Posted by Nvncible1, Wed Dec-31-14 10:04 PM
I'm not into gambling. I was dragged here . But imma be at this casino hotel for the next couple days.

Everything pretty much comped. Free money .


How can i walk outta here with some strange change?

I don't know how to play anything. Nothing. So mainly I'd only be doing slots. If anything.

Happy new year.
12688297, contrary to belief, play the slot machine that recently hit

12688315, progressive slots mean you playing against the rest of their network
Posted by PoppaGeorge, Thu Jan-01-15 12:49 AM
Not just people in that casino, or against others in that chain of properties...

EVERYONE that's playing on that specific progressive network (progressives are all centrally controlled by whomever the vendor is for that particular game is i.e WMS, Bally, Konami, etc...). You play against everyone that plays it globally.

12688316, Roulette is a game you can build money on

don't play a single number straight up, play corners, rows and shit. If you hit, you don't get as much money, but you get decent odds on it.

12688325, The trick is "become the casino"
Posted by handle, Thu Jan-01-15 04:40 AM
Casinos have the advantage in every single game - so if you're not the casino you'll likely not win.

So play for "fun" and only lose an amount you can afford to lose.

And if you are UP then the strategy is to quit while up.

play roulette. nice & easy. if you bet on either red or black you got a 50/50 chance of winning some money

does it really matter?

12688393, it's less than 50/50
Posted by debo40oz, Thu Jan-01-15 01:01 PM
Because of the green 0 and 00. But still not super bad odds
12688381, roulette is the worst game you can play.
Posted by LeroyBumpkin, Thu Jan-01-15 11:57 AM
THE worst.

Stick to blackjack.
12688382, what's better then the 50/50 odds you get betting red or blk on roulette
Posted by Binlahab, Thu Jan-01-15 12:02 PM
There are none

12688391, There's also the green 0 and 00
Posted by PimpTrickGangstaClik, Thu Jan-01-15 12:54 PM
Definitely not 50/50 odds.
These spots give roulette one of the biggest house edges in the casino
12688394, I believe the odds are 37:1 inside.
Posted by LeroyBumpkin, Thu Jan-01-15 01:03 PM
And the house has a huge edge there.

Of course there are variations of bets to play on those numbers that increase your odds, but you're better off playing blackjack or craps.
12688383, how you figure? bet black & red, odd & even and then once
Posted by BigJazz, Thu Jan-01-15 12:03 PM
you've stacked a good amount of their money, you go inside and bet on the numbers. hit just one and then bounce while you're way ahead...

12688390, always bet on black (c)

12688454, Don't gamble on anything but Poker or Sportsbetting
Posted by TheStandard, Thu Jan-01-15 06:45 PM
They're the only 2 things you can win at unless you can card count in black jack

or you can spend hours figuring out a bias in the roulette wheel

Craps: The most fun to play but one of the harder games to figure out. Lots of different bets you can make. You don't have to play on every dice roll and you don't have to leave the table unless someone else wants to jump in. Probably the best place to score some free drinks too.

BlackJack: My personal favorite. You need to know the rules before jumping in on this one. If you got 2 other people at the table that knows how to fucking play you can beat the dealer a lot. If you are in Vegas, go to old las vegas strip and hit up the old casinos. They got cheap opening bets and you learn how to play.

Roulette: Man fuck this game. Best odds my ass. I think this might be the most rigged piece of shit on the whole casino floor. Its simple as hell and that is how they get you.

Slots: Hey slots are what I call "extra cash" games. If you didn't blow all your money by now you should take whatever you got left from losing and play slots with it. I don't mean go to the ATM and take out more money. I mean take your cab fare or your buffet money and put it in the slots. You might get lucky! I won $250 bucks on slots. Most money I ever won in a casino.

Poker: I've been playing poker online and on some apps but never in real life. This game is versus other people as opposed to the casino itself. If you got people who are good at your table you are fucked. If you are playing with a bunch of newbies and you know how to play you will clean up.

12688511, craps. pass line + odds is the best bet in any casino

12688528, Yep absolute fact
Posted by josephmurf2384, Fri Jan-02-15 12:21 AM
All though I suck at craps.
12688524, slots have horrible odds no matter what
Posted by sndesai1, Fri Jan-02-15 12:00 AM
roulette has some of the worst odds for a table game
craps has some of the best

there is no game where the casino doesn't have an advantage (unless it is a game where you are strictly playing against the other participants)

just pick an amount you're willing to lose, find a game you enjoy, and hope that the variance that occurs over small samples ends up making you a winner
12688570, Slots must pay out between 75 and 98% of the money they bring in
Posted by John Forte, Fri Jan-02-15 09:41 AM
It's pure chance, but they pay out a lot.
12688558, I have a personal strategy for maximizing my time at the table
Posted by Cocobrotha2, Fri Jan-02-15 09:05 AM
I'm not trying to break the bank... I'm just trying to maximize my fun while minimizing my losses.

So I generally stick to craps and blackjack and I play with 10 times the table minimum. If I bet conservatively, I can usually string things out for an hour or two, which is a reasonable amount for me to risk, particularly if the table minimums are relatively low.

I also set an upper limit of double my money. I've occasionally hit my goal but I've rarely actually walked away with double my money for a bunch of reasons but I think you need to have discipline when you're up.

Some people say you need to really push your luck when you're winning but I think if you can set a modest goal that you can hit consistently, you're more likely to come out ahead.

The more you play, the more likely you'll lose so you need something to tell yourself to get up and out of the casino with your profit.
