Basically, if there are no casino houses or online casinos that you can bet on, you cannot gamble.  Instead of searching for a new casino to visit, you can have yourself restricted or banned to any gambling establishment. You can also block all casinos online to your computer and other devices nor make bets with anyone even if it’s just a “friendly bet”. But the best tip of all is to restrict yourself from going anywhere where there’s a gambling opportunity.


No matter how simple is a friendly bet, it can spark your gambling habit so be sure to make the right decision before accepting the challenge. To help you decide, think of the consequences first that you can face for gambling. Instead of gambling, try a healthy activity to keep you busy like going to the gym or engaging sports.

If you already tried these things and you still can’t stop yourself from gambling, try to find someone you can talk to. Someone you can talk to about anything under sun whenever you have the time or do a movie marathon together!

On the other hand, the situation for gaming employees is quite different. Most of the time they are not allowed to gamble or play within the casino house that they also work in.  For instance, casino dealers are not allowed to play any table game and slot machine technicians are not allowed to play slot machines. It is true that casino houses also like the idea that even casino employees patronize their own houses. However, it also leaves them vulnerable since gaming employees know too much about the ins and outs of the house.

The departmental restrictions only apply to the casino house where employees work though. As a matter of fact, most casinos in Las Vegas allow their employees to gamble inside the house. But then again, take note that casino houses may also add restrictions anytime they want. So, be careful gambling if you’re a casino employee.
