Wait a minute, 2017 already happened? Whoa, that was fast! I was having so much fun gambling in 2017 that the time must have flown by without me even noticing.
The thing is, I wasn’t having all of this fun just because I was gambling. I was having such a good time because I knew HOW to gamble in order to maximize the amount of fun I was having. If you would like to get in on some of this crazy fun, I have compiled a few tips for you to follow which might help your 2018 go just as quickly as my 2017 did.
Learn a New Game
One of the most effective things that you can do when trying to have more fun gambling in 2018 is to learn a new gambling game. Unless you have played every gambling game known to man, how can you possibly know exactly which ones you like? It is highly possible that the one game that you would like the most is on the list of games that you have not tried yet.
For this reason, I recommend trying out a game that you are not used to playing. If you have already played every casino game, you could move on to trying some sports bets. If all you ever do is make sports bets, you should try your hand at the poker table to see how your No Limit Texas Hold’em skills are looking.
In addition to finding your favorite game, this tip is useful because of the simple fact that variety helps to keep things fresh. There is no denying that if you play the same game every day for ten years compared to play five different games for ten years, you will be much more tired of playing that one game by the end of those ten years.
Having a number of games to call upon when you are bored allows you to hop around and experience different graphics, different games, different payouts, and different rules which will add some spice to your gambling life. In order to see a list of new games that you could be learning, check out our game guide page.
Join a New Gambling Site
In the same spirit of learning new games and keeping things fresh, it would also behoove you to widen your horizons as far as what gambling sites you play on. Even if you enjoy playing the same game on each site, the experience from site-to-site might be completely different. It is entirely possible that one game which you do not enjoy much on one site could end up being your favorite game in a different online casino.
This advice doesn’t just go for the internet, it can apply to brick and mortar gamblers as well. Going to the same building and seeing the same people so that you can play the same games can get a little boring over time. It is important to try out different land-based casinos so that you know exactly where to find what you are looking for and you keep your favorite games fresh.
For those who are interested in doing more research on what sites they should join, you can check out the casino ranking page. These reviews were done by measuring a number of factors such as customer service, reliability, game selection, and bonus promotions in order to find out which sites are truly the best for their customers.
Take a Summer Trip to Vegas
No one can deny that one of the hottest times to be in the city of Las Vegas is in the summertime. When I say “hottest”, I am referring to the gambling action in addition to the hot desert climate.
What makes the summertime so sizzling? Well, first of all, the World Series of Poker is going down at the Rio Casino from May 29th to July 17th. This event features hundreds of poker tournaments and cash games and the competition is notoriously soft. These people seem to have already written their money off to travel expenses and they play like they don’t have a need for money at all.
If you are a high roller who is looking to maybe get your face on televisions around the world, you could partake in the World Series of Poker Main Event which costs $10,000 to enter and runs from July 2nd to July 14th. The first place winner of this event usually gets around 10 million dollars, which is not bad for a little trip to Vegas!
Another reason why summertime is good for gambling in Vegas is that there are a TON of people gambling in Vegas casinos during these months. By the time June rolls around, the whole strip is alive and throbbing with alcohol and fun times. You will never find yourself sitting alone at a table in a quiet smoky casino wondering where all the fun is happening.
There is no better atmosphere to gamble in than when you are surrounded by thousands of people who are also trying to have fun gambling. This is especially true for all of you poker players out there who want to play against other players who don’t seem to care much about losing money. This is by far the most fun and profitable time to be in Las Vegas, so book your trip now and don’t forget to pack your gambling shoes.
Stick to Low House Edges
In order to understand this tip, you first need to know what a house edge even means. A house edge is defined as the built-in advantage that each casino has in each of the different games that they offer.
That’s right folks, the casino does not have an equal edge from game to game. Some games are extremely unfair for the gambler, but some actually allow the gambler to come close to breaking even in the long run.
I want you all to ask yourself a question right now. If you had the choice between having more losing gambling sessions or more winning gambling sessions, which one would you choose?
Obviously, most people want to have more winning sessions, but they do not think of the house edge like this.
The higher the house edge of a certain game is, the less of a chance you have of winning each bet or session. For example, Keno carries a house edge of around 25%, making it one of the worst games that you can play in a casino.
On the other hand, the lower the house edge of a certain game is, the better chance you have of winning each bet or session. For example, blackjack carries a house edge of only 1%, which is actually possible to beat if you are skilled in keeping track of how many cards have already been used. There are numerous reports of players being kicked out of casinos for trying to do this, so I do not recommend trying it.
The point that I am trying to make here is that if you focus on games that have a lower house edge, you will have winning sessions more often. Winning sessions are extremely fun and having more of them in 2018 by focusing on the low house edge games will increase the amount of fun that you have per dollar that you deposit.
Attend the 2018 Winter Olympics and Bet On the Outcomes
It’s not every year that the human race gets to experience the extraordinary event known as the Olympics. However, 2018 is going to be one of those years, which makes for some great betting action for gamblers all around the world.
This year’s Olympics will feature winter sports only, seeing how it is called the 2018 Winter Olympics. This event will take place from February 9th to February 25th in Pyeongchang County, South Korea.
The 2018 Winter Olympics will include over 100 events that span 15 different sports. Some of the sports that will be available for betting in this Winter Olympics includes cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, snowboarding, ski jumping, ice hockey, speed skating, luge, skeleton, and figure skating, just to name a few.
Most people watch these Olympic events whether they bet on them or not, so why not make them more fun to watch by betting on them? You might notice your coworkers and peers constantly talking about Olympic achievements that happened so watching these events is also a good idea if you want to keep up with these conversations.
There is no better way to get motivated to watch an event than to place a wager on the outcome of that event.
You could even plan a trip to go witness some of these events that you plan on betting if the tickets are not already sold out.
The tickets for attending the 2018 Winter Olympics will range anywhere from $15 to $1300, depending on how early you bought the tickets and the popularity of the individual sport that you are trying to attend. According to the internet, the flight to South Korea in February from the USA is around $1,500, so I recommend this for only our high stakes readers who plan on making large bets which might cover this trip if they are correct.
Everybody likes to have more fun whether they are a college student or a senior citizen. Gambling gives people over the age of 18 a way to have more fun, as long as they know exactly where to look.
If you want to increase the amount of fun that you are having when you gamble you can start by doing things such as finding new games to play, finding new sites to play on, going to Vegas in the summer, searching out low house edges, and attending special events that you plan on betting. These are just a few examples of some of the things that can be done to maximize your fun per dollar, and I encourage you to take advantage of as many as possible.
