It has always struck me as strange on how the patrons of the casinos are whether online or in person. I have been at many casinos in my life and the one thing that stuck out was how the patrons are with you whether you win, lose, or just break even. Besides going to the casino to play on the slots or at the tables, my greatest experience lies in what I am told by the patrons sitting next to me at the games.
I started going to a casino quite a few years ago and had never stepped foot in one until then, so the first game I visited a casino, I put my money in, sat down and looked at the machine for a while before the person next to me said, “you have to push the button to get it going.” I just looked at them at first trying to figure out what they were trying to do and as it turned out, they were trying to help me. I was shocked! I thought that most people that went to the casino were there for themselves and not for helping others, I was wrong.
They explained to me the way the machine worked and told me to start with the smallest bet and work my way up to max bet if I wanted to, not that I had to do the max bet at all. So I gave it a shot and sat and played there for hours winning and losing and winning again. The same person had noticed that I was still there and came back over by me and asked how it was going. This person told me that I should see what else the casino has to offer and not stay on the same machine as I will not keep winning but eventually I would end up losing it all. That was a very helpful person and that started my strategy of the casino games. Through the years, I have had people also come up to me and tell me that once in a while you need to take your bet and increase it to the next level for a few rounds and then bring it back down and go up and back down and they were right, I found that I could win more that way than when I was just at one level.
I have also had my share of watching patrons that were on a slot machine, and they would put almost their last dollar in to see if they could “hit” the big one and when they didn’t, got off the machine and someone else got on the game and within the first couple of spins they would start winning the bigger pots then the patron prior would get really upset. I asked one person why they got so upset about this and they told me that they weren’t upset about the person now winning, but they were upset because they went through their money in one machine and not more than that. I have seen patrons so upset that they left the casino crying and screaming that they would never return again.
A couple of years ago, I started playing online casinos and that gives you a different feeling about playing. I wasn’t there to watch people playing and figuring out how they are doing it but getting my own strategy down and found that I really liked it and not only that but that I could do it from the comfort of my own home. As I started on Facebook, I found that there are online casinos that I play at and I like the fact that they are willing to share free chips and advice all around. The patrons on the casino sites are also friendlier with comments and some again not so.
The patrons of the casinos, whether a an online casino or in person, really do make up the experiences that you have or that you can make.
