Our mega-shot at progressives

Our mega-shot at progressives

posted on August 22, 2017 by

Crazy for Keno | Last week we discussed playing all the progressives, from 5 through 9 spots in MegaKeno. However, sometimes due to a more restricted gaming budget or a feeling that the progressive is not high enough for a particular number of spots, you may choose to play only for some but not all.

Poker by George | You have probably heard the expression, “He did it on a whim…”  It’s an impulse or notion that may suddenly come to mind. On occasion, it can happen to any of us, even while seated at the poker table. So, a “whimmer” is a player who makes a sudden decision that may well be contrary to his normal mode of playing his hand in such a situation.

Equivalent on my scale

Winning Strategies | A mathematical term “equivalent” has been thrown around in the news a lot this week. My take has been that many who have used it don’t really know what it means. My comments and this column, to be clear, are not political. This is strictly about how certain terms can begin to take on meanings when used too commonly.

Poker by George | Playing Texas hold’em, each player is dealt two downcards – the two cards in the hole. Only you can decide whether to fold or invest your money (chips) in those two cards – to call or make a raise. You are in complete control.
