10 surprising things that affect your game
Gambling can be a relaxed form of entertainment for many of us, but it can also be taken more seriously by others. If you are one of those who takes a more strict approach to gambling, now is the time to prepare for your sessions accordingly. Here are 10 things you should consider that could impact your next gaming experience.
Eat like a winner, play like a winner
There is an old saying in sport that goes “healthy body, healthy mind”. The theory is that if you can keep your body healthy, it will also ensure that your mental state is healthy as well.
If you are planning a big session in the casino, you should eat the right foods ahead of time. Binging on junk food before this session is not recommended. Your energy levels will suffer.
Refined sugar found in junk food has been proven to cause spikes and crashes in blood glucose levels.
If you want to stay sharp at the tables and slot machines. Get your five a day, prioritize fruits, veggies, and water. No alcohol either!
No sex before the game!
Does having sex before a big competition or event have a negative impact on performance? Well, there is still some debate about the veracity of this.
Research has suggested that pre-sport sex can tire individuals more quickly if the act was done 2 hours or less before sport. However, there is still a lack of concrete evidence to support this.
The same can be said for gambling. Do you really want your concentration to be clouded by the shabby memories of what you did in the bedroom (or wherever you participated in the dirty act)? Or do you want absolute clarity in your head when calculating the odds and potential outcomes at the casino tables? Do not take any risk. Save this for the roulette table.
Don’t play tired
The worst time to play is when you’re not thinking correctly. If you’ve had a rough week at work or aren’t getting enough sleep at home because the kids are playing, put that trip to the casino on hold.
The casino will test many factors related to fatigue and alertness. Stay alert. Make sure you are up to date with your sleep patterns. Don’t let the house win.
Bankroll management is key
Don’t walk into a casino without a financial game plan. If you fail to put together a bankroll management plan, you are on the one-way street to bankruptcy. The key is to enter the casino with the view that the money you are taking is money spent. It is not money invested.
Decide how much you are prepared to lose and work with it. If you don’t know how much you can afford to lose, you could end up burning a big hole in your wallet.
Go it alone!
A controversial topic here. If you really want to walk out of the casino with the best chance of making a profit, do it on your own.
We’ve all been there. Head to the casino with your friends, co-workers or your partner. It’s a great social occasion. That’s good, for fun. If you’re serious though. you hit those tables with no one by your side.
The last thing you need is for someone to brag about how much they’ve won when you lose. Or someone raining on your parade bemoaning their losses if you are on a winning streak. You don’t need it. Go thug. This is all up to you.
Don’t forget your watch!
OK, so we live in a time when not all men have a Rolex or a classic watch handed down from their grandfather. You are more likely to have a clock on your phone.
Whatever you do, don’t forget this clock. The casinos want you to lose track of time and they will do everything possible to get you in the moment. Take a watch to keep track of the time and even set an alarm.
You are not in a movie
You see them every time you go to the casino – the guys wearing their tuxedos and the girls wearing their cocktail dresses, making it rain with the dollar bills. Fools.
Never make yourself think you are James Bond or Ginger McKenna. Acting like you are the gift will not change your luck.
If you need Snake Eyes to win at Craps, don’t expect that to happen. If you need a full house on the river to win a hand in poker, don’t expect it. Reality hits hard in the casino. Definitely hope but don’t expect.
It is practice makes perfect
Yes, gambling is all about luck. However, there is an element of truth to taking a chance.
If you’re ready to hit the blackjack or poker tables, it doesn’t hurt to practice online freeplay before you play.
If you have slots in mind, have them tested online free to avoid wasting money on games that suck.
Avoid getting too bloated
At the 2016 European Championship England national football team goalkeeper Joe Hart said he was too bloated and this led him to make a number of fundamental mistakes . You may be the victim of the same problem.
Listening to the Rocky theme melody or high tempo dance music might sound like a good idea, but it might actually hurt your judgment.
Certain music has been shown to improve reaction speed, focus, and circulation in athletes. It’s fine for athletes, but you need to be quieter in the casino. Pick the wrong music to prepare for the game and you might lose focus and see a negative impact on your mood.
The last and most important point is to make the game fun. If you don’t like it, why do it?
The minute you find going to the casino is a chore, so cut it off. You are the master of your own destiny.
