If you like to have a cocktail every once in a while, keep your cash at home if you are going to do your drinking in a casino. I’m serious. Empty your purse, your billfold, and leave all money, plastic credit and chequebooks back at the hotel. Only take whatever cash you expect to use on drinks, tips and whatever pocket change you expect to lose and leave the rest behind.

Cynical? Absolutely not. Just realistic. You could experience a win following a drunken evening out with your acquaintances and be lucky enough to hit a 25 minute roll at a smokin craps game. Keep that adventure seeing that it is as short-lived as it gets if you continually drink and bet. The pair just don’t go well together.

Keeping your money out of the casino is a little excessive, but precautionary actions for drastic actions is a requirement. If you play to win, then don’t drink and play. If you like to burn your $$$$ without a concern, then consume all the free beer you can handle, but don’t pack plastic credit and checks to throw into the mix of going after losses after your befuddled self squanders all the cash!

Permit me to carry this one step further. Don’t consume alcohol and then head on the net to gamble in your favorite online casino either. I enjoy a beer from the coziness of my condominium, however seeing that I am linked up through Neteller, Firepay and have credit cards near by, I can not drink alcohol and bet.

How come? Despite the fact that I don’t consume alcohol a lot, when I consume alcohol, it’s clearly sufficient to befuddle my judgment. I wager, so I do not drink when gambling. If you are more of a drinker, do not gamble when you do. When mixed, both create a dangerous, and crazy, drink.
