General Casino Rules You Should Always Follow

There are no real rules posted outside of casino floors besides the usual “No one under age 21 allowed.” However, there are a number of rules that everyone is expected to follow when walking the floor or playing games in the casino rooms. Following these rules will ensure that you have an enjoyable experience and can go home satisfied with your gaming.

First off, know that casinos in Las Vegas offer free alcoholic drinks when you are playing. It is customary to tip the cocktail waitress, and not doing so will often result in her not coming back to you or doing something to your drink. It may not be a fantastic idea on the waitress’s part, but it still happens. Tipping keeps everyone happy and you get a very cheap drink.

Be sure that you always fully understand a game before you start playing. Sit down and read everything on a slot machine and if you don’t understand ask someone nearby. Sometimes the machines are confusing, so read carefully so that you don’t waste your money.

Understand table signs. These tell you how much a card game requires for a minimum bet. This can be from $1 to hundreds of dollars at high roller tables. Choose wisely, but before the game starts you have the opportunity to leave.
Casino slot machines no longer toss out tons of coins like in the old days. Machines now use a printed slip that you carry to the cashier. Do not lose this slip, because if you do then you lose all of your winnings. If you win a large amount do not flaunt your slip! Just put it your pocket and go straight to the casino cashier to collect your winnings. Also keep in mind that table dealers do not keep cash.
