Top 5 Secrets That Casinos Don’t Want You To Know

Top 5 Secrets That Casinos Don’t Want You To Know

The house, as they say, always wins. Be that as it may, casinos will go above and beyond to make sure that that stays the case. They want to be always one or more steps ahead of the player.

In fact, here are five casino secrets that they don’t want you to know. If you did, you would probably clean them out. They don’t want that, do they?

Secret #1. Some Games are Downright Rip-Offs

We know that every game at the casino has some house edge. That means that they are designed to tip the scale in favour of the house. However, some casino games have a way too big house edge your, so much so that the house itself knows that they just rip-offs.

Casinos don’t want you to know about these games. That’s because they are their cash cows. According to casinos, most table games besides the traditional ones like craps, roulette, baccarat, and blackjack are just rip-offs.

As per a few insiders, you should stay away from Caribbean Stud, Let it Ride and Three-Card Poker. These usually have a house edge in the region of 9% or higher. Some games also have rules that are designed to rip the players off. Case in point is Double Exposure Blackjack, which has very stringent rules on how the player can double down.

Secret #2. It’s Crucial to Consider the RTP

One similar but the lighter tone, the house edge is very crucial when it comes to casino games. After all, not all the games available at a casino are created the same. Most players think that all casino games are rigged.

While they all have a small house edge, it’s important to choose the game based on the RTP (Return to Player). The higher the RTP, the lower the house edge, and the higher your chances of winning.

As a rule of thumb, the easier the casino game, the more difficult it’s to beat. The harder the game, the higher your chances of winning. That’s a secret that the house doesn’t want you to know.

The bottom line is that not all casino games are good. To weed out the bad to reach them better, consider the house edge or RTP.

Secret #3. Every Aspect of the Casino is Designed to Keep you Playing

That’s right. From the lighting (which is a positioned to mimic a living room environment) to the passageways (which are obstructive), everything is designed to make sure that you stay in the casino as long as possible. 

That’s not all. Think about the booze, as well as the snacks and beverages. They are there to keep you locked. There are also some psychological aspects. Casinos use soothing yet uplifting music that plays smoothly in the background. Have you ever noticed that most land-based casinos don’t have windows, natural lighting or clocks?

Secret #4. You are Always Under the Watchful Eyes of the Security

The entire casino floor is under constant surveillance. Some cameras can zoom to your very hands. While they are primarily designed to keep thieves and cheaters at bay, the surveillance system will help security keep an eye on big winners and other suspicious activities.

According to former casino security, the only place that you are truly off the radar is your hotel room and the restrooms. Anywhere else you can bet there’s a camera on every little move you make. Just know that if you make a big stake, the casino “eyes” are definitely on you!

Secret #5. Security can Tell Cheats in a Jiffy

While they don’t want everyone to know, casino security can easily tell players who are trying to cheat. The telltale signs of cheaters, according to casino insiders, are two people who sit very close together, extreme money management, rubber-necking, and much more.
