If you are a true gamer who hits the casinos to win money, not simply play the games for fun, you don’t want to take your family with you when you go. You already know you can’t take your children in the casino, but, you also don’t want to make your game time a time for your mother-in-law, spouse and any other adults you happen to have with you on vacation. If you have a group of people with you on vacation, don’t play the casinos for money or you can be distracted and lose money.
When you are going to the tables or the slots to try and win money, you don’t need the distractions that family can often bring. If you are playing and your family sees that you have a good hand, you don’t need them alerting the others at the table with their excitement. You know how to bluff and you don’t need for them to mess up your game. Distractions can cause you to lose your money and you don’t need that.
If your family wants to go with you to the casino, that is fine, just don’t plan on playing for big money or being able to concentrate on your game. You will need to be prepared to show them how to play different games and how to have fun but you won’t be able to take the time to play serious games where you can actually win. Don’t sweat it; this is your family’s vacation time. If you want to make time for your own gambling and make it serious time, you need to schedule your own trip of set aside some time that you can use for yourself without being distracted by anyone.
Family vacations are not gambling time. You can show your family the casino and let them try their hand at the slots but you don’t want to think you are going to have time to sit and play as if you are on your own. The bottom line is that you shouldn’t take your family on a vacation that you want to use as a venue to have time playing the tables.
