Do not Drink and Play

Alcoholic drinks are served generously inside the casino. Waiters and waitresses are almost always seen going the rounds calling out for cocktails. Yes, the free drinks are all yours to enjoy. Be aware, however, that they do take a toll on your brand of game, on your winning chances, and on the outcome of your decisions.

The offer of free drinks is a regular sight t the casino because it is one of the many ploys that it uses to increase the House edge. You see, players on skill-based games with clouded judgment are more likely to fail on making the winning decision. In the end, they lose their bets and let the casino win.

It is not wrong to enjoy at the casino. After all, gambling time is leisure time. But if you are concerned about the fate of your hard earned money, make sure that you take caution on taking in free drinks. When your system is loaded with alcohol you tend to go overboard. You lose your inhibitions, you lose your sense of reality and in the end, you lose a lot of money.

Do not drink while playing, especially when you are involved in games that require your decisions and judgment - Poker, Blackjack, and many other table games. You can always have your alcohol fix later, after you are through playing. Drink around to celebrate a win or recover from a loss. It is better that way than drinking in hopes to get an edge over the casino. That is never possible. The House edge is, after all, a given. Also, the comps like free alcohol drinks are usually just a ploy to make you play more, bet more, and lose more, which in a sense increases the advantage that the casino already has.

As much as it is not advisable to drink and play, it is also never advisable for anyone to drink and drive. That is a life-threatening reason you should refrain from drinking while inside the casino. If you are to drink after your gambling session, make sure that you have a driver with you to handle the wheel. It is better to be safe than sorry. Do not make your gambling habit an unpleasant experience by choosing decisions that will put your money and safety on the line. It would be best if you refrain from drinking alcohol altogether for its health and personal benefits. If you are to, make sure that your drinking habit is as regulated as your gambling habit. Moderation is the key.
