When we started LegitGamblingSites.com, we had a vision. We wanted this website to be a complete resource about casinos both online and land-based. That means we have to cover absolutely everything, big and small, complex and simple, fascinating and slightly dreary, about casinos.
Think of this page as a portal. In various sections, you’ll find buttons which act as doorways into different sections of the site. Each is about casinos, of course, but each is about a slightly different element of casinos.
Whatever it is you want to know about casinos, you will find it here. From how to act in a casino to where the top gambling destinations are to what the best casino films are, we have created the number-one resource on the internet for casino-related topics, and you’re at the doorway into it right now.
This page is called “All About Casinos,” after all, so that’s what you’ll find here.
How Casinos Win and How to Improve Your Chances
If you don’t understand anything about casinos or casino games, the chances of you losing money increase dramatically.
To give an example of why, take the concept of the house edge. This is the built-in mathematical advantage the casino has in each game, and it varies wildly from game to game! For example, in blackjack, it can be a fraction of a percent, whereas in keno, it can be as much as 20% or more! You can learn more about house edge on the page linked to below.
Of course, the house edge is just one factor in the equation. There’s also strategy and how you play the games themselves. While some are down to pure chance (keno, scratch cards), there are other casino games in which you can improve your chances of winning (blackjack, poker) depending on how you play. You’ll find more information about casino game tips, tricks, and strategies in the “Ways to Improve Your Chances at the Casino” page below. Click the button to visit that information hub.
Last but not least, there’s bankroll management. Casinos use every trick in the book to separate you from your cash as fast as possible. You can turn the tables by using effective casino bankroll management techniques. Want to know more? There’s an entire section dedicated to this topic, too.
Understand Land-Based Casinos
Whether you’re in Las Vegas, London, Melbourne, or Macau, land-based casinos all share similar traits, from the way they reward players to the rules they expect you to follow while in the casino.
We’ve put together the following pages to help you better understand how land-based casinos operate. In the “Comp Points” page, you’ll learn how casinos reward loyalty in the form of free play, access to VIP rooms, free stays in penthouse suites, and complimentary food and drinks, to name a few things. We’ll also explain how you can qualify for such treatment.
If you’re new to playing at land-based casinos, we understand that it can seem confusing. From when to take your turn in any given game to what to wear to what’s acceptable and what’s not, casino etiquette is an art in itself, and there’s a casino subculture with its own set of rules. We’re here to help you understand those rules, and you can visit the casino etiquette page below to begin learning how things work.
One of the best things about land-based casinos is that no two casinos are the same. There’s no comparing the Bellagio in Las Vegas to a riverfront casino in New Orleans, and there’s no comparing that to a super-casino in glitzy, glamorous Macau. Want to know more about the best gambling destinations in the world? We thought you might, so we’ve created a resource for that, too!
This ties in with casino etiquette to some degree, but understanding the lingo used at casinos is so important that we decided to give it its own section.
Would you understand what we meant if we said you needed to talk to the croupier? How about if we explained that a dealer had just burned a card? What if we asked you to make a decision to either hit or stand in a game of blackjack?
If you know what all of those terms mean, you can probably skip this section. If not, or if you would like to refresh your memory, then this page on casino slang and terminology will be invaluable to you.
After all, nothing will make you lose faster than having no clue what’s going on.
The Casino Business
Did you know that global casino revenues are projected to reach 191 billion USD by 2022? That’s a lot of cash, and it just goes to show how big an industry this is. Casinos are money-printing machines, and there’s a lot to learn about the business side of things.
We’ve created various pages which will guide you through the different aspects of the casino business. From how casinos make money to how much you can earn working for one to who the big names in the casino business are, these pages will be of interest to you if you’re interested in learning more about this ever-growing global industry.
Native American Casinos
Speaking of booming business, the Native American gambling sector takes things to a whole other level. Indian casinos are popping up left and right across the USA, and there are now native tribes which issue iGaming licenses, too.
Yet there are lots of myths and false beliefs about Native American casinos. For example, there’s a common belief that all tribes are rich from gambling. We set some of those myths straight and report the real facts about the Native American gambling industry here.
We also show you where to find the best Indian casinos and how they differ from some of the casinos you’ve played at before.
Casino Credit – How It Works
We would never advise you to get into debt to gamble. That’s just a bad idea, and wanting to do so is one of the key symptoms that you might have a problem with gambling.
But casino credit is widely available. We’ve created this resource page to explain what it is, how it works, when it’s appropriate to use it (and when it isn’t), and how to use it safely if you’re going to do so.
Not all casinos offer credit, but some do, especially if you’re a VIP. Learn the ins and outs of casino credit on this page.
Casinos – From Then Until Now
When you think about casinos, the history of them might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the history of casinos themselves and some of the casino games can be fascinating.
We cover everything from the first-ever casino in Italy and how it got started to the prohibition of casinos in America. We encompass everything from the amazing evolution of slot machines from single-coin games to virtual reality and immersive experiences to how Las Vegas grew from a military “pit stop” in the desert to the most famous casino hub in the world. And we review some of the biggest heists, scams, and robberies in history. There’s a lot more to the history of casinos than you might think.
If you’re interested in knowing more about the colorful, eventful history of casinos, we’ve got you covered.
Casino Entertainment – The Best Casino Movies
Who could forget the scene in “Casino” when Robert DeNiro slides into his Cadillac and it explodes, almost blowing him to pieces? Or how about when George Clooney and friends take down the Bellagio in Ocean’s 11?
There have been some fantastic casino movies made over the years, from those about mobsters involved in the industry to those about legendary card counting crews and people who beat the house to those made for sheer entertainment about robberies and heists which never happened in reality.
We decided to create a resource to help you find all the best casino movies in one place. We review them, tell you what we like (or don’t like) about them, and point you in the direction of where you can find them. Are you ready to be entertained?
