Basic Rules for Poker Games : How to Play Bon Appetite Poker

This is a game that we’re going to introduce to everyone. This is one that I’ve never seen anywhere else. We only play this one in the home game that we have at our house and it’s called Bon Appetite and it’s a variation of Seven Card Stud. It’s a high low split with the opportunity at the end of the hand or towards the end of the hand to shock a card and get a new card to try to make your hand even better or to even try to make a hand.

So let’s see how this game is dealt out and played out in its entirety. We’ve went ahead and dealt out the game. Players had three cards down, four cards face up just like regular Seven Stud. Now you’ve got to remember this is a high low split so each player is either going for a high hand or a low hand.

Now all the betting is over and this is where the shock actually comes into play. The player here to the left of the dealer will say yes I would like to shock a card and they play a determined amount by the house and they actually get a free card. In that case he traded a ten for a ten. If the player chooses to shock a card from the cards face up then the card comes face up.

If they choose to shock a card from the three cards down then the card comes to them down. Once everybody has shocked a card, you now have to declare and to declare what you do is you take three chips from your stack, one, two, three, and you put them in your hand and put them under the table and when you come back up on the table you’re either going to have zero chips in your hand for going low, one chip in your hand for going high, or two chips in your hand for going both ways. Now the trick with going both ways is you have to win both ways. If you get beat or either ties on going both ways then you lose it all. You do not win anything.

So in this case, it looks like this person might be going low. They would come up with no chips in their hand. Now the players that come up with going low or the players that come up with going high, they’re going against each other to see who has either the better low hand or the better high hand. Once those are determined, the pot is split between the high and the low hand and the winners are given the money and that’s how Bon Appetite is played.

10 Things Casinos Don’t Want You To Know

How do casinos trick you into feeling like you’re winning, even when you’re not? How do they get your money out of you even if you don’t gamble? From psychological tricks to behind-the-scenes technology, here are 10 things casinos would prefer you never think about.

10 – No clocks or sunlight. It’s a pretty simple equation – the more time you spend in a casino, the more money you spend. Casino games take your time as much as your money. Like binging a great show on Netflix, you can lose a whole day and not even notice.

That’s what the casinos want. There’s a psychology behind keeping you isolated from the outside world. Seeing a clock will remind you that you’ve spent 5 hours at the casino. Looking out the window and seeing that it’s dark will spur you to leave. And if you leave, you are no longer spending money there.

9 –Stealing Dealers. The bad news is, dealers have been caught stealing.

The good news is, they’re stealing from the casino, not from the players. The most common method of theft is simply stealing chips. One woman stuffed 3 thousand dollars worth of chips in her bra – six chips at 500 dollars each.

And she did it on an elevator, under video surveillance. Another dealer at a UK casino had a false pocket where we would slide chips that went all the way down into his socks. Then he would go out on a smoke break and give the chips to an accomplice who would exchange them for cash.

8 –Scent Science. Almost nothing that you see in a casino is by accident. The height of the ceilings, the position of the lights, the smell on the floor. Everything. But the scent science of casinos isn’t as simple as you think. Scent is strongly tied to memory and emotion, so it isn’t as simple as just drawing people in with the scent of popcorn or freshly-baked cookies.

Scents are blended and pumped into the ventilation systems to reflect the location of the casino. Then they are focus-tested to see which scents tend to drive more spending and gambling. Even your sense of smell is being psychologically manipulated.

7 –Labyrinth Design. Much like grocery stores, casinos are laid out in a very deliberate sort of way to get you to wander through them and spend money in places you wouldn’t normally. Unlike grocery stores, casinos are not laid out to let you know where everything is. They’re labyrinth-like mazes of flashing lights and confusion. You’re not likely to get LOST in a casino, necessarily.

If you really want to get out, it’s easy enough to do. But in the meantime, if you’re just wandering around on the floor, you’re much more likely to run into a shiny wall of something new than the exit.

6 –Tables are a better bet. Slot machines have the biggest payouts of any game on the casino floor. Put a dollar in, win a million, right? And on top of that, they’re also the most visually attractive. Why do you think that is? In addition to having the worst odds of any game on the floor, they are also the game in which you have the least control. You simply start the machine, and the outcome is predetermined. At table games like blackjack, you can at least make decisions that affect the outcome somewhat.

