  1. Tips on Responsible Gaming

Learn how the games are played. Don’t make large bets before you have understood how a game is played, the odds of winning and the house advantage. Please ask our casino team members about how games are played and how wagering is done. You may also check our House Edge page and know more about what the odds are for each game on this page:

Lead a balanced lifestyle. Enjoy different kinds of leisure activities aside from gaming. Find other kinds of relaxing or exciting forms of entertainment to round out your lifestyle. Set a time and money limit. Only bet money that you can afford to lose. Never chase after losses. Know what time you should stand up and walk away from playing. Set an alarm to remind you. Keep track of how much you’ve won or lost. Keep a record of your gaming activity. Write down the date, game and amount won or lost. That way you can see how you are doing as a player. A good tool that will allow you to calculate your spending based on your average bet, speed of play and length of play is this calculator: Gaming and Alcohol is not a good combination. Playing at the casino should be done with a clear and calm mind. A bit too much alcohol may impair your judgement and lead you to make risky bets.
