Casinos are welcoming and warm to their guests. They have a variety of games and other entertainment to keep their guests comfortable and busy for hours. They make their guests happy by offering them big rewards and complimentary drinks. But we must not forget that casinos are just like other businesses trying to get the trust of their customers in order to make profits. There are many subliminal strategies that casinos use to keep their guests playing for as long as possible. In a way, it is a fair practice by casinos as they are just another business, but on the other side, we must be aware of these things that casinos want to hide from their customers.
Some casino games are total rip-offs
While you may already know that casinos have a house edge on all the games, so they make less or more profits, experts say that some games are way more tilted towards casinos than you can imagine. There are games where a player cannot expect to win at all. Games like keno have odds in quintillions to rewards a win. Players need to realize it and stay away from the games that just look good but have the worst odds.
Casinos are designed to make you stay
Have you ever seen a window or a clock inside a casino? The answer would most probably be no. That is because the casinos do not want you to check the time of day to leave them. They want you to keep playing as long as you can, even though they promote responsible gambling. You may also find the seats being too comfortable, and the free drinks only make you sink in your seats even more. Also, not to forget the entertainment area with pole dancers to keep your interest in the games and drinks.
You may be getting watched
Casinos maintain high security to keep the violence and cheaters out of the casino. But it is not every day that a fight happens inside the casinos. So what does the security do during this time? Well, they might probably be watching you through the cameras. You need to be careful while handling your cards as a camera might be zoomed at your cards to provide information to the dealer. While this is still a hypothetical dramatic situation, why would you want to trust the security person behind the camera anyway?
But poker rooms might be safer
Since poker is a game where players play against each other and not the house, the security does not care much about whether you cheat or not. For games such as blackjack, roulette, and craps, security is a little more serious as the players play directly against the house. Poker does not make much money for the casinos. So the casinos might not waste much of their workforce to watch these games. However, this does not mean that you are free to cheat. If you get reported by an opponent and found guilty, you can get banned from the casino forever.
