A night out with the girls at the casino

When you’re a mum, nights out become much rarer than they used to be. But it’s important to make time to spend with your friends, some of whom you’ve probably known since you were a child yourself. Friendships need to be nourished, just like other relationships in your life. Granted, it may be more difficult to make time to have a night off for yourself when you’re a mum, but the fact that it can’t always be arranged at the drop of a hat makes you look forward to it even more.
So what to do when you’re with the girls? It’s great to do something different and one of the latest trends is to go for a night out at the casino. Most of the larger towns and cities in the UK have casinos, and you can always pick a date way in advance to make sure that everyone has time to sort out babysitters. It’s sometimes easier to book out a whole weekend, so that you can all stay in the same hotel and spend a decent amount of quality time together. You might go out for dinner one night and hit the casino on the second night, for example.
If you’ve never been to a casino before it’s a good idea to get some practice in online first. On a site like 32 Red casino you’ll find every casino game you can think of and you don’t even have to pay to play. Most of the games can be played in demo mode, where you can practice placing different bets and using different playing strategies, all without risking any real money. Of course, if you want to play with real money, you can switch to real money mode at any time. Casino sites offer generous welcome bonuses to new players and this is usually in the form of free playing credit to match the amount you put in yourself. At 32Red it’s better than that – for every £10 you put in, the site will give you another £32 of playing credit.

The great thing about going out for a girls’ night at the casino is that you have a fantastic excuse for dressing up. Unlike a night in the pub, a casino night means no holds barred on getting out your slinkiest dress, your feather boas and high heels. Everyone dresses it up for a night at the casino and that’s all part of the fun. It adds to the feeling of glamour and decadence as you take your chips and decide whether to bet on black or red at roulette, or whether to double down, split or stand at blackjack.
The important thing to remember if you’re going to play casino is to set yourself a spend limit and make sure you stick to it. The likelihood is that you will lose most, if not all of it, so if you go in with that expectation, any wins you have will be an absolute bonus!
