How To Play To Win
HOW TO WIN AT ANY CASINO
Want to risk relatively little money with a chance to cash in big? Try a roulette strategy that could pay off nicely at both, online and land based casinos:
This method calls for straight-up inside bets where you get paid 35 to 1 if one of the numbers you bet on is rolled. Unless you can afford to splurge, I suggest you select a casino offering $1 chips and $5 minimum inside bets. (Most internet casinos qualify.)
Risk no more than 40 $1 chips. By limiting yourself to relatively small stakes, youll never get badly hurt. Pick any five numbers you like, birthdays and anniversaries or other favorite dates come to mind. If you hit twice in a row, the winnings are nothing to sneeze at!
Start by placing one $1 chip on each of your five chosen numbers. Repeat this same wager until you win; you have enough chips for eight spins. When one of your numbers hits, youll win 35 chips. Now it gets exciting!
Divide the 35 chips youve won over your five numbers, seven on each. If you hit again the pay-off will be 7 X 35 chips, which equals $245 real dollars!
At this point you have to make an agonizing decision. You could quit and cash out - the profit will cover several past or future losing sessions or you could bet-back 100 chips by placing 20 on each of your five numbers. If you hit a third time youll collect $700!
On the other hand, if Lady Luck deserted you, youre still ahead by more than $100. Always remember that no betting system is infallible, thats why I suggest you dont risk more than $40.
Professional gambling writers tell us that blackjack is the one casino table game that can be beaten in the long run. Yet, blackjack is one of the casinos most consistent profit makers. This can only mean that the great majority of players arent winning as often as theyd like to.
Just like video poker players, most blackjack enthusiasts dont bother memorizing all the correct plays. Plus, we humans are not computerized robots, we make mistakes. So, can an amateur win at blackjack? Yes! Heres how:
Memorize these six most important basic strategy rules. (For quick and easy reference, keep a printout handy when youre playing online):
Guard against making mistakes. Errors can be costly. Keep your emotions in check and dont play hunches. Stick to the above rules. Dont buy insurance, casinos never offer anything that isnt to their advantage.
Start by betting the table minimum. Increase the size of your bet after every win and go back to the table minimum when you lose a hand. Youll have more losing than winning rounds, thats why you need follow a sensible betting progression.
Heres what I suggest: Make four consecutive bets at a betting level youre comfortable with, (usually the table minimum). If you dont win at least two of the four hands, try again a little later.
Wait until youre ahead by two units, then use this progression: 2, 3, 5, 7, 10. If your betting unit is $5, the progression would be: $5, $5, $10, $15, $25, $35, $50. Every run of good luck will come to an end. When it does, go back to your original level. Anytime you lose four hands in a row, take a break for a while, no matter whether youre up or down for the session.
