Casino Etiquette

Although casino newcomers don’t need to feel intimidated about approaching a table for the first time, there are a few basic courtesies that can make the experience more enjoyable for everyone. We’ve put together some basic casino etiquette to help you through your next trip to our casino in Elko.

For starters, being aware of others and their personal space is a good idea—while gambling can be an exciting activity, most outbursts and profanity tend to irritate other players, and are inappropriate in general. More specifically, when at a table, we encourage you to keep to your own seat—don’t lean on your neighbors—keep items like wallets and bags off the table, and always be careful with drinks.

Card shuffles are the best times to join our blackjack or poker tables, especially during crowded hours. At a craps game, try to avoid leaning over the table or dangling your hands. Here, it’s also better to place bets when the dice are in the center of the table, rather than being pushed to the next shooter. Please avoid throwing chips haphazardly.

Finally, while we encourage patrons to stick with one slot or video poker machine at busy times, it’s important to remember that this doesn’t make one “your machine”—please be flexible and respect others’ rights to the same machines as you. Both the casino and your fellow players appreciate your consideration!
