Is craps your game? Are you a champ at the roulette wheel? Can you sit for hours at a poker table? Do you prefer the more straightforward rules of Blackjack? Or do you prefer to go one on one with the slots? Whatever your choice, if you make your way to Vegas, Atlantic City or anywhere gambling is legal, you should know how to navigate a casino and its games. Take this quiz to see if you're a big winner or if you'll go home empty-handed.

Casino games and gamblers have their own terminology when it comes to playing. The longer you spend time in a casino the bigger the likelihood you'll pick casino slang up and be just one the patrons attempting to make a few bucks. While it may not make you a better gambler, at least you'll be well informed and LOOK like you know what you're doing!

So, sit back, relax and get ready for that trip to Sin City by answering these fun but challenging questions on terms having to do with gambling and casinos! By playing a Women.com quiz, you will not only enjoy yourself, but you'll work your mind out too! You may even be exposing it to new things and while you probably know all the answers here—we believe you're a trivia whiz, after all—there is a chance you may learn something you DIDN'T know. Everyone can use a little extra knowledge, don't you think? We sure do! Good luck!
