Blackjack is my game.  Seldom lose.  I play it, teach it and deal it!  If you have the money Craps is one of the best (second lowest odds to Baccarat).  To play Craps, you have to have at least $1000 per session and you need to follow the lead of the pros and watch the tables until you find a HOT or COLD table.  Then you play "for" or "against" also called "right" and "wrong".  You can win thousands in a short time.  I strongly disagree with the person that said that betting "wrong" bothers the other players. 

I have just learned how to deal Baccarat.  I have not played it in a casino, but having done a lot of research on the game, I find that it has the best odds of all the games in the casinos.  The casinos allow (even provide the cards) players to write down the results of each draw.  There is a way to do it so that you can spot trends.  An ex-dealer told me that the house hopes that the big betters lose and the small betters win because the casino does not make much money on Baccarat.

    Pai Gow is a very popular game in the casinos here in California.  I deal it, but seldom play it.

      Slots........hands down...

      I have a system...I've been down A.C. so many times I know where the loose slots are in almost every casino! I plop myself down and when I start winning I cash out right away.....then start over again at the same machine and win again...etc.  Last time I was down there, I cashed out 5 times on the same machine and kept winning!!!

          CalifDude,

          Do they offer Pachinko at your casino. I think that it is the most fun and addictive game out there. While I was in Japan I was so addicted to it (and good at it) that it was unreal. The Japanese are really onto something with that game, I would love to play it just one more time. I always did pretty good at it but the Japanese were bothered when I hit really good. It is like a mixture of slot machines, video games and pin ball all wrapped up into one bright flashing light frenzy.

            I have played Pachinko in Japan and I own a very nice Pachinko machine with all the bells and whistles (and lights!).  When I played in Japan, you only won packs of gum, etc.  No money.  I have not seen any Pachinko machines in San Diego County.

              Roulette- relaxing, easy and at times hypnotic, and money comes fast.

              2nd-Craps- fast, fun and money comes fast.

              3rd- Blackjack- it's ok

              Never could do a thing with slots. Will sit at one when I'm not quite ready to leave the casino floor, or need a shot break from one of the other games. There is a three card Poker game that I played in Florida last year that I really enjoyed. Can't remember the name at this time.

                CalifDude,

                Gambling is illegal in Japan. What they do instead is after you win all of these little steel balls you put them in a counter. The machine punches out a ticket that says how many you won and you take it to the couter to get your "gifts". This is where it gets shady, you can get cigarettes, gum and all of that garbage or you can get these little plastic gold coins in a little display box. You take this little piece of crap outside of the building and down a little alley (usually right beside the parlor) and put it in this hole in the wall. Give it about twenty seconds and Walla.......the tray slides back out of the hole and there is your money. They circumvent the gambling laws by "buying" your "gift". Sneaky little rascals. If anyone else on here knows of pachinko machines in Atlantic City, Tunica or anywhere else let me know.

                    I have been playing craps but i can never get too much ahead.  I have goten into the Hold em craze and i think im pretty good.  So i guess i would vote Hold 'Em first and craps second.  But visa versa about a year ago.

                      Well, my Wife and I had the pleasure of going to Vegas 2 years ago for our wedding anniversary. On the slot machines, we lost $300 in less then an hour. So we moved over to observe the craps table, keep in mind, we didn't play because we have no idea how (nor do we now). The folks at the craps table asked my wife the toss the dice. First toss was a pair of 1's, they assured her it was ok and to toss again (a few did threaten bodily harm if she did it again). Second toss hit a pair of 1's again. Needless to say, we left that table really FAST.

                      Since we didn't understand the card games too well, we decided to try Roulette. Well, by the end of our little vacation, we walked out with just enough cash to pay off our trip and all our expenses related to the trip. We had no clue we was playing a sucker game, but we did have a great time.

                      Also, did play a little bit of Keno while eating breakfast, won $100 bucks, was nice to get breakfast paid for :-)

                        I like the progressive "wheel of fortune" slot machine and a slot game called "penguin pays" it is a video slot machine at my local casino.

                          Blackjack: 2 decks, H17, DD on any 2 cards, NDAS

                          Players advantage = -0.55%.

                          Count 2,3,4,5,6 as +1    7,8,9,  as 0  10,A as -1

                          Jump to 15 times original bet when count is +3 or above and then get barred.

                            I am hooked on keno so was hoping someone on the post had an insight onto a spreadsheet(excel) that we could input past numbers and have it calculate the best sets of 3-4-5-6-7 to play, or maybe a free software somewhere to do this. In my state it runs every 4 minutes all day. Thanks for any help
