what did you play?

blackjack and roulette. i sit down at the blackjack table watch a few hands then bet after the dealer has had a successful streak of high cards. i have not had any problems with counting so far and i can say its worked 75% of the time. 

on roulette i use the double down strategy.

    i dont play blackjack, but i love roulette. i rarely play it anymore becuase the house advantage is too high. when im in vegas, i am mostly playing poker, but my favorite table game is pai gow poker. have you ever played? its very simple and the house has no advantage so you have to pay 5% on every winning hand. they have progressive pai gow tables as well, where you can win huge amounts with a $1 extra bet. what i cant understand is why so many people spend so much $ on slots and keno...house edge is over 30% in keno. i know slots are "fun", but statistically, they are worse than scrath-offs. even the slots that say they payback up to 98.5%, its one guy who wins a ton, and 1,000's that win nil.

      ive heard good things about pai gow i want to try it when i go to vegas. i agree keno and slots are pointless. 

      roulette the odds are pretty good imo, at least compared to scratch offs. im sure with the thousands ive spent on scratch offs id have more money if i spent it at a casino ......

        i totally agree that roulette is a lot more profitable than scratch-offs. as far as casino games go though, they have the 4th worse edge to keno, slots, and then let it ride. i think i play roulette differently than you. i blanket the board as opposed to what you do. i blanket heavy between 12 and 30 so i either lose my bankroll in 10 minutes or i make a nice profit. i always stack heavy on red 14 and black 22. for some reson they seem to hit for me every 15 minutes or so. at 36-1, its hard not to love playing the inside with stack heavy single numbers.

          if i notice a colum hit 2-3 times in a row i will split the numbers on other colums. worked 2 out 3 times thus far.

            Thr Royersford beer store was bad today (even got 2 near the end that lost - #058 Pure Gold and #096 Cash Up.) Giant at least produced a $20 winner on Hot $100,000 (#031) and another free ticket on Whole Lotta Hundreds (#008.) Took 3 of each to get the wins. Today I was the ticket hawk for a change (albeit with limited money - $20 + $2 from the beer store.)

              so my win streak at the casino continues but so does my poor scratch off streak

              roulette profit = $150

              scratch off losses = -$50

              overall i made $100 bucks... scratch offs are a waste of money the odds suck....

                I just keep plugging along on the scratch offs.

                Some better days might be here to stay..I'm happy the $100's are popping again...I wasn't too hopeful after a string

                of $20's and $50's max.

                2 Hot $100,000's - #040 $0.00, #041 a Moneybag! - total $100

                2 Cash Extravaganza's - #005 $0.00, #006 Safe symbol - won $25

                2 Cherry Slots - #000 and #001 - won $0.00

                1 Diamonds and 7's - #010 - won $100 on one spot

                3 20x the Money's #'s 029, 030...$0.00....#031 won $40 matching 2 spots

                1 Monopoly #059 - $0.00

                2 Pure Gold - #'s 012, 013...both lost.

                I have to go out and am going to see what the hawks left behind...maybe a top prize!

                Right..

                    Haven't seen you here in a while posting results, dr65 - have the hundreds kept coming? Congrats on your wins!! There's another hundred drought here. I don't buy as many tickets but I never see $100 on the $10 games.

                      Hi Matt! I know, I had lost some interest in posting the scratch off ticket results. I suspected for awhile

                      that they were playing with the wins...or had previously timed the wins to come to this point just in time

                      for the raffle - I'm sure they tinker with the random prospect of things, it's not just a 'throw them into the

                      mix and see what happens'...I play a lot of tickets and have a lot of wins, that's the way it goes. There

                      have been $100's here and there but NOWHERE near the amount they were coming in awhile back. I

                      told you before about the Cash Fever..that is the best example of the decline.

                      It's a great thing that you don't buy many tickets because I'll tell you that you will see a lot of $5 wins,

                      no wins, $10 wins max on the $5 tickets...on the $10's...you'll see a LOT of $10's, $0.00's and a $20

                      once in a great while ($10x2) I've seen $50's as the new $100's.

