I'd be interested in knowing what the house edge is set at for various games at the Wizard Casino.



All are under 1%.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

That's how I did it too.

Bonus question: Youíve waited one minute at the river dragon slots and no waitress has shown up. Now whatís the probability that Amy shows up first?
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Amy: 63.89%
Betty: 22.22%
Cathy: 13.89%

Same problem, except Amy shows up every 2 minutes, Betty every 4, and Cathy every 6.
