Land Based Casino FAQ
What should I look for in a land based casino?
American land-based casinos come in a wide variety of flavors, but some stand out more than others. Certainly, you should look at the variety of games on offer - make sure at a minimum they have slots, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, video poker and craps - as well as the comps (or complimentary items) being offered by your chosen US casino. Do try to avoid getting taken in by the glitz and glamour of many of the big casinos in the USA (although having a nice environment to gamble in certainly does help). Excitement and energy in the atmosphere is important, as you want to feel that thrill when you win. You might also look for American casinos that offer shows or fine dining, as these are great distractions to celebrate a win with, or commiserate after a loss.
Should I stay at the casino's hotel?
You can often obtain great US casino resort deals that make staying at a casino's hotel worthwhile. However, it is important to look for packages that can make it worth your while. Also, staying at the casino's hotel also makes gambling really convenient, so if you want to wander down from your room at 4am and spin some slots you won't need to take a cab.
What can I bet on at local casinos?
Almost everything, and certainly a huge range of casino games and sports events. Slot machines will take up a lot of the casino floor at any venue, and your local brick and mortar site will also have a full complement of blackjack, roulette, baccarat and poker tables to join. Lotteries and bingo games are very popular with US players, and many casinos also offer race books for betting on top events.
How do I get comps at a local casino?
Simply by sitting at a table or a slot machine you are likely to be offered free alcohol or free food (or even both). Do be aware that drinking alcohol can impede your gambling ability, so be conscious of your consumption (especially of you are gambling at higher limits).
Are land based casinos safe?
Yes they are, playing near your location is always a wise choice. While there will always be local American casinos that attempt to take advantage of the unwary gambler, most land-based casinos have super high security that monitors casino patrons and employees to prevent cheating. Governments also regulate and audit gambling institutions to ensure they are playing by the rules. Las Vegas, Atlantic City and others are heavily regulated and have lots of security.
How much can I win at a brick and mortar casino?
The limit really depends on the casino you are playing at. Some large US casinos will be able to handle immensely large bets from their high rollers. When it comes to specific gambling games, like slots, there is often set limits on the jackpots you can win. Again, larger jackpots are often found in larger casinos. Local casinos near you may have somewhat lower limits.
