Few things can compare to the excitement of gambling at a casino but, before you trade all your money in for chips, you should know that a certain etiquette is expected from customers. Here are five things you should never do once you step through the doors of a casino.

Don’t Abandon Your Kids

Kids really have no place in a casino and most casinos operate a strict 21 and over policy. While you’re not going to get arrested for simply walking across the floor with your kids, you should expect to be asked to leave if you sit down to play a game. If you must bring your kids with you, make your visit brief and keep them close at all times.

Don’t Use Your Smartphone

You don’t have to surrender your phone at the door but expect a rude awakening if you decide to surf Facebook at the poker table. Smartphones are heavily frowned upon in most casinos, so you’re better off keeping yours in your pocket.

Don’t Forget to Tip

You won’t necessarily be asked to leave if you don’t tip but it’s rude not to. Dealers work for minimum wage in most casinos and they depend on the generosity of their patrons to make a living. The same goes for servers. Besides, you’re more likely to get a friendly service if you are generous with your winnings.

Don’t Learn at the Table

If you’re going to sit down at a poker table, you should have a basic understanding of the game. There are plenty of resources from which you can learn ahead of time so that you don’t have to keep other players waiting for you while you learn the game from scratch.

Don’t Give Advice

There are always those people at a casino who feel like they have to advise others on matters of strategy. Don’t be one of them! Let people play however they want to play.   A night out at the casino can be great fun but, if you don’t feel like adhering to all these rules, you can simply visit the Hippodrome online casino and get a welcome gift worth up to CA$1000.
