Casinos are known to attract more players by giving them an experience that they never forget but in an effort to earn the most profit and becomes successful as a business. In this effort, there are several things they simply do not want the players to know. Here I have compiled a list of the casino industry’s best-kept secrets for you to know and get prepared.
1. Some Games are High in Delivering Profit
If you know what you’re doing and practice it well, you can actually win some huge sums of money. You can make millions of dollars’ worth of profit by just card counting. Casinos might often stop you from playing at their tables if you are suspected of card counting, at the same time the casinos will not advertise this fact.
2. Some Games Have Lower Winning Odds Compared to Others
It is an open secret that every game on the casino floor has a slight edge towards the house. What you might not be aware of is that some games give the house a bit more of a benefit than others.
Such games are popularly also known as ‘carnival games’ as these are extremely hard to win and take home the big prize on a carnival game. Some table games like Caribbean Stud Poker, Three Card Poker, and Let It Ride Poker are the three carnival games.
3. You Are Being Watched All Around
Do you know the biggest casinos have over 20,000 cameras keeping an eye on every inch of the casino floor and other venues within the premises? These cameras catch live footage and are watched by a security team who can keep an eye on your every move. This also means you are safe here and will be treated as an absolute priority. The negative side is that big brother is watching you every second.
4. Everything Is Geared to Entice Your Senses
Yes, that’s true. Do you know everything in a casino is set up to manipulate your senses and keep you playing in the casino? There you would not find clocks? The casino do not want you to keep track of time. No windows? The casino doesn’t want you to know whether it is day time or night time. The cash-out desk is located at the back of the floor. The casino wants you to navigate through the entire casino before you leave. Complimentary food and drinks? The casino doesn’t even want you leaving to feed and water yourself.
5. If You Are Cheating, They Will Catch You
Cheating is totally unwanted. Secondly, if you do cheat then you will be found. The level of security inside casinos is so immense, it’s almost impossible to cheat and get away with it. Secondly, the poker community adheres to a strict set of unwritten rules. The moment somebody breaks away from those rules, they are called upon it and mob rule prevails.
6. The Chips Trick
If you request $50 of casino chips and the casino provides you two $25 chips and not ten $5 chips, this is not because the casino is trying to make your life easier by giving you fewer chips to carry around but the casino knows that if you have just two $25 chips you are more likely to whack one of those chips down and if you had ten $5 chips you could bet slower and more reasonably.
7. The Dealers do not bother
When you suffer a huge loss, the cold eyes of the dealer do not care a single bit about your loss. The fact is that the dealers have experienced a brutal reality of those harsh losses and they understand and appreciate how gut-wrenching the tables can be. They will have all sympathy for you and will be biting their tongue to tell you to walk away but that’s not the casino policy. The casino doesn’t allow the dealer to help you stop losing and secretly celebrates every win you experience.
8. Dealers Are Not Always Honest
The simple act of taking a chip and slipping it into their pocket every now and again is one of the very common forms of theft in a casino. Almost every time dealers steal from casinos and they get caught and fired. Sometimes the odd thief does slip through the net. Do you know, some casinos even publicly display their thieving dealers by arresting them at the table and parading them through the casino to show that such activity will not be tolerated?
Above–listed are some of those facts that no casino would like their players to know and now, when you know it all, I am sure you will be able to appear any casino now with more information, alertness, and confidence.
