Step 4: Avoid ATM Machines
Now, this is something that people usually never remember, but it’s crucial to remember that you should avoid using your debit or credit cards to retrieve money from the ATM machine. This is to prevent you from challenging your willpower to spend more. Knowing that you have money saved up in your bank account could only tempt you to spend more. Try using the ‘assurance’ that you will not get any money bank to stop yourself from spending your hard-earned savings. Remember, your savings are for you to use when you are facing emergency situations, and gambling is one situation that would never be an emergency. The best measure is to leave all ATM cards at home and only carry cash when you are going to the casinos to gamble.
Step 5: Limit Your Gambling
The next thing you should do is limit your gambling time. This can be done by keeping tight schedules, and ensuring that you follow them. Instead of going to the gambling dens every day, you could instead go once or twice a month. This way, you won’t be constantly surrounded by the temptation to gamble away your hard-earned money. On the other hand, if you are one who loves to frequent the casinos, then you should limit the time spent there. Take for instance you go to casinos every once or twice a week. Instead of spending countless hours there or even staying the night over, you could limit your time to only 4 to 5 hours. Once your appointed time is over, you should get yourself out of there.
Step 6: Use Hotel Rooms
I know I just said that you shouldn’t stay the night over, but if you absolutely have to then it’s good to use hotel rooms. Most casinos have hotel rooms for their patrons and oftentimes, these hotel rooms are cheaper than what you spent on your game. Get yourself a room and take frequent breaks instead of playing continuously. Once you’re well-rested you’ll be able to make better decisions.
Step 7: Avoid Alcohol
Now, this step is kinda tricky because most gamblers like to indulge in alcohol when they are playing. If you are professional then by all means, this is fine. But if you’re an amature player, it’s advisable to avoid alcohol, lest it clouds your judgement and causes you to make wrong decisions.
Step 8: Game of Luck
The last tip I can give you is to remember that gambling is a game of chance and you would always be the lucky one. If you’ve been lucky enough to win, you should know when to stop. Don’t push your luck, only to lose all the money that you’ve won. Know when to stop and don’t push your luck.
