of these machines and games.
5. Progressive Jackpot Slots are a Gold Mine
Progressive jackpot slots send a portion of your stake towards the jackpot. However, if you win the jackpot with a stake that is not at the maximum bet level, the winnings won’t be as advertised. You may win a small part of the jackpot but that’s it.
6. Select the Right Volatility
High volatility is directly proportional to fewer but bigger wins. So, if you like winning frequently, go for low volatility games that offer more frequent ins but on a small scale.
7. Scout First, Play Next
This tip is mainly for slots. Look at the slot machines when others are playing. If the jackpot symbol comes up on the screen but the combination is just short of being the winning combination, that’s the machine you should play on.
8. Play on Slot Machines at the Ends of the Rows
Brick-and-mortar casinos often place machines with the best odds where maximum people can see them. These machines grab the attention of passersby and get more people to play the slots.
9. Be AWARE of your surroundings
Don't lose track of time or give in to the relishes offered by the casinos. Gambling for some time can be fun but if you keep betting you will spend more money than you intended to. Keep looking at the time you’ve spent at the casino on your watch or your phone. Why not look at the clocks in the casino directly?
Because there aren’t any!
With all these tips in mind, go ahead and get started on winning big.
