Stories From The Tunica Mississippi Casinos Floor

From time to time, readers send me stories about unusual things that have happened to them in casinos. I always find them fun to read, and I hope you will, too. Gordon: My dad always splits 10s if the dealer has a 6 up. You know and I know he has a bigger edge if he just plays his 20, but he’s my 75-year-old dad and I’m never going to be able to convince him of that. One day we were playing, and he split his 10s against a 6 and wound up with a 14 and 15. The dealer…

How To Choose A Video Blackjack Machine

One thing I’ve warned blackjack players about is games that pay less than the standard 3-2 on blackjacks. If you play video blackjack, you have to be extra watchful, as one reader learned. “You have warned against playing blackjack when blackjacks pay only 6-5 because that increases the house edge,” he wrote in an email. “I assume that means you’d also warn against playing on machines where blackjack pays even money. What does that do to the house edge? “I ask because I was playing on a dollar machine that had video poker, video keno, some slot games and video…

Should You Place A Fortune Bet In Pai Gow?

Pai-gow poker is known as an even-keel, extended play kind of game. The Fortune Pai-Gow side bet injects a little excitement for jackpot hunters, including a big payoff of 5,000-1 on a seven-card straight flush that does not include the joker. That’s about a 4.8 million-to-1 shot, but hey, we can dream. A reader’s email asked about the house edge, and whether the Fortune bet was worth making. That depends partly on how many players are at the table. The game carries an “envy bonus,” meaning that when someone wins big, other players get something extra, too. There are several…
