I dont play trips. But recommend doing so for players who do not how to play using the basic strategy. For the players who know how to play, they essentially are betting 4X preflop about 40% of their hands, equivalent to trips straight payoff.

I like the trips bet for the fun factor.
also, its fun getting paid when there's a flush on the board and neither you nor the dealer has a suit to that flush.

The best paytable I've seen in the last year is Harrah's Gulf Coast (Biloxi) with 9/7/4 (FH/FL/ST). I haven't looked at WoO to know which is the .9. Everywhere else I'm playing, it's either 8/7/4 or 8/6/5. I think 8/6/5 is at IP Biloxi fwiw. ( I don't care from one to the next - if I'm playing UTH, I'm playing Trips for the table minimum.)

Edit: ok, I looked. Harrah's Gulf Coast for the .9 paytable.

thx.
do you know if any casino in atlantic city has the .9% trips bet?

Do you play perfect strategy?

well, I play the strat on WoO page.
4x: any pair 33+, any ace, k2-4s, k5+, q6-7s, q8+, j8-9s, j10
2x: any pair 33+, any 2 pair if one of the pairs is in your hand (including 22), 4 to flush if you also have 10+ (or if the flush card is 10+?)
1x: any pair, 20 outs or less for the dealer

(this is from memory and not from the cheat sheet I bring to the table)

Why do you ask?

Pretty rare to find a player who knows when to bet 4X preflop. By doing so, I find it unnecessary to place a dark side bet trying to get at least 3:1 since you're getting a guaranteed 4X if you win on a hand you are most likely going in as the favorite. . And if you dont hit your side bet, then you essentially turned your 4 X bet into a 3X preflop bet if you win.

But for players who like to check it down until they pair up, they minimize their losses in the event the hand losses by offsetting their trips bet.

If you play Trips, at what ratio to your Ante do you recommend? Half? Same? Assuming a full pay table it's a better bet than most in the casino so why not? Sometimes it wins big and sometimes it hedges a bad beat although it often just seems like a tax on the winnings of the main game.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I like to play $10 Ante and $5 trips. It helps smooth the Trips drain on my br. I'm usually not playing above that level, though I have. It seems to help during the bad runs of cards.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Why not save your trips money and play VP? Better payoffs.

the .9% trips bet is equal or better than the vp at the 3 caesars atlantic city with normal $10coin-in per tier point.
best = 9/7 db (99.1%)

even if it's 1.9%, i'll probably start playing it just for the initial rating by the pitboss then stop when he walks away.
