Playing Blackjack Correctly

26 May 2020
Some interesting comments can be made by other players at the blackjack tables. All of the following I have heard or seen written about by “experts” at the game. Which ones are right? Which ones are wrong? Here are some: • “Never hit your twelve against the dealer’s two!” • “If you are on third base you ... (read more)
 

Do You Need a Casino Host?

19 May 2020
I am guessing that if you are a high-roller you probably have a host that sets up your trips, comps you the room and meals, sets up theater and sporting events tickets and in other ways takes proper care of you and yours. Other than maybe a present at holiday times, you do not have to pay the host anything. ... (read more)
 

Slots Through Time

12 May 2020
In 1984, known as the George Orwell year, slot machine revenues outperformed table games for the first time. In both Las Vegas and Atlantic City a new king of games came to the fore. Slots now account for anywhere between 65 and 90 percent of casino revenue. Depending on where you play, you might find table games shoved away to make room for more slots. ... (read more)
 

The 30-Year Reflection

5 May 2020
I am now in my 30th year of casino writing and in my 31st year of casino playing. Those are long periods of time. So much good – and some bad – has happened to me in that time. I have met people I really respect. I grant the Captain a tip of my hat and a touch of my heart for teaching me just about everything. ... (read more)
 

Readers Write

28 April 2020
From Marilyn: I enjoy your column daily and always learn something from the experiences you write about. This particular article about “don’t be a pig” is something I often see during my visits to the casino. Being a middle of the road slots player, I earn my fair share of comps. Since I don’t live near ... (read more)
 

The Fun of it All

21 April 2020
Last week I went through some of the irritations that casino players can experience with both dealers and other casino players. Don’t frown. This week let me share with you some of the joys of playing casino games and being in casino hotels and in a casino venue. You go to a blackjack table and the very first hand you get is a blackjack. ... (read more)
 

Irritations

14 April 2020
I am irritated by dealers who do not know the house edges of their games. Craps dealers should be able to tell players clearly and concisely what edges they face when they make certain bets – if the players ask them that is. How hard is it for blackjack dealers to know the correct basic strategy for the ... (read more)
 

Penny Pinching at Slots

7 April 2020
Unless a slot player wins a monstrous million or multi-million-dollar slot jackpot, he or she is destined for long-term losses. The machines are not programmed to create long-term winners; if they did the casinos couldn’t survive. You know that and I know that. Still, there are better and worse machines to play and better and worse ways to play them. ... (read more)
 

Savor the Win!

31 March 2020
Good and bad things can happen to those of us who play casino games. It is tough to challenge the mighty casinos with their house edges and the speeds of their games. We players are relying on luck to win; the casinos are relying on math. We all know how those contests eventually turn out. One of the worst scenarios has probably happened to just about all casino players. ... (read more)
