Blackjack blues

20 April 2019
From Mike, My wife and I go to the casino at the same time, play at the same $5 blackjack table for the same amount of time. We both use basic strategy but I also use the Speed Count and tell her what to do. She also sometimes bets on hunches – and wins. Last year, 2018, we were at the casinos and played about 150 times each. ... (read more)
 

Playable video poker

30 March 2019
Hi Jerry, In reading your article about 8/5 Jacks or Better compared to 9/6, the problem is it is almost impossible to find 9/6 anymore. The real question is how low do we go in payback percentage before it is not reasonable to play at all? I guess it's similar to the blackjack question. What rules would cause us to stop playing? The casinos found it with 6:5 blackjack payoffs. ... (read more)
 

Hop bets at craps

16 March 2019
Stickman, I’ve seen many articles discussing house advantages on craps and how bad hop bets are. I don’t think I’ve ever seen what the house advantage is on hopping sevens, however. I am probably wrong but it seems like it would be low. If you bet all three combos for $1 each and hit one, it pays $15. ... (read more)
 

Odds bets at craps

2 March 2019
Hello Jerry, Enjoy the craps articles by you, Frank and others on Casino City Times. Have read many of Frank's books. I have played craps for many years, 5 count, dice influence (at least try!) and all sorts of other ways of try to get ahead. The one thing that still gets and puzzles me is how adding odds ...

Still more on pass versus place betting

9 February 2019
I received a follow-up question to an article about pass/come bets vs. placing the number after the point is established. Jerry, Thanks for replying. One other question about this play. If I use the pass line for my initial bet, then I would have the benefit of the higher probability of a win on the come-out roll. ... (read more)
 

More on come vs. place bets

26 January 2019
Jerry, I’ve always played craps betting on the pass line with full odds and three numbers using the come, also taking full odds. On a recent visit to Las Vegas, a stickman suggested I try not playing the come but just placing the same amount of money bet on each of three numbers when they were thrown, as if I had three come bets. ...

The 6/8 progression

12 January 2019
Jerry - I’ve been playing a slow negative progression only playing the 6 and 8 in craps and seem to be doing quite well with it. Basically, I am seeking a constant profit with each winning roll of the dice. My theory works like this: Level 1: 24 on 6 and 8, if lose move up to 60 each, if lose again move up to 180. ...

Playing 8/5 Jacks or Better

15 December 2018
The full-pay 9/6 (9-for-1 for a full house and 6-for-1 for a flush) Jacks or Better video poker game used to be readily available. Not so any more. In many casinos the best game that can be found on the main casino floor is 8/5 Jacks or Better. Let’s look at what playing this reduced pay game does to the player. ... (read more)
 

Ah, that royal flush!

24 November 2018
One of the reasons for the popularity of video poker is it generally has a higher payback – sometimes even more than 100% for a skilled player – than slot machines. Regardless of which video poker game you play, achieving the long-term payback percentage is dependent on getting your fair share of “natural” (those without the aid of a wild card) royal flushes. ...
