We’ve all seen it in the movies and we want this for ourselves. People winning big at the casino, beating the odds and then going to live the high life with their millions. However, for us, this is just a pipe dream because we know that the casino bosses rig the games against us…

This is just one of the many myths than players at the casino believe wholeheartedly. We’re happy to tell you that these myths are false! In this article, we debunk some of these and explain our reasoning behind these.

The Game Is Rigged!

How many times, when you’re at the blackjack table, and you lose hand upon hand? We’re sure that the thought must have crossed your mind that the game is rigged in the house’s favour. Well, we’re happy to tell you that this is absolutely not true. Sure, dealers could cheat however – if they did – they could only do this once and this would be spotted by eagle-eyed security staff who would take immediate action against them.

A Machine Is Hot

Another myth that is rife among gamblers is that machines are either ‘hot’ or ‘cold’. And no, if we say that a machine is ‘hot’ it doesn’t mean that you’ll burn your hand when you touch it! Rather, if a machine is hot, this means that it has paid out a lot of winnings to previous players. The assumption is then that it will keep on paying out to other players.

The truth is that any machine – and, for that matter roulette table – can become hot if you play at it for a long-enough period of time.

A Jackpot Only Pays Out Once

When you walk into a casino, you’ll often find a shiny new car displayed with big signs on it saying that the lucky winner of the jackpot will walk away with the car. As it’s the latest model, you’ll probably picture yourself in the drivers seat, beaming from ear to ear… However, you’ll probably shake your head and immediately banish the thought from your head because you’ll think: “I’ll never be lucky enough to win it because someone else will probably get it seconds before I win…”

We’re happy to tell you that, in most casinos who offer a progressive jackpot, if someone strikes it within a certain period that you do, the winnings will be divided between you. So, instead of not trying to get that jackpot, give it a go – you never know what will happen!

A lot of people dream of winning it big at the casino and never having to work another day in their lives. They see others doing it and wonder what they did to become so lucky. They think that this will never happen to them because the odds are stacked against them. The fact of the matter is that everyone has the same opportunity – even you! – so to have a chance at winning the jackpot all you need to do is play.
