Did you know over a quarter of Americans visit a casino at least once a year? According to the American Gaming Association, that number will only grow as more tribal casinos open across the US and legalized gambling expands beyond Las Vegas. It’s easy to see why. Unlike most other entertainment and nightlife options, casinos offer that glimmer of hope of winning big. And even if the night ends without a jackpot, the thrill of possibility adds a measure of excitement you just won’t find elsewhere.
For those who have never been to a casino before, venturing out for the first time may seem a little bit intimidating. But don’t worry. There’s no fuss here at Golden Acorn Casino in San Diego. All we want to do is help you take your fun up a notch or two.
Still concerned about the whole new-to-the-casino thing? Ok, we hear you. Take a look below at our top tips for casino beginners. They should put you at ease and get you ready to ramp up the fun-factor in your life.
Tip #1: Learn the rules
Gambling is by definition a risk, but there’s no sense in worsening your odds by not understanding the rules of the games you play. Slot machines and bingo are pretty self-explanatory, but if you have your eye on a table game like Blackjack or Poker, be sure to read up on rules and strategies before you go, or try out some free online games for practice. And if you blank on the rules once you’re already at the table, don’t worry—dealers will typically help out and offer generalized advice, so don’t be afraid to ask.
Every family has its own holiday traditions, often involving lots of gifts, tons of food, endless baked goods, and an abundance of lights and decorations. Some of it requires a lot of work and comes with a great deal of stress. This year, why not consider adding a new tradition to the mix—preferably one that allows you to give yourself over to the spirit of joy.
Whether you’re looking for an alternate plan for Christmas, New Year’s, or just some more excitement to fill those long, chilly December nights, Golden Acorn Casino in San Diego might be the holiday miracle you’re looking for. Here’s why:
Feast with no fuss
Holiday feasts typically feature a meaty centerpiece and a variety of side dishes and desserts, but all that food means hours upon hours of prepping and cooking and even more time afterward to clean up the mess. Wouldn’t you rather enjoy a sumptuous holiday meal without the fuss? Golden Acorn Casino’s Golden Grill serves up mouth-watering prime rib every day, plus all your favorite appetizers, salads, soups and more for a festive feast that can accommodate even the pickiest eater’s tastes.
A trip to the casino is never a bad idea. You gather up some friends, hit the road, and get ready for hours of excitement centered around the hopes of wining big. But when is the best time to go? Well, that depends on what you’re looking for. Are you looking for a quiet time when you can concentrate and learn to play a new table game? Are you hoping for a party atmosphere? Or are you hoping to score big on the slot machines? Before you decide when to go, ask yourself why you’re going. Then take a look below at some of the best times to visit and play at a casino.
Best times to visit a casino for Blackjack players
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games, not only because it is fun and relatively easy to learn, but also because it gives the player some of the best odds of winning.
Beginning Blackjack players may want to visit the casino in the early afternoon when tables are less crowded and minimum bets are at their lowest. At this time you can learn to play the game without stressing over upsetting more knowledgeable players who are betting big bucks. In the early afternoon you are also more likely to find a table that has only a two-deck shoe which helps increase your odds even further and makes it easier to keep track of which cards have been dealt.
If you are more an advanced blackjack player looking for more action at the table or hoping to be challenged by a six-deck shoe, you’ll want to hit the tables at night when the casino is more crowded. If you want to easily score a seat at the table, it’s a good idea to show up at the casino in the early evening.
There’s never a bad time to visit Golden Acorn Casino, but with the abundance of incredible offers and giveaways this holiday season, venturing out our way in the coming weeks is a no-brainer.
