Casino Games Online: Top 10 Tips

These 10 tips are going to help you to win more money at online casinos 

Today, we have put together 10 tips that will change the way you play at online casinos for the better. Trust us! 

#1 – Choose Blackjack over Poker 

There are so many reasons why playing Blackjack is much better than playing Poker. Firstly, the house has a much lower edge in Blackjack. 

Secondly, you are only playing against the house (not the other players at the table) so the vibes at the table are so much better. 

Thirdly, Blackjack as a bonus jackpot – if you play the Ace of Spades with either of the black jacks you can win an extra bonus in most casinos.  

#2 – 11 is one of the best Blackjack hands 

Another way to improve your chances of winning while playing online is to know the theory behind the games you play. 

For example, getting an 11 in Blackjack is the 3rd best option in the game (behind a 20 and a 21). Why? Because, when you have an 11 you won’t go bust if you take a third card and there is a really good chance that you will score 21. 

#3 – Never bet on a single number in Roulette 

Most Roulette Wheels have 36 numbers and a 0 on them. While it can be tempting to bet on one of these numbers and get the big payout – you are actually far better off betting on Odd & Evens, Black & Reds, or Highs & Lows. 

You are 18X more likely to win on an either-or bet than you are on a single number. While the jackpot may be smaller, you are much less likely to win one of these bets multiple times than you ever are to win on a single number. 

#4 – Read the small print 

Online casinos will give you free bets and/or spins when you join them for the first time. Some will even give you daily free rewards. However, these freebies cannot be used on everything. Sometimes there is a limit to how much money you can win with a free bet. 

To be safe, before you use a free bet or spin – make sure that you have read the small print and know exactly what you can use them for.  

#5 – Practice before you log on 

Before you start playing casino games online you should warm up. When you are putting your own money on the line, you want to make sure that you are playing at your best. So find a free Poker or Blackjack site and play a few rounds until you have found your groove. Then, you can log onto the casino. 

Note – if you have never played a game before you should always practice on a free version before playing it for money. 

#6 – Avoid the big jackpots 

In physical casinos, the places that are the brightest and most exciting are where you are most likely to lose your money. The equivalent of this in online casinos is the games on the front page. 

These games will have big jackpots and exciting gimmicks. Avoid these tables – you are very unlikely to win money here. Instead, go and find tables that have smaller buy-ins and smaller jackpots. It is better to win a few small jackpots than never win a big one. 

#7 – Don’t drink while you play 

We know that lots of you like to drink while you play because you are playing to relax – that is fine. However, if you are playing to win then you should skip the booze. 

If you want to have the best chance of winning a game of Poker or beating the house in a round of Blackjack then you need to be performing at your best – drinking will prevent this. 

#8 – Card counting and team tactics do not work online 

If you are interested in the history of casinos then we recommend looking up the MIT team. There was a film made about them called 21. The MIT team was the first group of people to really make money from card counting and team tactics at casinos. 

Sadly, these kinds of tricks don’t work anymore – so don’t waste your time trying them out at an online casino. You could get yourself permanently banned. 

#9 – Don’t chase losses 

If you are having a bad day then it is better to walk away than it is to chase your losses and dig yourself a bigger hole. 

Remember that casinos are designed to take your money, and the more frustrated you get at your losses, the more likely it is that you are going to lose more.

If you feel tempted to start chasing losses then we recommend logging off and making yourself take a break. 

#10 – Set a budget before you start  

If you want to make sure that you are making a profit at online casinos then you need to set yourself a budget before you play. Don’t spend more than you have set aside and never put your winnings back into this budget. 

You are more likely to lose that money than to make a profit on it. On average a casino makes a profit of 10% on every single game it plays. Playing with your winnings means you will statistically lose at least 10% of them.
