How to Choose a Table to Play at the Casino

If you’re new to casino gaming, the thought of venturing away from the slots and trying your hand at a table game can be intimidating. But even the most advanced players were beginners at some point. Whether you’re looking to try blackjack, roulette, craps, three card poker or other table games at The Mill Casino, here are a few things to consider when choosing a table to play.

The Limit

When perusing the table games pit, you should take note of the minimum and maximum allowable bets posted on each table. As a beginner, it’s in your best interest to choose a table with a low limit. That way, you can learn how to play the game without breaking the bank. Start slow, and then build up.

Additionally, low-limit tables typically have a low-pressure atmosphere. That means the pace of the game is likely to be slower. Plus, more people are likely to join in, so you can socialize while studying up on the rules of the game.

The Mood

You’ve scoped out the gaming floor. Did you pass by a table where the players were all having a great time? What about a table filled with serious players? If this is your first rodeo, you’ll want to pick a table where both the players and dealer are having fun. In addition to encouraging an enjoyable experience, a table packed with happy, laidback players will make you feel more comfortable if you need to ask a few questions about the rules and gameplay along the way.  Also, remember that the dealers are pulling for the guests and are always available to answer any questions.

The Style

If other players are constantly switching from table to table, you won’t learn nearly as much as if you sat down with the same players for a good amount of time. Locate a table with a pleasant group of players and a good dealer where you can stay and play for some time. You’ll get a good feel for the game and be much more comfortable.

Get Ready to Win

Ready to try out some casino table games? Visit The Mill Casino at 3201 Tremont St, North Bend, Oregon today. We’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week with slots, table games and more.  Table games hours vary based on the time of year, check our website for the most current hours.   (add hyperlink)

  1. Make Time for Employee Engagement

    If you have time, get out and explore with your colleagues. Hiking through Shore Acres State Park or whale watching in the Pacific Ocean can be great ways to bond with each other between meetings. You may be having fun, but spending time together can help strengthen your team, too.

  1. Schedule Some Much-Needed R&R

    Take a break from paperwork and conference calls by taking advantage of all the amenities The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park has to offer. Even if you’re only here for a night or two, there’s always time for a quick run on the treadmill or a dip in the pool or spa. Investing in yourself like this can help clear and rejuvenate your mind, so you’ll be refreshed and ready to go for the next meeting.

  1. Celebrate Big Wins at the Casino

    Give yourself some credit for all the hard work you’ve put in and treat yourself to a few hours in the game room. Our casino has over 700 slots and a great selection of table games available to satisfy anyone’s interests.

  1. Savor a Delicious Meal

    Enjoy yourself with a meal at one of The Mill Casino’s bars or restaurants. Relax over a mouthwatering filet mignon and a waterfront view at the Plank House Restaurant, or enjoy everything from hand-carved meats to delectable desserts at the Saw Blade Buffet. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail, stop by Whitecaps for an evening of laidback elegance, or catch the game and the best wings in town at Warehouse 101.

  1. Be On the Lookout for Exciting Events

    If you have an extra day or two to enjoy the Coos Bay area, check out local tips for events at the casino and around the community.
