Although blackjack is one of the most player-beneficial casino games, blackjack tables at land-based casinos often remain empty. We would like to give you some tips on how to arouse players’ interest in blackjack.
Organize your blackjack lessons when there are a lot of players in the casino. You’ll have to give a table and pay money to the instructor. However, these costs will be repaid a hundredfold if you manage to attract new blackjack lovers. Promote your lessons. Teach your clients not only blackjack rules but also the basic strategy. When the course is over, the most diligent and hardworking students can be given small chips that are not exchanged for money and are accepted at blackjack tables only.
Many clients avoid playing new games due to lack of skills and experience. Introduce table with low limits and narrow range of bets. To those tables you should assign patient dealers that are able to answer numerous questions and conduct the game at low tempo. Distribute tables with basic strategy among novice players. All this will make it easier for players to get familiar with the game and feel more confident. As soon as they feel confident enough in their skills, they’ll start playing at common tables and raising their bets.
Organize various blackjack tournaments, lotteries and other special offers that attract players that make both small and large bets.
Here are a couple more tips on how to create a comfortable atmosphere at blackjack tables in order to attract new clients:
Don’t use shuffle machines that are continuously shuffling cards. They kill players’ hope to win at blackjack;
Don’t let your dealers act like shuffle machines. They should be friendly and ready to help;
Open new tables at players’ requests;
Don’t encourage mockery over novice players from experienced gamblers and stop indecent behavior;
Offer your clients to play blackjack with one deck and tell them about the benefits of this game;
Fight card counters in a civilized way and don’t sack out the player on the first suspicion of card counting;
Organize more tables with low limits;
Refuse from some rules that unbeneficial for players, e.g. blackjack paid as 6:5.
Honestly speaking, many casino owners are simply afraid of making blackjack popular with their clients. Not knowing blackjack rules, they think that this game is a true “golden mine” for players. Moreover, they discourage clients from playing blackjack by introducing tough rules and unacceptable limits of bets. Don’t act like them. It’s extremely hard to beat the casino at blackjack or make blackjack a consistent source of income. In conclusion, we would like to note that sometimes it’s worth the pain to “raise” a good client that will stick with your casino for a long time and leave their money there.
