Tell me a place where an 18 year old can play roulette, then yeah, I play roulette.
There's a good excuse for 18 year olds not to play casino games.... they aren't at the minimum legal age.
The rest of us, mostly, would be a lot better served using the same excuse if we had it.
The only casino game you stand a middling chance of winning at over the long haul (besides those rare events I described in my last post involving roulette) is blackjack. But it takes thousands of hands to learn the game well enough to have a hope of winning at it..... thousands more of losing a lot before you're likely to develop an understanding that sidesteps what the 'experts' on every table will tell you about how to win. Then you have to put up with being at a table most of the time with a lot of people who think it's funny to ask if they can double down on a blackjack, who flip verbal dung at the dealer, who generally just aren't the sort of people you take joy at being around unless you're willing to work at that, also.
Get yourself a Millenium Gamepack at the walmart store, comp usa, office depot, the one with animated blackjack on it..... and play until you can win enough to break even. That's what I'd suggest if I was making suggestions, which I ain't, and I'd follow it with a suggestion that you stay the hell out of any casino until you can win on the computer.
Just my old gambler viewpoint talking.
