Tips and Tricks for Beginners
There are plenty of things that you will learn about online casinos as you start to visit them more often, but here are some tips and tricks to get you started. One of the first pieces of advice is to make sure that you never play while you are high on alcohol or drugs because you will no doubt make stupid mistakes and take silly risks, risks which you would otherwise not usually take.
Try and avoid placing too many unrealistic bets. This means that you should always check the odds and seriously consider why you are placing that particular bet. For example, if you deposit $/€/£100 and you want to play roulette, you could bet in several different ways, but to avoid losing that bankroll in just five minutes, consider carefully where you are going to place your chips.
Your lucky number might be number 8, so if you place $/€/$10.00 on number 8 (otherwise known as a straight up bet), you would win $/€/£360.00 (plus your $/€/£10.00 stake returned). The odds are 36:1 and placing a total of ten individual $/€/£10.00 bets would therefore give you just ten chances for the ball to land on the number 8.
It’s possible, and the returns would be enormous, but the likelihood of number 8 actually coming in is quite low, so you would need to place several ‘sensible’ bets as well, just to cover your back. You could get lucky and hit number 8 twice in ten spins of the roulette wheel, but this is risky betting.
Always remember to double-check your stake prior to actually placing a bet. This can be applied to ANY casino game that you choose to play. Quite often, the starting stake on a slot machine is set to a default stake which is higher than many of us can afford.
If you want to learn more about a game without risking any cash, remember that you can also play in the free play/practice mode. This is an ideal mode for learning how to play on a game for the first time. One other piece of advice is to ALWAYS read through the Terms and Conditions when accepting ANY online casino bonus.
