Talkin’ the Gamblin’ Talk

Anyone playing with a full deck, regardless of whether they speak English or American, will be amazed to discover how many expressions used in everyday speech actually come from the world of gambling. No bluffing.

In gambling – as in life – you can only play the cards that you’re dealt. For instance, when it comes to games of the heart, you’d be wise to play your cards close to the vest before laying all you cards on the table. After all, why settle for a double-dealing cheat when you really deserve a straight-shooter?

Indeed, if you play your cards right, you too can become a better gambler. But be careful not to press your luck; Though you may be prepared to bet your boots coz you’ve got an Ace up your sleeve, remember; your opponent may have a couple of Aces in the hole.

The reason why poor gamblers lose (and losing gamblers are poor) is that they’re so hell-bent on winning their piece of the action that they eventually wind up betting their bottom dollar. For instance, take craps. No, I’m not suggesting you take any craps from just anybody. What I AM saying is, while one player may prefer to play the field, another may be all gung ho about betting the farm. Good luck, but no dice. At the end of the day, cashing in generally requires being on a roll, and that – as you know – comes down to the luck of the draw.

Also, if you’re betting on bagging the biggest bang for your buck by zeroing in on the best online casino, understand that with more than 2000 sites out there to choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle, let alone find a decent casino. Sure you might get close, but no cigar. Unless, that is, you begin your search at any of the leading Internet casino portals like my personal favorite  Casinos VIP Lounge . After all, if you’re looking for the inside track on gambling, why not get it straight from the horse’s mouth?

So if you’re down on your luck, and the chips are down, put on your best poker face and say those three magic words, “Deal me in!”
