‘Everyone makes mistakes’ is how the old saying goes. It’s true, everyone does make mistakes, but the place you want to avoid them is when you’re gambling. Whilst there is of course the opportunity to win on every game, some are kinder than others and some require certain skill sets. Placing poor bets or making ill thought out decisions can lead to punters losing a lot of money and getting into some serious debt. Knowing what to avoid will not only improve your odds but also make sure that you have fun. So lets have a look and breakdown the worst bets to make at a casino:
Although this is something that I’m sure seems blindingly obvious now it’s been pointed out, placing bets on a game that you don’t fully understand is one of the most common worst bets to make! This often happens when someone might be having a bad day on their usual casino game. Sick of the losing streak, they might decide to change things up, and switch to something new. For example, an experienced roulette player suddenly trying their luck at blackjack. Harmless right? Well not quite. No matter how straightforward a casino game may seem, there’s always an element of strategy and if your new then your lack of understanding and knowledge isn’t going to help. Try out new games with free spins or watch a tutorial and avoid making one of the worst bets you can.
A day when nothing seems to be going your way and lady luck has long deserted you? We’ve all been there and in these nasty situations it’s better to just cut your losses and leave. I’m not saying that some spiritual powers or even bad karma are dealing you bad hand after bad hand. But rather after a few bad tries a player can begin to stress and find it difficult to concentrate, which in turn leads to more bad bets. This expensive catch 22 isn’t worth it and chasing your losses can lead down a long and slippery slope. So before you make this mistake, remember that there’s nothing wrong with calling it a day and in fact the ability to walk away is a sign of a good punter.
Slot machines are a firm favourite across the board. They’re simple, easy to play and because of technological advancement, can be extremely exciting. So how can just pressing a button be included as one of the worst bets to make at a casino? Well, progressive slot machines offer some of the worst odds for a player in an entire casino. They work by putting a percentage of your payback into the giant jackpot that is growing constantly. It’s this giant pot that draws people in when in reality you have more chance of winning the lottery. The only reason that jackpot is so big is thanks to all the other chumps betting on it before…
