Some tips on tipping

16 July 2019
I grew up in Brooklyn, where the size of a man’s tip told you something important about that man. All the big shots tipped like crazy. If you saw the hilarious movie My Cousin Vinny, you know that when in doubt, which was most times, Vinny tipped. He tipped waiters, waitresses and even prison guards. ... (read more)
 

Summing it up

9 July 2019
Time goes fast, doesn’t it? My nephew has a great way to explain why the older you get, the faster it goes. He says it is the equivalent of miles per hour. When you are seven years old, you are going a mere seven miles-per-hour which is relatively slow, but when you are 70 years old, well then my friend, your speed is 70 miles per hour. ...

A bigger bucket redux

2 July 2019
In 1991 (or thereabouts) my wife the Beautiful AP wrote an article titled “A Bigger Bucket.” I thought it captured the real reason people played slots, at least symbolically. Now, I know players all have various reasons for risking their hard-earned money on machines programmed to take that money and, ... (read more)
 

Going to war against casino war

25 June 2019
It was called War, and you probably played a version of this as a kid, or in a bar to determine who bought the next drink. Hopefully you weren’t a kid in the bar. It’s really just simple, as in you get one card, he gets one card, and whoever has the highest card gets the free drink. Or if there is a tie, you go to war. ... (read more)
 

The power of slots

18 June 2019
Casino gambling or racinos are in over 80% of the United States. They are in Canada and throughout Europe and the Middle East. Casino gambling is almost as popular with the human race as warfare. Casinos would never have spread like wildfire had it not been for the slot machines. There just aren’t enough ... (read more)
 

She quit

11 June 2019
Most readers enjoy reading uplifting stories about slot machines and slot players. I understand this but every once in a while we have to look at the major mistakes some slot players make that not only ruins their favorite pastime but ultimately might cause some of them to give up playing the machines altogether. ...

What I've learned

4 June 2019
About the following: I didn’t jot down the statistics because this reflection happened after many years of experiencing casino gamblers in their element – the casinos. So my opinion might be off a little here or there. But I think I am right – or mostly right – since it’s been 30 years of seeing this loud and clear. ... (read more)
 

The bets of roulette

28 May 2019
Last week I discussed the two basic roulette games found throughout the world, the American double-zero game (0, 00) and the European single-zero game (0). The overall house edge for almost every bet at the American game is 5.26%, and it is 2.7% at the European wheel. Like craps, roulette has a host of bets that can be made. ... (read more)
 

The two roulettes

21 May 2019
There are two types of roulette games in the world, the American and the European. Strangely, the American double-zero wheel was created in Europe but is now considered fully domesticated, since it is used far more than any other wheel in the United States. Guess where the European wheel was created. ... (read more)
