Should you use a player's card?

3 December 2016
Some of my friends and acquaintances refuse to use a casino player’s card while playing video poker.

Those don't bets at craps

12 November 2016
Hi Stickman, I have a quick question – can I make a don’t pass bet after a come-out roll? ~ Jack Hi Jack, First off, rarely have I played don’t bets while at the craps table.

High return video poker with no slot points

The 5-Count versus seven-roll betting

20 August 2016
From Franny, I came across an article that states waiting seven rolls before betting is 'similar' to the 5-Count with similar results. Yet it is different.
