How to Win Big in Vegas
There's nothing quite as fun as a night in the casino. Unless you're losing. If you're always leaving with less than you came with, you're doing something wrong.
Big jackpots are rare at a casino. But winning big isn't. If you know what to do, you can build a fortune a few hundred at a time. The trick is to know what to play and when to play it. We've got everything you need to know right here.
The first step to winning big is playing the games with the best odds. We all know that the house only offers games where they have an advantage. Your job is to find the games where they have the least advantage. For example, roulette gives the house a 5.26% edge. That means that over time, they keep $5.26 for every $100 you spend -- at the very least.
Also avoid games with high minimums. Baccarat only has a 1% house edge. But the minimum bets are high meaning you'll lose big.
If you want to win big, avoid those two games. Play almost anywhere else and you'll get maximum bang for your buck.
Poker is a great game to play to win big. That's because house odds don't factor into it at all. You don't have to lose anything -- if you know what you're doing. The trick to winning big at poker is to pick your battles. Staying in a hand doesn't mean that you'll win it. If you're staying in half or more of the hands that you get, you need to raise your starting hand requirements.
Staying in the pot is another losing move. If you don't think you're going to win, bail. You'll keep more money to help you raise the pot when you have a real chance at winning big.
Be more picky about the hands you bet on and you'll take home much more money.
