When you are having an amazing time going to the casinos and enjoying their hospitality, has it ever occurred to you why the casinos are so welcoming and rewarding? Why are casinos the only businesses that are always giving to their customers? How do they make profits when they are giving away things for free? To answer such questions, you can talk to an expert who can provide you the statistics for their profits. What this article will provide are the secrets of the casinos that they do not like sharing with their guests.
The house always wins
Never take this as a line from a Hollywood movie as it is 100% true for any casino in the world. The house is always making profits, and the slot machines are the money-making machines for them. Every game inside a casino has a house edge, which means games will be in favor of the house up to some level. Slot machines and keno are the games with a maximum house edge. It means that if you keep playing these games continuously, eventually, you will lose all your money. While the casinos do not mind celebrating big wins of the players, they are always hiding how much money the guests each day lose.
Complimentary services are not free
You must realize that the complimentary service that you feel is for free actually being paid from your gambling money. If you think complimentary drinks are free, think again. Do you receive a complimentary drink when you are sitting at the bar? No! You receive free drinks when you are playing at the tables. So when you lose a bet for $100 does, you get a “free drink” worth $10. You still lose $90. The same goes for the complimentary cards offered by the casino resorts. Do not fall for the membership cards unless you are planning to stay for a long time.
They make you forget the time
When you find a seat at the casino, have you noticed that the seats are so comfortable and cozy? The couches at the resting areas are almost as if placed only to make you feel sleepy. The carpets have psychedelic patterns, and the dim light effects make you forget the time. These are the tricks that casinos use on you, so you stay longer. They do not keep clocks and windows at the casinos because they do not want you to know what time it is. The longer you stay inside, the more you will play or spend on other things. It is a similar tactic used in clubs as well.
Card counting is not illegal
One thing that every new gambler would like to know is whether card counting is illegal, and the answer is no. There is no law that tells that you cannot use your own strategies during any casino game and card counting is just another strategy. But, the casinos do not appreciate card counters and may make you uncomfortable during the games if they know you are counting cards. In any case, they cannot get you arrested or assault you for using counting methods. However, you can get banned from entering the casinos forever simply because they do not like you.
