- What if cricket player going to a casino for the first time?
19 December, 2012
As an ex-croupier and cricket blogger then I have spent more time inside an online casino with cricket players than I can care to remember. I have seen them from both sides of the tables and have witnessed the “good”, the “bad” and the “ugly”. In that time I have seen more players lose money that they couldn’t afford to lose than I can shake a stick at. A casino can be a very unforgiving place for the cricketers but it can also be a great place to visit as well.
Firstly every cricket fan need to remember one very important thing and if you can remember this then you will be fine. This is that the casino always has the edge in all of the online casino games just like in cricket that they host. Over the long term then you will never beat the casino and no should you even try. If you simply view it as nothing more than pure entertainment then you will not only be fine but you will have a very entertaining and rewarding experience as well.
To simply view a casino as “evil” or “crooked” based on assumptions or things that you have seen on TV or read in some magazine is incorrect. A casino is simply a place of entertainment for cricket players and nothing more. Sure….there are addicted gamblers, cricket punters and fans inside every casino. However the statistics show that the percentage of people that are addicted to gambling pale into insignificance when compared to people that are addicted to things like cigarettes, drugs and alcohol.
