Have you ever wondered ‘how much money should I bring to a casino?' Well, the answer to that depends on many factors, and there is a wide range for the amount that you can spend at a casino.
How much money should I bring to a casino?
Well, it depends on which casino you are visiting, and what type of gambler you are. Casinos in Goa charge anywhere between ₹800 to ₹1,500 as entry fees, depending on the casino. The charges can increase to up to ₹3,000 during the weekends or during the peak tourist season.
The entry fee usually covers the basics like your food and live entertainment. Most casinos will give you OTP chips of a certain value, to get you rolling. The OTP chips cannot be exchanged for cash, and have to be used at one of the many gambling games.
Most casinos also provide unlimited free alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic beverages at the gambling tables.
Some casinos like the Deltin and Big Daddy casino have VIP packages for high rollers, with additional benefits like access to an exclusive VIP lounge, a higher value of OTP chips, better dealers or croupiers, and higher betting limits. Such packages can cost around ₹5,000.
Casino Paradise, which is a part of the Neo Majestic hotel, has packages that can go up to ₹30,000 for persons and includes OTP chips, a 2 day 3-night stay at the hotel, as well as complimentary meals and pick-up and drop facilities.
How much are you willing to spend?
While the amounts mentioned above are the basic that you might need to spend, there is no upper limit to what you can spend in a casino. Most casinos are more than happy to make you spend money at games like poker or roulette. After all, the more money you spend, the more likely they are to make money off you, because, in the end, the house always wins.
How much money should I bring to a casino? The bottom line is, you should only carry the amount of money to a casino, that you can afford to lose.