5 –Always Watching. In a large-scale casino like the Bellagio, there are probably about 2 thousand cameras on in the casino at all times, with roughly 50 monitors displaying the footage on demand. Obviously, a few security personnel can’t watch all 2 thousand cameras at once. But the footage is kept and archived, so if there is any evidence of cheating or theft, they can reference the footage.

4 – Near wins. Near-wins are a deceptively strong weapon. To a gambler’s brain, an “almost win” provides almost the same rush as an actual win… even though it’s a loss. In other words, if a slot machine comes up with two 7’s instead of three, what it basically tells your brain is, “Hey, we almost won, just need to play a little more to win big!”. In reality, those near-wins are programmed into most slot machines to keep people playing… because a near-win is still a loss, and loss still means losing money.

3 –Can’t Cheat the House. Casinos are on the forefront of security. They watch everything from every angle. The simple act of counting cards? They’ve seen that a billion times. There are people coming in and trying to defraud casinos with disguises and false identities, so they’ve invested in facial recognition technology.

They’re constantly covering all the angles. If you think you’re going to walk in and outsmart the house, think again. They’ve probably already busted someone else trying to do the same thing.

2 –Draining the non-gambler. Casinos aren’t just places where you play gambling games. They’re huge entertainment hubs, with hotels, restaurants, bars, and even live entertainment.

If you’re spending time at a casino, they’re going to find ways to separate you from your money. • Hidden fees and marked-up services are two of the most popular ways to do it – and while that’s true of all hotels to an extent, hotel casinos are among the worst offenders.

1 –The Psychology of Chips. If you’ve learned anything from this, it’s that casinos will use any dirty, subtle, psychological tricks they can to lift your money off of you. The use of chips is one of the most insidious. We all know what money feels like, right? It’s metal coins, or paper bills, or plastic cards. But casino chips? Chips don’t feel like money. Their purpose is to DISGUISE the value of money. That’s why a one-dollar chip is the same size and weight as a 25 thousand-dollar chip. You might think twice about putting a stack of hundred-dollar bills on the table for a bet. But one little, innocent chip?

That doesn’t seem like much at all – even though it’s the same amount. Furthermore, to leave the casino, you have to cash out. And that means you have to take your chips into the casino and cash them out… walking by countless other temptations on the way.

Dell XPS 15 Review (9560) – GTX 1050 + Kaby Lake = 💙💙💙

Hey, how’s it going? This is Dave 2D, and this is the new XPS 15, the 9560. So the previous generation, the 9550, was my daily driver for over a year. I used that thing a lot.

So when this new one came in, I was pretty excited to give a good run. Now looking from the outside, not much has changed from the previous generation. It’s still one of the best built Windows laptops. So a lot of devices that use aluminum are pretty to look at, but they’re delicate.

This laptop is less focused on aesthetics I mean It’s still nice to look at, but it’s also a tank. The exterior surface holds up well — The hinge holds the tension perfectly after a year, and the soft-touch Carbon [fiber] finish — when I first looked at this stuff I thought for sure it will wear down, or at least get scuffed over time. But it doesn’t at all. The build quality on this thing is awesome.

Another thing I really like is the 4K screen. It’s probably the best part about this laptop 15.6 inch IPS touch panel, amazing color gamut, amazing color accuracy, great viewing angles super thin bezels, and it’s got good software to switch between the color spaces I consider this to be the best screen on the market for what I do. And if you’re a professional gamer And you need crazy-fast refresh rates Then maybe not. But if you’re a content creator, or if you just want an awesome display, this one is really really good The webcam still looks up your nose, but if this is the price for an ultra thin bezel, I’ll take it any day It’s also easy to open for upgrades and when you’re in there You can do your standard stuff, like adding more RAM or swapping out drives.

