1. there's a hanging text comment at about 33:48, right after the craps section. It's about resplitting aces, so I don't think it goes there.



I'd be happy if I need to fix one only. It is a pain with this new software controlling exactly where they go, moving them, and getting rid of short ones. There's probably a better way than how I do it, which I need to figure out.

I have played a tremendous amount of UTH over the last 11 years. I have gotten 78 straight flushes over that time. This may be on the borderline but I do not think a dealer can deal this game for 8 hours without making payout errors. This makes the game odds even better. Does anyone else agree with this and does this happen in other games? I can pretty much say it does not happen in BJ but I do not know about other games.



That's getting off topic, but I agree that payout errors are still fairly common and probably more than outweigh the house edge, putting any moral issues aside.

11 straight flushes IS a lot. I think I've seen two only, both to the dealer.

This is why most places have dealers rotate after 30 minutes. My guess is, ones that don't rotate do it to keep less experienced/bad dealers off the tougher games. Errors happen on all games, including blackjack. But they do happen more frequently on the 5 card poker based games.

getting back to the video, I remember a moment in some thing we were watching on TV with family, a lot of female relatives present, and it involved new nuns somehow. And the mother superior said these new nuns had to learn "custody of the eyes" ... she meant if you didn't want men to think you were interested in them, a woman had to control her eyes, her gaze

Well, I thought this was funny for some reason but looked around the room and saw that all the women were shaking their heads "yes" ... they had to learn this too I guess

but it occurs to me that the Wizard had to have custody of the eyes making this video too, but with a very different meaning!!!

I'm not sure what software you use, but it might be possible to get a frequent YouTube poster to help. Slotlady (Sarah) is super sweet, in Vegas often, and a dormant member here. NG slot (Narek, though I think he goes by NG) is a great guy and he's also often in vegas. You've used his videos on the advantage slot threads. Maybe one of them could give some advice.

Yes, thanks, I try. It was hard to keep a straight face when Angela made a comment towards the end about having a kitty to pet at the table.

REALISM should be paramount. No cross town treks, no high limit rooms, no sole decision-maker listings. it shouldn't be best games in vegas but best reasonably available games in vegas for a group of four friends from out of town.

Fiends who live in vegas can be a bit less exclusive and might choose an outlier casino, but nothing too extreme or too high in limits.

Here is a corrected version.

Actually, in Craps the house edge is (140/99)% and (15/11)%. It's the Element of Risk that goes down to (140/99)/(34/9) = 70/187 = 0.37% and 15/11/5 = 3/11 = 0.27%. The Odds bet may be the only one and always available, making the game essentially played in 2 phases, but that doesn't change the general rule.

9/6 JorB has RTP 99.54% and house edge 100 minus that, or 0.46%. I think it's a human error. Unless it's about your own simple strategy, but that's unclear.
