If you like to have a cocktail every now and then, keep your money out of the casino if you are going to do your drinking in a casino. I am serious. Clean out your handbag, your money belt, and leave all money, plastic credit and chequebooks back at the hotel. Pack whatever cash you intend to spend on alcohol, tipping and only the pocket change you intend to burn and keep the rest behind.

Pessimistic? Not by any means. Realistic more like. You may well experience a win after a boozy evening out with your acquaintances and be blessed sufficiently to hook a marathon roll at a smokin craps game. Hang on to that adventure seeing that it is as short-lived as it gets if you continually consume alcohol and wager. The two just do not mix.

Leaving your cash at home might be a bit drastic, but precautionary actions for excessive behavior is compulsory. If you bet to win, then don’t consume alcohol and play. If you like to throw away your money nary a concern, then drink all the free beer your stomach can handle, but do not pack plastic credit and checkbooks to throw into the mix of going after squanderings after your drunken head loses every little thing!

Allow me to carry this a single step further. Don’t drink alcohol and then go on the web to bet in your preferred internet casino either. I love to drink from the coziness of my home, however seeing that I’m hooked up through Neteller, Firepay and keep plastic credit at my fingertips, I can not drink alcohol and gamble.

Why? Although I don’t drink alcohol to excess, when I drink alcohol, it is definitely adequate to cloud my common sense. I gamble, so I don’t drink alcohol when gambling. If you are a drinker, do not gamble when you do. Both make for a decimating, and expensive, cocktail.
