Last year, I was lucky enough to spend many months in the United States of America. Florida is a beautiful destination and West Palm Beach is one of those places that offers something for everyone. It's funny but while I've been sunning myself by day, I haven't been to the many casinos by night. It's too easy to go open the laptop and check out the USA best online casinos.
As it happens, while in Florida, myself and Marlene booked a mini-cruise to the Bahamas and a day at Nassau.
The cruise liner named Grand Classica a giant of a ship (if that is the right term). Onboard they have the customary casino. I can't say I have felt inclined to play roulette on board as there are better things to do and the dreaded double zero just gives the house (or ship) more chance to see you lose your shirt.
So even though it is a less fancy location, you cannot beat going to the casino in the UK.
I do enjoy getting to Great Yarmouth and the Grosvenor Casino which resides on the front of this Norfolk seaside town. In fact, this listed building is like a mansion. Well, it is a mansion and even frequented by Edward the VII, the future King of England.
I have been to this casino on a number of occasions after going to the horse racing at Great Yarmouth and a bit of a jolly boys outing.
Noe, here's the point that you don't need to lose your short when betting at the casino. It's just a matter of using all the casino's promotional power for your advantage. Take it from me, it makes a big difference in winning and losing cash.
For starters, check out the Facebook page for a meal deal, free bets, match bets and free drinks offers.
In fact, if you go to the horse racing and give your ticket to the casino cashier's desk they will give you a free £5 match bet and alcoholic drink voucher so you have literally been given a tenner just to turn up. I'm not sure if this is allowed by all but I've seen people get many tickets from the races and change them to four or five vouchers and have a match bet of £50. That's quite incredible if you have no intention of betting more than that original sum.
In an instant, you can beat the house rake and if you are lucky enough to win early you can put your money in your pocket and leave with cash in hand and shirt firmly on your back.
So don't be fooled by those who say you can't beat the house and have a good evening in a refined setting.
I have done this on many occasions and literally have a day at the races and stay overnight in a decent hotel without costing me a penny because I used these free promotions and a little bit of luck to win £100 and all expenses were paid.
Who says gambling doesn't pay?
