The Staff Shall Not Help You in any Way While Playing.
One of the most important online casino tournaments rules is that no player shall be advised by a member of staff of the casino on how to play any of the casino games. The assumption made by the casino is that the moment you took your seat on the table or the slot machine, you already knew all the rules of playing that game. You shall therefore not ask any member of the casino, whether the waitress or the manager, on how to play a certain game or what move you should make next.
The house (casino) does not want to take the blame when you lose neither does it wants to take credit for your winnings. No matter how hard you try to convince a member of the casino staff to help you out while playing a certain game, they will not do it. This is because by doing so, they are putting their jobs at risk. The only time that a member of the casino staff is going to talk while you are playing a game is when he or she is explaining the rules of the game to you and making sure that you are adhering to those rules.
Minimum and Maximum Wagers shall be Set by the House.
The minimum and maximum amount of money which can be bet while a game is going on shall be set by the casino operator. This is to prevent some players on wagering very low amounts while others wager extremely large amounts. The moment that these limits are set, there will be no debating with the casino operator for them to be altered. Also, this maximum and minimum limit will be displayed on the table so that all players in the game will know their values. This will usually be done on a piece of paper that is not going to be moved while the game is going on. This piece of paper is structured and positioned in such a way that all players can see it yet it does not affect the progress of the game.
Constant Wagering is Compulsory.
There are some casino tournaments rules that state that a player in a particular game who does not place any wagers for three consecutive rounds will be asked to leave the table by the casino operator. This is because while others are actively taking part in the game by throwing their money on the line, there will be others who are extremely cautious and do not be easily. This is said to reduce the enjoyment of the game.
Therefore, to keep the game entertaining for those who are placing their money in it, anybody who does not place a wager for three consecutive rounds will be asked to leave the table and cannot defy this order. However, the eviction in such a case is not to leave the casino building entirely but to simple leave the game that is in progress. In addition to this rule, casino players and spectators are forbidden from placing any side bets on each other.
