Casino is a place which is frequented by both young and old and seen enjoying the different games offered. Though a casino is known as a place of sin, but even this place has some unwritten, unspoken rules, breaking which, may raise an eyebrow or two. People are very unforgiving if they see a person breaking it, even if it is by a first time visitor.
Before entering any casino, one should definitely know about the dress code. If the visitor is inappropriately dressed, he can be stopped at the entrance itself. Some of the other gambling etiquettes which a player should abide by are the following:
Wait to be seated:
Despite being excited one has to get into action and start playing at the table or slot machines, it is a definite no-no to shove other players. One should show good patience and wait for their turn to be seated, or ask people around if the seat can be taken.
Be mindful of tablemates:
One should be very careful while ordering for a beverage or food at the table. Care should be taken that the drink does not spill and the food not stain the table, chips or cards. Always place the glass in the holders and order food which is non greasy and give bad breath.
Use of Mobiles:
Use of mobiles is not entertained at the table when the game is going on. If an important call is to be attended, one should step aside from the table and take the call. If someone wants to take a picture while the game is on, one should ask if it’s fine to do so.
Be acquainted with the game rules:
One should have the basic idea of the game, before start playing at any table. One can get familiarized with the game by playing online or reading books or just by observing what is happening in the game. The dealer may give the basic rules of the game, but will never give any advice of what one do should with his cards.
Know the stakes:
Always try to know the minimum and maximum stakes before joining a table. Frequent enquiries regarding the same, may slow down the rhythm of the game which may annoy other tablemates.
Never play under the influence of alcohol:
A player may lose lot of money if he is not playing with a stable mind. There can be a risk of losing control over oneself and may negatively hamper the enjoyment of other players.
Always tip the dealer:
This is one of the most fundamental rules of casinos. Never leave the casino without tipping the dealer, even if the player has made losses.
If the visitors follows these simple rules, Casino games will be both friendly and entertaining for everyone playing around.
