Yo fellow pit go-ers. I have a stag doo this weekend. However on Friday we are having a little flutter in the casino.

Im looking for advice as i have never been before! I kind of know the rules to the popular games...poker, blackjack and roulette.

I am limiting myself to £50 but im looking for anyones experteise(sp?) and some real life experience if you have had any.

Poker is the most interesting (in my opinion) and gives you the most opportunity to win more money. Roulette is interesting but is very hard to win at and there's very little skill involved since it's just luck.
As long as you have fun and STICK TO YOUR LIMIT then you'll have a fantastic night whatever happens
Have fun mate
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it

Just stick with your friends. If you can all go to the roulette table and have a laugh then you'll have fun even if you all lose horribly and quickly.
Alternatively, see if you can all get on one poker table and have a small tournament with each other. As long as you're all together you'll have an amazing night

Blackjack has the lowest house edge of any casino game (provided you play correctly) and your money will last longer. You might win a fiver, lose a fiver, win two fivers, lose a fiver, win one, lose two, and you can go back and forth like that for hours on £50.
#7
If you play any game(other than poker) long enough, the house(the casino) is guaranteed to have your money.

That being said, if you're doing good don't be greedy, quit while you're ahead. I like to go with about $60-$100 at a time and if I work my way up to double what I started with I'll pocket my starting cash and play with my "won money".

Unless you know what you're doing, don't play poker, this is my other advise, poker players are ruthless and they can smell a noob, and devour him.

just plan to lose that money all together, it is much more fun when you aren't desperate to win.

Yes, the house will win in the end. Google "Blackjack Strategy Chart". If you follow the strategy you'll minimise the house edge to around 0.5%, meaning for every £100 you bet, you'll lose 50p (on average, of course). It's also means on any given hand you have a 49.5% chance of winning, which is pretty good for a casino.
#10
ONLY play the pokies.
Gear:
-A Guitar

AND...

I say go big or go home. 50 on red.

Unless you're very competent at some of the other games.
#14
True, you would be considered a heo putting it all on a 50/50 bet :P

Personally i'd play poker, but I play all the time so am not too bad at it...

I've never really understood craps, as far as I can tell you throw the dice and hope for 7? Bit risky...

Blackjack is easy peasy to play, fruit machines are fun... Just play a bit of everything

Don't go over your limit either, that's a proper good piece of advice

I really don't understand why people want to go to lame places like casinos on their stagg nights. My neighbour got married a couple of years ago and the casino was just dull. They are full of addicts flittering their money away and it is difficult to see why people seem to find them so glamerous. My advice would be to just play a few games of blackjack and avoid the slot machines at all costs.

Could say the same about pubs / clubs; addicts flittering their money away, hard to see why they're glamorous what with all the fights what not... Then again, some do have fruit machines so you may be in luck

The casino is purely a post Stag night. The real deal is on Saturday when we are quad biking and being all drunk!

EDIT: I dont mean 'being all drunk' whilst quad biking because i still want to be alive when the weekends over!

Statistically Roulette will give you the highest chance of winning (.47 percent chance per round) if you place your money on either red or black. The payout won't be as good as if you break it down to be more precise, but the chances of wining are better. Anyway, a good strategy is to double your bet until you win - then you'll be ahead of when you started whenever you win (and you will win eventually). So long as you don't reach the table limits.

This is the strategy I meant. Bet always on the same number, and double the bet everytime you lose. Always the same number, always double. Don't let them catch on to you though.

My advice: Don't drink ****ing Jack and Coke or you'll come home empty handed and forget that it's Christmas when I was 9.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

You don't have to bet on the same number necessarily. It doesn't matter if they catch on, they have table limits to counteract the strategy.

I got thrown out of an internet roulette game once for doing it. And I say the same number because there's nothing more annoying than having the number you just bet on come up straight after.

In Vegas the drinks are free when you're at a table. I play blackjack and drink for free for hours. Even if I lose I win.
