It's 3 to 2.Maybe you are confusing it with insurance. My friend was there last week.They have Texas holdem bonus and Ultimate Texas holdem.
Yes, I was reading the insurance, which is 2 to 1, and a BlackJack pays 1.5 to 1..
All wagering is in U.S.Dollars here. They are well stocked on the new $100.usd bills, I had not seen them before. They look much more secure than the prior bills especially when laid side by side. One wonders why we never went to a colored bill before.
Was back at it tonight, just back to my hotel it being apx. 10pm..
Went on a run in roulette again. First, there were 9, count them....NINE odd numbers in a row when I approached the table so I began betting even at $100.usd a pop. Got destroyed or shall we just say another two odd before the even finally came. After that, choppy so studied the red/black results and started my system, chicken shit as it is...
Follow the ball.....if red comes up, bet red one unit, red again two units, red again three units (these are $100.usd units mind you, not chicken feed!). Same with black, follow the bouncing ball. I bought in(you have to buy in at the cage BTW, no cash transactions at the table) for $1000.usd and was down apx. $500.usd. Then black came, and came and came....seven black numbers in a row. I "insure" with a $200.usd wager placing $5.usd on the single zero, and $10.usd when I'm pressed up to $300.usd.. Call me stupid, call me an idiot, and I accept I should go up more, but $300.usd is enough to get my attention, being a poorly funded soul. So, bottom line, on that run up on black numbers I cashed out at a cool $2200.usd, winning of course $1200.usd. Not real money to most of you I know but it makes for a find end of the day for me.
I wanted to tip the dealers $25.usd. Nobody seems to tip dealers over here. It's a bit odd. Finally, after two ladies aka leaches offered to give the money directly to the dealer, I found a way to drop it in the box myself, breaking again the "do not enter" the pit rule. But I'm alive and well, back as I say with my money and a nice safe in the room.
From there went to the comp desk and got a nice buffet comp for lunch tomorrow.
Is, in single zero roulette, this wager on the zero when you are pressed up to $200-$300.usd a stupid bet or as I feel, just a little comfort?
In Sic Bo, a Chinese game with three dice shaken, if the dice are cocked, the dealer hits the table causing the cocked die to roll over and the result change, should you make a real issue of it? When I did, mostly because the female dealer couldn't get the die to settle and a male pit boss came over and slammed the table, they were polite but refused to let surveillance look at it saying up to the shift manager and he said "our rule is hit the table". Stacked die voids the game, but I'm referring to a basically balanced cocked die which was not allowed to settle as would be the case in a craps ruling "like melting ice"under it. I wasn't angry, just seeking attention I guess because they listened but did nothing. I asked for gaming control and was directed to the middle of the river where I suspect chum of the worse kind exist.
Onward we go. It's a tough living but someone's got to do it.
