I'm making my pilgrimage to Jokers Wild in Henderson, NV and am looking forward to playing their $1 table! I'm looking for a good strategy that will keep me around for a few hours but also allow me to take advantage of a hot table.

I have $150-$200 Bankroll

Thanks!!!

Drink heavily. What game? Not that it matters, $150 is 150 losses . You won't play 150 hands in a couple of hours at a packed $1 BJ table.

Usually the idea is that the $1 minimum allows a low-roller to still do max odds, which apparently is, or was, 10x there. If this is what you stick to, I'd say your bankroll will last for hours and hours- with luck you are almost as likely to wind up even or winning a bit.

In order to 'take advantage of a hot table' you are going to have to press [if I get what you want out of one]. That will be when you could lose it all. A hot table is a thing 'that was' although we players often want to believe it is a thing 'that is' - a fallacy I too entertain myself with. Of course there is no guarantee that it won't turn cold starting with the next roll. But you knew that.

The riff raff in Biloxi need less than $50 for optimal play. $3 line bet. $3 on all tall small. Hit the all and $245 is yours!

I assume you are planning on going during the week. It's a $2 table on the weekends (or at least it was the 2 times I visited).

Note that they have 25c chips. So if you want to incorporate place bets into your strategy, you can do so with $1.50 bets on the 6/8 or $1.25 bets on the 5/9 and still get paid the full amount ($1.75 for each).

As for a strategy, I would make $1 pass line bets with odds and add either a come bet or place bets on the 6/8. This should give you plenty of action, but keep you from going bust for a good while. Especially since, between the break-in dealers learning the ropes and the players making all sorts of bets between rolls, the pace of play is glacial.

Should I employ some sort of a press strategy after multiple wins or just try to grind with the same bet? If I get to the $14 level with place bets is it better to do a put bet with full odds? Is that offered there?

Just follow the Wizards optimal strategy of betting the Don't with full odds. The enjoyment of watching others get upset as you continue to win is part of the fun. Also be sure to loudly celebrate every win. And most of all Have Fun!
