Outfit Ideas: Slot Games

August 12, 2017

Sometimes dressing to impress can have a real impact on how we act, and therefore on our performance at the casino. When it comes to slot machines, admittedly, any impact it might have is tempered by the fact that almost all of the outcome of these games is dictated by nothing more than luck, but it never hurts to stack all odds in your favour, and why not have a bit of fun with the theme?

Slot games come in several shapes and sizes, with five-reel games coming up against three-reelers, or even ones with free reels which blend into each other or are of decreasing size, upside-down pyramids, or weird vortexes. Almost all of them, however, have themes, and so your outfit should be chosen to reflect this. The obvious choice, and a unisex one, is the infamous fruit of traditional slot machines. Don a red ball outfit and pass yourself off as cherry, whilst sipping an ‘appletini’, in keeping with the spinning fruit on the screen or slot in front of you. Gold bling-bling jewellery also wouldn’t go amiss, to reflect the dollar signs and gold bars flashing up in front of your eyes on these old-fashioned machines you’ll find in casinos.

If you’re a fan of the more modern, video slots, then you might also be a fan of fancy dress, and so you can buy into one of the more popular slot themes and take it to the extreme. Have a cortege of male loin-cloth wearing men carrying you in on a sedan chair, as you lounge like Cleopatra, or Marc Anthony, eating grapes and being fanned by your minions, before they set you down by a slot such as Mega Moolah isis or Cleopatra’s Chest.

An idea that might get you throw out of the casino but which would be a lot of fun is to take yourself for Thor for a day and smash your glass hammer about the place, incurring the wrath of the Gods and directing your fury at the other gamblers around you (this behaviour is in no way condoned or encouraged), reminding everyone of many great Thor and Nordic mythology-based slot games.

To take the theme a literal step further, then make yourself a real slot machine get-up and strap it to your chest with a lever coming out of your side, so that people can have a spin on you and see the symbols come up on your torso. Use cereal boxes, hamster wheels and felt tip pens to recreate this look, though it may take some time and a lot of creative energy to achieve the desired effect.

If you prefer something simpler, then a baseball cap, socks and sandals, a cup of tokens and dark glasses will always do the trick, and ensure that the serious, professional slot player look is pulled off to perfection. Whether you choose to imitate a slot theme, the slots themselves, or serious slot players, just make sure you do it in the right spirit, and don’t get in anyone’s way of winning!

Outfit Ideas: Roulette

July 16, 2017
outfit ideas for playing roulette

There’s nothing better than planning your outfit for your night out to the casino – because when you look good…you feel good.

 

When I go to the Casino, I love playing Roulette. To me, Roulette is a true casino game and reminds me James Bond, villains, and Bond Girls. And who wouldn’t want to be a Bond Girl? This James-Bond-Style fashion is the kind of fashion that I aim for when I’m planning my outfit, and I always think to myself…would I look good alongside Daniel Craig in this dress? If the answer is not yes, I need to change.

 

In true Bond Girl fashion, I like to wear a dress that makes me feel confident and beautiful…and compliments the black and red of the Roulette wheel. I always find that black is the safest option when it comes to dresses. Not only is it incredibly flattering, but it also goes with anything and everything, so you can always choose to mix and match your accessories to brighten up your outfit. Personally, I love my black dresses with a high neck and bare back because you always have to accentuate what you’ve got. So if you’ve got a nice back…flaunt it. If you’ve got nice legs…flaunt them.

 

Unlike many other casino games, Roulette is a game played standing up, so you need to be comfortable standing up for long periods of time. So 6-inch heels are a big no-no. Unless you feel comfortable wearing that kind of shoe. If you’re one of those people, I commend you. If I know that I’m going to be playing Roulette that evening, I like to wear slight heels – high enough to be considered heels, but small enough to be able to walk in. This makes me feel confident and sexy, but not the point where I have to take a packet of bandages in my clutch bag…

 

Bond Girls are known for their diamonds, so smother yourself in them! Whether it’s diamond rings, earrings, necklaces or bracelets, diamonds are the best accessory to any outfit and will make you the best looking Roulette player around the table. More is definitely less in the casino world and is all about keeping up appearances, so if you’re going to do it…do it with a bang. Of course, if you don’t have any diamonds, any other jewelry can be worn. It can sometimes be nice to wear delicate jewelry that sits well on your body but doesn’t overpower your outfit.
Hair is so important when completing an outfit. When playing Roulette, I always opt for a sleek ponytail to complete my sleek outfit because I do not want to take away from the outfit I have painstakingly chosen. I don’t want anything covering my dress, and a ponytail on a bare back is just fashion perfection. A ponytail is also a practical tactic, as Roulette requires a lot of bending and moving…so the last thing you want is your hair falling all over your perfectly preened face.

Quiz: Which Casino Game Best Suits Your Personality?

December 24, 2016

I was playing on Casumo casino and I realised, with so many games, what kind of personalities are attracted to each? Are you undecided on which games to play at the casino? Do your friends keep asking you to compare your personality to concepts and inanimate objects? Now, you can amaze your friends by showing them precisely what casino game you are.

Question 1: How Do You Like Your Coffee?

