Stadium Blackjack: A New Way to Play


Stadium Blackjack: A New Way to Play

By Henry Tamburin PH.D.

Picture 44 electronic player terminals spread out in a stadium-configured arrangement in a casino. A live blackjack dealer stands in front of the stadium facing the players. Players (in this example, up to all 44) make their bets by touching the casino chips across the bottom of the screen on their interactive terminal. As soon as bets are made by the active players and a countdown timer reaches zero indicating that wagering is closed, a live dealer deals a single (common) hand of blackjack to all players, and deals one card to herself.

What is the Iron Cross Strategy in Craps?

By John Grochowski

When craps players put together combination bets, there are two key things to keep in mind:

  • The house edge is a weighted average of the house edges on all bets in the combination.
  • The overall house edge can never be lower than the best individual bet in the combination.


The second point sometimes brings raised eyebrows from veteran craps players who ask, “What about the Iron Cross?”. even if you already know how to play craps, you should keep this strategy in your mind:

The Top 3 Roulette Cheating Habits of Millionaire Gamblers


The Top 3 Roulette Cheating Habits of Millionaire Gamblers

By Samantha Rea

“Do you ever catch people trying to cheat?” As a croupier, I was asked that question every night, on my way home from work. After flagging a cab at four in the morning, the driver would ask if I’d had a good night out. When I told him I’d just finished work in a casino, it was fifty-fifty whether he’d ask me the most I’d ever seen someone win - or whether I’d seen anyone trying to cheat.

How To Play Craps

THE BASIC RULES WHEN PLAYING CRAPS
1. Craps has dozens of wagers available, but the game is structured around the pass line bet.
2. Players bet by placing chips on the pass line on the craps layout. Some other bets require that the dealer move your chips.
3. The pass sequence starts with a comeout roll and the shooter rolls the dice.
4. Pass bettors win if the roll is 7 or 11 and lose if it is 2, 3 or 12. Any other number becomes the point.
5. If the shooter rolls a point number on the comeout, he keeps rolling until either he rolls the same number again to win an even-money payoff, or rolls a 7 to lose.
6. If the shooter makes his point, he keeps rolling with a new comeout. If he doesn’t, he “sevens out,” and the dice rotate to a new shooter

Craps can be as simple as betting on one number and either winning or losing on each roll, or as complex as making a bet, waiting until the shooter rolls a target, or “point” number, then hoping the shooter can roll the same number again. That procedure can go on for any number of rolls.

4 Craps Tips for the Short Bankrolled
By John Grochowski

Casino players have the rare opportunity to play craps with a house edge of less than 1 percent. Unfortunately for low rollers, may require wagers too large for their comfort zone. What’s a player on a budget to do? We’ll do some comparison shopping right after we look at what’s needed to get the lowest house edge.To get that less than 1 percent deal, players either back pass and come bets with free odds or lay the odds behind don’t pass and don’t come bets.

There is no house edge on the odds, and the house edge on pass or come combined with single odds is 0.8 percent, and that drops to 0.6 percent with double odds, 0.5 percent with triple odds and so on – the more of your bet is taken in odds, the lower the edge.
