How To Bet In Craps For Higher Wins

Craps presents so many possibilities that players are continually exploring combinations seeing if they can find a magic formula for profit. One player asked me recently if he could combine place bets with hard ways for some giant-sized wins. “I'm just curious about your thoughts about betting 6 and 8 the hard way while simultaneously betting for 6 to 8 to come out the easy way,” he wrote via email. “Is there any money to be made betting both the easy and hard way at the same time?” Place bets on 6 or 8 and the hardways all are multiroll…

The Bluesman’s Saint

Making the Case for Robert Johnson to Be Named Saint of the Blues After years of watching Mississippi Deltans buy flowers and heart-shaped chocolates in the name of Saint Valentine, and later gather at the nearest pub dressed in their finest green attire in the name of Saint Patrick, I pondered the idea of a Mississippi Delta version of a saint.  Just as millions of people spend time with their friends and families on days named in honor of Saint Valentine and Saint Patrick, so do people from around the world gather throughout Mississippi and listen to music inspired by…

Sons of Anarchy Slot Machines

The video age has enabled game designers to get creative in any number of ways, and that includes the way they use reels and symbols. One of the latest wrinkles is Cluster Power, a new way to play you’ll be seeing in the coming year on Aristocrat Technologies’ Sons of Anarchy slot machine.   With Cluster Power, any three or more adjacent symbols can form a paying combination. Matching symbols can be touching vertically, horizontally, in a line, on the first three reels, in a stack on the last reel alone – as long as you have three or more…

Behind The Scenes Of Your Favorite Machines

Players usually don’t notice, or even have a chance to see, behind-the-scenes procedures that are important to the house. One issue is setting up video poker games. Modern machines offer a wide selection of games, and you touch an icon for the one you want to play. If the casino had to set up the pay table for each individual game, it would eat up a lot of time. And time is money. International Game Technology, which dominates the video poker market, has moved to ease set-up with its All-Star Poker II and All-Star Poker III units. Both come loaded…

W.C. Handy And The Blues

As we’re in the midst of Black History Month, we are reminded of the contributions that African Americans have made to our culture, country and world.  One great offering is the creation of The Blues. The Blues was born in the Mississippi Delta.  This genre is not only about feeling sad or down, but also about overcoming obstacles and enjoying life.  You can experience it in area juke joints and learn about it in Delta museums.  This music was created by local African-Americans who worked tirelessly to make a life in the Delta.  One day in 1903, a band director,…

Hot Streaks, Are They For Real?

When you or I see an unusual streak at the gaming tables or on the machines, it strikes us as defying the odds. But from a casino standpoint, there are thousands of trials every day, millions over time, and unusual streaks are just part of normal probablility. Not long ago, I received a note via email from a craps player who was taken aback when a shooter rolled five sevens in a row. “It would seem to me there has to be a makeup time to get the odds to come out right,” he wrote. “What’s the hidden factor that…
