Question for the show: have you come out ahead in your "no jackpot winner in Powerball" wagers?
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Do you have any superstitions around gambling or otherwise, which you observe even though you realize they are irrational?
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

If you were to rearrange US currency to match the casino system, who would you put on the $25 bill.

I haven't kept good track, but think I'm a little down.

Tiger Split Baccarat sounds interesting. I'm guessing you had some fun designing the house way. Is this the table for it?



[edit] Also, why no OMBC video?

Also, would you consider this video to be evidence of mild superstition (per unJon's question)? Or would you say you were merely rooting for an outcome and playing the part of a Price Is Right contestant?

Yes, that is the table. It was indeed fun fine tuning the rules and house way for the game.

I hate to ask, but what does OMBC stand for?

That is a good one! Yes, I would say I was just acting like a TPIR contestant. The video would have been no fun if I just stood there. I've been watching TPIR for about 45 years (man I'm old) and when I had a chance to spin that wheel, of course I was going to enjoy the experience.
