How to Prolong your Superior Casino Winning Streak

April 6th, 2014

If you happen to be playing Superior Casino games and your session has turned into a winning streak, then of course you’re going to want to prolong it as much as you can, right? First off, players must understand that winning streaks, just as much as losing streaks, are difficult to manipulate since these patterns are impossible to predict.

When you hit the spin button on one of our fantastic online fruit machines you might land a winning combination that will pay out the very profitable free spins round. When the round is over and you hit the spin button again, you might also be so lucky as to land the free spins round once again! However, this is merely associated with the Random Number Generator which makes sure that the outcome of every single spin is completely fair and can not be predetermined. The same goes for all of our online casino games. While it’s absolutely true that it’s quit possible to get on a juicy winning streak, your chances of winning are going to be the same every session.

However, there are a few things that players can do in order to extend their winning streak:

Granted, while most of the players that join Superior Casino will be mostly drawn to our online fruit machine selection and the outcome of these games is mainly based on luck, players can still learn how to manage their bankroll and time in order to further their winning streaks. When it comes to games like Craps, Poker or Blackjack – in other words, tables games – players need to learn and develop a winning strategy that will keep them winning for much longer. Remaining focused will ultimately work in the players’ favor and increase the chances of a winning streak continuing.

Remember that even though you happen to be on a winning streak this does not guarantee that your next bet will also make you a winner. Your winning streak will end eventually and you have to be really careful not to lose all your money in one sitting. Don’t alter your usual betting patterns simply because you’ve been winning for a few hours.

BLACKJACK SCHOOL – 10 vs. A

June 11th, 2008

Charles Jay’s
BLACKJACK SCHOOL
Designed to help you play a better game

WHAT DO YOU DO?
10 vs. A

THE SETUP: You’re dug in at a multiple deck blackjack game, and the dealer gives you a seven and a three, which comprise a two card total of 10. This isn’t too bad, and you are congratulating yourself for the good luck, not to mention thinking about the kind of money you’ll make by doubling. But wait! the dealer then gives himself (or herself, as the case may be) an Ace, and all of a sudden the anxiety is rushing through your system. Hmmm, you’re saying to yourself, I know I can double against real weak cards when I have a total of ten, but what happens when it looks as if the dealer might actually have an advantage over me? Do I really want to put MORE money on the table?

To perhaps compound your confusion, the dealer then checks underneath, and discovers that there is no two-card blackjack (which would have happened with a ten-value card), so at this point you have to go ahead with the hand. Your choice is basically between hitting and doubling down.

So….

What do you do?

CJ’S WAY: The best percentage play here is to HIT the hand.

WHY WE DO IT: I don’t know if it’s tempting or not, but you may be thinking about the double here, and see some kind of opportunity; since we know the dealer does not have a blackjack, the best he or she can have is a two-card total of 20, and more likely even less than that. If you take a double here, you are going to be getting very close to an even proposition, though it will place you slightly on the negative side. Hitting on the 10 actually produces better results; in fact, you will win about 47.5% of the time, pushing (tying) at a 13.5% clip, and turn up 39% losers. There is obviously value in holding off on that double. The lesson learned here is that even though having 10 normally makes it opportune to double, there is a time and a place to do it, and this is NOT that time and place, not if the object of your game is to turn a negative into a positive, which is exactly what we get the chance to do.

BLACKJACK SCHOOL – 10,10 vs. 5

June 4th, 2008

BLACKJACK SCHOOL
Designed to help you play a better game

WHAT DO YOU DO?
10,10 vs. 5

THE SETUP: You’ve sat down and get yourself involved in a multiple deck game where Doubling-down after split (also known as DDAS) is one of the available options. You’re dealt a pair of cards with ten value (either 10, J, Q or K), and the dealer flips over a five, which is commonly known as a “stiff” card. Your eyes pop out of your head. “Wow,” you say to yourself, “Here’s an opportunity to get a lot of money on the table against this horrible card. How could I possibly pass up on that?” You have a real temptation to put the maximum amount of chips on the table, in an effort to capitalize on the situation. Should you?

So…..

What do you do?

