blackjack betting boxes

What's better for the house (casino) allowing players to bet on two boxes or three boxes?


kbrsoftech Apr 17, 2023

In blackjack, players often place their bets by putting chips in designated areas on the table called "betting boxes." These betting boxes are usually located in front of each player's position at the table and are marked with the minimum and maximum bets allowed for that particular table.

There are typically several betting boxes on a blackjack table, and players can place their bets in one or more boxes, depending on the specific rules of the game and the player's strategy.

In addition to the standard betting boxes, some blackjack tables may also offer special side bet options, such as "insurance" or "perfect pairs." These side bets typically have their own designated betting boxes and payout schedules.

It's important to note that players should always be aware of the minimum and maximum bets allowed at the table and should only place bets that they can afford to lose. Additionally, players should always follow basic blackjack strategy and make informed decisions about when to hit, stand, double down, or split their cards, based on the dealer's up card and the player's own hand.

This is somewhat more complicated than it appears, and would probably be better answered in the forum.

swap card in 5 card poker

In a previous casino that I visit, they offered the option to the player to swap one card by placing the equal amount of your ANTE wager.
What’s the house advantage or game odd by offering this side kick.
Thanks in advance !!

I think the game you saw is called Oasis Poker. See this page: Oasis Poker. House advantage is about 1.0%

what its the real cost of $5 demo slot ticket used for promotional purpose..?

i was in a casino that they gave the hotel guest $5 DEMO slot ticket, whats the impact of this promotion in the slot hold percentage ? can you actually control this promotion so only one person plays only one ticket.

A $5 freeplay voucher is worth about $4.50 in cash. The slot machine holds about 10% of the play on this ticket just like it does on any other plays. Usually, the issuance of the tickets is somewhat tightly controlled. So only one ticket is released per hotel reservation. That being the case, it doesn't really matter who plays what tickets.