A: Wet and hot. Beyond that, I don’t care. Coffee is coffee.
B: Light, fruity and easy to drink, perfect for a Sunday morning.
C: Big brand label, preferably rich and dark. Give me something new and I might try it
D: Anything that looks a little different. I’m adventurous like that
E: I am fussy because I look for quality. It has to be the right type of coffee before I go anywhere near it
F: Jamaican Blue Mountain. Only the best will do!

Question 2: Plan The Perfect Date

A: Coffee shop! Cheap and cheerful; maximum of one hour. I don’t like to stick around for long
B: I prefer to try somewhere familiar but always open to suggestions. That’s the luck of the throw, after all
C: Let’s start off somewhere simple but turn it up a notch if it goes well
D: I like to take my chances. Let’s see where the wind takes us?
E: I make a suggestion and watch my date closely. If he or she isn’t liking it, I change my stance too
F: Only the restaurant with the best reviews in town will do for a date.

Question 3: What is The Perfect European City Break?

A: Copenhagen: Not the first place you’d think of, but a pleasant time is always had
B: Somewhere new such as Berlin. You like to take your chances, but you also like to know what to expect before you get there
C: Amsterdam. You know why some people go there, but you’re not sure it’s for you. You’ll start off visiting art galleries but curiosity will get the better of you
D: Let’s just turn up at the airport or the railway station and see what they have leaving in the next hour? Dubrovnik? That sounds good!
E: London. Cultured and grand; there is so much to do and there is an electricity to the place that you cannot get elsewhere
F: Monte Carlo, preferably during the Formula 1 weekend.

Mostly As

Slot Machines. Simplicity is your life philosophy. Why waste time playing the long game when you can have a few quick rounds on a slot machine before moving on to something else? Maybe you don’t like the commitment, hate to have your time wasted, or maybe you get bored easily.

Mostly Bs

Craps is your game of choice. For you, life is like a throw of the dice. You want to have some control over the direction but are never fazed by curveballs. You take the rough with the smooth and willing to get up and try again. Craps is a bit like that. It’s a mix of chance and skill, just like life.

Mostly Cs

Call it Blackjack, 21 or Pontoon, but this game means you are willing to take the occasional chance “just in case”, even when you seemingly have a winning hand. You like the comfort of the familiar. However, you are never afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone. If you don’t like it, at least you gave it a go.

Mostly Ds

You utter risk taker, you’re Roulette. You know that the biggest chances and biggest wins in life come from taking risks. You’re prepared to put everything on chance and you take some big risks too. We’ll bet you once walked out of a well-paying job to start up a business, and when that didn’t work you tried again?

Mostly Es

You’re Poker. Why? You’re attracted to quality and you like to plan well. You want refined, but you also don’t like to take chances. You play the long game in everything, waiting for the right moment to make your move. Nobody is calling you a control freak, but you do like to have things a certain way.

Mostly Fs

Only the best and most expensive will do. Congratulations, you’re Baccarat. The game of James Bond presents itself an air of mystique, and so do you. You will not settle for second best. You will not settle for Asti when Champagne is offered. Baccarat is elegant in its simplicity, but never shows it.

How to Win at Roulette Like a Bond Girl

June 8, 2016

Bond Girls had it all; the looks, the money and the luck in the casino. But worry not! You too can have some of that some Bond Girl luck and make some big wins in the casino for yourself. Here’s how…

 

Flirt your way to winning

Quite simply, you can flirt your way to a big win. Whether you flirt with the dealer of each game or whether you flirt with the general manager of the casino themselves, you can quite easily flirt your way into winning if you play your cards right (pardon the pun). 

 

Win by association

A lot of Bond Girls were often lucky because their husbands or fathers were valued members of the casino, or even owned the casino. If you know someone who is high up at the casino, such as an investor or shareholder, make yourself known to the dealers, and you’re sure to get lucky all night long. 

 

Drink your way to winning

Not you personally. Find a man to partner up with all evening and keep his drinks flowing. When he needs taking back to his bedroom, put him to bed like a polite young lady… and then steal all of his winnings from the night. As saucy and sly as a true Bond Girl! 

 

Win as a lucky charm

Agree to be a man’s lucky charm for the night as long as you get a portion of all of his winnings. Better yet, wait until his back’s turned at the bar and then take all of the winnings in sly and sneaky Bond Girl style! 

 

Guilt trip your way to winning

Are you just having the worst time? Did your cheating husband run off with all your money? Are you trying to win some back? Probably not, but who cares? Bond Girls were conniving at the best of times, so make sure to use this trait yourself to try and earn some extra winnings.

 

Cheat your way to winning

Bond Girls always knew how to cheat. Learn some tips from the movies or look some up online. Yes, technically it is illegal to cheat at the casino, but did this ever stop a Bond Girl before? No! So don’t let it stop you either. 

 

Shoot your way to winning

If worst comes to worst, whip a gun out from a suspender under your dress (as obviously, that’s where they’re stashed in Bond Girl style) and hold the dealer at gunpoint while you take every last penny possible. Of course, this method is not advisable but if you want to be a genuine Bond Girl… well. Why not give it a go? 

 

Alternatively, you could just study up on the rules of roulette and make a genuine win, because a lot of Bond Girls were just genuinely good at casino games! But hey, where’s the fun in that?
