Casino Etiquette to Know Before You Go

Visiting a casino for the first time is an exciting experience. So you feel instantly comfortable, our friendly staff is ready to help you learn the ins and outs of casinos and are happy to answer your questions. There are a few things first-timers should know, which is why we’ve provided a few tips below to help you feel more confident.

Set a Budget

The easiest way to lose more money than you should is not setting a budget. Decide ahead of time how much money you want to spend on the day’s entertainment, and only play with that amount.

Stow Your Phone

Cell phones aren’t allowed at casino game tables, so make sure you put it in your pocket or purse before sitting down to play.

Buy Chips

Buy chips at the table by laying your cash on the table, not handing it to the dealer.

Know the Minimum & Maximum Bets

All tables will clearly post the minimum bet. Know what minimum bet is best for your budget so you can choose the appropriate table.

Ask the Dealer

Not sure about the rules of a game you want to play? Ask the dealer for help!

Tip the Dealer

Casino dealers are just like other hospitality staff and do appreciate tips from their players. Consider tipping your dealer using low-denomination chips while you’re winning.

Cash Out

Dealers don’t have access to cash at the tables, so you’ll need to head to the cashier’s booth when you’re ready to cash out.

Get a Rewards Card

Most casinos, including Leelanau Sands, offer great rewards programs for discounts on food and lodging as well as rewards for playing. Sign up for the Players Club when you get to the casino to make the most of your play!
