Here at Lucky Nugget there are many games that you can play, that all require different characteristics and qualities from the player. Whether it’s the quick decision making, the ability to stay calm under pressure or just to stay focused, the casino can be demanding in certain aspects and therefore it’s important you’re at the top of your game.

Here we will look at the ways you can stay in the zone, and what you need to do.

Staying hydrated is vital!

Yes, drinking water and staying hydrated is important all the time, so of course it is when gaming. For instance, imagine you are playing at one of the poker tables; the games can last a while and as such can be strenuous to your mind and body. As each player deliberates over what move they should make, or how much they should raise, it will demand a lot of focus and concentration.

Now, without turning this into a science lesson, if you don’t take enough water on board, you will suffer, and that could have severe implications if you are playing a game.

We are advised to have between 6-8 glasses of water a day, which isn’t too much to ask given the benefits that it can bring.

Failure to do so could lead to dehydration, which has a lot of symptoms. They include;

  • Dry mouth
  • Little/No urine
  • Fatigued
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Feeling light headed

So if you ever feel any of those symptoms, it’s important that you grab some water.

Dangers when gaming

As we have briefly touched upon, this can have a negative impact on gaming, as some of the symptoms will affect the qualities that you need to display at the casino.

Whether you’re a fan of poker, blackjack, roulette, or our inspired slots, feeling tied and light headed means that you are not concentrating as you should be and with money at stake and decisions that need to be made that is clearly a problem.

It might mean you ask for another card in blackjack and up going bust, or stick an extra chip or two down on the roulette table that wasn’t in your budget.

So clearly, the importance of staying hydrated when gaming cannot be underestimated, and it’s so easy. When you’re out and about, carry a bottle of water, or sitting at home, have a glass available. That way you will know that you can avoid any discomfort and stay focused on the game in hand, monitoring other players if you need to and checking your budgets.

So, there you have it. Staying hydrated is vital to your everyday life, after exercise or just throughout the day, it is important that you drink water to keep your body refreshed and healthy. Therefore, it is inevitably significant that you do so during any time you spend gaming. Failure to do so will negatively impact your concentration levels, how you are focused on making a decision and your ability to play. So, drink that water, stay hydrated and give yourself the best chance possible to win!
