Should You Change Your Betting Strategy in Craps?

Just about every craps player has a favorite way to play. Some play the percentages and make sure they take the free odds offered when you back pass or come bets with additional bets.

Are Progressive Jackpots A Better Bet in Video Poker?

Blackjack Changing Strategy As The Game Evolves

Blackjack basic strategy has been around as guide to when to hit, stand, split and double down has been around since the 1950s. It’s well-grounded in the math of the game, and it’s something anyone who’s serious about blackjack should learn. However, the game itself evolves, and when the rules change, so does basic strategy. Take the situation when you’re dealt a pair of 4s in a six-deck game. It’s always been fairly easy to find tables in which you were allowed to double down after splitting the pairs. Let’s say you bet $5 and were dealt 4-4. You could…
