Outfit Ideas: Craps

August 6, 2017
outfit ideas for playing craps

When I know I’m going to the casino; I like to dress accordingly. I like to plan my outfit around the type of casino I will be visiting. There are many casinos where outfit choice isn’t an issue – you can literally turn up in jeans and a hoodie, and you’ll be fine. But there are other casinos that really pride themselves on their exclusive clientele and expect their customers to dress to impress.

 

Personally, I like to dress flashy, yet comfortable, as I love playing Craps. Because this casino game is played standing up, I like to feel like I am not restricted in my movement, so I choose clothing that is light and flowy.

 

I have two go-to outfits that I wear when I know I’m going to be playing Craps. I either choose to wear a loose dress or straight legged trousers and a glitzy top. Although I love wearing dresses, I only choose to wear A-Line style dresses to the casino because I don’t feel so constricted. I can still feel glamorous and stylish, but I still have room to maneuver myself around the table to watch the dice fall. Sometimes, though, I just really don’t feel like wearing a dress, and would much rather wear trousers around the casino. Wearing plain trousers doesn’t need to be boring because you can jazz your outfit up with a patterned or glitzy top that will add that stylish top…without being over the top.

 

The footwear you choose to wear to the casino is a make or break decision. If you choose the wrong footwear, your night could be full of pain and plasters…and nobody wants that. You want to have a good night and hopefully, win some money…without having to worry about whether you can feel your toes anymore. When I play Craps, I normally wear ankle boots that have a slight heel. Flat shoes in a casino just aren’t for me, but sometimes you need comfort over style, so I compromise. Wearing heeled ankle boots allows for standing, but still look stylish.

 

If I choose to visit a casino that is not so strict on clothing requirement, I normally won’t go full-out with my accessory choices. I always take a clutch bag with me wherever I go for convenience, and add a few delicate pieces of jewelry here and there to compliment the outfit and add a little bit of glitz and glam.

 

With this kind of outfit, I usually go with whatever hairstyle I feel like at the time. When you look at your outfit, it is normally easy to figure out whether a hair-up or a hair-down would be the best option, so it’s always worth trying out a few different styles. Craps is a game that is spent standing up, and you may have to lean over a table here and there, so you don’t want your hair to be in your face and obstructing your view…because it’s incredibly irritating.

Five Top Table Games for Your Next Party

January 6, 2017

Home casinos are all the rage today. You can bet small and pull out when you feel like it. The problem is that not everybody is familiar with most casino games. Some have complex rules that some players cannot hope to learn in a couple of hours. It’s also expensive to hire a slot machine. So what games should you play if you have a home casino night?

Roulette Wheel

The Roulette Wheel is one of the simplest casino games. You can buy home Roulette kits from most toy and game retailers and online. All you need is a wheel, a ball and the mat with the cells to place your bets. Watch the fun unfold as your players take bets on where the ball will land. Although some of the bets are complex, you can make the game at your home casino simpler by deciding that some options are out of bounds.

Blackjack (And Its Variations)

No player need feel daunted by card games. Blackjack (and its variations such as 21 or Pontoon) is one of the easiest games to play. Be clear on the rules, as some people may be familiar with one version and not the other. Either way, all variations on the “21” games are simple and accessible for those who have never played a card game. It’s fun too! Simply, players compete against each other and attempt to make the number 21 from their hand by sticking with their hand or choosing an extra card.

Poker

Poker is one of the most popular and glamorous of card games. That said, it’s not easy to learn all of the rules. Some of your virgin players may struggle at first. Thankfully, there are many versions of poker – some poker variations are easy to learn, others not so much. The great thing about the game is that you don’t have to be a great player in order to win a hand. Poker is all about bluff, after all. You can win with a bad hand if you can convince other players that it is a good hand.

Craps

The dice game is a number simple casino game you may wish to play at home. Most households have dice. As we are all so familiar with this diverse playing piece, picking up the rules as you go should be easy. There are no competitors in this type of game, so there would be no motive for people not to help those unfamiliar with the game to understand the rules, and what constitutes a winning or losing throw.

Baccarat

Mistakenly believed to be one of the more difficult games to learn, Baccarat is no longer as popular in casinos as it once was. It became a glamorous game thanks to James Bond. In the books, Bond was a keen baccarat player. In the recent film version of Casino Royale, Baccarat was switched for Texas Hold Em Poker. It works on a simple premise and if there are four or more of you, this can be fun and exhilarating. Two players compete against each other while everyone else bets on who will have the higher value hand. Many hours of fun guaranteed.
