Casino advice?

I'm off to a casino soon for the first time ever.

Hopefully one or two of the high rollers on this forum could give me some basic tips on what to avoid, and how to make the most of a miserly 100 (what I'm prepared to lose).

I rarely play cards, no idea how to play poker, but prepared to learn!

Lets have your experiences, good or bad. Thanks in advance.

The vast majority of people that go to the casinos in Aberdeen only go for extended drinking hours. Not all that many people play.

The ones up here have blackjack with minimum 2 stake.

Simple game that is still fun and unless you do something daft you 100 could last all night.

If you can't play poker don't start learning in a casino.

Spin on the roulette wheel, the only game which is pure chance. Dont bet on numbers, go for red/black or the thirds of the board. Couple of quid a spin can be laugh.

Play roulette.
Bet on a single colour all the time, DOUBLE your bet EVERY time the bet DOESN'T come in.
When it does go back to another small stake bet.
That gentlemen is for free. Although eventually the table will get you with a bastard bad run (statistical anomaly) and you get bummed.

Lmao is this post real. There is no advice to be given in a casino. If you are an idiot you will loose all your money, if you aren't well you will know what to do.

This is key. Double every loosing bet. It can get scary at times if you have a few consecutive losses.

Eventually you will loose all your money and you are now homeless. The truth about the Martingale betting system is it will only work for sure if you have a infinite supply of money to provide, which you don't.

Dangerous environment. You might think this is a one-off but many people fall into the trap. Usually comes when they win a decent amount and think they can repeat the win.

I would go to a nightclub instead
