Find Great Tips That will Help Your Game

Focus on the bet probability and not the potential payout

One of the biggest mistakes that players make is to focus on how much money they will win from a bet, as opposed to how likely that bet is to win. It means that they often wager large sums of money on short odds or place bets on high odds just for the sake of it.

Neither of these things are advisable, so the best thing that you can do is just focus on the most likely outcomes (based on your hunches or research), place your bets accordingly, and then see how things go.

Acknowledge and avoid tilt

Pay attention to the signs of “tilt”. It is defined by aggressive and reckless play caused by frustration and anger. It’s common in poker, with players going on tilt following a bad beat or a series of bad hands. But it exists in all forms of gambling and can appear whenever you hit a run of bad luck.

Knowing how to spot tilt is the first step to avoiding it. Once you realize that you’re tilting, it’s time to take a break.

Take a few deep breaths, back away from the computer, and only return when the anger and frustration have subsided.

Don’t bet money you need for other things

If you only have 500€ in your bank account and you have a 500€ bill coming up at the end of the month, you shouldn’t be playing casino games or making sports bets. Don’t assume that you will win and make everything okay. There is never a guarantee that you will win, but there is always a guarantee that you’ll be in trouble if you don’t pay your bills.

If you are desperate to play some slots, poker, or other games, look for freebies. Poker freerolls and free bingo games are fun ways to win money without wagering anything. Of course, you won’t win huge amounts and as there are a lot of players, you probably won’t win anything at all. But at least your need will be satisfied.

Ask the dealers if you don’t know

Live dealers are there for the players. Sure, their job is to play the game, make conversation, and keep things interesting for you. But at the same time, they are there to help if you don’t know what you’re doing.

So, if you have an issue with a game and you’re not sure how something works, ask the dealer.

Of course, this only works if you are playing live casino games. But there are other ways to get help if not. You can check the game’s info screen/paytable or send a message to the customer support team.

Stay focused

Don’t lose focus and don’t allow yourself to be distracted when playing online casino games. This is especially true for games of poker, in which case you’re going up against other players and need to keep your wits about you.

But it’s also true for RNG casino games, as well as sportsbets. Any time that you’re not focused, there is a risk that you will make a mistake. There is also a chance that you will lose your best judgment and do something that you wouldn’t usually do.

This is why we often recommend abstaining from drugs and alcohol when gambling, as they cause you to lose focus and inhibitions and could get very costly very quickly.

Avoid American Roulette

American Roulette is one of the most common variants of Roulette found in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. It is also very common online. But if you want to give yourself the best possible chance of winning, it’s a game that you need to avoid.

American Roulette has terrible odds. It’s all down to the additional green “0” square, which essentially doubles the house edge compared with French Roulette and European Roulette.

Roulette is a fun game and it is also a very popular one, but if you’re going toplay, stick with French or European Roulette. The easiest way to find out which game you’re playing is to count the green segments. If there is only one, stay and play; if there are two, leave and look for another game.

Know when to fold/pass

As the old saying goes, “You need to know when to fold ‘em”. It originates in the game of poker, but it applies to all casino games and even to sportsbooks.

You shouldn’t play when you are annoyed or desperate to win. You shouldn’t play if you are not confident that your hand or bet can win. Sometimes, the best thing that you can do is sit back and let the game happen without wagering any money.

It’s a lesson that most gamblers have yet to learn. So, treat all of your bets like you would treat a long game of poker—fold when your hand is bad, play when it’s strong, and go big when it’s the strongest.

Look for bet boosts

If you’re placing wagers on a sportsbook, look for bet boosts before you bet. These promotions are very popular and can be found at a wide number of betting sites.

They work by boosting the odds of predetermined bet combinations, such as Team A to Win and Over 2.5 Goals. You shouldn’t bet on these boosts just for the sake of it, but if you were already going to bet on those outcomes, they are great.

Many sites will give you traditional odds right alongside boosted odds, so make sure you always choose the boosted variety, as there is no other difference between these two bets.

Find the best variant

If you like blackjack, don’t just play any old game of blackjack. There are dozens of different variants out there and the house edge can differ substantially. The same goes for roulette, where the difference between French Roulette and American Roulette will shock you.

When you find a favorite game, make sure you look for the best possible variant. It should have a high RTP or a low house edge. It should also be suitable with regards to the betting limits and the sort of features you like.

Remember, no two games are the same, even if they follow the same basic format.

Always check the terms and conditions

Terms and conditions are everywhere these days and most of us habitually avoid them. But that’s never a good idea with online casinos.

Not reading the bonus terms and conditions could cause you to miss out on credits, spins, and other bonus perks. There may be a hefty wagering requirement, a low win limit, or a payment exclusion that targets your favorite method.

Payment terms and conditions are also important, as they tell you about minimum/maximum deposit and withdrawal limits, as well as pending withdraw times and any hidden fees you need you know about.
