Technology is developing at a scary rate, and these days, almost anything and everything can be done without ever having to leave your home. This has made our generation quite anti-social, as you no longer have to go out and deal with people to get the job done. Because of this, some behaviours seem to have been completely forgotten. This is especially the case with casino players who have become accustomed to playing online versions of the game and might have forgotten the basic rules of casino etiquette.  Here we refresh your memory.

Casinos on Female First

Turn off your mobile

Yes, no one can survive in today's modern age without a mobile phone, but talking on your mobile while sitting at a casino table is not only distracting but just plain rude. In most cases, the dealer will probably ask you to turn off your phone or step away from the table while you make your call.

No selfies

In many top casinos around the world, it is not advised to taking photos of the gaming floor. Some casinos may involve security when someone is caught taking pictures, while others will simply ask you to put your camera away. In today's age of selfies, it is best to leave the selfie stick at home for a night at the casino.

Dress Appropriately

One of the biggest drawcards for online casinos is the ability to play your favourite game without leaving your home, or talking to people, or even getting dressed. But this is not always the case in many big Las Vegas casinos, which may adhere to a strict dress code, while others are more informal. Depending on what casino you are visiting, a shirt and smart trousers for men and women are usually sufficient if you are unsure. Just try to avoid sneakers, tracksuits or hoodies as wearing these items will usually send you packing.

Limit the booze

While it is always fun to have a drink or two while playing at casinos, it is always important to make sure you do not over-indulge. Do not let the alcohol get the better of you during gameplay as you could end up making mistakes and betting more than you can afford to lose.

Respect the dealer

When sitting at any casino table, the dealer is in charge, no matter who you think you are or how much you plan to spend. When the dealer says 'no more bets', he means it. It is a good idea to just listen to the dealer as they direct the passage of play so that everyone can have a fair and enjoyable experience.

Keep your emotions in check

Casino games should be fun, friendly and respectful. Yes, there is a lot of money at stake, but if you do not know how to separate your emotions from the game, you probably shouldn’t be playing in the first place. Do not fly into a rage when things do not go your way as you will not only be alienating your fellow players, but you will antagonise the casino staff and likely get asked to leave.

Learn to tip

Another factor online players never have to consider is tipping. Unless you are in a country where dealers are not allowed to be tipped, it is expected that you leave a small gratuity for the dealer whenever you leave a table. This amount does not have to be big, and you shouldn't feel pressurised to donate half of your wins to the dealer. A simple $5 or $10 is usually sufficient.
