Whether you are starting out in the casino business, or you have a gambling and blackjack background, when you hear the phrase “The house always wins,” you may have an idea of what to expect. But in any case, you know that this is not always the case. There are many game strategies that can be employed, and some of them will make you a better player and some of them will make you a “better man,” as the saying goes.
In blackjack, the saying would be more like, “The dealer sometimes has a better hand than you,” although the saying would also be much more general, and apply to many other types of gambling games. The saying reflects the balance the casino held, which was built into the game.
In Vegas, there are many “house colors” which most gamblers will agree with. These are green, red, and even orange. Although it isn’t official, many of the hotel and casino managers will go out of their way to “paint” their hotels and restore the ” Lorch” (named for the polish used on casino tables) to make it appear as Las Vegas did before the building of the graded ceilings, windows, skylights, and doors.
So, one can say that there is a certain glamour quotient to gambling in Vegas, when compared to other gambling towns in New Jersey, Atlantic City, and even Sam’s Town. glamour quotient? Oh, yeah….
All of this “glory,” of course, is brought to you by the “house edge,” which is theedge the casino holdsover from the games it offers. This edge is sometimes referred to as the “house edge,” and depending on what game you’re playing, will appear in various forms. Sometimes you will have theidea the dealer’s got you spotted, making you an easy target. Other times, you will simply have had a run of bad luck. However, if you remember the $2,000 tip the casino employee gave you, you know that luck, if you have it, will come innings.
So, that being said, if you do have luck on your side, you can let your winners run wild, while you keep watch, and eventually beat the house. Before you, you will find the perfect “parable” (worthy prey) at the blackjack table, or the perfect day to steal the casino’s hard earned cash. Perhaps you will be so lucky as torival the house edge on a single deck. If you do happen to get lucky, be sure you can cover every possible combination on the table. Make sure to bet enough that you will reach the highest rung of the rung slots.
If you do happen to reach the top of the house edge, take your winnings and go to the cashier cage at the casino. There is, believe it or not, a system of coupons upon which the casino relies for covering your losses. Most often, you will get your money back plus one complimentary coupon for every $100 you spend at the casino. This complimentary money is called “VIP points.”
VIP points can be earned by clients who exchange them for merchandise, services, cash, or entries into sweepstakes and contests. So, once you have accumulated enough VIP points, you should find them ready to hand out like so many other successful bracelets.
