  • In poker if you start with a hand like ace and a 7 off suit you should fold because they are not suited and they are very separate numbers?

    Best answer: I love poker and this is why. Any hand can dominate one another it's just when and how. Ace 7 Off is not to bad of a hand depending of the situation. Let's say everybody folds and its your turn to call pre-flop there's only small blind and BB, if SB folds you're heads up with the BB. You decide if... show more
    Best answer: I love poker and this is why. Any hand can dominate one another it's just when and how.

    Ace 7 Off is not to bad of a hand depending of the situation. Let's say everybody folds and its your turn to call pre-flop there's only small blind and BB, if SB folds you're heads up with the BB. You decide if it's worth it to call and hope that the SB folds. You could even raise and scare him off and make the BB think you have a strong hand and he'll fold as well.

    However if they are still 5 players to go and its pre flop it'll probably be best to fold. But then again if the 5 players have little chips you might be able to push them off with a raise but it's still not a good play statistically.

    Ace 7 could also be bad, you get beat by all Aces with a higher kicker like AK AQ AJ which is common the longer the hand goes since those are good hands.

    You can't always release on separate numbers, either you got it or you don't. Most wins are from pairs.

    In poker it's all situational.

  • Is this a winning baccarat strategy?

    When the shoe starts, the first hand comes out banker or player, whatever it is I bet on the winning side for the second hand and continue, hoping for streaks to happen. I continue betting the same amount (1 unit or minimum bet) until I lose and then I switch to the opposite winning side. To recuperate my losses, I... show more
    When the shoe starts, the first hand comes out banker or player, whatever it is I bet on the winning side for the second hand and continue, hoping for streaks to happen. I continue betting the same amount (1 unit or minimum bet) until I lose and then I switch to the opposite winning side. To recuperate my losses, I double my bet martingale, until I win again, which would require a winning streak of at least two in a row. The key point is that it is based on that I cannot go 7 times without winning. On the seventh bet, I must win or I bust. Now I've observed many shoes and I've never seen it alternating between banker and player more than 6 times, although if it does it is a huge loss, but it is a win a mass majority of the time. Basically, it is a profit of usually more than 30 units per shoe. Is this a good betting strategy because so far I haven't placed any bets but just have been observing shoes online and at real live casinos?

  • How do you claim winnings from a state lottery?

    Best answer: The $3M that they accepted is taxed in that case but the tax will be paid in on year. The $6M would be paid out over several years and taxes would be paid on the amount distributed in each year.

  • What does it mean when a slot machine player says "I'm due"!?

    Best answer: It means he's been playing and losing for a long time, and he's trying to find some way to justify losing even more money. "I'm due" is another way of saying "I can't keep on losing forever!". But obviously you can.

  • Why are casinos sore losers?

    Best answer: They shouldn't have banned you, that sounds overboard, but they do have the right to not let you gamble and not take the risk gambling with you, even if your not playing the system they can still presume that your doing something.

Just like when your walking around at the casino gambling and you start losing a bunch, you have the right to not make another bet and walk away right there. They have entitlements to that right as well

    Best answer: The regulated lotteries, especially the multi-state ones like Powerball & Mega Millions within the US, are completely random & try to be fair as much as possible. In the Powerball drawing, there are 4 sets of balls for each color (red & white) that are randomly selected & periodically inspected (weighed & x-rayed). Balls are replaced if they show enough wear & tear to warrant them.

    The drawings are done at a specific time on their designated dates (Powerball at 10:59 pm Eastern Time / 7:59 pm Pacific on Wednesday & Saturday, Mega Millions at 11:00 pm Eastern / 8:00 pm Pacific). The "cutoff time" for purchases is generally one hour before the drawing (although some states may impose earlier lockout times); any tickets purchased after that time will be for the next drawing & all the equipment that's utilized (the drawing machines & the balls) are locked in a vault when not in use. The results of the drawings are typically aired within 30 minutes of the drawing within the eastern & central time zones (usually somewhere during the evening news).

    While it may take some work to do so, you may be able to attend your state's lottery drawings live. These requests typically need to be made at least 24 hours in advance to be honored. For multi-state lottery drawings, you may need to put your request in well in advance of the desired drawing as it may require more effort to coordinate (as the location of the drawing may be in a different state, per the multi-state commission's wishes). Check your state's lottery commission for more information.


    With that said, the lottery games can be modified over time. As with Powerball & Mega Millions, both games have increased the number of standard (or "white") balls while decreasing the Power / Mega (or "red") balls. This was done to increase the odds of smaller wins (of like $10 or less) while decreasing the odds of the major / jackpot wins, making it more likely for the jackpots to reach the massive figures (of $500 Million or more) before anybody wins it. This could be considered "rigging" the system, but it's in a more passive manner as they're only manipulating the overall odds for all drawings.


    Hope this sheds some light on the subject.
