Have you been invited to a casino but not a big fan of gambling? The truth is you don’t have to gamble at all in a casino, you can always do one of the many other activities and services that most big casinos will offer…
10 – Enjoy a Drink
Most casinos have drinking bars and some even have cocktail areas to sit down, relax and enjoy yourself. Some will even have a free bar! But you will have to at least buy some chips before you can use it.
9 – Enjoy Some Food
Many casinos will have some sort of food service. From a free buffet to a food court attached to it. Mostly away from the gambling, it can be a great place to arrange to meet friends.
8 – Watch Sports
No matter how small a casino is, most of them will have an area where you can enjoy local and worldwide sports. Mostly for betting on, but it doesn’t mean you have to.
7 – Watch TV
Even the smallest of casinos will have a TV somewhere often playing the local and regional news, but some will be showing the main channels. If it is quiet you can even ask the barman to change the channel for something you will enjoy more. But that would be a bit rude if there are many other people in the bar enjoying something else.
6 – Socialise
90% of a great casino experience is all about the people you are with and that doesn’t mean you have to gamble. In fact, many casinos even host single meetups!
5 – Enjoy the Atmosphere
You don’t have to gamble if sat at a playing table, you can always watch someone else win or lose. Sometimes it’s just fun to watch someone else on a winning streak.
4 – Learn
If you want to become a professional poker player the best way to learn is to watch professional poker players do their thing and where better to do that, than at a casino.
3 – Watch a Show/Movie
While it only happens in the biggest of casinos there are still some that will have live shows, music and even play movies! It’s always worth checking online to see what your local casino does offer as it might surprise you.
2 – Events
While this will depend on the night you are going, some casinos host all sort of nights. From business networking events to charity evenings. You will often find these events are more fun than gambling all night!
1 – Enjoy the Rides
Sure, only the biggest of casinos have theme park rides and rollercoasters within them, but what I am saying is a night out in Las Vegas doesn’t have to be about gambling. The only risk you have to make is the risk of riding the thrill rides. The word “casino” might have you think of betting and losing money, but to me, it means entertainment and a great night out.