The stock RAM is faster than last year It’s still DDR4, but now it’s running at 2,400 megahertz. The stock drive speeds are great, better than last year as well The battery has been upgraded, it’s now a 97 Watt-Hour battery, which is actually near that 99 Watt-Hour legal limit. And if you take this big battery and you combine it with that Kaby Lake chip that’s inside here, you get really good battery life. You’re comfortably hitting seven and a half hours of battery life with the screen at 250 nits It’s pretty awesome. That’s a full day battery.

You can bring it to work, leave your charger at home And then just charge it when you come back home And if you want to, you can actually remove this big battery, get some parts on Amazon, and replace it with a 2.5 inch drive, and a smaller battery. I’ll link these stuff below, but I didn’t know my older XPS 15 could have two storage drives. So other stuff that I like — the keyboard is pretty good. It hasn’t changed I like the layout a lot. Backlighting is white.

There’s nothing I really dislike about it And it’s pretty easy to get used to, but it’s not a keyboard that you’ll fall in love with. It’s good It’s just not excellent The trackpad is unchanged. Glass surface performs really well because of the Windows precision drivers and the button mechanics are nice Now, if you’re coming from a Macbook, and you’ve never used anything other than Apple’s trackpads You’re probably not gonna love this one.

But seriously, this is as good as it’s gonna get for Windows trackpads It’s really good, but Apple’s trackpads are better So those are some things that I really liked about the 9560. But there are some things that I didn’t like in the previous generation that haven’t changed. So first, I know this is really petty, but the color of the device — I wish it came in more colors It has one of the best looking interiors with that carbon fiber finish. But the exterior is silver, and you can only get it in silver You can get skins, I’ll link this one below But it would be cooler if Dell made a dark grey or a black version of this laptop The second thing are the speakers. They have good volume, but they don’t have the best location.

They’re underneath the keyboard Even though they kinda face the user, the audio isn’t as clear as I’d like it to be I wish these were repositioned, maybe up to the top or something. The third thing is a little more important It’s the ports. The port selection is decent. There’s a bunch of USB ports, audio jack, HDMI, and an SD Card slot I think it’s a better selection than some other pro laptops I do wish it had more USB type A ports, like when we have a mouse plugged in, there’s only one of those ports left And it can be a little bit cramped. The other thing is that the Thunderbolt 3 port only uses two PCIe Lanes, not four. So instead of the full 40 gigabit per second pipe You only get half: 20 gigabits per second.

So most users won’t be affected by this at all But because it has two lanes, you can only run a single 4k 60 Hertz display from the port and if you want to run an external GPU, the speeds will be about ten percent slower than it should be. The new Kaby Lake CPU gives a bit of a performance bump. This system feels snappier when opening apps and games, same with Adobe Premiere. Stuff is just a bit quicker Partially due to the faster clock, and partially due to the new speed shift tech The GTX 1050 is a nice performance upgrade from the older 960M It’s a faster GPU And now it has 4GB of RAM instead of just 2. On benchmarks we’re looking at a 25% increase in graphical performance From the 960M. Render times in Adobe Premier aren’t that much faster, but I’m noticing smoother playback and editing using the GTX 1050 Light and moderately demanding games will be able to comfortably hit 60 frames per second with a GTX 1050 if you want to see more details about gaming performance, I made a pretty comprehensive gaming Benchmark video, which I’ll link below It’s a quiet laptop on idle, often silent.

Fan noise under maximum load still isn’t that loud There’s a bit of thermal throttling during benchmarks, so when I’m playing games or if I’m editing video It doesn’t happen. I’ve never noticed actual in-game throttling. but when i run benchmarks for long enough we do see clock speed reduction. Thermals on the surface look good There’s nothing uncomfortable to use. The carbon fiber deck really helps with keeping surface temperatures down. Alright, with the new 9560 XPS 15 you’re still getting amazing build quality from the aluminum and carbon fiber materials.

The 4K touchscreen is unchanged from last year, and it’s awesome It’s literally my favorite laptop screen right now The backlit keyboard is easy to get used to, and comfortable to type on. The glass trackpad is one of the best in the business On the inside, the Kaby Lake i7 and the GTX 1050 are nice upgrades from last year’s models. Cooling could be a little bit better The stock RAM and the SSD have good speeds But if you want, they’re easily replaced, and there’s a 97 Watt-Hour battery that will last you around seven and a half hours Now the XPS 15 starts at a $1000 But once you add the GTX 1050 And the 4K panel, which I highly recommend, you’re looking at $1600 dollars and up. It’s really not cheap But it’s a fantastic machine. Is it perfect?

