The Ten Golden Rules

The Ten Golden Rules of Gaming


  1. Playing casino games is supposed to be fun. Enjoy yourself, and if you’re not having fun, don’t play.
  2. Always know the casino’s advantage before you play.
  3. If you must play, decide upon these things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time.
  4. Only raise your bets when called for by your betting strategy. Never raise your bets as a way to win back your losses.
  5. No matter your schedule, do not play when tired, drinking, irritated, or upset.
  6. Keep accurate, up-to-date records.
  7. Only play casino games with the money you can afford to lose and still have fun.
  8. How much you don’t lose is far more important than how much you win.
  9. Be happy with small wins.
  10. Remember, the true contest is not you against the casino. It’s you against yourself.