                      The $100's were actually a nice surprise considering the last couple weeks/few weeks have been 1/2 or

                      less than 1/2 of that.

                      I'm not suggesting that the lottery cheats...lol!...I'm declaring that they think...and think about it more

                      than anyone knows. The odds have to be accurate..but when all is said and done and all the top prizes

                      have been awarded and the game is closed..I would love to see the final/actual odds. I'm suspicious

                      that they are not quite the already rotten odds of slightly over 1 in 4 as they so willingly broadcast.

                      I think it works out to higher odds yet.

                      Think about it this way...if 3,000,000 tickets are sold and those 3 M contain the 3 top prizes and they are

                      redeemed and the game closed....what of the remaining 3 - 4 million tickets and the prizes within those?

                      How MANY prizes are left in a closed run?

                      They can talk odds all day to me but until they release a prizes won report containing the UNPAID

                      portion of each game run, I'm not listening.

                      If I sound down, I'm not...I don't get down..as in the dumps, lol! I do like to consider myself a realist

                      though. They have so many players that the realistic side of the game will never need attention be-

                      cause so many people buy these things looking for the big one and don't consider the whole picture.

                      Heck, I look for the big one too but don't think that buying up a whole bin of them is going to get it for

                      me. My m/o remains the same.....1 to 2 ($20), 1 to 2/3 ($10's)1 to 4 ($5's), 5 to 10 ($2's) and up to 20

                      at a pop for $1.00 tickets.

                      I'll ALWAYS play because I LOVE the scratchers...that does not prevent me from 'issuing' some opinions

                      on what I see happening through loads of experience and remaining realistic about playing and winning.

                       

                      Take it easy everyone on these things if you're on a budget....for now.

                      If not...play away!! It's still fun scratching!!

                            have been awarded and the game is closed..I would love to see the final/actual odds. I'm suspicious

                            that they are not quite the already rotten odds of slightly over 1 in 4 as they so willingly broadcast.

                            I think it works out to higher odds yet.

                            Think about it this way...if 3,000,000 tickets are sold and those 3 M contain the 3 top prizes and they are

                            redeemed and the game closed....what of the remaining 3 - 4 million tickets and the prizes within those?

                            How MANY prizes are left in a closed run?

                            They can talk odds all day to me but until they release a prizes won report containing the UNPAID

                            portion of each game run, I'm not listening.

                            If I sound down, I'm not...I don't get down..as in the dumps, lol! I do like to consider myself a realist

                            though. They have so many players that the realistic side of the game will never need attention be-

                            cause so many people buy these things looking for the big one and don't consider the whole picture.

                            Heck, I look for the big one too but don't think that buying up a whole bin of them is going to get it for

                            me. My m/o remains the same.....1 to 2 ($20), 1 to 2/3 ($10's)1 to 4 ($5's), 5 to 10 ($2's) and up to 20

                            at a pop for $1.00 tickets.

                            I'll ALWAYS play because I LOVE the scratchers...that does not prevent me from 'issuing' some opinions

                            on what I see happening through loads of experience and remaining realistic about playing and winning.

                             

                            Take it easy everyone on these things if you're on a budget....for now.

                            If not...play away!! It's still fun scratching!!

                            Hi, dr! I agree with what you said. The odds of $100 on the $10s seem fishy for one. I wonder if they put more out in a short time (which you can easily miss), and then hold back winners. It's clear there are more losing streaks and small wins. I have sad news about Cash Fever: the last million was claimed. Let's have a moment of silence for the wins it once produced.......

                            Like you I got a $40 20x the Money today (#007) and that saved my day. Also had 2/3 Hot $100,000s win at one store ($5 and $10), and went 0/1 at the other store. Had no luck with my Diamonds & 7s #019, and all I got on a few $2 games was $4 on Whole Lotta Hundreds. The Electric 8s have been anything but lucky lately.