No. I mean, there’s other machines that are really good in this price point, like the Razer Blade comes to mind That’s equally awesome in its own kind of realm But if you’re looking for a machine that has great build quality, like really really great build quality Fantastic screen, and you don’t need like a super powerful video card, take a look at this one I think you’ll like it. That’s the end of this video, thumbs if you enjoyed it, sub if you loved it. See you guys next time.

Recipe for Successful Gambling

The primary factor for successful gambling is pre-selling. Whether you are gambling online or offline, it is important that you pre-sell your mind to the fact that you are going to leave the table with more money than you first started with. In my opinion, 

Your mind set should not be ridden with guilt of maybe having lost in the past. You are playing for now and trying to make money for the future. It is the future that matters and it is the future you can change.

But, having said that, it is also essential to be realistic about money matters and your wants without being too greedy. Winning while gambling at Oncasinogames Canada should always be a want, a desire to do something you enjoy and never degenerate into a ‘need’. If you are needy and greedy, you will lose objectivity and focus and ultimately fail.

Positive thinking is a must while gambling. Believe in yourself and that you will win at the end of the day. Imagine the profits and the money you will make when its all over. Be focused on the game and the money will come to you.

Most importantly, learn to relax and enjoy the game. Ultimately, whatever is meant for you will come your way if it has to. You have done the pre selling, got your mind set towards positive thinking and now you have to simply trust and believe in the powers above.

The recipe for successful gambling is to pre-sell to your subconscious mind, an image you desire, with the help of your thoughts and emotions. Believe in yourself and think positively. And you will rarely ever fail.

Bingo is primarily a game of chance and there is little you can do to predict the outcome in the game. Below is a compilation of bingo tips given by veteran bingo players to increase your chances of winning and having an enjoyable experience.

Play only as many cards as you can watch and monitor.


Use your dabber lightly; do not bang it on the board as it may tend to leak.

To win more coveralls, try to come in early and get the first set of paper cards issued. On busy nights managers stock the counter with plenty of cards. The top ones usually are the lowest free space number cards. Check the next coverall for yourself and look at the flashboard.

How to Play Blackjack – Doubling Down & Splitting

Okay here we go with an example hand for you. Three boxes being played, let’s deal the cards. 2, 10, 8, 4 for the house, oh a matching pair there. Right, in this scenario, we’ve got the chance to split. You can split any matching pair, it’s not compulsory, it’s up to you if you wish to or not.

Let’s do it in this case. We’ve got a pair of 2’s, we will put another stake down here and play them as two separate hands, doubling the chance to win. Let’s see what cards we get here, 7 and 9. Now we’ve spoken also about the opportunity in the game of Blackjack of Doubling Down. Now if your first two cards are worth a total of 11 or less you have the chance, if you wish to, to buy a card or to double down. In this case, you would double your initial bet here double down.

In this case you would double your initial bet here for one card only if you wish to. Let’s have a little look at the situation. You’ve got 9 here, I’m going to say we don’t double down at this stage, we’ll just take a card. So it’s a card here, your total goes to 19, that’s very very good.

Here on 11, I think that’s slightly better odds, it’s good strategy perhaps to take a card on 11, as a double down. So you’d have to again, put your bet down there, 4 chips in this case. One card only, doubling down.

And your total is 20. Moving across, 17, that’s a good hand to stand on. 11 is another opportunity, should you wish to, to double down. Let’s double down one more time and make this a very expansive hand.

There you go, you’ve doubled down in this scenario again one card only when you double, 19 is the total. At this stage, you finish your decision making, we come over to the house, the house will draw cards until 17. When the house reaches 17, there will be no more cards drawn.

8, 14, a perfect scenario, the dealer has bust. Fantastic! We go over 21, you get paid. Every single one of these bets is a winner.

