Re: Off to the casino/Gonna play Blackjack for the 1st time!!!! Any advice?
They say the first time you smoke crack you get addicted. I know of one person who smoked it and didn't get addicted, but I know of some others for whom addiction resulted. It's not as if crack doesn't have a reputation for being highly addictive, and so most people stay away from it altogether. Even though they may do other drugs like cannabis or even snort cocaine, you don't run into too many people who don't hold crack fairly well in contempt. It has always been taboo and it always will be, regardless of its defenders and pushers. There is not one good thing that will come of it and everybody knows it. If that's not the view of the people you know then you know some people you need to steer clear of, because they have problems....I'm sorry, we were talking about gambling, weren't we?

lol I see your point and thanks! I go once a year win or lose.

Love that casino by the way...IN THE MONEY and MILLION PENNIES are faves, but if you ever play video poker, the Roadhouse, within walking distance, has 9/6 machines of all denominations, which is awesome....

Yep, I'll do the Roadhouse and Horseshoe> It's like a mini Vegas.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

learn your basic strategy charts first.

For more advanced playing you could learn card counting systems. A good program to practice with is Casino Verite Blackjack V5.

Roulette is where it's at. Even if you're just betting on colors it's a 50/50 chance. Much better odds than many of the other games going on at casinos.

Go to Gold Strike in Tunica MS every New Years Day. It has become a tradition.

Usually I just kick back and hit the slots, eat and drink.

Tomorrow I think I'll try some blackjack. I've played with the guys many times, I know how to play. But the casinos, that's a different deal.

Any tips?

Never split 10s
always split aces
Never take a hit if the dealer shows a 6 or less up card UNLESS you have 11


Good Luck

I personally like roulette, since I always win. I gotta go back up and gamble again soon, car needs timing belt done. LOL

1) Leave your credit cards at home.

2) Take only what you can afford to lose.

3) If you win any more than double what you've taken, quit immediately and walk out or enjoy the rest of the nights free entertainment.

4) Don't let it become habit.

I was a BlackJack dealer for 5 years.

Ya the "house" wins but the dealer doesn't always.
HAVE FUN. Tell the dealer that you are playing for the first time - he/she will be happy to help you, (I loved dealing to "newbies"!) so will other players at the table. Finding the right dealer will help - it won't help you win - but you are going to enjoy yourself.

Good luck!!!

This is very true. My first time playing the dealer knew I was a newbie and helped me the whole time.

Like a few times when I wanted a hit and she politely said " NO YOU DON'T"..

As a professional Gambler, my advice is to stay away from Blackjack unless you have 100x the minimum bet. You would be better off going to the poker tables. You don't play against the house
 Quoting: muthrluvbne


You aren't very professional apparently. I have never left a blackjack table without winnings in my pocket. We cleaned the dealer's tray out a Kewadin Casino in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. That was a good night. Each started with $200, and we each left with over $2000..

To the OP.. Set a limit on what you want to spend. And only play with that limit. Each time you win a hand, place your winnings in your pocket, and leave them there. Do NOT take those chips out of your pocket until you are ready to cash in.

Also, you need to face the dealer head on.. One Vs. One, either that or find a table with experienced players.. The downfall to blackjack is playing at a table full of idiots who don't know how to bet against the house.

If you are having a streak of bad luck, sit out a few hands until the next shuffle comes.

Try to find a 2 deck table.. Easier to count. If you are lucky you may find a one deck table, but the minimum bet will be higher on these tables, usually between $5-$10 Min.

If you play your cards right, you could leave there with a wad of cash. Make sure you use your splits, double downs, etc etc, when appropriate.

And lastly, DO NOT GET DRUNK! You will start betting higher and lose all your winnings. Easy to get fucked up with free drinks coming at ya.. And remember, Always tip your waitress/waiter at a casino or you will never see them again, and you will go thirsty!
