The exception is blackjack. There the odds change on every hand as cards are dealt and removed from play until the next shuffle. Not long ago, I received an email from a…

Instead of traditional slot reels, Beat Square has 16 buttons arranged in a 4-by-4 grid. Konami has a selection of modern, rhythmic music, and when you make your bet, buttons on the grid light up in time to the music. Your task is to hit the buttons as they light up…
