John Grochowski - Vanishing video poker

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST

QUESTION: I've been playing video poker a long time, maybe even longer than you have. I remember lining up for machines, 1979, 1980 or so.There used to be a game called 7s Wild. It had the same pay table as Deuces Wild, except with wild 7s. (Make sense, right?)Why do you think the 7s version disappeared? Does it matter which card is wild? Couldn't...

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST

Question: The new Montreign Casino opened in New York on Feb. 8th. I have been calling the slot manager to find out what class their slot machines are, but they haven't gotten back to me.

We face a new year ahead of us, the number 2018. For me, such a date is the equivalent of living in a science fiction novel of my childhood: home computers, smart phones with video and photography, laptops, and a host of other sci-fi technology.And casinos, which at this writing number some 1,000 that are spread out over 50 states. For people...

John Grochowski - Side bets

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST

Side bets at casino table games exist for a couple of reasons. For players, they open the possibility of larger jackpots than standard bets at their games of choice. For casinos, side bets enhance revenues with house edges that are higher than on standard games.Those larger payoffs aren't necessarily lifestyle-changing. The 21 + 3 bet at blackjack...

How do you keep current on all the latest blackjack information? You purchase the latest book on blackjack and you subscribe to some of the blackjack newsletters and magazines that are on the market.

Abby Messick - Casino City's Friday Five: Everything ever edition

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST

Are there any studies on why everything seems to happen at once? (We looked and couldn't find anything appropriately scientific. However, the internet did lead us, as it often does, to some great cat videos, so we consider it time well spent.)As you may have guessed, a lot of things happened at once this week. And they were big things: WSOP's live...

Doesn't it favor the player if the option to bet on 00 is removed and you have a single-zero game instead?ANSWER: When I've written...

Frank Scoblete - Slot machines are perfect employees

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST

It is no exaggeration to say that if slot machines did not exist, there is a markedly good chance that casino gambling would not have spread like wildfire across the United States and Canada.Slots generally cost far less than a dealer, even those slots that are branded and “rented” to the casinos such as Wheel of Fortune or Megabucks or a host of...
