Dividing match play

30 July 2016
From Richard, Hi Stickman, I have two quick questions. First, I have a $100 match play from a casino. Is it better to use the match play at once for $100 or use them at $25 each? Thanks Second, I read all of Frank's books about craps. I know he talks about landing the dice about 5 inches from the ... (read more)
 

The 6 and 8 versus the 7

9 July 2016
From Olivia, Hi Stickman, I shoot craps quite a lot, but I tend to be “mathematically challenged” or so it seems! I understand that on average you will roll a 7 more than any other number. I’ve seen the “list” posted many, many times. But, if you take, let’s say, the 6 and 8 "together" on the dice, when ... (read more)
 

Playing 9/6 Jacks or Better video poker

18 June 2016
From Eric, Stickman I gamble solely in Las Vegas four or more times a year. I am a top-tier player at one of the major casino chains in Las Vegas. I gamble only at casinos in this chain, but I do gamble both on and off the Strip at this casino chain. I play craps (where I set the dice), blackjack and video poker (mostly Bonus Poker) for points to achieve my tier score rating. ... (read more)
 

Can I win at craps with a betting system?

28 May 2016
Periodically, people ask me about craps betting systems. Almost all of them rely on the premise that certain numbers are due because they haven’t appeared for a while. I normally tell them that in a random game, you cannot beat the math of the game. The house edge is the house edge. In the long term, you will lose the amount of money played times the house edge. ... (read more)
 

How often should I complete certain hands?

7 May 2016
Those who have played any reasonable amount of video poker have noticed instances where they do not complete any four-of-a-kind hands when three of the quad are dealt, or complete any flushes when four are dealt, or any straights when four are dealt. At times it seems the machines may be rigged because time ... (read more)
 

Playing simplified video poker strategy

16 April 2016
Many readers are aware of the paybacks of popular video poker games. For example, full-pay Jacks or Better returns 99.54%, full-pay Bonus Poker returns 99.16%, full-pay Double Bonus Poker returns 100.17%, and full-pay Double-Double Bonus Poker returns 98.98%. These returns are calculated based on what is ... (read more)
 

Going on tilt

26 March 2016
It is early morning – my favorite time in a casino. There are very few people around so I have my choice of games. Also, with the dearth of gamblers, very little smoke and/or smokers are around. It is true what they say; there is nothing worse than a former smoker, and that's me. I smoked a pack and a half of Camel straights each day for several years. ... (read more)
 

Finding a lucky machine

5 March 2016
Everyone who has played video poker (or any casino game for that matter) understands that there are streaks. Streaks can be fun and exciting, if they are hot streaks, or they can be disastrous and crushing, if they are losing streaks. What players call "luck" is nothing more than the fluctuations of a random game exerting influence at the current moment. ... (read more)
 

Those slot club promotions

13 February 2016
The first slot clubs were introduced to generate loyalty for the casino from its patrons. The popularity of slot clubs grew exponentially. Now, virtually every casino in the U.S. has some form of slot club. Most of them are affiliated with other casinos within the same casino conglomerate, so benefits earned in one casino can be enjoyed at another casino within the same group. ... (read more)
