Casinos have always been fairly sophisticated places. Even though it’s just a bit of fun, you can’t just turn up in a t-shirt and jeans. Most people dress up to play at their local casino.
When things transitioned online and people started playing from home, sure, you can wear what you like. You’re in your own home. However, there is still an etiquette for playing at a live casino.
When you play at a live casino and spin today, there may even be rules that are set out beforehand. These rules are established for the overall benefit of the players and the operators. It’s generally considered a bad idea to go against these rules as it could see you eliminated from the game, and blacklisted from a particular online casino.
Make sure the site is licenced and regulated by the UKGC
Keep your mind open to hone your skills
Set a daily limit for gambling
Don’t bet more than you can afford to lose
Never chase losses
Never gamble when upset, drunk or stressed
Don’t take risks without researching the consequences
Don’t gamble without knowing the rules of the game you’re playing
Never gamble using loans or bank credit
More specifically, as a general rule of thumb, you can guarantee that the below points are fairly general rules which will span across all live casinos.
Be courteous to the dealer when you start your session
Respect the house rules which will be explained to you at the start
Be polite to your fellow players
Make sure your Wi-Fi connection is good so you don’t detract from everyone’s gaming experience
Set a budget for every game
Always know the rules of the game you’re playing to avoid awkwardness and frustration
Do not be disrespectful or inappropriate to the dealer. This involves something you may deem a personal compliment.
Don’t use rude or abusive words
Refrain from discussing sexual, political and religious topics in the chat room
Do not interrupt the games with irrelevant questions
The cards you are dealt are not known by the dealer beforehand. If you are dealt a bad hand, it is not the dealer’s fault. Therefore, don’t blame them.
Never make threats to anyone in the game
Never attempt to cheat in any way or you will be thrown out of the game and possibly barred from playing at that live casino again
Remember, the dealers are human beings and sometimes they may make a mistake. The most important thing is to get everything in perspective in order to maximise the levels of enjoyment for you, the dealer, and all the other people in the live game.
Following the above do’s and don’ts will enhance everyone’s experience.
