Don’t Have an Alcoholic Beverage … Play!

[ English ]

If you enjoy having a a beer ever so often, leave your money at home if you set out to do your drinking in a casino. I am serious. Clean out your handbag, your wallet, and leave all money, plastic credit and chequebooks out of the casino. Pack only the money you intend to use on drinks, tips and whatever pocket change you anticipate to burn and keep the rest behind.

Cynical? Not by any means. Just realistic. You could experience a profit following a drunken night out with your acquaintances and be lucky enough to hook a 25 minute roll at a hot craps table. Keep that story because it’s as short-lived as it gets if you always consume alcohol and bet. These activities simply do not go well together.

Leaving your moolah back at the hotel is a tiny bit drastic, but precautionary actions for drastic actions is essential. If you play to profit, then don’t drink and gamble. If you like to be wasteful with your $$$$ nary a concern, then drink all the gratuitous beer your stomach can handle, but don’t take plastic credit and chequebooks to toss into the mix of chasing losses after your hooched up head squanders all the cash!

Let me to take this a single step more. Don’t consume alcohol and then jump on to the internet to bet in your best-liked internet casino either. I love to cocktail from the comfort of my house, but seeing that I’m hooked up through Neteller, Firepay and have charge cards in close proximity, I can’t drink and gamble.

Why? Even though I don’t consume alcohol to excess, when I drink, it is clearly adequate to blur my judgment. I bet, so I don’t drink when betting. If you are more of a drinker, don’t bet at the same time. Both make for a ferocious, and expensive, drink.
