Gambling near me restrooms

Casinos can be confusing places for the first-time visitor. They tend to be large, open rooms full of people who seem to know exactly what they're doing, while you wander around lost. Cameras hung from the ceiling watch your movements, and all the security guards, pit bosses, and dealers seem to be doing the same.

Worst of all, there are no signs, announcements, or tour guides to inform newcomers of the rules of behavior. So we'll do that right here. All players must be at least 21 years of age with no exceptions. If you're playing a slot with a child by your side, a security guard will quickly appear dispatched by casino surveillance and ask you to leave.

But you can walk through the casino with your youngster in tow; as long as you're on the move, you're OK. Your personal electronic items are also frowned upon in the casino. No electronics, including cell phones, can be used while seated at a casino game. The thick walls of most large casinos block cell phone reception anyhow so you have to walk outside to get a dial tone.

In the sports book of the casino, pagers and cell phones cannot be used at all. Casinos are traditionally camera-shy, but no longer as stringent about no-photography rules that for years protected players; management feared they would get up and leave if a camera was pointed their way.

Gambling is now more accepted as a mainstream pastime, and it's hard to separate the gaming floor from the public right-of-way in many a casino. When in doubt, ask a security guard. Smokers, on the other hand, find casinos a welcome relief.

Those who are annoyed by cigarette or cigar smoke will need to find a no-smoking table or slots area. The casinos' smoke permeates clothing quickly.

The security of your person and pocketbook shouldn't be forgotten in the bustle of the casino. Although the casino tries to protect its patrons with omnipresent security cameras and guards, the crowds and distractions overwhelm their vigilance.

You probably won't be mugged inside a casino, but theft or short-changing can easily happen. Keep your purse in your lap. Casino chips should not be left on the table under the dealer's protection while you take a quick bathroom break. Recount any chips and cash that casino personnel hand over to you immediately -- once you leave the table or cage, you cannot get a mistake corrected. Finally, do not hesitate to request that a security guard escort you to the casino parking lot late at night, especially in downtown Las Vegas.

Almost all casinos offer craps, blackjack, slots, video poker, and roulette. The major casinos will, in addition, have live poker, sports betting, baccarat, keno, and an ever-growing list of table games.

Stick to video poker, slots, and roulette if you're nervous about the arcane rules and want a relaxing visit. Table games, especially blackjack and craps, offer the novice the greatest challenges. However, these games remain two of the most popular in Las Vegas. Free daily lessons at most Strip casinos will warm the tables. The beginner's course will let you belly up to the tables with confidence. Don't hesitate to ask any question you like at the table. If a dealer doesn't answer, or is rude, walk away to another table -- or another casino.

At some of the smaller and less crowded gambling houses, dealers will take time to orient players to new games. If you're a newcomer to the tables, avoid the larger houses, especially at peak hours, because the personnel may be too busy to help you.

Before you sit down at a table, look at the little placard that announces the betting minimum and maximum. Most casinos offer a range of betting minimums, but the low minimum tables tend to be packed. Minimums in casinos on the Strip are generally higher than those of downtown casinos. Consider also the timing of your casino visit.

Las Vegas wakes up around lunchtime, then peaks between 11 PM and midnight. If you arrive at a busy hour, tables may be scarce at the minimums you desire. Weekends are also the busiest time of the week for Vegas as half of California drives in for a quick roll.

Tipping is a key element of casino etiquette. Dealers are paid minimum wage at the casinos, and they expect to be tipped when you are winning. It's neither mandatory nor necessary, however, it's only up to your own discretion.

Slipping a dealer or change person a chip is like any other tip: a small gratuity for services rendered. This small generosity usually relaxes the dealer, and thus the game, considerably. At most casinos, dealers pool their tips and then split them evenly. So be aware that no matter how much you toke a good dealer, he or she will receive only a percentage.

Taxes, fees not included for deals content. Site Index. Added by sashacollecutt. World Guides. I'm almost afraid of what I'm going to hear in response to this, but do you guys worry about leaving sizable amounts of money on the rail in fear that the dealers restroos be focused on the game and wouldn't notice if a thief pocketed some of your money?

You see girls dancing on the poles. If you arrive at a busy hour, tables may be scarce at the minimums you desire. Recount any chips and cash that casino personnel hand over to you immediately -- once you leave the table or cage, you cannot get a mistake corrected.
