How to behave at the casino. Basic rules of etiquette at the game tables.
Before you enter the gambling house, you should do everything not to become that unpleasant player who does not know the basic rules of behavior at the gambling tables and leaves an unpleasant impression on the administration and other gamblers. It should be remembered and taken into account that each casino has a set of unspoken rules of behavior that make the game process more pleasant and comfortable.
The basic rules of behavior at the gaming table are the following:
The generally accepted rules of etiquette and good taste. It is important to behave politely and respectfully towards the institution and other players. In respectable gambling clubs there are strict rules which are applied in respect for all players without exception.
Drinks and snacks are forbidden at the roulette table, even in those places where they practice ordering drinks at the gaming tables. Spilled liquids and stains can spoil the atmosphere of the game.
It is forbidden to put big things on the table. This not only interferes with other players and the dealer, but also contradicts the safety rules of the gambling house.
Most often, casinos prohibit the use of all kinds of mobile gadgets, but modern trends make the administration be more loyal to mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.).
Today, the dress code is not the same as it used to be many years ago, but still it is worth remembering that the clothes should correspond to the event. It is customary to go to the casino wearing suit and tie, and ladies should wear an evening dress.
Clients should always be at the table only in those places which are reserved for players. You mustn`t come from the side of the dealer, because is not just a bad taste, but also the reason to get a strict reprimand from the security guard.
Mandatory requirements for the gameplay
When you enter the casino, you should clarify whether the gaming chips are accepted at roulette or should they be changed to tokens. Otherwise, an unpleasant trouble may occur.
Attention is the foundation of good manners. Place bets when you are invited and do not slip the game tokens after closing the reception of bets. In order to understand well what is happening at the table, you should monitor the actions of the dealer.
It is forbidden to touch the chips when the dealer is putting the marker in the winning number.
Be careful, do not throw chips on the cloth. They should be moved so as not to interfere with other players.
Be careful! Some types of bets are usually made with the help of a dealer. They are called «call bets. The dealer may not have time to accept all bets when the flow of players is large. In this case, it is worth showing loyalty and patience, or changing the table to a less busy one.
It is important to notify the dealer in advance of your intentions to manipulate tokens or chips.
It’s better not to speak about your personal betting preferences and your favorite betting systems. Some casinos take it rather negatively.
Interaction with other players and casino staff.
Today, tips are not accepted in every gambling house, so it’s worth asking the administrator whether it is necessary to thank the dealer with money.
Advices are not welcome at the casino at all, even when players ask for them. Indeed, the adviser can be accused of a bad recommendation in case of failure. Moreover, you should not pester other players with tips.
If you intend to take the place of a player who moves away from the table, ask if he will return.
There are no prohibitions on communicating with the dealer, but he is most often busy and will not be able to support small talk at the roulette. You should not be offended if you do not receive an answer to your questions.
Remember, courtesy and dignified behavior create a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere to be and play in.
