According to Forbes, the US Supreme Court made a historic decision to legalize sports betting country-wide in May, 2018.

When gambling at a casino in America, if one is lucky to win, then getting money can be a challenge. Different casinos in America have different rules about how quickly one can get their money after winning.

Some will let you get the cash your payout the same day, while others only allow you to withdraw your winnings after a few days or weeks, which is not ideal if you need the cash fast.

In this article, we will look into five tips on how to get your winnings faster.

Tip 1. Know the Rules At Your Casino

The first step to getting your casino winnings faster is understanding the rules of a particular casino. This way, you will know what kind of games gives the highest payouts, any bonuses, etc.

For example, at most casinos, blackjack gives better odds than slots, but many people play it already, so sometimes, if you want to play slots, you can get a high payout just by playing max bet.

You should also know the rules of your state’s gambling laws so that if you win big, you are not limited in how quickly you can take money out at the casino.

Be prepared for anything while gambling to increase the likelihood of winning big quickly.

Tip 2. Cash In Only the Winnings and Not the Money You Brought With You

Many people gamble with money that is not theirs. If they win big, then quickly, they often try to cash in the chips and run immediately.

They may come back later and say, “Oh, my friend is still here; he/she will pay me back.”, but when it comes time to put down real money, no one has the funds.

If you want to increase the likelihood of cashing out your winnings quickly, then only bring as much money with you as you are going to gamble with.

If a casino employee is trying to stop you from cashing in your chips and getting all of your winnings, it may be a sign that they suspect you have taken money that was not yours or is trying to cash in too many chips.

Tip 3. Tip the Dealer Generously

Tip Your Dealer

Dealers do not get paid much. So if you win big and want to be able to cash out your chips quickly, try tipping generously before cashing in. The reason why dealers don’t make a lot of money is that they rely on tips.

Sometimes casinos will offer free or discounted rooms for them. Some even send them home with extra cash, but it is rare.

So if you want to speed up the process of cashing out your chips, tipping these workers generously will increase the chances of them helping you quickly move to the next step.

A bonus option here is to tip other casino employees as well. At the same time, dealers are tipped generously because they are the ones that shuffle and deal cards. Bellhops and valet workers also make their money from tips.

Often when people stay in high-end hotels, these hotel employees will rush over to help you with your bags.

They often make more in tips than salary. If you want to cash out quickly, tipping generously will ensure that they will quickly get you to the next step of cashing out your chips.

The last point here is that even if you don’t tip these workers, it is nice to thank them for their hard work instead of saying something like, “This isn’t Las Vegas where there are people always trying to sell stuff….”

Casinos tend to be very quiet and laid-back, but the workers try hard to be attentive even though it is not a casino’s priority to make their customers happy.

This may not be available everywhere but if it is, then take advantage of it.

A dealer may be able to help you cash out faster after a big win if you tip them generously. 

In addition, tipping the dealers can also give you traction with security, making your life much easier. This is especially when trying to leave the casino with all your winnings in your pocket.

Tip 4. Apply For Membership to The Casino’s Loyalty Program

Loyalty Program

Many casinos have exclusive loyalty programs that you need to be a member of before cash in your winnings. Many casinos want their high rollers to feel like they are part of an exclusive club.

So when you apply for membership, it will show the casino that you are serious about gambling at their place.

High rollers get comped with expensive rooms and meals. They also can cash in chips faster than other people.

This is because the casino wants to keep their gambling. So never overlook this possibility when looking for the quickest way to cash in your winnings.

Tip 5. Clock Up As Many Hands as Possible Per Hour or Day

Invest Time

As a rule of thumb, most people at blackjack tables will end up about even after the long term. Some days they win big, and some days they lose big. But if you are playing at a table where players are losing money in the long term, then you are in luck.

This is because you can play more hands per hour or day than someone who is winning.

So if you want to cash out your winnings quickly, try finding the table where people are losing the most money on average. Then play as many hands as possible at that table.

The final point here is that this tip can only apply to games like:

  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Craps
  • Baccarat
  • Pai gow
  • Sic bo

In games like slots or video poker, you cannot play more hands per hour.

The reason for this is you have to wait for the machine to payout before playing again.

Then there is the point that this tip can only apply to casinos where players use real money instead of a voucher system.

Many casinos will let you use a voucher system to cash out your winnings so that you can use the money for a new play.

So if you are playing with vouchers, try cashing them out quickly before they change their minds.

In conclusion, the best way to get your winnings quickly in a casino is to be a high roller and play at tables where people lose money. If not, you need to have membership in the casino’s loyalty program so that they can comp you for staying there.

This will ensure that the casino feels obliged to pay your chips out right away if that is what you want.

You can also try cashing out your chips quickly before the casino changes its mind. And if you are playing with vouchers, then always cash them in right away since they may take back your winnings or change the terms of your voucher without informing you.

If you follow the tips highlighted above, you will have an easier way of cashing out your winnings.
