Unless that house is the Trump Taj Mahal.



That is funny..lol Although, the house didn't really lose. Donald still paid himself a huge salary and bonuses. Executives still got paid big money. Players still lost. The only ones who didn't win were the bag holding bond holders and bankers who saw there loans get written off... ultimately passing down to the stock holders. Revel was a beauty! 2 Billion blown and then written off primarily from Morgan Stanley (about 1 billion) and some from state of NJ (300 million).. I wish I could borrow money, mismanage it, pay myself a huge fee personally, and then not have to pay it back. Geeze!

Not playing the game.

Not really an option, you know. I mean what alternatives are there? If you are in Vegas for a two week vacation you sure don't want to watch TV. I don't care for slots. I find baccarat to be rather easy but its not all that exciting you know. I'd like 21 but dealers get angry with players who can't add or who fall asleep at the table.

So what options are there. That is like saying 'OWN the craps table'. Yeah, Id LOVE to own a casino... wanna give me a few hundred million dollars so I can actually own one?

I ain't got the option of having a positive expectation due to poverty and I ain't got the option of daisy-chaining negative expectations together into some sort of positive expectation 'cause nobody got that option.

Bingo is out, Big Wheel is out, so it really comes down to craps for me.

Advantage Craps? There is no such thing.

Walking away from the table? That is like telling a fisherman he can walk away from the fish.

You can and millions do except instead of paying themselves a fee they just go over the top with merchandise. With credit cards. Except it's not billions. It's scaled down to middle class level. For most it's somewhere around 75K. On top of second mortgage loans, student loans, car loans, etc. They pay the minimum on a few different cards by getting a cash advance or a balance transfer from another card. Then, they declare bankruptcy and stick the banks with the bill who pass it on to those of us who pay diligently with higher interest rates and lesser incentives. So, they end up getting somewhere about 100k of merch they don't have to pay for. Basically free. Then they suffer the severe punishment of not being able to get another credit card for 7 years. They must pay in cash for that time period. Brutal. A lot of small business people do something similar too. They go bankrupt in one state and then go open up again in a different state.

Yeah, serial bankruptcy fraud, knowing use of fraudulent cards and knowing acceptance of fraudulent cards, slip and fall claims (a friend goes in and pours something on the floor, you slip and fall), reporting of DUI drivers leaving a bar to Crimestoppers, ... all these things tend to be quite popular.

That's why you need to get into slots more. You can actually get an advantage sometimes and fall asleep without much of a problem.

Found a machine in Las Vegas that is still playable: 0.833% back in free play one day per week. Lose 35-cents in value on every passline bet, but earn 21 cents in freeplay, then earn another 42 cents in freeplay on the odds. Probably close to 25-cents in value on each spin. How many spins per hour? The real edge is that at that level don't have to play too long to earn $100 per week in the mail. I like it a lot more than video poker for an hour or so once per week.