A lovely scenario for you players. You’ve had splits, you’ve had doubles, every single bet is getting paid. That’s the perfect hand for you.

In this video American casino guide associate editor Matt Bourie learns how to count cards at the blackjack apprenticeship training course in Las Vegas.

Matt is a novice player who attended the course to learn about card counting from former professional blackjack players and to see if they wanted to pursue it further Matt explains what the course was like and his thoughts on what he learnt. Following that, there is an interview with American casino guide: author, Steve Bourie and Colin Jones, who is a cofounder at the blackjack apprenticeship training course hi. I’M Matt Bourie associate editor of the American casino guide and in January 2015 I had the chance to attend the Blackjack apprenticeship training course in Las Vegas. This is a course designed by Ben Crawford and Colin Jones to former professional blackjack players from 2006 to 2009 ran a card counting team that won millions of dollars. The team was very unique because it consisted primarily of members at their church in a documentary was made about their exploits.

The movie was called Holy Rollers, the true story of card counting christians and it’s currently available on Netflix, as well as DVD after several years.

The success they decided to disband the team but they’re both still active in the training of new players and teaching them how to become better at the game of blackjack with their website blackjack apprenticeship, dot com several times a year. They all sold the workshop for players to help them hone their card counting skills to gain an advantage over the casino. I was invited to take the beginner’s course and I was eager to attend because I was familiar with the concept of counting cards, but I don’t really know the details of how you put in the use in a casino plus.

I know several professional card counters and I always wondered what their jobs and tailed. So what follows is a video showing a bit of what I learned at the blackjack apprenticeship training program and my thoughts about the course following. That is an interview that my dad Steve maury did with Colin Jones about the course and his goals for the students to start off.

They handed out booklets that included notes of what would be discussed during the class, as well as basic strategy, charts and also index numbers. Occasionally, when account gets very high or very low, you need to deviate from basic strategy and the index numbers tell you when and if you need to do this. After that, we had to introduce ourselves, we had to say our name where we’re from and why we are taking the course. A lot of the people taking a course said that they didn’t like their current jobs and wanted to quit then and count cards for a living. I’Ve always heard that this is a very unrealistic goal and that thought was more or less echoed by Ben in college. After we introduced ourselves, Ben and Colin told us their story, they told us how they started with just the two of them in a few thousand dollars and ended up with a team of over 20 people winning millions of dollars in the casinos.

The next thing we did was go over the agenda for the day, which was very full the course lasted a full eight hours. They then went on to explain EV, which is also known as expected value, and that is how card counters determine how much money they should be making throughout the day. Another thing they discussed was that there’s two types: blackjack players, those that play for fun and those that play to make money and we have to decide which of those we are gon na, be they said that professional players got their fun out of making money, whereas Most people in a casino just play for fun. Another thing we went over was they gave us are a few tips on how to practice at home. Before we went into the casino to bed any real money, then they went over.

What I thought was the most important thing every day that you should never gamble with money that you cannot afford to lose financially or mentally. The next part of the course was the first dealing session is when we all sat down on an actual blackjack table and they dealt out. Cards gave us chips and we tested out what we knew. The first then call went over this dealing session was how to calculate the running count in the true count, and this is a process that that we will do it every single hand, and we want you guys to leave knowing this process, which is running divisor. True, after everything, ok and I’m gon na say running and you’ll say what the running count is.

I selected a running count as sex and divisor. That means having Dexter left of 85. So what future count if you’re, a music supervisors, 5 %, want next he explained. I we should change our bets based on the true count. So if you have a true one, he should bat two chips get richer to shabad.

What three tips truth read that poor chips: 34. So true for you that a I’ve chips and then sure if I’ve been above in bed, 6 chips, so this would be your the highest you need about. You need to keep going up forget about the trip 5 K, so whatever that you can issue get out one more unit than the trick out. This isn’t really what you might use while playing in a casino.

This will be a good way to find out how your trigger you know what you think the true counties before I took this course. One thing I didn’t know is when you should actually start counting cards. I always thought that you should start as soon as the dealer deals the first card, but what they explain to me was it’s much easier said.

