Sports Betting and Parlays

There are times sports bettors think they've zeroed in on multiple winners and are tempted to bet parlays -- betting multiple teams, with all required to win for the bettor to collect. The temptation is in the payoffs. Let's use parlays on point-spread bets as an example. Point-spread bets or over/unders pay at even-money, minus the 10 percent vigorish. Win three $11 point spread bets, and you win a total of $30. What if you made just one $10 bet on a three-team parlay instead? Odds may vary from book to book, but at the Nevada books that are the…

Brush Up on Your Blackjack Before Visiting Tunica

Twenty-one—a number that fills us with adventure and hope. Of all the traditional games of chance, blackjack enjoys a special place in our hearts! It’s the one we learned first, the game we played for nickels with family or at sleepovers. It’s like an old friend tucked into a deck of cards. Even now, among the gorgeous racket of a casino floor, the blackjack table becomes an oasis of familiarity. But while sleepover blackjack and casino blackjack share a lot in common, there are some key differences worth remembering. If you’re dreaming about green felt and the exhilarating swoosh of…

Should I Hit on 16 in Blackjack?

Many blackjack players have quirks where they deviate from basic strategy. I recently shared a table at one who would not sit at 16 under any circumstances. That's a bad play whenever the dealer shows a 7 or higher, but it's not that rare. What made this latest player really unusual is that his phobia for hitting 16 extended to soft 16 -- hands such as Ace-5 or Ace-3-2 where the Ace is counted as 11. "At least I'm still in the game," he said when other players tried to show him the light. "Let the dealer take a chance…

What Brings You Good Luck in the Casino?

I was playing video poker and noticed that anytime the woman next to me had three of a kind on an initial deal, she'd pause, stand up, take a deep breath, then sit and make her draw. I finally mentioned it, and she said, "I guess it's superstition. I know it doesn't really help, but somehow it feels right to me if I have a chance at four of a kind or a royal." I followed up with a group of slot players. Most said they have no superstitions, but a few have things that make them feel luckier. WANDA:…
