New year, new you! Well, maybe not completely but setting some New Year resolutions might be a good thing. Here are a few ideas for online gamblers.
Start a gambling journal
No matter how long you’ve been gambling, there is always a new useful habit that can help you improve your strategies. For example, you can start keeping a gambling log. Get yourself a notebook and note down when you gamble, what games you play, how much you’re putting on the line, and how much you’re winning. After some time, you will notice a pattern and be able to see if you’re actually successful or losing more money than you can afford. This can help you change some other gambling habits you have.
Learn more about the RTP of the games your play
If you don’t already look into every game you play, it might be time to start. Something you can start with is learning more about the RTP of each game. That will show you how high your chances of winning are. Whether you’re betting on horses or playing the slots, knowing your odds means knowing what you can expect from each endeavor.
Read a book on gambling
Something that might have not crossed your mind is reading a book about gambling. Whether you want to tackle serious things like addiction, learn more about how to play a certain game, or read some fiction, it’s up to you. There is a variety of books on gambling to choose from, no matter if you’re located in the Netherlands or the United States.
Venture into sports you know nothing about
How about trying something completely new? If you’ve never before bet on Irish rugby, let’s say, why not wager a small amount of money on a game? Who knows, maybe you learn something new and realize that you actually enjoy betting on something else as well. Fortunately, the variety is so large that you can do this countless times.
Try a crazy prop bet
Just like you can try new sports, you can also venture out of sports. Nowadays, there are so many different areas that you can bet on. For example, you can place a bet on who will win an Oscar or an election. You can even bet on who the first woman on the moon will be. Opportunities truly abound if you know where to look.
Find the best bonus options
You’re surely aware that most casinos offer a wide array of bonuses. These range from welcome bonuses to no-deposit bonuses. Do your homework to find which casinos offer the best sign-up bonuses and which come with the highest amount of free spins. Who has various seasonal promotions as well?
Join a loyalty club
In case there is an online casino that you tend to frequent, have you considered looking into their loyalty club? Almost every casino has a VIP program that comes with various rewards. Every time you log in and play, you earn points. With these points, you can get all sorts of different rewards, such as discounts in restaurants, monthly gifts, and so on.
Look for a new online casino
Perhaps you are not happy with the bonuses and loyalty rewards that your casino of choice offers. With that in mind, you can look for another one. For example, there are always new casino providers entering the Irish market, which means that you should easily find a new operator if you’re located in Ireland. Look at everything from the bonuses to the game selection and payment methods to make sure you are happy with your next choice. The same can be done from any other country since there are new operators emerging in the USA, Canada, the UK, and many other places.
Visit a land-based venue
While there might not be a local land-based casino in your town, you might be able to go on a longer trip and visit a brick-and-mortar venue in another city and get a new kind of experience. No matter if you want to go to Monte Carlo, Las Vegas, or Macau, this can be a fun thing to do, especially if you’ve never been to one.
Set a budget for yourself
If you’re not already doing this, it’s high time you started. You need a budget for every time you go gambling as only then can you be certain that you’re not overspending. If you put too much on the line, you might be risking rent, food money, and so much more. If you need help, consider talking to a professional.
Get a friend to set a resolution for you
Sometimes, you are not aware of your habits. This is why asking a friend and fellow gambler to help you out with resolutions might be a good idea. They might notice a tell or a tendency to overspend. Listen to their advice as they only want the best for you.
There is much more you could add to this list, such as tipping your dealer or not drinking while gambling. Decide which changes you might benefit from the most.
