Every casino game has some fanatic who claims they have a system for beating it, but they get awfully quiet when it doesn't work. What are some funky voodoo systems you have personally heard while gambling?

Bac dude: "You see the chart shows PPP then going back to B for one hand, so bet according to the streak and you'll win. I won't bet it because I already colored up."

Bac lady: "You play bank now!"

BJ randoms: "Always take even money. Bird in the hand yada yada yada."

VP randoms: "Never play on a machine that already hit a royal earlier."

Slot randoms: "Vary your bet sizes, small for when you don't feel it, and big when you think you're going to win."
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Thanks, Djatc for your systems... I'll play them soon.

Nah, you vary your bet sizes to fool the machine into paying more than it intended.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I always hear on the sucker bets, "That's where you make the money". I also heard a crazy crazy craps scheme on a table on a cruise. It was the longest most complex thing ever, not sure why I listened, but I don't remember it either.

And while trying to reply I accidentally hit flag post, it was a my fingers are too fat for my iPhone. Apologies.

UTH: Dont' raise until you have at least a pair
BJ: increase bet after dealer BJ - they can't get it twice in a row!

I have a system that has a 100% return. You just have to find the right machine. I think it's usually called "Bill Breaker."

The craziest one I know of is how certain deluded craps players think they can actually control / influence the outcome of their dice throw.

Other than that, I shake my head at the old women who constantly touch and talk to the slot machine they're playing on.

Saw a gal last weekend at Three Rivers casino on the Oregon coast; she talked nonstop, like a crazy woman, and her hands constantly moved over the face of the slot game.

I think she really was crazy.

Then you haven't read gr8player's posts...lol

He's been going on and on and on for SEVEN years now about how he "overcomes" the House Edge at baccarat by varying the size of his bets & managing his money properly. And if you try to use math to support your position, he will simply tell you that even though YOUR math gives the edge to the house, HIS math gives the edge to him. Then, if you ignore the guy, he'll continue to go on and on and on until you go nuts!
