Ins and outs of casino game analysis

Winning Strategies | To date, I don’t think I’ve ever been asked to analyze a game that I found impossible to analyze. Some are more difficult than others. The number of cards dealt plays a significant part in the complexity of the analysis based on the sheer number of combinations.

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.

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.
