In Las Vegas high income tip earning jobs are one of the reasons the education system here is rated so low. So many kids are dropping out of high school because the tip earning jobs pay so much and don't require a HS diploma.

A 17 year old kid can easily get a job earning $40k-$50k valet parking cars in Las Vegas. If he stays in the business he will be making $60k-$70k in 10 years. I know, I have a step son in that position.



I also think there are many other reasons the education system there is rated so low, but under the new rules, I'll pretty much stop at this point.

Schools in Henderson are above average in everything but graduation rate. It's keeping them in school when recruiters are offering kids crazy money that is challenging.

One of my neighbors does something for the Clark County school system. We were talking one day and he told me about the drop out problem in Henderson. Between the boys leaving for casinos and girls leaving to dance.....
Contrast that with Bisbee where I have sixty plus applications for four part time jobs.



What do make HS dropouts do for casinos? Leaving for casinos? Am I missing something? What are they doing? I'm confused.

Ughhhhh...I apologize. I had a major reading comprehension fail. I read it as you suggested you should tip them based on what they actually make, not what you THINK they should make. So ignore the rest of my post other than the Linq, Harrah's, Casino Royale thing, which you already fixed.

Thank you, and no problem, I'm glad we could clear that up. BTW, you might not have seen my separate Tipping Guide page, where I say, "I'm a bit of a communist when I tip. If I see that a dealer is making $30/hr. from other people overtipping, I might not tip at all, even if it's at the Bellagio and I'm betting black. But at a low-end casino like the El Cortez where dealers make as little as $88 a day, I might tip twice what I normally do even if I'm betting red. A typical dealer at the El Cortez needs my $10/hr. more than a typical dealer at the Bellagio needs my $5/hr."

Perhaps the average age for a high school graduate in Las Vegas is 22 and they drop out at 21 to get those wonderful Casino jobs. 😁

REALLY?

I have no idea if this is true or not but I would be willing to bet one has to be at least 18. I can't even imagine an insurance company allowing this. That sounds like lawsuit City if something bad were to happen.

I am not saying that they are dropping out to go directly to the casinos. The point is they know they don't need a diploma to make a middle class living in Las Vegas.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

There are hundreds of jobs in casinos one needs to be 18 to work. Most jobs on the casino floor require you to be 21, but plenty of support jobs require you to be 18. I've met high school kids that work in the Cosmo warehouse off of Polaris.

But he's not facilitating a political argument by using the word in this context. It would be akin to someone saying, "I'm a capitalist when I tip. The harder they work, the more they get." That statement isn't arguing the merits of doing it that way. If people would get suspended for statements like this, then we're over policing this thing.

I just added a Roulette Calculator to Easy Vegas. It's in beta, so there's a good chance something doesn't work right, if not the math then the interface. Feel free to bang on it and see if you can get it to break.

I know it doesn't calculate every conceivable thing someone might want an answer about, so there's no need to suggest other calculations; I have a laundry list of things to add to the calculator already if I can find the time.

Interesting request.
Nice calculator, I agree.

I found 2 errors just looking (not banging yet)
#1) avg number of uniques 37 numbers/20 spins = 15.6097 my calculation (15.62 fast sim)
THE calculator shows 9.7
note:
a formula found at math.stackexchange.com is just wrong as are many others I found there
so I did my own using a Markov chain.
It can be done easily in Excel using (binomial probability function) this
37-(BINOMDIST(0,20,1/37,FALSE)*37) = 15.6097
pari/gp code (has the formula)
spins=20;
numbers=37;
\\do not change below
k=0;\\successes
p=1/numbers;
a=binomial(spins,k)*p^k*(1-p)^(spins-k);\\formula binomial probability

Thank you, 7craps, this is extremely helpful!

I actually forgot to code in the "Avg. number of unique hits" case, so the code was defaulting to another case (probably the avg. number of hits of an even-money bet). I just coded it in, using your formula. And good catch on "at least 1 unique" needing to show 100%. Incidentally, I had already trapped other cases, so that <0.01 is reported as such (rather than rounding down to zero), and >99.9% is reported as such (rather than rounding up to 100%, except when the answer truly is 100%).

