The Wiz has it already, and it depends on the paytable.

I have only played the game live once and did not play that bet, so I voted No.

Sometimes I play it, sometimes I don't. But I never bounce back and forth during a session. It's either every hand, or none at all.

The only casino near me that spreads it has the dreaded Table 4 for the sidebet, with an edge >6%. Boooo.

So I voted no. I love that game, among all carnival games. I love playing crazy gambler when I push all in (well, 4x) with Q 3 s. They all look at me funny. People play that game so poorly, no wonder they play the trips. Probably has a lower effective edge.

There are very few places that still offer table 1, but if they do, you should play it, as it is the lowest HA bet on that layout. Since it will get lumped in with your other bets on the table, it will also help with your comps. The only places I've ever seen Table 1 were at Bally's Las Vegas (where I think it's been removed), MGM Detroit (where I've been told it was removed), and Southland Park on the "live" table.

I like UTH, but I won't play the game unless the table is either 1 or 2. I'm also very vocal if I see table 4 at a casino, because that's just ridiculous.

I play 1/2 my ante. I hate a push when the dealer doesn't qualify, so I'd rather win 1/2 my play than just push. I don't understand players who put 2x or 3x more on the trips than their ante. You can win the hand yet lose money. To me it doesn't make sense.

Bally's did indeed remove it. Santa Fe Station in North Las Vegas also has paytable #1. I play the sidebet about 1 out of every 25 sessions.
