Betting Progressions In Blackjack

Betting progressions are nothing new at blackjack. Ever since the game was devised, players have been trying to hit on a magic formula for when to increase their bets. Truth be told, there is no magic formula, but a friend of mine decided to give it a go when he spotted a new one in April. He was at a $10 blackjack table, sitting next to a player with a four-step progression/regression. He’d start with a $10 bet, and if he won he would raise to $30. After a second win, he’d drop to $20, but winning a third in…

Best Of Tunica Golf

It’s said that the golf season doesn’t truly begin until the azaleas are in full bloom at Augusta National and a new Master’s champion is wearing the green jacket.  Watching this year’s tournament, it was hard to miss the more than 1,600 azaleas at the iconic par 5, #13 at the end of Amen Corner.  A stark contrast to the azaleas at Augusta was found last week with the water and island green at the par 3, 17th at the Player’s Championship.  Most of us are will never wear the green jacket like Jordan Speith or hoist the Player’s Championship…

A Betting Mistake Pays Off

We all make mistakes in the casino. Blackjack players stand when they meant to hit, slot players forget to check to see all the paylines are active and players at any game sometimes have a brain cramp and make a bet that’s larger than they’d intended. Sometimes the mistake doesn’t hurt us, and sometimes it does. Rarely, if we’re very lucky, it turns into something extraordinary. “Extraordinary” is the word I’d use to describe something a reader saw in a casino, then was kind enough to pass the story on to me. “An older woman is play was playing a…

Is The House Edge Lower In Baccarat?

On most casino games, the house wins more often than the player, and it’s easy for the casino to get an edge on the game. All it has to do is pay players less than the true odds of winning the bet, and random results will lead to profit for the house. Baccarat is different, in that the banker bet wins more often than the player bet. Bet on banker, and you’ll win more often than you lose. So to get an edge on the game, the house has to charge a commission. Usually, the house keeps 5 percent of…

“Big Bang Theory Slots” Give You More Bang For Your Buck

When video slots first came out, it took only a single bonus event to entrance players. Neighbors would stop their play to watch whenever someone went fishing in Reel ’Em In or chose their Chinese foods from the menu in Fortune Cookie. But slot design has become an ever-escalating game of “Can you top this?” Modern slots often have multiple bonus events in the same game, with a mix of free spins and pick’em-style bonus. Take “The Big Bang Theory,” Aristocrat Technologies’ riff on CBS’ megahit sitcom. Three scattered bonus symbols launch a spin of a bonus wheel on the…
