If you enjoy a cocktail occasionally, keep your cash at home if you plan to do your drinking in a casino. I’m serious. Leave your handbag, your billfold, and leave all cash, plastic credit and chequebooks out of the casino. Only take only the cash you anticipate to use on refreshments, tipping and whatever pocket change you intend to squander and leave the rest behind.

Contemptuous? Not really. Realistic more like. You could experience a win after a drunken night out with your comrades and be blessed sufficiently to catch a long toss at a hot craps table. Hang on to that story considering that it’s as short-lived as it gets if you consistently drink alcohol and bet. The pair just do not go well together.

Leaving your moola back at the hotel is a little drastic, but precautionary actions for excessive behavior is a requirement. If you gamble to win, then do not drink and gamble. If you can afford to burn your $$$$ without a worry, then drink all the complimentary beer you are able to handle, but do not pack credit cards and checkbooks to toss into the mix of following squanderings after your dead drunk brain throws away everything!

Let me to carry this one step further. Don’t drink alcohol and then jump on the web to wager in your favorite internet casino either. I enjoy a cocktail from the coziness of my apartment, but seeing that I’m linked up through Neteller, Firepay and have credit cards in close proximity, I can not drink and wager.

Why? Even though I don’t drink alcohol to excess, once I drink alcohol, it is absolutely enough to cloud my common sense. I bet, so I don’t drink alcohol when gambling. If you are more of a drinker, don’t wager when you do. Both create a dangerous, and costly, drink.
