Last Memorial Day I went to Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, NC, about 2 hrs. drive from home, for some gambling action. To my dismay, the table minimums were $25. I immediately turned away, played some slots, and left very disappointed. Time passed and I thought out a plan, which I have NOT tried yet, on how to defeat the $25 casino imposed minimum with legal small bets ($3-15), still use the $25 minimum when necessary, play for an hour or more without going bankrupt on a "cold" or "choppy" table, and possibly walking away winning. So to those of you forum player/participants, using your creative juices, tell us how one would attack those greedy casinos and the $25 table minimum using those small table legal bets in conjunction with the $25 minimum as required. Your buy-in should be $500. Your plan can be point specific. After a week of answers, I will reveal my plan or "system."
Please don’t tell us you will bet $40 on the pass line and $25 on the don’t pass, thus in your mind really betting $15 on the pass line? And just ignore when a 12 is rolled? Assuming you were talking about craps?
Unless you're an AP or other reasons, casinos offer entertainment at a cost. The original aim of WoO was to reduce this cost by pointing out better ways to play games. If you feel the perceived cost is too high then leave it for others.
Last week I walked into a pub and seeing their range of beers only liked one. When the bar staff said they'd run out of that one, I gave my excuses and walked out. That particular pub used to have a range of good beers but their choice has gone down. However there are enough people who enjoy that type of beer.
It's the same with 6/5 BJ!
If you don't cover at least two numbers you are playing with 1/10 or more of your session stake on each hand. Most players don't have
the discipline to avoid betting more when they "feel" a hot roll is happening. If their feeling is wrong, they've shot even more of their stake
If you need to have more than a couple numbers in action, go to LAS or somewhere that has casinos with a lower rent.
So you must be clairvoyant as to the internal workings of my "system." That "gift" would be of more productive use at the roulette table.
Bet a buck each on hard six and eight.
Yeah, horrible HA...anyway, keep making the bet, every shooter.
When it hits increase the bet on each a couple units, and regress to a buck each if the profit is lost.
If you get a hit at the higher level then you should have enough money to make a few $25 bets.
