At a land based casino you are going to find it is allot more than just playing cards. You can expect to experience sounds, excitement, entertainment and comps.
Not unlike playing online you first need to find a casino you are happy with and that you interact with the dealers and fellow players to help make it more of a social outing. We have played at some casinos that had dealers with personalities of a post. This does not make for fun outing. We also like to try and find a casino that has excellent fellow players as well. You will find that playing a table game allot of the same people show up around the same time each week or day. Who know you may make a great new friend.
Don’t be scared off by table limits. Sometimes if you see a opening at a table with a higher limit you may want to ask the dealer nicely if it you’d be possible to play at a lower limit. Most of the times they will let you play if it’s not crazy busy.
Before you sit at the table you should make sure and sign up at the promotion desk or ask a dealers if they have a players reward club. We don’t know of a casino out there that doesn’t have some sort of reward system in place to help keep you coming back. Most should have at least a players card. When you take a seat before you place your first bet you should make sure the pit boss has your players card so they can track your level of play. You would be surprised how fast the comps can add up. A great tip is to look around at the restaurants so when they are willing to give you a food comp you can make a suggestion for one of the nicer places instead of the buffet.
The table play is pretty much the same. Online you are playing at a table between yourself and the dealer. Most of the time at a casino you won’t be the only player sitting at the table but the game still plays the same of between you and dealers. The other players cards have no effect on your hand. That is one of the things that makes thins game so much fun to play at a casino is that you can offer support to the table and in turn the table offers the support back to you.
Those are really the only differences that you may encounter play at a land based casino as apposed to a online casino. Whatever way you wish to play remember the game should be fun.
