What To Wear To The Casino

The casino industry is seeing a new wave of players in recent years who never thought to step into their doors before. More people are getting a taste for gambling based on their experiences at an online casino. In fact, online gambling is one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

After sitting at home in your pajamas making bets online, you may decide to enter the “real world” of gambling and venture out to a local (or closest to) casino or maybe just start with a bingo hall.

While the old-fashioned bingo halls attracted mainly working class or retired women in headscarves, modern bingo halls are more like casino entertainment centers.  You won’t find many old ladies wearing headscarves in those. Casinos’ varied themes, culture and price points can make it even more confusing.

It all begs the question: What do I wear to the casino?

I’d love to say that you have to dress to the “nines” to get into a casino. However, they’ll trade your money for chips as long as you abide by the laws of decency. GQ Magazine said it right: “If you expect fashion from American casino patrons, then you’ve seen too many James Bond movies.” Taste aside, the best policy is to dress like a winner. Even if it’s just a pair of dark-washed, wrinkle-free jeans and a blouse with polished cowboy boots, look like you’re there to win rather than leave with enough money for cab fare home.

This lack of a dress code even reaches the luxury casinos in Vegas. The difference is that now you’re in an environment full of A-list celebrities, pro athletes and a wealthy international crowd.  You’ll get better cocktail service and be taken more seriously if you adapt to the environment.

Remember to dress sassy not trashy. Prostitution is rampant in Vegas, and if you dress too skimpy, the hotel may think you’re soliciting and escort you out the door.  I’ve seen it happen!

It’s against house rules to take photos at tables, but here are some celebrities in Vegas. Take a cue from their styles and run with it.

    I think you have a typo and some incorrect info..”.Prostitution is legal AND Vegas” does not make sense. Also, prostitution is actually ILLEGAL in Las Vegas and most of Nevada with populations over 700k. The rural areas there are some brothels that are legal, but not in Reno or Vegas.
