Smart & Fun Gambling | Bonus bets (or side bets) are never your friend. No matter how big the jackpot or returns are with side bets, they rarely pay out anywhere near actual odds. That said, these side bets can be a fun way to spend some singles.

Winning Strategies | I don’t think this will shock any of you. Every table game has a house advantage. Numerous mechanisms are used to build this house edge. By now, most players are probably used to so many of these methods they barely notice them.

Winning Strategies | I’ve been very honest about the odds of long-term winning while gambling. With the rare exception of some tough to find video poker games and/or the ability to count in blackjack, you’re simply not going to win in the long term.

Winning Strategies | The one and only exception is video poker, where there still remain some full-pay machines that pay over 100%. However, as most of these are at too low of a denomination to really do harm to the casino.

Sticking on dealer 6 no sure tactic playing blackjack

Winning Strategies | Why does a good blackjack player stick on “bustable” hands against a dealer’s 6? The quick answer is that with a 6 upcard, the dealer is likely to bust. But, the dealer’s bust rate is only 42%, which means 58% of the time, he won’t bust.

posted on April 30, 2013 by

Smart & Fun Gambling | Video poker has a very small house edge so casinos treat the game appropriately with low players club points. Every casino players club offers points and credits differently so it’s smart to check the rules in advance of a trip.

Winning Strategies | One of the most common player errors is not doubling on soft hands when they should. Instead, they chose to pay blackjack at 6-to-5 and take a bit out of the bankroll of the good and bad player alike.
