Do Players Have Fun? Part II

30 January 2021
CINDY: Frank Scoblete shared his newest column with us. He tried to answer the question of whether or not casino players have fun when they go. At first that sounds weird – obviously they have fun or why would they go? – but when you think of it the question is not so weird. If yes, why yes; if no, why do they come back, most of them quite a lot. ... (read more)
 

Casino comps are not free

14 November 2020
ABBY: Getting comps is a big deal for many players. People think the casino is giving them free stuff. CINDY: I think players actually believe that comps are free and they do not have to be paid for. I have heard folks brag about the comps they get as if the casino just likes them enough to give them a free room, a free meal, a show or whatever. ... (read more)
 

Managing Your Money

19 September 2020
CINDY: Everyone who plays casino games knows that sooner or later the casino will beat them unless they have extraordinary luck and win a giant jackpot at slots. That is not in the cards for just about all players. So long-term most players will be losers. That is the math, the truth, the facts, and the expectation. ... (read more)
 

Wear Your Masks

8 August 2020
CINDY: We’ve been back to the casinos a few times since they have reopened. It’s still fun but the atmosphere is somewhat different. You have masks and most players try to stay a social distance from one another if that is possible. ABBY: The hustling and jostling is largely over from what we have experienced. ... (read more)
 

The new world of casinos

13 June 2020
ABBY: I think for aficionados of casino play the past few months have been very difficult. It has for me and that is for sure. I truly miss going to the casinos and since the epidemic I have not really ventured out very much. CINDY: I didn’t realize how much of our leisure time was taken up with playing in the casinos. ...

Treat it as a game

21 March 2020
ABBY: For the first time in three decades we have been cancelled from one of our reservations at one of our favorite casinos. I don’t think we ever cancelled our casino time. CINDY: Actually we didn’t do it; it was that nasty coronavirus that caused our casino to close its doors until the pandemic abates. ... (read more)
 

Are you giving your money away at the casino?

15 February 2020
ABBY: Is it me or are there a lot of people, including people who write about casino playing, that are off the wall with their methods of play and opinions about how the games are structured? CINDY: Yes, I am not sure why either. The math of the games is clear. It isn’t hard to know what and how the casinos get their edges. ... (read more)
 

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)
