Las Vegas NV – the place where you can either make big money or break the bank by losing all your hard earned cash.
The place goes by many names but the bottom line is that Vegas is a shit load of fun.
You have to be careful though as Las Vegas place isn’t the best of budget friendly destinations but, if you’re willing to save up a couple grand just to go, you’re guaranteed to have memories that will last forever and you just might get a little lucky…
And the saying “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” isn’t always true. This is what Vegas is famous for and just like any other gambling based location in the world, people go there to spend hundreds & even thousands of dollars in hopes of winning big. But how exactly do you do that? Is there a tactic or strategy to go by?
While I was sitting at the McCarron International Airport in downtown Las Vegas, I decided to take a look on the web and do a little research for myself. Even practicing with online casinos can help you get used to the way these games work, effectively learning the tricks of the trade.
When push came to shove, I actually found a few “tactics” that worked for me after browsing through various blogs, online casino websites & forums that ended up putting a few extra bills in my pocket. So without much further ado, let’s proceed so we can help you win some money!
Gambling on the Las Vegas Strip
1.) Don’t spend too much time at the same machine.
When you get to the point to where you’re winning continuously on a slot machine, it’s the greatest feeling in the world! But at some point, you’re luck is going to run out. When you start losing out, print your ticket, and hop to another machine.
This also goes hand in hand if the machine you’re using isn’t putting out any money. Go for a couple of round and, if the machine doesn’t produce cash, move on.
2.) Pick your seats strategically when gambling.
Winning money at a slot machine is already based on luck – so it only makes sense to do what you can to get that luck a little more in your favor. Instead of sitting at the first slot machine you see or the first seat you can find at the blackjack table, do some research and see what areas are putting out good money.
Slot machines are based on numbers – after all, it is a numbers game.
3.) Cut your losses & leave the table.
Similar to the first tip, this goes for any game while gambling. If you take a seat, begin gambling, and loose money, then leave. Don’t let your ego get the best of you unless you have the extra cash flow to let it go.
4.) Try Roulette, Black Jack, or Scraps.
Slot machines are notorious for eating cash, trust me, I know. So why not try your game at a card game?
Most of the winning I’ve ever gotten in a casino while gambling was either at the black jack table or playing roulette. Playing games like this will not only be more sociable, but it will build your skill as a player and you can learn additional new techniques from playing.
5.) If you win money, save your winnings.
If you’re one of the lucky few who actually win some of that cash money at the casino, save it!
Instead of using all your money to gamble with, bank at least 50% of your winnings. The will ensure that you come out ahead and, if you lost your winning streak, you won’t loose all of the money you won earlier during your las vegas strip hopping streak.
When it comes down to it, winning big in Vegas takes a lot of luck but if you’re willing to do your leg work and some research on how to win, you could just be the lucky bastard to get away with a couple thousand dollars more than what you came in with.
