Get Knowledge

Before you go into a casino you should gather every piece of information possible and understand it. Order gambling books, read magazines (there are even magazines on particular games). Surf the internet for more information. Just get smart and professional on a subject. Never handle anything as a beginner (so others might even see and take advantage of it). Always handle everything like a pro. It’s as easy as this.

Watch Others

Watch others playing the game you are interested in first to gain some insights. Maybe you can notice some professional gamblers at the table and watch them for a while to see when and where they are betting. Always feel free to ask the dealers. They are getting paid for answering your questions in a polite way. Get information on current table limits and all the things important for your game. At the tables where it is allowed to talk with other players, ask them too if you like.
There are online casinos which provide public multiplayer games where you can chat with others as well

Play in the quiet hours

Start to play in the casinos quite times. The limits are lower, you have more time to ask casino personnel and to get more familiar with everything

Start Small

You should start with small bets while learning and gaining experience. Choose the lowest-stake tables and bet as little as you are able to. After having won some wagers move up in scale and on to the more expensive tables.
