• What exactly are Odds when referring to Gambling?

    Best answer: In betting the term "odds" is used two different ways. the "odds of winning" a particular amount and the "payout odds" which indicates how much you are paid if you win. When the word "odds" is used by itself it usually, but not always, means the "odds of winning".

    The "payout odds" or simply "payout" is how much you get paid if you win. For example, if the payout odds are "2 to 1" you get paid twice your bet if you win plus you keep the amount you bet. If you make a bet where you do not get the amount you bet back and you get paid twice your bet the payout odds would be "2 for 1". Payout odds of "2 to 1" and "3 for 1" are the same, either way you end up with three times the amount you bet.

    <<<The odds of hitting 10/10 numbers in keno is 1 in 1,000,000.>>>

    In keno the odds of winning with 10 out of 10 numbers is much less than 1 in 1,000,000. At some casinos the payout may be 1,000,000 for 1, but certainly not at all casinos.

  • If I go to the casino with a group of people and win do I have to share my winnings? Am I wrong if I choose not to share?

    Best answer: No of course you don't have to share your winnings. If they group agrees to share their winnings then they should agree to share their loss. If everyone put their money in a pile and it was spread out evenly between all the people then yes the winnings should be shared but if you're gambling with your own... show more
    Best answer: No of course you don't have to share your winnings. If they group agrees to share their winnings then they should agree to share their loss. If everyone put their money in a pile and it was spread out evenly between all the people then yes the winnings should be shared but if you're gambling with your own money you are taking the chance and they should not be rewarded. If they have that attitude then it's best if you go alone. If you really want to be a winner, stay home. BTW if you don't want to share your winnings you cannot accept a share of anyone else's winnings.

  • Would you break up with your boyfriend if he gambled away $4,000?

    Best answer: IMHO the first thing you need to do is protect yourself financially.

    Best answer: IMHO the first thing you need to do is protect yourself financially. That includes withdrawing most of the cash in you joint savings and putting the money in an account in your name, cancelling any joint credit cards, and taking control of your finances as a couple.

    I am guessing that you have a serious relationship if you have joint accounts, and it is something you would rather preserve. If so, you need to have a serious discussion with him and see if he is willing to give up gambling entirely or, at a minimum, accept a fixed limit on how much he will allow himself to lose per month.

    I am guessing that he is a problem gambler, but not a serious compulsive gambler (gambling addict) at this point. A gambling addict can lose all the money available to him, and more, in a single session at a casino. However, a problem gambler can become a gambling addict, so as long as he keeps gambling you need to be wary.

    If he does not respect your concerns, or you are not willing to undertake the task of helping him control his gambling, it is probably time to break up. You need to protect yourself emotionally as well as financially. (If he is prone to violent acts, protecting yourself physically needs to be your primary consideration.)

  • How do you tell if a slot machine is loose or tight at the moment?

    Best answer: With some machines, if you look through clear parts of the front at the appropriate angle, you may be able to see one or more of the coin tubes. The machine will only pay out well if they are full; if they are not then it's not going to pay for some time. (No idea on newer machines but that is valid on some... show more
    Best answer: With some machines, if you look through clear parts of the front at the appropriate angle, you may be able to see one or more of the coin tubes.

    The machine will only pay out well if they are full; if they are not then it's not going to pay for some time.

    (No idea on newer machines but that is valid on some types I've seen in the UK).


    Other than that there is absolutely no visible sign or indication to a player.

  • SLOT MACHINE QUESTION: Is it true that the smaller you bet, the more profit you actually make?

    Best answer: The smaller you bet, the less you lose, and losing a small amount is "more profit" than losing a bigger amount because in math, -10 > -100. So yes it's true in that sense.
