When it comes to gambling, learning the rules before you begin to play is the number one place to start for anyone hoping to win. You can’t just hope to strike it lucky, since you’re far more likely to be playing against the house and more experienced players than beginners, in every game you try.
The second rule to follow is to learn the various gambling systems that pro players employ in games like blackjack and roulette – while this take the fun out of the games for many, it is a system in which you’re able to win more often than lose – though as with any game of chance, there’s always risk.
The final rule to follow is that having fun is the main point of any kind of gambling. If you’re not enjoying yourself, then take a break or pick a new game to focus on.
How Pros Play…
Roulette: When it comes to the game of roulette, a popular one in movies and casino floors, there are many systems you can use – but the main gambling tip to try is to pick a quadrant and place your bets on the set of numbers in that quadrant. In order to be successful with this method, you won’t switch to a different quadrant until you win, and you’ll avoid betting only on a single number only.
The second rule professionals follow is that every time a wager is lost, they bet more – and specify up to what final amount they’re willing to part with before they start playing – as if they hit that final betting amount, they stop playing to avoid losing even more in the long run. It’s easy to walk away and try another day than dig a hole financially.
Blackjack: To win at blackjack, you need to get your cards as close to 21 as possible while beating the Dealers hand. How? Card counting is the number one way to win at blackjack, and unlike most assume, it’s really not too difficult to learn – which is why casinos aren’t fond of card counters. Online sites don’t have this problem, though it’s wise to rotate between them if you win often, and if you’ve got a blackjack strategy chart, then you’re well on your way to start winning.
Baccarat: Just like in blackjack, the aim is to get your hand to a specific number – but since you have 3 betting options, the Player, the Dealer or a Tie, the bet that pros focus on most often is the Dealer or the Player. If you happen to be stuck when trying to make a choice, always bet on the Dealer because of the ever present house edge which gives them the advantage in most situations.
Other Pro Tips:
Never bet or play when you’re feeling emotional – and this includes not only feeling incredibly frustrated, but also when you’re very happy. Pros know that betting should only be done when you are completely level-headed.
Likewise, never gamble when you’ve been drinking as this leads to impaired judgement and you’re unlikely to follow your betting strategy.
