I am bringing this thread back from the dead.

Today I saw someone stand on 2,2 vs a dealer 4.



Obviously he didn't want to take the dealer's bust card that the casino makes sure to arrange in the deck whenever the dealer has a low upcard.

Many people in the casino don't even know what game they are playing, let alone how to play.
They only know put money somewhere on the table, then either win or lose.
It works for Roulette and Baccarat.
winning streaks come and go, losing streak never ends.

Are you sure that's not a typo and you meant "Keno"?

Why can't people, dealers and players, just let them play their hands any damn way they want to?


They generally do. Everyone has the right to play his hand as he sees fit.

However, if a player is making a suicidal bad play, a dealer may say "you have 20 - are you sure?" with it being a help to the player.

Seen a lady get dealt a Royal on triple play .50. she was a local and regular player. She went to hold the cards fast as she seen it come in. No need, as it auto held, but it didn't lock up because it had a double up feature. oops she hit double up. A red 3 pops up as dealers card. She is VERY upset, she dose NOT want anything to do with the double up(she was convinced it's not random). I begged her to sell it to me. I didn't have more then 4k on me. I promised her I would have 2k+ delivered in 20 min. I tried everything I could think of, including her taking a chance with an insurance deal. I upped my offer . I told her she could hold my cash and even sit in the seat until money came. She wouldn't go for any deal. I didn't want to risk getting kicked out, I was already on the casinos radar, so I let it go.

So she called management after much debate and paper work, they let her out of the Double up and they paid her. Then the manager drew the double up card,picking the 3rd position and..... got a
If you guessed a two ...NOPE... it was a 4 of spades


A simulator thing happened with a semi AP, but a 7 came up.

I've never played a machine with a double up feature. How does it actually work?

From what you wrote, I gather that 1 random face-up card is dealt to the dealer, and some face-down cards are dealt to you, and you win if your selected card is higher than the dealer's?

I wonder what this roulette player's name was. :)

The above example is just a good example of playing with your "heart" and not your head.


Your head can't function without your heart ....hemoglobin.

If I remember correctly (played one once months ago),,,five cards dealt face down. You pick one for yourself and it's shown face up. Then of the other 4 remaining, you pick a dealer's card.


What was the "insurance" or whatever you were trying to buy the royal for? The total payout is $6k right? After seeing a 3 for the player's card....there's only 4 out of 48 cards that can be chosen for the dealers card to win. So the proper insurance (for you to break even), would be like 1/11 of the total payout. Why would you bet $6k to win $6k if only 4/48 cards will win? Or am I missing something?

Dealers card is 3, every card will beat it except for 2. If another 3 comes up, you can either just take the original payout or pick another card to try to double.
