Bern Nightlife: 15 reviews and 8 photos


Berrrrrn --- a lovely place, quaint, rather "village people" feel haha - but WAIT till you enter the Casino and you feel like you stepped into Las Vegas.... nuninuni haha....

So here a few gambling tips for those who want to risk a mint or two ....
>Never split your 10s
>Always split your Aces and 8s, regardless of what card the dealer is showing
>Unless you are counting cards, never take insurance
>You should stand on a hard 13 through 16, but only if the card the dealer is showing is a 6 or lower. If the dealer?s showing card is a 7 through an Ace, you should hit.
>If the dealer is showing a 4, 5 or a 6, you should stand on a hard 12.
>If the dealer?s showing card is a 2 or a 3, or 7 and higher, you should hit a hard 12.
>You should continue to hit until you have at least 17 if the dealer?s up card is a 10.
>You should hit a soft 17 if the dealer?s up card is a 10
The intelligent player makes a series of predetermined bets rather than betting "all over the table"; be consistent in your betting system.

Place red or black bet with corresponding column bets to cover 26 numbers as follows: Black bet covers all eighteen black numbers - also bet Column 3 under #36 for eight (most) red numbers. Red bet covers all 18 red numbers: also bet Column 2 under #35 for eight (most) black numbers.
