5 Ways to Save Money at Live Casinos
It takes money to win money. Gambling can be expensive and it is always a good idea to try and save money where you can. Often, a trip to the casino can take a huge chunk out of your wallet, and that’s not including the money you can lose while gambling. Today, we will take a look at five ways you can save money while gambling at live casinos. These tips will help make casino trips a bit more affordable or they will give you a little more money to use playing casino games.
Many casinos offer coupon books as a way to draw players into a casino. Coupon books give a variety of discounts and even free play at the tables. These coupons range from discounts on buffets, free play at the tables, discounted room rates, discounts at the gift store, and much more.
If you and your spouse or significant other go to the casino, you should both try and get a coupon book. This will give you double the discounts.
Whether you play pokies, blackjack, or baccarat, it is a good idea to join your casino’s player’s club. Being a member of a player’s club will usually earn you special offers that can be used at the casino, even if you don’t play a lot. Casinos will use these offers to drive traffic to the casino. These offers can range from free nights at the hotel to free play, free meals, and more.
Of course, you can also earn rewards through your play. You’ll earn player points that can be exchanged for free play or other perks at the casino.
Self Parking at Live Casinos
If you like to use valet parking, you know the expense that it incurs. If your casino offers free self-parking, you can save a few bucks by using this option. Granted, you will usually have a bit of a hike to get from the parking area to the casino. If you don’t mind the walk, you can save some money.
However, consider your safety when making this choice. If you plan to play a lot at night or are in areas that are somewhat suspect, this may not be the best option.
Play at Live Casinos During the Week or Off-Season
If you plan to stay at the casino while playing, then you should consider going during the week or during the off-season. Both are times where the casino is looking to put bodies into rooms and the casino. As such, you may be able to find fantastic deals on rooms.
For example, going to the casino on a random Tuesday will almost always get you a better room rate than going on the weekend or during the summer. You may get rooms up to 80% off depending on the casino and the time of year you decide to go.
Buffets, Discounted Shows, and More
There are other discounts available at the casino, but you generally have to ask around to get them. The first is discounted buffets. Often, you can get discounted or even free buffet meals either based on your play or getting in touch with the right person. If you happen to be staying at the casino already, you will probably be able to get at least one free buffet out of the casino.
Next, if your casino provides regular entertainment, do some digging to see if you can get discounted or even free tickets. Shows that run daily or multiple times per day often struggle to meet a reasonable capacity. Casinos try to fill seats by offering discounted or even free shows. Free shows will generally be to lesser-known performers. Ask your casino concierge or the front desk about any discounted shows available.
Finally, don’t be afraid to talk with floor staff or your concierge about getting discounts or comps at the casino. Most often, players don’t get comps because they fail to ask for them. If you are playing regularly at the tables, you can usually get some form of discount. Also, if you’re playing during the off-season or during the week, the casino may give you some comps to try and keep you there. It doesn’t hurt to ask. At worst, they say no. However, more often than not, you’ll get some form of discount.
