Back when I played in a "real life" casino

Recommended Posts

Hey dear Primedicers.

Since I want to make that Giveaway workin for me, I want to share a little exciting story about my (I guess) first casino experience back in 2009 or 2010.

I was a trainee and in the second or third year of it. (3.5 years until exams). And my friends always liked to do.. random stuff. Often we ended up in a Shisha-Bar or just in a disco. So one day they thought it would be more exciting to hit a casino before the club. We already drunk a little and.. things happen. Anyway.

So we entered that casino. I expected staff giving cards of throw the ball in roulette. What a bittersweet disappointment. Everything was driven by computers. Funniest was the Blackjack, where they show sexy women that hands you out your cards :D. (We were drunk and young - rest is up to your imagination how much we loved that little game, no sexy behavior from our side involved!).

Somewhen my friends confessed they have been more often there and that they had most success with Roulette. Almost magically we ended up there.

So.. I was busy with busting my money there until 5 bucks were left. My friend said "just all in.. hit random with closed eyes". (Have to add that it was all the money I had left for party that month). Dunno what I chose, but it made that 5 bucks.. not sure.. I guess 20 bucks what back then was a lot of money for me and a huge success :D

Did you have similar experiences with real life casinos? Wanna hear your story :D

From that experience.. I can say I was way more careful what I did with my bets. Losing fiat feels worse in my eyes. Don't know why. Maybe because its the money I use for groceries and what not.

But I guess a bigger casino with real staff might be much more tempting. completely different atmosphere.

The casino I've been to was very.. smokey :D.. hahahaha. Urg.

  • I tried casino but its not work for me , I lose alots of money... I won twice then... sad to say  its take all  i got:) 

i think its easier to actually lose more money online...
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
when you dont have the physical money in front of you, it can get difficult to comprehend when actually betting a lot more than one should... especially when in crypto, it gets even more hard cause a conversion must be done in the head on  the spot...

Nop, not for me yet, unfortunately.... Did not had the time yet to go into some Real Life Casino situation just to have those feelings of greediness into everyone's eyes. But who knows if someday i will be able to join some. I still want to give it a try and see if im able to get some time to allow myself such event. Let's see. Only time will tell.

Anyways i would love to play roullete and slot games. Because Roullete is so cool seeing everyone with their chips meanwhile the ball spinning around and seeing everyone anxious to become some millionaire. And about Slot Games, oh good seeing the money just flowing right below the pipes into your poket hands? :DDD

I haven't played at casino in my real life. Actually it makes a man more crazy. I have seen many people who gamble in real life. Some of them lost all. And finally they engaged in crime for getting money. I don't want to make gambling my life. If I started going casino I can't stop myself. I learn myself that how greedy I'm by online gambling casino.

I've had all sorts of experiences at real life casinos. I still go often with my friends :) We mostly go after work, and have a few drinks and gamble a bit. I would say mostly for recreational purposes and to socialise after work hours. So for me, i still prefer real life casinos because of the social aspect, whereas online, you are usually alone at your computer.

Are you still going for such Casinos? Which ones do you prefer most of the time? As in terms of where do you find more appealing Casinos to go to?

Have you ever been in Las Vegas Casinos? You might sound a more reasonable guy to be at such Casinos from what you are saying :P

I haven't been to Las vegas, but my local casino is pretty similar I assume (from movies and pics of Las Vegas). It is massive, with thousands of machines to play and about 50 or 60 tables with dealers. So when I say "local", it is close to where I stay, but still a massive casino.

Well provide some screenshots if you can or just the Casinos own page, location for me to get know of it anyway ;D

I see your local meaning, that's cool for you so you can just grab some local friends and play with them as a party? xD

Haha my first experiences in casinos were pretty underwhelming as well I reckon that the next generations gonna have a massive swing on the profits of real casinos 😛

What do you mean with profits of real casinos? Changes like lower profits / higher? I did not understood your reply sorry O.o

I've never been to real ones before and I would love to try!

Although I'm not sure if they'll allow people with low balance to enter though. But once I walked by and saw many old men inside, maybe it's old men's main past time? xD

Anyway, that's why I love online gambling. It helps with my insecurities from others since noone gets to judge how I look, how much I bet, etc.

It is not an online casino, and you're probably not in the same country as me lol. Also, it is definitely not as a party, because the music is not very loud, and the point is not to get drunk, otherwise you will surely lose all your money xD

Some real life Casinos allow you to join without any kind of restrictions. Others force you to (yes) have some initial balance, specific life situation or age.

I do think the same way as you, online gambling is much more safer in such aspects of life ;)

I was not saying it was an online Casino ;) And by party i mean grabbing and going out with a couple of friends and enjoy your time with them having fun.

So one day they thought it would be more exciting to hit a casino before the club. We already drunk a little and.. things happen. Anyway.

So we entered that casino. I expected staff giving cards of throw the ball in roulette. What a bittersweet disappointment. Everything was driven by computers. Funniest was the Blackjack, where they show sexy women that hands you out your cards :D. (We were drunk and young - rest is up to your imagination how much we loved that little game, no sexy behavior from our side involved!).

Somewhen my friends confessed they have been more often there and that they had most success with Roulette. Almost magically we ended up there.

