Las Vegas Code of Silence Broken:  Secrets Revealed on How to Win

Question-and-answer site asked savvy casino players the secrets to winning in Sin City and it seems the Las Vegas code of silence has finally been broken.  These are the secrets to winning in the Vegas casinos.

The One Casino Game That Does Not Have a House Edge:

Don Dawson a Las Vegas resident, suggested live poker. “All other games favour the house. It’s the only game where the casino does not take money directly from the player,” he said. “It is strictly up to you and your skill on how much you win or lose.”

Also, while roulette has the worst odds of any casino game, you can likely find better odds at smaller casinos that are unable to retain the best dealers. 

You Must Play “Max Bet” on Slots to Win Big
“If you play slots, there’s no point playing the lowest bet,” said Tseng. “Max bet = max win.” The maximum bet is usually two or three times the advertised price; for example, the maximum bet on a 25 cent machine will usually be 50 or 75 cents.

Don’t Drink and Play

Free drinks sound great but clearly a buzzed gambler gives the house a clear edge.

“Unless you’re some kind of alcoholic prodigy, your alcohol intake is going to impair your judgement and perceptions,” said Jon Mixon, who grew up in Nevada. “If you want to win, you’ll need to be a teetotaller.”

Stop While You Are Ahead
“You are only going to win once or twice during your entire stay,” said Mixon. “When you do, stand up and leave. If you don’t, you’ll end up losing it all back – with interest.”
