6. Parlays are Awful Bets
You might go to a sportsbook and think to yourself that you’re going to win a fortune on some massive parlay where you bet that all 8 teams you selected win. Sure those parlays have big payouts but casinos aren’t giving you close to a fair cut if you win! In reality, the house gets 13 percent on two team parlays as opposed to 10 percent of what you’d be givings up with just betting one team. Casinos know people are trying to get rich quick and the quicker you are able to get rich, the more of a chunk of your rightful earnings are reduced.

Vegas started off as a watering hole in the middle of the desert and what made it a great place to stop for travellers ever since the city was founded. With all the money casinos already make through gambling profits and advertising, does it really make sense to make it less enticing to park and come here?
