The Unde is one of the lesser-known gambling clubs in Europe, with only a few tables and a big screen TV for people to while away the hours playing cards and/or blackjack. This is mostly a slot machine and roulette area, which means 90% of the time you’re going to be relying on luck, rather than planning your strategy for the game.
While this may sound like a bad thing, having a bit of ‘luck’ is all part of enjoying life. When you walk in there is usually very little human interaction, which can be both good and bad. When the bell rings announcing the start of the next round, it means you’ve got an excuse to meet new people and interact with others.
How Does Booting Work?
To start playing at The Unde, you need to make a deposit of £10 which gives you £20 to place bets with. After this, you just need to make sure you place your bets before the bell rings to end the round. This is simple enough, but there is a catch. Sometimes the management will ‘hold’ a round for a little longer than expected just to give the appearance of fair gaming. During these extended rounds, there will be more opportunities to win or lose money, which means it is essential to remain focused and aware of all the betting rules, or you could find yourself broke. This is called ‘booting’ and can apply to both roulette and blackjack rounds. To avoid this, always check with the dealer or house croupier before placing your bets, or you could be doing some serious damage to your wallet.
What if I Do Lose?
The main thing to remember about The Unde is that you are playing for fun. This means losing isn’t the end of the world. In fact, it could potentially be a good thing. Imagine the scenario: you’re having a bad run of luck at the slot machines, and you decide to visit the casino for a change of scene. As you walk in, you see people are gathered around a blackjack table, so you sit down to play. You watch the dealer deal the cards, and as he begins to shuffle them, you realize he’s not going to stop dealing until someone wins. You’re not sure if this is your lucky day or not, but either way you decide to stick with it. As it turns out, the dealer had seen your last round at the slots and he knows you’re out of luck. He begins to systematically destroy your bankroll, until you eventually admit defeat and leave with an empty wallet and a bad taste in your mouth. This is why you should try to avoid losing at the slots, as it could potentially lead to you losing your entire bankroll at The Unde. Always assume you’re going to lose at least some of what you bet, otherwise you’re probably going to have some kind of behavioral issue. There is no shame in losing money at gambling, but there is in losing huge amounts of money. Avoid this by never betting more money than you can afford to lose. We wouldn’t want anyone to become a statistic now, would we?
What If I Don’t Like Luck?
To give the gaming experience as near to ‘real life’ as possible, The Unde doesn’t always use decks of cards or spinning wheels to determine your fortune. Sometimes they use a ‘Random Number Generator’ (RNG) which, in layman’s terms, makes a bunch of numbers generated at random, and these numbers are what determines your winnings or losses. While this may sound quite complicated, in reality it’s just a fancy way of saying ‘guesswork’.
Even if you feel like you have perfect ‘luck’, you never know when this may not be the case. For instance, if you have a particularly bad night and all of a sudden find yourself winning all the money at the slots, you might want to consider whether this is ‘luck’ or not. If you don’t believe in luck, well then there is another option. Some people play roulette for thrills, others play to lose. Some like to play both ways and see which way the luck is going to swing. If you’re looking for an efficient way to lose money, playing roulette is often a good option. The problem is when people play for the wrong reasons. Why play if you aren’t having fun? Why play if you aren’t feeling lucky? Why play if you think you can ‘beat’ the game? These are all bad situations and lead to people having serious problems with gambling. So, if you feel like you’re not having fun anymore or you’re not feeling lucky, it’s probably time for you to leave. Better to be safe than sorry.
Playing cards and roulette at The Unde is easy enough, but the truth is it’s not really ‘playing’ if there isn’t any element of skill involved. The house edge is high and the losses can be quite significant. If you’re looking for a way to blow off some steam, you could try spinning the roulette wheel or playing cards for amusement purposes only. You might find you have better luck this way and have more fun overall.
