How to Make Money in Casino Gambling
For most people, gambling is about betting your money and losing it. We lose money in casino gambling in any number of ways: because we play games that are designed to beat the player; because we play with incorrect strategy; or because we don't manage our money properly.
If all you want is to have a good time and losing money is no big deal to you, you're probably okay with this. But if you want to make money in casino gambling instead, you need to take steps to avoid the bankroll bust that happens the majority of gamblers.
Let's see what we can do to make money in casino gambling.
Play the Right Games
A cardinal rule of serious gamblers (those who play to make money) is to play only the games that you can win. Actually, you can win any game. We're talking about games you can win consistently (i.e. fairly regularly) when you play it with correct strategy.
Example games are blackjack, video poker, poker and craps.
BLACKJACK - is a favorite of professional gamblers. Certain rule variations in blackjack (e.g. single-deck, surrender option) increase a player's chances of winning while others (e.g. dealer draws on soft 17) decrease it. Playing with basic strategy charts, card counting and other techniques can let you win often enough to make a living off blackjack!
VIDEO POKER - Strategy cards like in blackjack apply to different video poker games including Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better. Unfortunately the really profitable video poker games are fast disappearing in casino gambling today.
POKER - Poker is the only game in casino gambling where you do not deal with the house at all. You are up against other gamblers, not the house. Anyone can win, but it is the best player who will win the most pots in the long run. If you are into skillful card playing and mind-reading, poker is for you.
CRAPS - This noisy dice game is one of the best and worst of casino gambling. How can you make money? First, you should stick to the safest bets such as pass line and come bets and free odds bets. Second, learn to spot a good craps shooter. A good shooter can control the dice so they win often. When you see an expert craps shooter, bet on their side and you will win as much as they do.
Play with the Strategies
Once you have settled on a game you want to play, focus on that and study it to the core. Master the game and its strategies. In this way you maximize your odds of making money through that game. Do NOT jump from one game to another without ever mastering one. If it's poker, it's poker and not craps.
Manage Your Bankroll Wisely
Finally there is the money. No matter how beatable a game is, no matter how perfect the strategy you learn, if you over-bet or chase losses or bet money you need badly, you're bound to lose. Please be careful with your money. If you think you have a gambling problem, you aren't fit to be a serious gambler and you will only lose instead of making money.
Casino gambling is both enjoyable AND profitable. Follow our advice and you will reap the rewards of smart and responsible gambling.
