Winning Strategies | I’ve been going to the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) for the past 15 years or so. Some years there have been more table games to see, some years less. This is from a pure quantity perspective, not quality. This year had to be the overall worst in terms of both.

Winning Strategies | Welcome to the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2017! There is little doubt my bread and butter (video poker and table games) is not what most people are talking about this year. I’m guessing most of the talk will once again be about skill-based gaming.

Winning Strategies | When people ask me which games have the highest paybacks in the casino, I generally answer blackjack and video poker. Ultimate Texas Hold’em is not far behind, but with a much larger average wager size, it is not completely fair to put it in the same category.

Winning Strategies | Over the years when talking to friends, I have flippantly remarked how I could sit at a $5 blackjack table with $100 and have it last for a week. The point I’m trying to make is, by using the right strategy, the choice to play in a casino as a form of entertainment does not have to be a costly one.
