Episode # 18 Great Expectations – best casino gambling advice ever!


Episode # 18 content: “Great Expectations”
1. Since negative expectation games cannot be beat, Why Play?
2. Roulette has a general house edge of 5.2%; if the numbers 4 or 10 are the established point numbers in craps, even with 5x odds the house edge is even higher – 5.56. All casino table games cannot be beaten in the long run.
3. In craps taking 100x odds to lower the house edge is a crazy risk of money. Best to bet on on the 6 and 8 as established point numbers using the “put” bet and 10x odds. This lowers the house hedge to 0.83. That’s a sensible risk.
4. In fact, the odds bet itself does not even the house advantage because money must first be put on the pass line; the best bet in craps, the odds bet behind the line is still a “combination bet” that can never make the bet exactly even up with the house.
5. Consider that even without a house edge, you can lose your shirt in gambling. Never forget this; there is always a risk.
6. Anthony Curtis of the Las Vegas Advisor seems fatalistic with gambling advice because he is trying to protect his readers from losses, which is a noble cause.
7. Know what the dealers know; go to Heather Ferris’ free dealer training school at No kidding, this is for real.
8. How we turn “negative expectations” into GREAT EXPECTATIONS.. this advice is the only sensible answer to Why Play Table Games and slots with negative expectation math, the law of averages, and the house edge at work.
9. Comparison of Pennsylvania’s Meadows and Rivers Casinos; Janie picks The Meadows
10. Janie talks “Kitty Glitter,” race horses, Hershey World
11. Great Expectations is the only correct mindset for the recreational gambler; otherwise you are fooling yourself and this is may be the most important casino information that you ever hear. It’s about having a great time (Great Expectations) that does not require winning at every turn. That’s impossible. So do not ruin your life betting money that you cannot afford to lose. Be careful and wise with your cash. Remember no matter how you bet, you are destined to lose if you refuse to quit when ahead.

Episode # 13 Boomers, Cars, Airplanes, and Casinos

(Content Overview) Boomers (ages 53 to 71) love cars and travel in general. Gen-Xers buy in also. Millennials – every so often. See how we combine cars, airplanes, and casinos in our “pursuit of happiness.” and we want you to do the same. Part 2: Casinos USA reviews the beautiful Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Maryland – one of the most scenic venues in America for a Casino Resort, and it is family friendly with many onsite activities, including swimming in a mountain lake on a white sand beach with lifeguards, rental boats, fishing, indoor heated pool, 4 restaurants and bars, fire pits, walking and biking trails, and an 18 hole award winning golf course. Also look at the activities outside of the resort in nearby Cumberland or the Blue Knob Skiing Area. Don’t forget the state park has its own Aviary. The Rocky Gap Casino Resort is designated as a AAA Diamond Resort. Part 3: DICE CONTROL? We reveal that we do not believe in dice control, but we do believe that by “setting dice” certain “dice tendencies” regarding outcomes are created. We will discuss our three favorite “sets” and follow-up with photos of these sets on our website and on our Facebook pages: Casinos USA. The three sets: (a.) The V Three’s, (b.) The Inverted Six Set, (c.) The Double 5 hardway set. We believe that these sets will give you a shot at going 15 roles or more, and we will also discuss where 40 plus roles were experienced using these three exact sets. In fact, we went to nearly 90 rolls at the Rio in Las Vegas with the Inverted 6 set.

Episode # 12

Episode # 12 Season Two
“3 Casino Resorts in 6 Days,” Setting a Trip Monetary Limit, Configuring Time, Route from Pittsburgh to Lawrenceburg, Passing other casino resorts on the way to Indiana, 36 hours of craps play using 5 betting strategies, (Betting Details End of Writeup) What won? What Lost?, What craps casino dealers stood out? Janie talks about the “Americana” of Southern Indiana river towns and the ever present “Hoosier Hospitality”: Lawrenceburg, Aurora, Rising Sun, Florence, Vevay, Lobby Bar at the Belterra Casino Resort is Crazy Cool, Yes, take a casino road trip soon!

5 Craps Betting Strategies used on trip to Southern Indiana casino resorts:

Strategy 1. (at the Hollywood) 6 and 8 Off and On after 3rd roll after come-out roll; Play hard number also if it is a 6 and 8 established as number by come-out roll; press these bets one unit per each $100 won. * Place the 6 or 8 if it is an established point so that you can go “off” when you want. Remember a pass line or put bet cannot come down, only the odds behind it. However, a Don’t Pass Line bet can always be taken down.

Strategy 2. (at the Rising Sun) Play Don’t Pass Line for $15 with a $40 lay on the 4 as a hedge. This will cost you $1 on a win of $20. Add an all-day $5.00 hard way bet on the 4 as an hedge. Take lay bet down after one roll following the come-out (or not).

Strategy 3. (at the Rising Sun) Don’t Pass line for $25 and play the “Iron Cross” at minimum levels. This bet is placing the 5-6-8 and field. I do it for 2 or 3 rolls then go off. There is no hedge for the don’t pass line. Player may lift Don’t Pass Line Bet if he/she wins more than $12 on the Iron Cross Bet.

Strategy 4. Smart Craps (at the Rising Sun) Pass line with 2x odds and placing the 6,8,10 (table minimums) and putting $5 on the hard 10 – Parley the hard 10 if it hits. This takes the hard way bet to $40. Then cover this bet by buying the 10 for $20. Increase odds behind the line to 4x and 5x if I begin to win consistently. Press place bets if this occurs also.

Strategy 5. (at the Belterra) Play the Don’t Pass Line at the minimum level and play Don’t Come (DC) bet every roll. There is no hedge on the don’t pass line. At a $5 table, it is $5 on the Don’t Pass and $5 for every DC bet. Make a DC bet after every roll of the dice following the come-out roll. This is a great bet to play the dark side.
