How do you know that?


IIRC, all 10 cards in VP are "dealt" in advance - the card you receive when you discard a particular card is not affected by what other cards you discarded, or how long you take to push the "draw" button.

Learning to play UTH - then religiously following the basic strategy. Too many bad beats playing 4X bets.

On my very first Craps Game, I decided that I didn't want to play Craps anymore,

you were playing a Craps machine.
They (most I have played and seen) have a specific button for cash out, just like video poker does and slot machine.
a REAL Craps table does NOT have a cash out button. you tell your Dealer you want to cash out and wait for their instructions, knowing where the dice happen to be.
WATCH YOUR HANDS

and I pressed "C and E," Thinking it meant "Cash Out/End Game," turns out that "C and E," is in fact a bet, and I lost.

you had a 1 in 6 chance of winning.
Quote: LusciousSweet2

I remembered being confused and asking a Craps Player why the TITO didn't print out after I pressed the "Cash Out/End Game " button. He gently replied something like "C and E means Craps, and Eleven,"

he told you the truth
CRAPS AND 11 (ELEVEN)

Quote: LusciousSweet2

and a 6 and a 5 came up, so you lost the bet..

6 + 5 = 11 so you should have WON your C&E bet
Quote: LusciousSweet2

Had you gotten 7/11, you would have won $100 on $12 bet."

NO WAY
TOTALLY WRONG.

a C&E bet ONLY wins when the next roll equals 2,3,11 or 12
NEVER wins on a 7 (SEVEN) this is a very POPULAR MISUNDERSTANDING of the rules of the C&E bet. NEVER win on a 7.

lots of MISINFORMATION HERE that really needs to be cleaned up.

many drink too much when and after they play in a casino (especially at craps) and think they know-it-all when they actually just drank too much and "don't know squat."

Some of the misinformation and inconsistency you refute is because LS went back and edited her post. Her original claim was that she pushed a button labeled "C" (not "C&E" or whatever she says now) thinking it meant "CashOut". She didn't go back and fix every related fact in her story, which sounded bogus to start; now that seems even more likely.

The whole point of the story was to start a thread, IMO. It would be best to disregard the nonsense and learn something about the poster, which is what I'm doing.

Not in Nevada.
6. Additionally, video poker games must not determine replacement cards prior to the player
selecting hold cards and initiating a draw.

Thanks. I meant to say this, but didn't know there was a state regulation for it. Great reference!

I have been told, by someone who programs such things, that the remaining deck (only one) cycles randomly, endlessly after the deal, until holds are selected, then cards are chosen at the instant the "draw" is pushed. This would seem to confirm that's the correct and legal way to program it.

Playing an old VP machine, I didn't notice I played a partial bet by accident on a few coins bet on the last bet before the credits ran out, but the bad part was after I reloaded cash, I forgot to hit max best and hit a RF with only a partial bet a little while later.

And what have we learned so far?

I am learning that she has a lot in common with another poster who tended to lots of miss information as well.
