Deciding when to leave the casino

7 December 2019
ABBY: “Always leave when you’re ahead.” That might be the most famous saying or advice given by players and writers about casino games. But does it make any sense? Think about it clearly. CINDY: That advice has superficial logic to it but it can’t stand up under scrutiny. You go to a table game or a ... (read more)
 

Common casino mistakes

19 October 2019
ABBY: “Mistakes, I’ve made a few….” CINDY: Don’t sing the song, please, Mr. Sinatra, because we have all made mistakes in playing casino games. I wish we were all perfect, but then again, you can’t be perfect playing in the casino when the house has the edge on the bets. That's a given for all of us who enjoy the casino life. ...

Tackling those slot machines

31 August 2019
ABBY: I think our biggest sin as casino gamblers is to play the slots exclusively. Why is that so? Because of those house edges of 10% or more on some machines, the chances of even being close to the casino in a given period of time are remote. Should slots be your only game? Don’t you agree? CINDY: Yes, I ... (read more)
 

The patterns of the games

13 July 2019

ABBY: If you take even a superficial look at social media, you can see how adamant and obnoxious some people can be. ... (read more)
 

Talking craps

6 April 2019
CINDY: What game is usually held up as the most exciting in the casino? ABBY: Craps. Without question. CINDY: Is it really though? Or is this just hype? ABBY: It goes two ways. At times you can be jumping out of your own skin, but at other times you want to curl up and cry. So the highs can be really high, but the lows can be low if you don’t play the game properly. ...

The Royal Flushes talk blackjack

16 February 2019
CINDY: The very first game I ever played in a casino was blackjack. This was at Resorts in Atlantic City. It was also my first time in a casino and I was so excited. I had no idea of the true strategy for blackjack. I just played by my gut. It was a five-dollar game and the table was full. I got a lot of blackjacks that morning and I thought the game was so easy. ... (read more)
