How to Win More Money in Vegas

July 14, 2021

Many have gone to Las Vegas, but none returned with a full pocket. This article will show you how to win more money in Las Vegas and become a millionaire

Speaking of gambling, I'm sure no one is unaware of Las Vegas, one of the casino havens in the US. Every year, tens of millions of people visit Las Vegas, bringing in billions of dollars in revenue for casino owners here. Of course, that figure is made mainly from casual gamblers like you - our readers. You just haven’t realized it.

It's natural for you to lose money in Las Vegas, and it's something that happens daily. However, is there a way for you to go against the general rule and win money from the casino? It would be unreasonable for me to say yes, but there are ways to win more money playing at these Nevada casinos. Here are ways to help you improve your odds of winning.

Bet On the Safest Bets

I wouldn't recommend this to the high rollers, but this is what casual players should follow. You should bet a large sum of money on the safest positions and avoid wagering on greedy bets. Why’s that?

You are making a safe bet, which means you have the highest chance of getting something in return. For example, in European Roulette, betting on a specific pocket can get you a hefty 35 to 1 payout, whereas betting on either color results in a 1 to 1 payout. A $100 bet on Straight Up can be multiplied into $3,500! However, the winning odds of Straight Up is just 2.7%, and you probably won’t get anything from this bet the whole session.

On the other hand, Red/Black has a winning odds of 48.65%, 18 times higher than Straight Up. It means you are 18 times more likely to get money from the casino with this bet, even though the payout is much lower. Again, it’s better to get something than nothing at all.

Max Bet On Slot Games Every Time

Among casino games, perhaps slot games are the most popular because of their variety and appeal. The same playstyle with a 3x5 layout, but each slot has a different design and payout, and there are thousands of such games. However, regardless of the format, they all have one thing in common: the more you bet, the easier it is to win big, especially when betting maximum.

Even though the odds of winning are the same no matter how much you bet, the maximum bet on slots still offers many benefits. First, some games don't let players win the jackpot if they don't bet max. This is always clearly stated in the game settings, but most people tend to ignore it, and I have to remind them again and again.

Second, the max bet allows you to win more money, of course. Even though the payout ratio stays the same, winning a big chunk of cash is still preferable to getting a few spare coins, right?

However, everything is only theoretical as it depends on how much money you currently have. You can't start playing with $100 and bet $40 all at once - that's really unwise. In addition, casino games are designed so that you always lose, so the longer you play, the more disadvantaged you are. So it’s best to have a stop, and that's my next tip for you.

Know When to Stop

This is probably something everybody knows, but not everyone can do it. The hardest part about gambling is that it is highly addictive, and at the same time, very profitable. You can make a lot of money, or you can lose it all in one night. Hence, the most important thing is to know when to stop.

Many people convince themselves that they will break the bank on the next spin. Yes, anything is possible, but you need to know that whether you win or lose is entirely random, and the odds of winning something are always lower than winning nothing. So, set a limit for yourself. One of the reasonable numbers to me is 20%: it's neither too high nor too low, but just enough to earn a little while allowing gamblers to play other games.

The bottom line is, stop when your account already has that 20% spread. Afterward, go and play something else.

Don’t Get Drunk While Gambling

This is not as ridiculous as it sounds. If you notice, you will realize that casino usually offers free drinks to valuable customers or some lucky winners. Unfortunately, those “free drinks” are not as “free” as you might think; they could cost you a fortune.

When you are drunk, your judgment will be impaired, and you are more likely to make terrible decisions. This is one of the things the casino can use against you. If you prefer getting rich to being drunk, have some caffeinated drinks instead. They can help you stay focused and make the right decisions at the right moment.

Avoid Slot Games With Big Jackpot

The concept is the same as placing the safest bets. Jackpot slot games tend to have the largest volatility so that you can (almost) never win the big prize. In addition, the smaller prizes are just not worth the effort at all, and you will lose your money eventually if you keep chasing that golden goose.

Instead, I suggest trying out the slots with small jackpot values first. They are low variance games, which means you can gamble much longer than usual and have the potential to win some serious coins. So, why not?


Gambling is meant to drain money from your pocket, and that’s the fact you cannot alter. However, with the five tips I just explained above plus some observations, you can certainly cut down your loss and stay on the hot seat much longer. Who knows, perhaps you could be the next millionaire someday?
