I have some Pharaoh's Fortune Slot machine Symbols questions. The Symbols relate to Ancient Egypt, but I am confused by certain Symbols. The blue Dog is Anubis, right?!The Dog sitting on the Throne also looks like Anubis. Who is the symbol that looks like a really magnificent bird spreading its wings? Is this Ra? Is this Isis? I think the Owl is Osisis, right? I'm assuming that The people who look absolutely shocked when you get a line win with them(Really subliminal messaging there, ;) they look shocked because the head covering is removed, leaving them bald as they look at one another's bald head, LMAO)are Pharaohs or just regular Peasants.

Why would anyone assume a 10 is underneath when there are only FOUR ten value cards in a deck(10, J, Q, K)? Meanwhile you have NINE other different denominations in the same deck(A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). So all the players ASSUMING a ten value card is underneath is WRONG and this is why the EZ bust side bet is in my opinion one of the smartest side bets ever created by the casino.

Theres just a huge misconception about bust rates and always assuming a 10 and thinking a 2,3,4,5,6 are BUST CARDS. None of those upcards will ever bust more than a 43% rate with the dealer 5 being the players best chance at close to 43% with the dealer 6 slightly behind on a stand 17 game, but if its a soft 17 game, the 6 becomes the highest % to bust at roughly the same rate. Not to mention the average dealer bust rate is around 28% for a stand 17 game and i believe 29% for a soft 17 game. EVEN with a high true count of +5, the bust rates for a 5 or 6 only go to 46 to 47% or so for an upcard of 5 and 6.

The correct theoretical way to use and learn a basic strategy chart is to ASSUME a TOTAL COMBINATION of 10 such as a combination total of 6+4 or 2+8 or even a face card or ten card. So even though people have the right idea of assuming a 10, they're using it the wrong way with erroneous logic because all that logic does is create a false illusion about the game and leave you vulnerable to a side bet like EZ bust thinking the dealer will bust at a 50.01% rate or higher which is patently false.


Really? So dealer has a 2 thru 6 up card and the player should assume a total of ten.
So then they will hit all their 12 through 16s ,well that's wrong.Oh and they better not double their 9 or 10 against any upcard since u assume a total of 10.
We all know that assuming a 10 in the hole isn't correct but for a total novice it sends them in somewhat the right direction.
Obviously if they have any interest they can learn basic strategy or at least simplified basic.

Gambling game pronunciation question time! My local Radio station Hard Rock Casino commercial announcer says,"Hard Rock Casino offers the hottest table games such as Baccaraw!" (Baccarat.) I thought I was pronounced Baccarat(The last syllable being pronounced like the Rodent animal that crawls around people's houses, not Baccaraw, the last syllable being pronounced like not cooking a food before you eat it). Hmm.

Its really pronounced rat like the rodent.That's how the game got its name,years ago in the slums of Paris there were a lot of rats ,so people would catch them ,and put numbers on their backs and let them race around a track,gamblers would back a rat ie.bet on a rat,eventually the name became baccarat .so its pronounced back a rat.:)

So, the commercial announcer was right. :) In my defense, I only saw it WRITTEN, never spoken before I heard the radio commercial, so I was reading it as if it were pronounced in the English way. :) Thank you for the clarification. :)