I still have not got back to the calculator as the Arizona/Hawaii game is STILL going
45-35. 5 minutes left in game. I took Hawaii. should have taken the over.
I just looked at the Calc and something still is not right, but will look closer tomorrow.

Should work on older browsers. (But not Netscape Navigator 1 from 1995; I don't know exactly where the cutoff is where it won't work any more.). You do have to have Javascript on, no way around that. What tall, narrow boxes are you talking about? And what OS/browser version are you using?

ultimate roulette calculator

probability of hitting a specific number [x] times in a row.

That 'x' box should open up as a tall narrow box with 1,2,3,4, etc. in it, but instead is totally blank.

I got me a Dell Inspiron 15 windows something and internet explorer 10?

I'm afraid I don't have a PC to test it, and MS discontinued IE for the Mac long before they got to version 10.

IE10 is 7 years old. Microsoft replaced it with IE 11 in 2013, then with a totally new browser (Microsoft Edge) in 2015. IE market share for versions 10 and 11 *combined* is only 5%. I would suggest you upgrade to MS Edge, but a better solution would be to install Chrome, Safari, or Firefox instead. Microsoft has a long history of putting out crappy, incompatible browsers, and although the latest versions aren't as lousy as earlier versions, I distrust them just because of their reputation. It's not a coincidence that the error report you just gave me was for IE. The calculator works fine in the three major browsers, and tellingly, I didn't have to put in any special code to get it to work on any of those browsers.

But I'll make you a deal: If you really want to stick with MS for some reason, install the latest MS Edge and see if you have the same problem. If you do, I'll buy a PC laptop so I can troubleshoot it.

upgrade? Install?
I had a recent episode involving the loss of 110 pounds and a crisis of some magnitude involving persistent loss of cerebral spinal fluid and lymph fluid. i'm trying to bounce back from the mental effects but I live in the county poorhouse at an even higher rent than before. I have friends who are helping me re-learn rules for playing blackjack and relearning Ultra-Basic Strategy, because social workers won't pay for a tutor for anything related to gambling. It took me three weeks to relearn how to read a book during which I covered up the deficit by just carrying one around with me.
Even on the computer that I have, I cant recall how to invoke certain programs or how to highlight text for copying or how to find stuff I know is stored on the drives.
so financially upgrading anything is unlikely and even if I could afford new software I probably cant learn it yet.

Wow, I'm very sorry to hear about your troubles. I can't imagine how difficult that must be.

To be clear, all web browsers are free, and always have been. So it wouldn't cost you anything to download and install a better browser, but given your recent challenges, I'll understand if it's something you'd rather not bother with right now.

ultimate roulette calculator

probability of hitting a specific number [x] times in a row.

That 'x' box should open up as a tall narrow box with 1,2,3,4, etc. in it, but instead is totally blank.

well known IE bug. Has something to do when the width (or height) of the drop down box not being specified, IIRC.
IE sucks

Google Chrome can download to Win 10 with no problem and import your IE bookmarks if that matters.
I did that years ago and happy I did.
The only reason why IE was popular in the 1st place was because it was FREE and knocked out the competition when others charged for their browser.
It really was/is a horrible browser.

And good catch on "at least 1 unique" needing to show 100%.

at least
9 unique numbers over 10 spins (38 slots) should be about 0.6972321476726648, The calc still shows 100%.
I have not looked at your code.

'at least' would be the sum of exactly X or more
I do not know of a simple formula for that.
added: or one could for 'at least' 9 subtract from 1 '8 or less'

exactly 9 unique numbers over 10 spins should be 0.4239925222333773
The calc shows 32%.

that should be enough for now as i am still getting over the win by Hawaii last night (NCAAF)

I have not looked at your code.

