A high roller is a player whose bets are significantly higher than the bets of the casual casino members. A popular myth is that you must wager several hundred € per hand/ spin to become a VIP member. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Well, fine – this IS true for the land-based casinos where your bet must start from €1000 and eventually someone might notice you. However, that’s not always valid for the online casinos.
Before inviting you to their VIP club, online casinos take into account different factors such as the length of your gambling sessions, the average bet size, the type of games you prefer. The land-based casinos have a person who oversees the gambling process but in online casinos, this activity is performed by software. So, if you meet the requirements, you get an invitation. In other words, it is easier to become a VIP player at an online casino, but keep in mind the following. The game action unfolds more quickly as compared to the land-based casinos. Therefore, if you make five €200 bets per hour online, a player at a land-based casino will make one €1000 bet, which is kind of the same thing. This is neither good nor bad. It depends on your point of view. You don’t need to make massive bets online to become a VIP player, but beware the fast pace of the games as it might damage your bankroll.
Our best advice is – do not take unreasonable risks, do not chase comp points, and do not play for the sake of getting free stuff. Make sure you have a sufficient bankroll or you can afford a credit.
On the other hand, you must have heard of the story of Archie Karas who turned $50 into $40 million. You may aspire to Kerry Packer – the larger-than-life player known for his titanic wins and loses. If these two have stayed in their comfort zone, we would not have remembered their names. The bottom line is: do not underestimate casino’s inbuilt advantage, trust your gut instincts, use a betting strategy if you wish, but more importantly, manage your bankroll and come back with more money to gamble on the next day.
