General Casino Rules

Let's consider the basic rules of casino etiquette that are obligatory at all games. Every time you wish to play at the casino you should remember that any casino game involves other people that is why you need to follow the special etiquette rules in order not to get into unpleasant situation or look ill-bred.


  • Do not touch the chips on the blackjack table after you made the bet.
  • If you are going to Hit or Stand use the special gestures.
  • At many casinos the players are not allowed to touch the cards with both hands.
  • Do not use abusive language and never accuse the dealer when he deals you bad cards.
  • Feel free to ask the dealer in case you don't know some of the casino rules.
  • Do not accuse the dealer of cheating and never ask what card there is in the hole.
  • Don't talk much at the table, remember that it is not polite because it may distract somebody's attention.
  • If you use the basic strategy chart at the table, don't refer to it very often.
  • If you do not like anything at the blackjack table and thinks that the dealer is not competent just change the table.


  • In case you want to change money with chips, do not hand money to the dealer as he is forbidden to take money directly from the gambler. You have to place the cash on the table and only then ask to change.
  • Do not touch the chips on the craps table and keep hands away from the layout just not to disturb the gameplay.
  • Use the table rails for the chips and tiny shelves for drinks but do not put them on the table.
  • Try to be polite and don't cry out at the craps table.
  • Not all the bets can be placed by the player at the craps game that's why you must ask the dealer to make some specific bets for you.


  • Don't play at the multiple slot machines if you cannot watch them all.
  • Play only at one machine in case the casino hall is crowded and there are many gamblers wishing to play slots.
  • When you play slot games and need to leave the machine for some time and want to show others that you are still gambling, put the cup on your seat.
  • In case someone forgot the playing card in the machine, just put it on the top of the slot machine.
  • Smoke at the casino only if it is not prohibited.


  • In case you just want to watch the play, don't take the free table seats as they are for those who play only.
  • The players are not permitted to make bets after the croupier says 'No more bets, please'.
  • According to the Roulette Tips, the players are not permitted to touch the chips on the betting area or sweep away their winnings from roulette table by themselves.
  • If you wish to tip the dealer, put the chips aside your bet to let him understand that those chips are not bet.
  • Remember to exchange chips for cash when you leave the roulette table as you won't be able to get your winnings at any other place rather than at roulette table.