'at least' would be the sum of exactly X or more
I do not know of a simple formula for that.

looking here: https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/437172/probability-of-number-of-unique-numbers-in-37-roulette-wheel-spins

Now, I do know of a simple formula for that.

I have the formulas working (They are inclusion/exclusion)
The one post has 2 different ways of doing the same thing, I have just worked with the first.

'at least' X uniques in N spins
pari/gp code
s=10;\\spins
u=9;\\uniques
n=38;\\number of numbers
a=sum(k=0,n,((-1)^(k+u-n)*\
binomial(k-1,n-u)*binomial(n,k)*(n-k)^s)/n^s);
aDec=1.*a;
a
aDec

returns: 0.69723214767266493262987345154757660700

'at least' X uniques in N spins formula: sum(k=0,n,((-1)^(k+u-n)*binomial(k-1,n-u)*binomial(n,k)*(n-k)^s)/n^s)
binomial() is the number of combinations


added: the formula for the probability of exactly X uniques would be
sum(k=0,n,((-1)^(k+u-n)*binomial(k,n-u)*binomial(n,k)*(n-k)^s)/n^s)

pari/gp code
s=20;\\spins
u=15;\\uniques
n=37;\\number of numbers
a=sum(k=0,n,((-1)^(k+u-n)*\
binomial(k,n-u)*binomial(n,k)*(n-k)^s)/n^s);
aDec=1.*a;
a1chanceIn=1/aDec;
a
aDec
a1chanceIn

this should help The calc out

7craps, thank you very much for your continued help!

I found the typo in my code. After I'd verified that my test case got the right answer using hard-coded values, I changed all the hard-coded values to variables, except one. So my test case continued to get the right answer even with the faulty formula, because the value for the test case was hard-coded. The formula failed as soon as the inputs were changed, as with your 9 in 10 example. Anyway, I changed the last value to a variable, and it seems to work now, getting 70% (rounded) for your test case.

With any luck, that's the last bug, but I won't be surprised if there are more.

Would you like a thank-you credit on the calculator page, and if so, what name should I use?

I repeat my invitation for anyone reading this to bang on the calculator and see if you can get it to break (either a wrong answer, or an interface problem).

I can play with it more tonight. Looks good so far.

I have yet to look at your javascript code to see how you did all this and that would be nice to see it and understand it for myself. You might scramble it (I think that is common these days), that is ok too.

I wasn't planning on adding more features b/c I've already got tons of ideas and I need to focus on other work now, but this one was really interesting so I went ahead and added it now. But this has to be the last one for a long while. Thank you for providing the formula and test cases.

Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? I don't know, but I didn't feel especially flattered when I ran across this eBook being sold on Amazon which is comprised almost entirely of articles lifted word-for-word from Easy Vegas.

BTW, Easy Vegas still has a theme song.

It's not a humor site per se, but it's a site with a sense of humor. Look at the original Cheapo Vegas and Vital Vegas, those sites aren't "humor sites", but they had/have a *great* sense of humor. I'm not as funny as those guys so I can't compete on that basis, although I do take a stab at injecting some humor into an article every once in a while.

Even the most polite and sane person will walk away from those sites with the biggest case of WTF the world has ever known.
I actually was looking for the manifesto. It is an unbelievable collection of nonsense.

Take for example these quotes in air travel

"A single roundtrip flight to Asia generates as much pollution as your car does for a whole year.
A single coast to coast roundtrip flight is equivalent to driving the average car 375 miles a month for a whole year.
Air travel is particularly damaging because of various factors related to the planes being up in the sky, vs. pollution which happens on the ground."

Usually on the trip to Asia there are hundreds of others along for the ride. So what's the problem? I don't know to many people that drive the equivalent of 100's of trips to Asia annually. Sounds like a win to fly.
If driving my car 4500 miles generated the same emissions as flying 6000 miles r/t coast to coast aren't I being environmentally conscious by flying?

Then he goes on to promoting travelling by cargo ship.....lol
You really can't make this stuff up. 15 cargo ships pollute more than all the entire cars in the world combined.
