No Valentine’s Date? Find your soul mate at a casino
There are two big reasons why people head to a casino. First, there’s the fun factor and the thrill of busting the house and hanging with friends. Second, there’s the prospect of walking away with more money than you came with.
While the second is a big deal in many people’s books, others head to a casino to hit a different kind of jackpot and score something even more rewarding than a Blackjack.
Some people head to a casino to find their soul mate. While it might sound ridiculous at first, it actually makes way more sense than trying to meet someone in a bar. The main reason? It’s easy to strike up a conversation with a stranger seated next to you at a Casino War table than it is to strike up a conversation with a stranger sipping on a cocktail at a bar or club.
That’s because people who head to bars or clubs can spot a pickup line a mile away. Imagine you’re sitting alone, minding your own business, when someone comes up to you to strike up a conversation. It’s fairly obvious that they want to get to know you, regardless of whether you’re interested or not. You have nothing in common at the moment except that you happen to be under the same roof enjoying a drink.
But if you’re minding your own business, playing Baccarat, and someone pulls up next to you and starts talking about the game…or the last hand that you both won…or the craziest dealer they’ve ever had, it’s not out of the ordinary and conversation can flow naturally.
Looking to find your soul mate at a casino? Here are some tips to help you on your way:
• At the tables, choose the anchor position. If you’re playing a game like Blackjack, being the anchor has its advantages. You get to decide what to do last. Your decision can affect the entire table and sitting at the end offers a great opportunity to talk through your move with everyone at the table. It’s a great way to break the ice with everyone, including a potential love interest.
• If you’re a lady, poker might be your game. Not a ton of women play poker, so you’ll definitely have your pick of gentleman at the poker tables. And if you’re great at the game, you’ll have a solid advantage because too many men think (very mistakenly) that women aren’t good at the game. That leads them to make poor moves, which could lead to a big win at the tables.
• Play Craps. If there’s one game that stands out in terms of camaraderie, it’s Craps. When someone wins, everyone cheers. When someone loses, everyone consoles one another. Plus, the setup of the table allows for people to make eye contact and play together. Who knows? You might even end up staring your future spouse in the eyes.