Wait until the dealer has given everyone their first card and once he deals the first person their second card. That is when you should start counting after that was explained to me. It made it so much easier to be able to keep track of what the running count was, and the divisor and getting the true can’t. The part that I found the most difficult actually was estimating how many decks were in the discard ray. I think I was wrong pretty much every time they told us to guess all day after the first dealing session calling went over a few ways to maximize your EV are expected value when playing blackjack summer. Those things included the bedspread, meaning how loader make your bed when the count is low or how high you should make your bed when the Count II, nothing he went over, was the initial house edge of the game.

What are some things that affect the casinos edge penetration? Good? What else the rules he asked?

The Standard Heating saw seventeen. Yet if you can tell us where we split all those things number DAX, the most important thing they went over to maximize your EV is penetration or how far back to dealer puts the cut card. It’S better to go further back, because the further back to cut card is the more you know about. The remaining cards in the deck most interesting part of the day was only got a visit from tommy hyland, one of the most successful blackjack players of all time. Tommy’S been running card counting team, since the early eighties and they’ve won millions of dollars. Unfortunately he did not want is videotaping him, so we don’t have any footage.

Is that, but he did answer any questions that anyone had, and I told us some very interesting stories. For instance, he had been kicked out of the casinos in atlantic city so many times that he went during Christmas, dressed as Santa Claus to try and count cards to disguise himself, but he ended up getting kicked out anyways after that they went over a few more Things such as how to build a blackjack team and how to camouflage yourself while you’re in a casino, but we had to leave a little early. So again, we didn’t get to see that a lot of people first with me said that they wanted to become professional card counters and play blackjack for a living.

I honestly think that they could do that with all the information that we learned in this course me. On the other hand, I just thought that I could play blackjack on the side and count cards and make a little bit extra money, but after realizing how much time and effort I would have to put into it to do it correctly, I’m just not sure it Was worth it for me for those who are interested make sure you stay tuned for an interview between my dad, Steve, maury and Colin Jones about some goals colin has for his students in the course at more information for anyone interested in taking it Colin, you and Ben have been involved in blackjack for a while. Now, can you explain that how this all started yeah on we, I think I was right at a college, twenty years old in bed and read some book about how to make a hundred thousand dollars a year gambling at a three-page section on card counting, and I Thats and doable, he told me about it, we started we buy stanford won works arrest. We start small, a couple thousand back to grit into at one point where tea, with million, are bankrolling and played every every level between and how many people were on your team.

You obviously you what you were successful. Did you have a lot of people under Kim yeah? I would say probably forty or fifty people cycle through, but it was really kind of work or about I five to 10 people that their kinda make much money and we’re on. You know for most the time I’m well today we’re here in Las Vegas wan na hear black jacket, blue captives and my son matt is taking your your boot camp to learn to be a better blackjack player. Yeah can can explain, what’s involved in and absolutely so. We do this about three times a year and we take about 10 people a, and you know we want people that have already been through our training online got as far as they can on their own, but we want to help people get you know as to To the next level, whatever that means and what things we learned, we were training.

Is you don’t know you don’t? So we thought we were good at blackjack anyway, we actually were that was involved with another marketing team on and they Kenneth knows. The back is, you know today this kid’s pretty good by that they, you know said he would you be able to do XOM some trips with us, and so he had to go through triggers chain process. He failed their initial test outs in. He thought he was good, but it wasn’t as good as it could be. That’S the same experience I had and so years of people that it’s hard to train yourself to something you know it may be hard to be come out grated instrument without some instruction urs someone say you do these things wrong here.

So up to camp is our opportunity to do that, and you know we’ve had it quite a number people come through that are now playing professionally or or as a hobby or just for fun. Now is the boot camp director that the novice player or sit directly to a more advanced by we’re much more excited about someone once said: do this to make money it’ll, there’s always a big scare people that show up I and that the information is valuable, whether Or not this or professional by that you know we’re most excited I’ll pick, people actually P and what what would you say is the the biggest problem up this students that you have to to come to your your classes? There’S one thing that you find you you focus on the most that they’re lacking in yeah. I’M there’s a couple things. One is how to think about card counting up in a lot of people. There there’s a very different way that we think that a gambler thinks and helping people think differently about the game.

