Except for the progressives, a 7-spot – especially in downtown Las Vegas – offers the greatest bank for your bet. Based on an 80-cent bet at the California (Island Rate), Fremont (pop 80 rate), The D (Deano rate), and El Cortez (40-cent rate) you can win $14,000 for your 7-spot solid hit.

Since these casinos cater to the lower level bettor through the use of way tickets you can enhance your chances of hitting it big without a huge bankroll. Please keep in mind that the more you spend the better the odds of hitting a solid 7, thus the usual cost per odds tradeoff.

In the past we have mentioned playing 8-spots all as kings to increase your chances; of course the added ways cost you proportionately. But if you are comfortable with a $5 blackjack bet once a minute spending $5 on keno may be comfortable for you.

Let’s try grouping 2-2-1-1-1-1, which gives you 44 seven-spots, an 8 if you wish to play it as well, 8 sixes and 12 fives. Play the 7s at 80 cents a way to win the $14,000 and the other ways at 40 cents or even 20 cents a way if allowed to still get a decent win if you hit 5 or 6 spots solid. Make sure to mark your ticket with the special rate and how much you are playing per each number of spots.

You could also try groupings of 3-2-1-1-1, which gives you an 8, three 7s, four 6s, and five 5s. If 20-cent waysare allowed, try 9 kings (single numbers), 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 giving you a 9, nine 8s, and 36 sevens. Hit a solid 7, you win $3,500 plus a plethora of smaller pays. Hit 7 out of 9, you will get paid for a 7 of 9, several 7 out of 8s, a bunch of 6 out of 8s, the solid 7 and a bunch of 6 out of 7s. A great win.

Hit 8 out of 9 and you have a huge win as you have an 8 out of 9, a solid 8, eight solid 7s and a host of smaller pays. This is truly a power ticket. Playing all the 7s, 8s and 9s at 20 cents a way, your cost is $9.20 per ticket.

As you can see, with the use of ways, and especially kings you can really liven up your chances for a big win. Best of luck to you!
