5 REASONS CASINO GAMES ARE SO ENTERTAINING

Gambling at your local casino or online is a great form of entertainment.

Different players enjoy different games and have different reasons they find gambling so entertaining, but few can argue the entertainment value of a trip to the casino.

Here’s a list of five reasons casino games are so entertaining. See if any come to mind that I haven’t included as you read through the list.

1 – Variety

Many players have a game they like the best.

Some of them never play anything else, but some will occasionally play a different game.

Other players are willing to jump from game to game, never seeming to spend more than an hour anywhere.

None of these ways to play is right or wrong, but the great thing is the casino has so many game options that all of the players listed above can have a great time.

2 – You Can Win

Do you think people would still gamble if they never won?

I think most people would eventually quit if they never had a winning session, but I’m not convinced everyone would quit.

Of course if you couldn’t win every once in a while I’m not sure it could be called gambling any more.

Casino games offer different combinations of risk and reward. What you have to pay for the chance of a reward varies based on many factors, including the chance of a high reward.

If you play progressive slot machines you have a chance to win a big jackpot, often over a million dollars. Your chances aren’t very big, but people do win progressive jackpots. I’ve seen their pictures, but sadly I’ve never won one.

Even if the cost per spin while playing a progressive slot machine is only a dollar or two, the cost of trying to hit a big win is high. The average slot machine has over a 7% edge. When you consider how many hundred spins per hour you can take you can lose a lot in a short time.

On the other end are games like blackjack. It offers a low house edge but the top payout for any single hand is only a couple times the amount of your original bet.

Most casino games fall in between these two extremes, but the fact is you have the chance to win any hand or spin and you have the chance to have a winning session every time you play.

3 – Strategy

You can find casino games that offer the chance to change the outcome based on how you play. Video poker and blackjack games all require players to use the proper strategy if they want to have the best chance to win.

You can easily reduce the house edge by 200 – 300% when you use the best strategy. The games will still favor the casino but if the edge is 1% when you use the proper strategy and 3% or higher when you don’t you’ll win more often when you learn the best strategy.

If you visit the poker room and try your luck at Texas holdem, 7 Card Stud, or Omaha you’ll have an opportunity to use strategy all the time. If you’re able to practice and improve your strategy enough you can even win in the long run at the poker table. This is the ultimate form of entertainment.

You even use a small amount of strategy when you choose which casino game to play. Learn which games offer the best odds so you have the best chance to win.

4 – No Strategy

I know it’s a little funny to follow a section about how you can use strategy to change the outcome on some casino games, but not everyone wants to do a lot of thinking while playing casino games.

If you just want to forget everything for a while and not make anything beyond the most basic decision, the casino has plenty to offer.

Slot machines are the first games that come to mind when I think of games that don’t require any strategy. Just put your money in and hit the max bet button and you’re done.

You can sit down at the baccarat table and just bet on the banker or play roulette with a bet on black. Keno is one of the easiest games to play. Just check the auto pick box and how many numbers you want to play.

Finding games that don’t involve much thought is easy. The casinos prefer you play games without thinking about anything. They know the more you play and the less you think the more money they stand to make over time.

5 – The Outcome Is By Chance

You can control many aspects of the casino gambling process, but in the end the outcome is based on chance. You can pick the games with the lowest house edge and you can play the best strategy possible, but you still usually have a 50 / 50 chance of winning at best.

Even if you could find a wager that you won 60% of the time, the outcome for any single decision is a gamble. Even with a 60% chance of winning a bet you’ll lose 4 out of every 10 times you make the wager.

This is one of the main reasons casino games are so entertaining.

Even if the house has a 60% edge you’ll still win 4 out of every 10 times you play on average, so the games of chance can work for or against you.

Conclusion

Like many people, I’ve replaced some of my normal entertainment with casino games. Instead of going out to eat a few extra nights I play a few of my favorite casino games. While I always leave the restaurant with less money than when I went in with, sometimes I leave the casino with a win.

I get a nice entertainment value win or lose, but you really can’t beat a fun night that gives you a chance to win some money at the same time.
