Ok, this is for real. I am headed to Atlantic City for a night. I have decided to take $2000 with me. I need a plan on turning that $2000 into $7000 ??. What do you think my plan should be? I was thinking about placing a sports bet for $1000 right away. Taking $500 and playing blackjack for a while. If the game wins, drop $2000 on the next game. I know this all sounds a little stupid, but I can use it to have a little fun, so that’s what I’m doing to do. Be stupid and have some fun. 

 

Any plan you think would be best, shoot me your opinions 

 

thanks boys!

I have been killing Baccarat for a couple weeks now.  It's really the best odds in the casino.  And a very simple game. The Asians are really superstitious characters.  Everybody is so serious about keeping a score card.  I'm usually the only white dude in the entire pit and the only one NOT using a score card.  So anyway, they all use score cards but always wait and see if I'm betting Player or Banker and follow me all the time so why are they keeping score???  Oh, you are "Wary Rucky".  LOL.  Makes no sense whatsoever.  It's hilarious.

Play Baccarat and just use a cautious version of Martingale.  Don't double up if you lose.  Just increase your wagers slightly after a loss.  On your $2K bankroll start with a $50 wager.  If lose then bet $75.  If lose then bet $175.  And so on.  When you win then go back down to the original $50 wager.  Before you know it you'll be plus $500 and then able to take a free shot at a sports wager.  That's how I would work a $2K bankroll.

Place 6 and 8 in craps. Hope for a hot shooter. 

Baccarat is great, but can be very,very streaky. I've seen 10 or more player or banker streaks and martingaling could kill you if your on the wrong side.

Here's how you get around that in Baccarat...

Whatever shows up, Player or Banker, play the same again.  Just keep playing whatever came in the hand before.  Yes, you can get what they refer to as "Chop Chop" (alternating Player and Banker hands) but those seem to be a lot less prevalent than a repeating winner that will break up a chop chop..

Also, NEVER bet the "Tie".  The true odds are 14-1 and only pays 8-1.  It's a sucker bet just like other side bets like "Dragon".  The Player house odds are only 1.24% and the Banker house odds are only 1.06% so that's why you ONLY wager on Player or Banker when you play Baccarat.  And don't worry about the 5% winning Banker commission.  It's just the price of doing business.

Pick up a set of five. Practice put the dice exactly the same hit the wall exactly the same. Put down your money 100 and let it ride 5x and walk with your 7 g

You need $2,300
All it takes is 2 bets. You must hit the first bet.

$2,200 @ -110 win and now you have $4,300
Next bet
$3,300 @ -110 
Win go home with $7,300

Loose and you still have $1,000 to start all over with some ML wager

Go find 2 winners
Good luck,
GP

lmao some guy years ago posted his "idea" so that he wont lose all his money quickly is to bet 1100 on team X in a game and 1100 on team Y in a game so he basically is paying the casino $100 to "hold" his money because he didn't trust himself.  Gotta love old school covers degens

haven't been since they legalized sports wagering . A way to save a few bucks goto Travelocity,  you can usually find a good room with a huge discounted rate. But remember don't ask for.cavier and don parian champagne on a domestic beer budget.

I always thought blackjack played by the book and always consistent gave the player the best odds of the casino games. I should learn  Baccarat.

They don't have it at the casinos near me. There are a large number of Asian people at this one casino especially based on our local population. It seems like the majority play blackjack but in a different way. There are side bets at 9-1 and side bet for top 3 (3 of a kind, straight flush, and another. I don't play it) They use the players two cards and dealer up card. I see many of them with $25 dollar bets on hand and both side bets. To me it's crazy, but it is going on all of the time.

tried to understand the angle. All I can think is there was a hotel room comp and dinner for high rollers spending a grand bets. The two bets comp was a2 nights and 2 meals costing 450 hence the 200 loss was a plus 250 gain in living expenses. Outside of this it a.sure way to lose money......