CJ’S WAY: Put your eyes back into your head. This is a scenario where you could very easily shoot yourself in the foot by doing the wrong thing. Do not flip the switch. Do not take more chips out. Do not pass “Go.” Do not try to collect $200. Wait a minute, I’m getting carried away with myself……You get the idea. Stay right where you are.

WHY WE DO IT: If you do what I suggest, and hold back from splitting this hand up, you are going to win about 78% of the time, compared to losing 11% of the time. Your positive expectations go way, way down when you vary from that. Even when the DDAS option is open to you, you will suffer 34% losses when you split these cards up. When you stand with 20 you are going to gain approximately 13%. As you should know by now, we are looking for the highest percentage play for each situation. Therefore, there is no plausible reason to do anything else than that which yields the best value.

Splitting tens against a five can be advantageous if you are counting cards and are in a situation where you can implement that practice. However, if you are a Basic Strategy player, you must operate on the principle that breaking up winning hands is not a winning policy. It will not be often that you find relatively opportunities to win hands. When they are laid out before you, you can’t blow the chance!

(Play blackjack, along with dozens and dozens of other casino games, at Superior Casino. It’s a superior experience!)

AVOIDING THOSE PSYCHOLOGICAL PITFALLS

May 7th, 2008

AVOIDING THOSE PSYCHOLOGICAL PITFALLS
By Charles Jay

Allow me to ask these questions of you, the recreational blackjack player:

– Do you feel worse when you bust than when you lose out to a better hand on the part of the dealer?

– Do you stand on hard totals of 12-16 because you want to hold onto your chances of winning until the dealer plays out his hand?

– Are you of the belief that luck runs in streaks, and if so, do you usually increase bets after wins and decrease after losses?

– Are you conditioned to playing “hunches”, depending on which cards you’ve previously been dealt?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, read on, because this is of particular interest to you.

One day at the library I was up in the “stacks,” so to speak, and happened to come across a past issue of Psychology Today (Oct. 1985). And I noticed it contained an article dealing with the behavior of players at the blackjack table, and how certain psychological quirks had a tendency to affect their behavior and performance when playing this casino game.

There is a tremendous psychological element to blackjack, and it is important to look at that angle, since customarily players not only have to execute betting decisions but playing decisions as well during the course of a session. A lot of players enjoy blackjack more than roulette, baccarat, or craps in that they feel more of a sense of control (which is not an ‘illusion’ as is referred to in the article), and they have the ability to vary their play using certain options as allowed for in the rules. That indeed is a potential advantage to blackjack, since the house’s edge, or lack of it, is very much dependent on the player’s level of skill. The pitfalls, if one falls into them, have the potential effect of diminishing the skill level of the player, and also serve to put up barriers preventing them from being able to digest the strategy that can ultimately bring the greatest chance for long-term return.

One of the bigger problems happens when it comes to playing the hard totals of 12 through 16. The research that was done for the article indicates that players, even if they know a Basic Strategy, very often fail to hit their hand in accordance with it because they fear busting out before the dealer has an opportunity to play his hand out. There are a couple of principal reasons for this. One is that the player’s mindset is that it is worse to bust than to hold out and lose to the dealer’s better hand, since the dealer’s draw is something that is completely out of the player’s control. And then there is that desire to stand pat in order to keep one’s winning hopes alive for as long as possible, and therefore they do nothing and wait for the dealer to make a move. As you already know from reading any responsible blackjack source, even with the worst upcards possible (5 or 6), the dealer will only bust 42%-43% of the time, so it is patently obvious that doing nothing is not a wise strategy at all.

Here’s another myth – that luck always seems to run in streaks. This idea sometimes leads to the player increasing bets after wins and decreasing after losses. On the other hand, there is a school of thought many people subscribe to which advocates increasing (usually doubling) bets after losing, and decreasing after wins. This is all based on an interpretation of the so-called “law of averages” which theorizes that sooner or later you would have to win. There is a familiar name for this betting strategy – the “Martingale,” and most people can tell you that it can easily lead to ruin, since it’s quite possible to keep losing hands and soon be over the house limit, paralyzing the system and one’s session at the same time.

Don’t get paralyzed. Take note of where the psychological obstacles can be, and do your utmost to overcome them.
