But there's a right and wrong way to squeeze money out of a local gaming joint. No one know this better than casino guru Steve Bourie.
For almost 30 years, the Hollywood-resident has studied the ins and out of casinos, breaking the whole deal down into math and probabilities. After running local blackjack tables by counting cards for a number of years, in 1992 he began writing the annual American Casino Guide, an intricate state-by-state look at a gambler's best bets for success.
"People are so lazy they really just want to go in there and pull a handle," Bourie tells New Times. "In reality it's more complex."
Bourie briefed New Times on a number of simple tips for seizing the advantage inside a casino, whether you're trying to earn a few more holiday dollars or just improve your usual play.