Think differently about how they approach the game. That’S the first hurdle as advanced play it. He is all you know, and it’s not a you know.

If of so it it differently, any you got ta get out, see that seeing United life fires, he all are K, it’s more like a and Jeff. So for most people. Yes, here, usually whole your head out holiday and Jesse fired. The second is just that the actual skills and it takes people a lot more time in Pakistan. They expect and people think they’re pretty good at that. You know they’re really, not all that good and that you know it’s not as hard as becoming at doctor or a lawyer computer programmer.

But it’s not something that you can just practice for a couple hours. They are at the ready to go pee. The casino. Are you actually really up to have to masters skills, so I think the boot camp really help people realize okay, I put some work in, but I still have this. You know this far to go with you.

Would you say that all of the students second day take your class are going to go on to be successful card? Counter that I by then I could? Maybe you can explain. Yeah problems are involved that they don’t do that yeah. Well, a one thing to talk about is why people are getting into it and a lot of people, I’m they like playing blackjack and they wan na you know play it better. I would say that person will, you know, maybe the loose last money at the casino that make they make it with a break even but actually being without a successful at it.

A you know yet takes takes a unique person. That’S really what you put in the amount of time: training it takes. Provoke people wan na, learn more about your your blackjack boot camp as well as your other programs. Are you have for people to become better blackjack players? Where would they do that?

How to Play Roulette – Outside Bets & Column Bets

Hi, I’m Martin from lucky nugget casino nz. This time, I’m gonna run you through how to play Roulette at lucky nugget casino nz, some strategies, some basic principles of the game and a little bit of history as well along the way. The game of Roulette then. What we have here; Roulette wheel with 37, 37 different numbers, the 0 and all the numbers through to 36. And what we’re gonna be doing, is teaching you and showing you all the different betting scenarios in the game of Roulette.

Now Roulette is a game of chance, it’s also, what I always say, it’s a game of risk and reward and I will teach you the risky bets, I’ll teach you the in-between bets and I’ll teach you the very very safe bets as well. In the game of Roulette, you can play riskily, or you can play a little bit more aggressive, let’s look at the very safe bets first, these are the outside chances. Outside chances mean, that by placing a chip on maybe 1-18, or maybe red, or maybe odd numbers, you’re giving yourself 18 of the different numbers on the Roulette Wheel here, 18 of the 37 different scenarios will be winning ones for you. Obviously, that’s not a very big risk, so we don’t give you the biggest of rewards at lucky nugget casino nz.

If you look here, low numbers, 1 to 18, if the number, it’s in the wheel at the moment it’s 15, You bet four chips, you win four chips. it’s as simple as that. If you bet again, if it’s a black number, if you bet 3 chips on black, black comes in, you double it up. It’s as simple as that.

The only thing to watch out for when you do these outside bets, they’re very safe bets, but the 0 is not a winning bet on the outside chances. Lower risk, lower return, a nice way to start playing the game of Roulette at lucky nugget casino nz is the low risk bets. The outside chances we call them, 18 numbers in your favour, you get paid even money and double your winnings if you have a winning return on the wheel. Following on then from those outside chances where you bet 18 numbers with one chip, The next least risky way of playing, fairly safe, is to do something like this; it’s called a dozen, or the cousin of the dozen, which is the column bets that run up the table.

Now, by doing these bets, what you’re doing is you’re giving yourself 12 of the different numbers on the wheel in your favour. In this case, there it is, first 12, very much self-explanatory.

You’re betting all the numbers here 1 to 12, If you’re gonna do the column bets, the column bets here run all up the table, the twelve numbers that run up the table there. If you have a winning chip, a little bit more risky than betting 18 numbers on the outside, you’re only betting on 12 this time, so we’re gonna pay you a little bit more, rather than being payed once, when you bet a dozen you get a triple return if you’re a winner. Again, on the column there, each one you bet, you win two more.

Betting the columns, betting the dozens, 12 numbers in your favor. If you win you get payed at 2/1 odds.

Other Issues of Interest:
