Playing different games can be a style of hedging your bets.
Craps for most players is a stand up game so I play slots to sit down or to speak to companions. BJ is always a diversion for me.
Yet all can be profitable from time to time.
It's a state law. Valley Forge is a mini casino. It's required to charge for admission, except for hotel guests and same-day conference goers. You should have received a $10 food voucher with your $10 paid admission (they can't make the admission free, but they can give a gift card out). I think their slots are a little tight. VP isn't great, either. Tables are pretty fair, though. good PA BJ rules, reasonable paytables on other games, etc.
Rdw is right. It's part of the bargain even allowing them to have a casino. It is like a racino not having races, although that's pretty much going to happen. I suppose there isn't a real way to force the resort to stay as a resort and not just pack it in and only remain as a casino.
They don't make money on the admission fees, its just a legal loophole, similar to using ink on your wrist. You paid ten dollars and you got some sort of coupon book, its a wash.
The slot machines are probably not server run even though the casino is new. If the machines have their chips they are probably the same chips that would be used in Vegas or any other market. Why would a casino install looser chips just because there is a legally mandated rigamarole going on at the entrance door that really doesn't generate any revenue.
I THINK IT NOT RIGHT!
When it comes to slot machines I would want Vegas or Biloxi due to strong enforcement mechanisms. At Indian casinos, you get a 'rubber stamp' from some 'gaming commission' that exists largely as a rubber stamp. No information on slot and no enforcement mechanism.
Sure you could send me a free ticket to an Indian casino, but otherwise: no way.
i DON'T RECALL ANY DIFFERENCES IN THE SLOT MACHINES
My interpretation of 'risk intelligence' is an ability to almost unconsciously assess and get a reasonably accurate measure of the risk that a certain proposition presents to you, especially based on experience. This is much like the way ants can do trigonometry and work out routes and directions without actually understanding mathematics. Since life is one risk after another and this risk intelligence would tend to be favourable, it's not unreasonable to believe in it as a kind of intuitive skill. We've all at some point said 'I saw that coming' and some of us foresee obvious non-random events in the future, where less 'tuned in' folks are blind.
However, taken in the context of your other post, I suspect that you believe that this intuition extends to an ability to foresee trends, runs and streaks in a game of chance. I assert that 'risk intelligence' as described in that video is not attempting to describe that and further, that no amount of such intuition can predict random events in the future. If the video does indeed suggest such a facet of 'risk intelligence' then I assert that it's plain wrong.
I disagree with his 'expert gamblers do it for the thrill'. Sure they want to win but its a matter of money, not just a 'win'.
OnceDear I do understand you point of view its hard to argue a point in which there is not absolute proof in a physical sense. But when you speak of intuition and risk intelligence that is not something tangible that we measure. We can only measure the outcomes of the choices that make by seeing trends and patterns. Everything in life has a pattern and it is no different than gambling. Even slots machines have cycles, patterns, and trends in which is not so obvious to the casual player. When you have practiced any one thing for long enough you get a sense for how to perform without having to put so much effort into the tasks.
definitally the best abillity someone could have
Can you lose the bug...I suspect not. We can hopefully get a grip on our habit and mitigate the risks and costs to fit within an an 'entertainment budget' But to be sure, many of us are at a real and dangerous risk of spiralling to oblivion.
Now, what's this nonsense about developing intuition for a game? 😀
You can develop intuition with gambling? I still can't teach a sure method at this point but I am working on it everyday for everyone to follow to increase their odds of winning! Its not nonsense its just something that can't be proven at this time. Just like you breath air but can't see it but its there right!
Nice touch. Thanks for sharing
Maybe remove the triggers that induce regrettable actions. For me, I went to the track without smokes, used a nicotine lozenge and didn't feel the same feelings, for lack of better words. I'm not going to smoke at the casino anymore. I'll smoke elsewhere but not on the grounds.
Im afraid no.
i have experienced this kind of bug. it was really irritating