So.. I was busy with busting my money there until 5 bucks were left. My friend said "just all in.. hit random with closed eyes". (Have to add that it was all the money I had left for party that month). Dunno what I chose, but it made that 5 bucks.. not sure.. I guess 20 bucks what back then was a lot of money for me and a huge success :D

Did you have similar experiences with real life casinos? Wanna hear your story :D

Yes I had an experience with a Bingo game casino, I was just handing over the apartment key to my playing mom, and my intention was to just sit at the table, have a coke, eat a portion of roasted chicken.

But my mother and brothers insisted that I play a bingo card, and there I went to play! Amazingly, I won the game. The amount was R $ 800.00 (reais) Brazilian currency.

I thought about leaving, my mind was already focused on a disco, but my brother said, 'stay a while longer'. So I stayed and played one more and won! My mom laughed and said, play one more and I played and won again! It was the third straight in a row that I was winning! I had already earned $ 2000 reais, it was great money!

I was already smiling a lot, and I said, guys I'm going on this, I have an appointment! Then I heard the advertiser saying "Now is the special round, value of the prize round 3000 reais!"

Wow, I thought to myself, I'm going to have a cigarette, order some coke, and I'll throw this just to see what it looks like, and winning or losing I'm leaving! And there I went, right now it looked like the eyes of the whole casino were keeping an eye on me, and this time instead of being with my family at a gambling table, I sat at a computer machine and stood there quietly at the last machine. hiding, smoking a cigarette and sipping a coke!

Suddenly I screamed out loud! "Bingo!!!!" Ahahaha, it was me winning and capturing all the money from the special round! So I was now winning 4 rounds in a row, and the money I had already captured was 5000 reais! By that time I was already feeling rich and thinking of my girl waiting for me at the disco! I quickly got up from the machine and when I was about to leave, looked at another machine, sat there to be hidden. And I played one more and won! So people were already shouting something like "he has some trick to win, and now people were approaching where I was to see if they could get my luck!" But they couldn't, I won again, got up and thought to myself, I'm going, I need to go now I have $ 7000 reais!

And now I was like a rich man in the night, so I gave my mom and brothers $ 2000 to pay for my soda and my initial game card. They stayed there and I floated floating dancing in the disco with my chosen one.

It was an amazing winning sequence experience! I returned again and again to play with my family, but this was the only experience of massive victories in a single day! I have been in the news for a long time at home.

My very first experience in a "real life" casino was back in about 1996 or 1997.  That first trip, I fell in love with the game Three Card Poker and have a big fan ever since.  Within the first 2 hours of playing it and making $5-10 bets, I was up almost $2000.  For any of you that know this game, you know there is a pair plus bonus game for just the 3 cards in your hand.  A 3 card royal flush pays 50-1, 2 card straight flush 40-1, and 3 of a kind 30-1.  Within the first 2 hours I hit a 3 card royal, 2 3 card straight flushes and 1 three of a kind.  It is by far the best run of cards I have ever had then or since...

I have never been to a real casino because my country does not legalize gambling, there is no casino in my country, I am from Indonesia. In Indonesia there used to be a casino, but now it is closed because the Indonesian government does not legalize gambling. if you want to go to the casino, then I have to go to Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, because the country has casino real estate. and from my country, I'm also not too far away to get there, my friends often take me to casinos in Singapore. maybe someday I will go there to feel the sensation of playing gambling in a real casino and I will tell it here

I was invited by teammate in that bpo i used to work at. I believe I've hit a hail mary bet once or twice and the feeling when it hit. Incomparable to wins even if its less in terms of value, prayers, chants, crossed fingers all those were in that bet.

cool story bro.  i think all of us do have an unforgettable gambling stories and guess what ? im not also exempted to that.  i started gambling on a casino back on the days that im still in highschool , we cut classes and because its boring in school that time and we end up in a small time casino   . 

it was not strict and we are not restricted to enter because we change our uniforms to tshirts. i remember i bet all my allowance for one week and left empty handed. im too scared to go home because in my mind what if my parents find out ?

I don't like to gamble in real life because it is quite noisy and I feel that when playing the psychology of my play is not good when facing my opponent.

I was playing roulette with my buddy once and we developed vastly different table tactics than one another. He played only outside 2-1 bets and i played a mix of inside bets and outside bets depending on what i call the "dealers routine". And i always insure my bets with a bet on 0. But anyway. His night was going broke fast and mine was maintaining a steady up and down like i tend to experience. He placed his last bet with 300 on the 1st and 2nd row and looked at me like "well lets get the dice outta here" and i laughed. 3rd row later hes bitching and swearing never to come back so i tossed him four quarters and said "im still playing bro chill the dice out and just enjoy the table" That dude looked at me like he had never experienced such a friendly thing or more inspiring act in his entire like. Put two quarters on the 1st and 2nd row and looked at me like "dice it might as well" and i laughed. 3rd row later he grabbed his smokes and got ready to leave. So i said "hold up hold up hold up" Placed a quarter on my favorite numbers 2, 9, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36 and 0 and said "hit me" to the dealer. My buddy was beside himself with the bet before his eyes and said "what the fuck are you doing man"

36 is my favorite number in roulette next to 0. I hit thirty six. Tipped the dealer a quarter and left with some 3 stacks. Came in with less that 600. Good times fun tables and bad gamblers.

I’ve only played with my own money in an IRL casino the once and I absolutely hated it there. The atmosphere is so tense and the shout from the person that just lost their money is so depressing. Online casino is the way to go and most relaxing to me personally.
