As promised, here is the last installment of this series for gambling virgins. I am actually hoping that at this point, you are a gambling virgin no more. In any case, whether you have not gambled before or you have had some experience, these tips can still help you out while you are at the tables.
This is a very general piece of advice, I am well aware of that. In most every endeavor – from grocery shopping to car buying, you will always be advised to shop around. There must be a reason that this maxim is preached a lot – it works to your advantage! So how do you apply shopping around to gambling? In many ways as well. If you are interested in trying out sports betting, then shop around for the bookmaker that has the best odds. Contrary to uninformed opinions, not all bookmakers have the same odds. Shop around and find a better deal. If you are interested in playing at a casino – whether online or offline – then it would be better to look around and see which casinos have which offers. Again, not all casinos are the same. Shop around.
Learn to walk away – even when you are winning.
This is perhaps one of the hardest things to do, especially if you are new to gambling. If you find yourself on a long winning streak, you will probably be tempted to keep going. Trust me, it will not last forever. My suggestion is that you psych yourself up before gambling. Set your limits and tell yourself that you are going to stick to them.
