22 March 2023
Has this ever happened to you? You're playing one of your favorite machines. A stranger (or a friend) sits down and starts playing the identical machine next to you.

Reduce the House Edge at Roulette

19 March 2023
QUESTION: You've written that six-deck blackjack games can be better than one-deck games if there are better rules on the six-deck game.I was wondering if the same might be true in roulette.

15 March 2023
Just when you thought it was safe to ga back in the water, here's another installment of my rebuttal to an article I found giving one author's opinions about why he thinks slots are not random.

Let me start with my own disclaimer: Unless I state otherwise, my comments refer to the RNG-based (Class III) slots that you find in Nevada, Atlantic City, Tunica, etc., and some tribal more
