How much to bring to go to AC for Casinos?

My friends and I plan to go to AC for the beach and maybe go to our first casino. How much to bring for the machines or games?

This all depends on your budget. Only bring as much as you can afford to lose.

That's really an individual choice. Don't plan on gambling anymore than you are willing to lose. The casinos have slots for a little as a penny up to $25 or more in high limit areas. Table games in the summer time are usually in the $10 to $25 range as a minimum though some may have a $5 table during the daytime.

Only what you can afford to lose. Don't expect to win, the house always wins in the long run. Go to have fun with your friends. Make a budget and stick to it, don't hit up the casino ATM if you run out of money.

Take all the above advice to heart. Never bet more than you can afford to loose.

But you are really looking for a dollar amoint as a guide. Since we don’t know your circumstances, it’s impossible to tell you. But here’s a guide. If you go out for an evening or afternoon and have no problem spending a certain amount, then use that as a starting point. So a play and drinks, movie and dinner, trip to an amusement park? You spend some $ and call it entertainment...that’s what time at the casino should be. So plan on enjoying the experience. Some tips...take your time, don’t keep hitting the spin button as fast as you can. Stop after a bit, walk around the casino. People watch. Share with a friend, cheer each other on. Or join forces, each put in an amount and take turns. Just have fun.

Be sure to get a PLAYERS CARD at the casino before you start playing.
