Good Edge or Not?

9 August 2020
QUESTION: Is the field bet a good bet or a bad bet? That 2.78 percent house edge doesn’t look too bad. It’s a lot better than placing 4 or 10 (6.67). It seems viable when you want to cover a lot of numbers.ANSWER: The field is a one-roll bet, which means you have to replenish your wagers a lot more often than on multi-roll bets such as pass or come, don’t pass or don’t come, and the place bets.The effect is that you actually lose more money per rolls on the field than on the worst place bets – 4 or 10.Let’s review the basics of the more

Ask the Slot Expert: Should I come to Las Vegas in late August?

5 August 2020
Question: I had to cancel my March LV vacation, casinos closed.
