Headed to Vegas for some gaming?
Are you into Blackjack? Prefer Poker? Wondering if a dealer is called a dealer or a croupier?
Whether you’re a first-time gamer or a professional, it never hurts to brush up on your gaming skills.
Luckily, many Las Vegas casinos offer free gaming lessons where you can take advantage and learn new techniques, gaming terms, or gaming etiquette.
Yes, many visitors already know these topics when they come to Las Vegas but not everyone.
But don’t get your dice in a twist, Las Vegas is ready and waiting with open arms to show and teach you how to play table games.
- Typically, when taking a free lesson, the guide or instructor offers basic rules, how a game works and will deal out example hands to get you familiar with various scenarios for when you play against dealers.
- Additionally, you usually will get to “play” a few practice hands using practice chips to see if you’ve got the hang of it.
- The instructor also will share various odds and how you would be paid on each hand.
Since many visitors take advantage of free lessons be sure to book a time or arrive early wherever you decide to take a lesson to get a place at the table for hands-on practice.
More than Gaming
In addition to learning the basic rules and strategies of various games, the lessons can help you learn etiquette and terminologies associated with each game.
You don’t want to not fit in with seasoned players while you’re playing craps by blurting out the wrong phrase or yelling out “All-in” when you have no clue what this means.
Free gaming lessons also teach what places you can and cannot touch on the tables and how to place your cards or chips on the table – all great tips for someone just starting.
Keep in mind free lessons aren’t just for amateurs – if you’re a veteran gambler, you can take advantage and learn a game you’ve never played before or discover a few helpful hints to up the ante on your gaming skills.
Bear in mind, free lessons at many casinos on “The Strip” fill up fast so be sure to call and ask what time lessons are being offered as they may have changed due to pandemic restrictions.
Here are some of the casinos offering free lessons:
- Boulder Station

Taking advantage of the free gaming lessons Las Vegas casinos have to offer – be it for Poker or Craps – could help you be a winner now and in the future.
