  Tables Games—How Do I Pick the Best Table?

      You know you want to do a little gambling at your local casino, and you've decided which game you want to play. Now, the only remaining question is what table to choose...

  Pai Gow 101

      Pai Gow Poker is one of the best kept secrets in the casino. The odds of the player winning any given hand are just about 50-50, however because it has a foreign-sounding name and is a favorite of Asian gamblers, most people shy away from it -- which is a shame because it is actually quite fun to play.

  What is a Random Number Generator and Why Should I Care?

      It seems simple. You pull the arm on a slot machine and it starts to spin. Eventually, it runs out of gas and slows to a stop. If it lands on the right combination of symbols, you're a big winner!!! The problem is that's not how slot machines work.

  Asking For Comps

     You’ve seen the movies that show show table game high-rollers getting free penthouse suites as a reward for their "run of luck." Although this might be out of reach for many, the truth is, every gambler (yes, even you $2 ante types) is rated by the casino. The longer you play and the higher your average bet, the more "comp points" you earn. The real question is,  “How do I redeem my earned comps”?

  How Should I Pick A Slot Machine to Play?

     Slot machines come in all shapes and sizes, with all sorts of bells and whistles, making the decision of what machine to play a challenging one for the gambling neophyte. Fear not! Here's what you need to look for to make the most of your casino experience.

  Play and Stay At A Pacific Northwest Casino

      It’s no secret that the Pacific Northwest is one of the best places to escape from it all. With the beach, the mountains, forests, and deserts all accessible, you can choose the destination just right for you.
      Resort casinos have seen increasing popularity in recent years and it’s clear why these resorts are becoming destinations in their own right. They offer luxurious accommodations and services, lively action on the gaming floor, and gourmet meals served with panache. Add to that, other interesting attractions around town and show-stopping live entertainment on site, and you quickly understand why Pacific Northwest resort casinos may be the best choice for your next getaway.

  Don't Forget to Tip

     Whether or not you win or lose at the casino, it is customary to tip your dealer, the same way you would leave a small gratuity for your server at your local greasy spoon even if you sent the blue plate special back to the kitchen. Here’s the protocol for doing so.

  Baccarat On A Budget

     Baccarat is not a difficult game to play at all, though it often intimidates newcomers because of the boisterous nature of the tables and high stakes usually at risk. However, you don't need to be a billionaire to take part.

  Is Spanish 21 Like Blackjack?

     Although Spanish 21 has many of the same rules as basic blackjack, there are several quirks to the game that make it a much more interactive game.

  Progressive Slots – To Play or Not to Play

     If you've been to a casino, then you've seen the Progressive Slots. They are the machines with a big tote board glowing overhead, slowly but surely inching that "top prize" closer and closer to infinity with each and every passing moment. It's almost impossible to avoid the lure of the siren song…

  Roulette Basics

    Roulette is one of the oldest casino games dating back to the 1600’s. The Roulette wheel has 37 or 38 spaces. In most American casinos, the wheel has spots for numbers 1-36 plus 0 and 00. Most European wheels have numbers 1-36 plus 0. The single 0 offers better odds for the bettor.

  The Casino Poker Tables Look Scary!

     When you enter a casino poker room, it can be more than a bit daunting. There are giant screens with lists of tables and unusual looking codes, and more often than not, spread out before you are full tables with games that are well under way.

  Step Up To The Craps Table

     The table is surrounded by excited gamblers, the chips are constantly being thrown around back and forth—Yikes! Although it may look fairly complicated to a novice, craps is actually an easy game to play.

  What Are Paylines All About?

     Not all slot machines are created equal. Each one, in addition to having different symbols, perhaps even new computerized layouts complete with bonus rounds, also may reward the customer with different payouts, depending on where those spinning wheels ultimately end up.

  Slot Machines 101

     The first land based casino experience for many people is walking up to a slot machine and depositing a few coins. Next, a pull of a handle or push of a button and the reels are spinning.

  A Blackjack Primer

     When first learning about blackjack play, it is important to stick to basic strategy. More seasoned blackjack players may take some risks and try out strategies that work for them, but beginners will want to stick with the strategy that has proven to offer the best payout.
