Straight Up: 
Three Times in A Row


My "Psychic" Slot Win


 In Roulette, it's easy to make a few bucks betting even money.  But as the player begins to seek higher rewards, it becomes much more difficult.  Inside odds of 2-to-1, 8-to-1, 17-to-1 and finally 35-to-1 wear out and grind down even the biggest bankrolls.  Roulette, it is fair to say, "ain't the easiest game in the casino." 

     I was playing during what must have been The Beau Rivage graveyard shift.  Even for a weekday night it seemed particularly quiet.  No big action at the Craps tables.  No high rollers working at the Blackjack tables either.  But that was certainly not true for the Roulette table.  That's where I was; playing Roulette.

 A gorgeous brunette walked over and dropped a twenty dollar bill in front of the croupier.  She seemed to be a bit nervous, but that's not unusual for first-time gamblers.  The croupier, working alone, made her change in four casino five-dollar chips, per her instructions.  She then put three of the four chips into her purse, and placed the remaining chip straight up on number thirty-six.  It was a long-odds bet (35 to 1) and probably her last before she returned to whatever city the next morning.  But as luck would have it's way..

I can only tell you that the "voice" came through very loud and very clear... and for once, I listened.

I was playing in Biloxi, Mississippi, at the famous Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino.
It wasn't my first time at the "Beau," and it sure won't be my last. It was a typical morning. Players were drinking coffee instead of booze, and the dominant sound was the clean-up crew's vacuum cleaners, rather than the loud buzzers and bells of slot machines.
The Beau Rivage has great casino games, especially Slot machines and slots. My husband, Michael, was in line at the Player Card desk, inquiring about comps and such, and I was just looking around when it happened. "It" was a voice. A comment. A psychic instruction to play a certain machine.
And I know what you're thinking... Am I a nut-job? A loon, running from casino to casino trying to capitalize on imaginary "voices?" I can honestly tell you that I am none of those things. While I may have had a premonition or two in my life, what happen to me was unique, and unfortunately, not to be repeated. I was "told" what machine to play, and I followed this information as if I was following orders in the army.
"Where are you going?" asked my husband.

Taking Care of Yourself
While at The Casino

I'm sure we all know the feeling - that this one last go will win you back all your money, that you're on a streak you can't possibly lose out on... It's common, but unfortunately if you're in the middle of Vegas, there's a chance that's happening inside someone's head roughly every thirty seconds. Responsible gamblers are often the ones that walk away with their bank balances looking healthier than they did when they walked in, or at least not as unhealthy as some.

First off, if you're taking a card into the casino - and often that's a lot easier, especially if you're on holiday and don't want to leave it in the hotel room - make sure you're using a card with a limit, preferably one with a set amount of money on it that has no link whatsoever to your main bank account. That way, when you're done - you're done. This works well with all casinos, from luxury joints in Vegas right the way home to the games sitting on your laptop..

      "Ms. Craps" to You. 
 by Marsha Hunt Flanders © 2010.
On May 23, 2009, Patricia Demauro, a grandma from New Jersey beat trillion-to-one odds by throwing a 4 hour, 18 minute lucky streak at the Borgata in Atlantic City.  With only a $100. buy-in, Patricia rolled 154 times before crapping out.  The hotel broke out the champagne after her stupendous feat.  Demauro eclipsed the former record of an Hawaiian man named Fujitake back in 1989.  It is unknown how much money she made during the roll, but you can well imaging the side bettors had a field day.  read on
Roulette Wheel Bias
by Jake Earl

It is the dream of every gambler to have a system; a system that allows him to take a casino for a considerable amount of money.  For some people, it was no dream…

Albert R. Hibbs was a noted mathematician.  In 1949, he and fellow graduate student Roy Walford, took time away from school and went to Nevada.  Their aim was to study the roulette wheel bias of Las Vegas and Reno casinos, then exploit that mathematical “edge” and win big.  They were said to have made over $42,000. in their schemes.   The idea of a biased wheel is not new.

Catch a Break

It is the business of all casinos to take your money,
and generally, they do it very well.

The big casinos supply free drinks, reduced (or free) room rates, show tickets, etc., to entice the player to continue to gamble.  The obvious reason is the house edge, which varies greatly from game to game.  The house edge is the reason Steve Wynn can build another casino; why The Bellagio can change their carpet every year; and why Indians learn the casino business so quickly.  Casinos make money. Yet in this universe of “We ‘gotcha” there lies a precious few methods in which the player can turn the cards to his advantage.    read on

Blackjack is a popular game in a casino because the odds are good.

Blackjack Mistakes
It’s human nature to assume we’re pretty good in the casinos at what we do.  Accordingly, many people sit down at a blackjack table and assume their losses are due to bad luck, rather than their own bad play.  ...more
