Welcome to yet another online casino article. Here we are going to tell you about some secrets that not every casino player knows. Still, these things are all well documented enough for us to know that they are 100% true. So, if you want to up your game and find out something that you didn’t know before, you should really read through our list.
#1 Casino Bonuses Are Not All About Big Numbers
First, you should know that casino bonuses are not all about big numbers. There are many casinos out there that are trying to convince you to join just by showing you great numbers. 400% extra, £2000 worth of bonuses, 300 free spins… These are all real-life examples from some of the casino welcome offers that we’ve seen. Yet, you should never be blinded by huge numbers that are designed to make you press the “Join Now” button on the site. Instead, let’s take a look at what’s behind these numbers…
400% bonus might have a very high wagering requirement, even up to 75x, which makes it hard for you to turn your bonus money into real money. Then again, £2000 worth of bonuses might consist of four deposits where the average bonus percentage is only 25%, meaning that you only get your hands on the 2000 pounds when depositing up to £8000 of your own money. Finally, free spins are often spread out so that even if you get 300 free spins, you will only have 10 of them to use per day. Doesn’t sound all that appealing now, does it?
Always read the bonus terms and conditions beforehand to find out whether the bonuses on offer are all hype or actually worth getting.
#2 Some Games Are Simply Poor Value
Most casino players do not know this, but online casino games’ RTPs (return to player) differ greatly. What this means is that not all games will give you wins as easily. The lower the RTP, the less likely it is to win from the game in the long run. Some of the highest RTPs that you can find from any online casino are for blackjack, roulette and baccarat. In addition to this, you should know that not all slots are the same either—some have high RTPs while others only give you a small chance to win.
Most people may have noticed that when playing blackjack, you often end up winning at least a few pounds. This is due to the fact that blackjack’s RTP is actually pretty close to 100%, which in turn means that you are almost as likely to win as you are to lose when you only play a single round. However, if you want to win many times, this might not be as easy because the house still has the edge. So, if you want to win hundreds and hundreds of pounds while playing with a stake of, say, 10 pounds, you might have a tough time. Winning just once with a higher stake, however, is quite possible. Just remember that you have to use the so-called optimal strategy to maximise your winning percentage. Bad strategy isn’t going to get you far.
#3 Never Play American Roulette
This secret is actually related to #2, but you should never play American Roulette. This is due to the fact that this game has 38 numbers while French Roulette only has 37. Why? Because while Europeans only have one 0, the Americans have added a 00 to the game to make the house edge bigger. The difference is not a big one, but it is still there.
#4 Casinos Are There to Make Money
This might sound obvious, but casinos are mostly in the business for themselves. While a great casino will try to make you feel good while playing, they would rather have you lose in the long run. You should especially remember this when you’re winning, because you are just being lucky. Being lucky is not a given—it is something you should cherish and appreciate by being thankful and withdrawing your winnings when you can instead of losing all of them back.
